Couples who are legally married are able to apply for a spouse visa when one of you is an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
The application is made up of two parts – the sponsorship and the visa application. The Australian citizen or permanent resident acts as the sponsor.
The visa can be applied for either (on-shore) in Australia or from outside Australia (off-shore)
If you apply on-shore you will be entitled to a bridging visa which will have the same conditions as the visa you are applying for. This option is not available if you apply off-shore.
In some circumstances, such as a long term spousal relationships or those with children, your visa may be made permanent from when granted. This is at the discretion of the Australian immigration.
A range of evidence must be provided to support your spouse visa application including:
- Your marriage certificate
- Witness statements from family & friends confirming your relationship
- Relationship statements from each of you
- Joint financial/legal commitments
- Evidence of sponsor's employment
- Knowledge of each other's personal circumstances
The fees for the spousal visa are:
£ 60.00 initial registration fee
$ 7000.00 AUD government fee (£ 3900.00 approx)
£ 995.00 administration fee
(can be paid in two parts) GST (Goods and Services Tax) can apply.
