Visa Options

Prospective Marriage VISA (Subclass 300)

The Prospective Marriage Visa 300 allows engaged partners to reunite in Australia. Marrying within nine months, you may then apply for the Partner visa.

Key Information:

  • Applicants must be outside Australia both at the time of application and visa grant.
  • If the applicant and sponsor marry during the processing of the application for a Prospective Marriage visa, the application may be transferred to that of a Partner visa.

The Partner Visa enables Australia permanent residents or citizens to sponsor their married or de facto partners or fiance to live in Australia permanently.

  • Consists of two stages: a temporary partner visa lasting two years (820 and 309) and a permanent visa stage (801 and 100).
  • Applicants need to be sponsored by an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen.

Common Questions

Where do I start?

Understanding the different pathways and deciding on the one that suits your circumstances is the first step. 

For an overview of your options, download our guidebook: Reunite with your loved one.

Then, book your appointment.

The earlier you seek advice on the best visa option for your family and what evidence you will need for sponsorship – the better decisions you can make. Getting advice is the key first step.

Do I really need a migration agent?

We are biased, but yes!

Migration law is complex and subject to Government changes. A migration agent provides advice, prepares applications and liaises with the Department of Home Affairs on your behalf.

We believe that rules show us the pathway to what’s possible. Keeping on top of the current rules means that we offer the right advice.
