  • For those already in Australia wishing to stay with their partner.

  • Must be applied for while the applicant is in Australia. 

  • Must be legally married or in a defacto relationship (including same-sex couples).

  • Defacto relationships require the couple to have lived together for at least 12 months before submitting an application unless the relationship has been registered as a Civil Union / Partnership in QLD, ACT, NSW, VIC or TAS or if compelling circumstances exist.

  • Must show that the relationship is genuine and there is a commitment to a shared life together by providing evidence of the following:

    Financial aspects – shared bank accounts/ financial documents, mortgages, bills and purchases.
    Social aspects – testimonials from friends, travel/outings and activities together, photographs, invitations to events, social media conversations, emails.
    Nature of commitment – relationship history, future plans, large responsibilities together (children, joint assets/mortgages or financial liabilities).
