Provisional Partner Visa (onshore) – Subclass 820

The Visa Subclass 820 is a type of visa in Australia, commonly known as the Partner Visa (Temporary). It is designed for individuals who are in a genuine and ongoing relationship with an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen. The subclass 820 visa allows the applicant to live in Australia temporarily while their permanent Partner visa application (subclass 801) is processed.

Here are some key points about the Visa Subclass 820:

  1. Temporary Residence: This visa grants temporary residence in Australia while the applicant’s permanent Partner visa application is being processed.
  2. Eligibility: To be eligible for the subclass 820 visa, the applicant must be in a genuine relationship with an eligible sponsor who is an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen.
  3. Application Process: The application process typically involves submitting evidence of the relationship, including proof of shared finances, living arrangements, and social commitments.
  4. Health and Character Requirements: Applicants must meet health and character requirements as part of the visa application process.
  5. Work and Study: Holders of the subclass 820 visa are generally allowed to work and study in Australia.
  6. Pathway to Permanent Residence: After holding the subclass 820 visa for a certain period and meeting other criteria, applicants become eligible to apply for the permanent Partner visa (subclass 801), which grants permanent residence in Australia.
