Partner visa covers those people who are engaged, married, or have a de facto relationship with a citizen of Australia and want to be with their partner in Australia. Irrespective of their relationships' nature, all such couples are eligible to apply for this visa (Temporary or Permanent). In accordance with their relationship's category, it will depend upon the evidence or proof which they need to present in order to support their applications. Following are the visas that fall in this category:
