Last year the government announced that partner sponsorship would change – right now, you can lodge your sponsorship at the same time as lodging the partner visa application, but in the new system you will have to be approved as a partner sponsor before you can sponsor anybody to Australia.
These changes are now before the senate and once they are approved there, they can become law. It is unknown at this stage what extra charges will be involved and how long the process will take.
This means there’s no time to wait on lodging partner visa applications, act now to save yourself time and money before the new system comes in. Phone us today on 08 6161 9239 to schedule a consultation with one of our migration agents.
