The new sponsorship system that was planned to start on 1 July 2017 has been delayed and might not start until 2018. In order to start the new system, the laws first have to be passed through Parliament and this has not yet happened. The new system will mean that you have to have a sponsorship approved before you can sponsor someone to Australia as your partner.

This means that even after 1 July, it will be possible to lodge partner visas without the extra time and cost of getting the sponsorship approved first.

If you’re planning to sponsor a partner to come to Australia, let us take away the stress of trying to apply on your own. Contact us today on 08 6161 9239 for a consultation with one of our migration experts.
