Successful Subclass 801 Permanent Partner Visa

The Applicant and Sponsor came to Immigration Solutions Lawyers (ISL) seeking help with a Subclass 801 Permanent Stage Partner visa application.

The Sponsor and Applicant met in Australia, started a relationship and shortly after commenced cohabitation. The couple entered into a genuine and committed de facto relationship, over this time they came to rely on one another both emotionally and financially.

The Applicant and Sponsor lodged their own Subclass 820 Partner visa two years earlier which was successful.

Under the current two-stage partner visa processing arrangements applicants need to hold the Subclass 820 visa for two years after the lodgement of the application before they can lodge a Subclass 801 visa.

This means that 820 visa holders are usually required to wait two years before their 801 visa application is able to be finalised. In order to be eligible for a subclass 801 visa, you must be able to satisfy the following criteria:

  • You must hold a subclass 820 visa;
  • You must continue to be sponsored;
  • You must still be the sponsor’s partner; and
  • Two years must have elapsed since the lodgement of the subclass 820 visa.

However, the Applicant looked for ISL’s assistance since she was unsure if there were disclosure and character issues regarding the Subclass 820 application. The applicant advised she might have unknowingly not provided information to the department during the Subclass 820 application, however she was not sure.

ISL was able to compile a detailed character submissions, provide the correct information needed for the department and the necessary compelling evidence to prove that the Applicant and Sponsor were in a genuine and committed relationship.

ISL was able to obtain a successful Subclass 801 Permanent Partner Visa grant for the Applicant and Sponsor.
