Does your current Visa have a “no further stay” condition? If so, it may not be possible to apply for an Australian Partner Visa from within Australia. You must apply for the Australian Partner Visa offshore or request an exemption.
Do you or your Australian Partner Visa sponsor have a substantial criminal record? Both you and your partner sponsor must pass the character test. It is a key criterion for a Partner Visa Australia grant otherwise, compelling reasons are required to invoke the exceptions.
Do you have significant health issues? An Australian Partner Visa applicant cannot be a burden to the Australian health system and you must show that you will not be a burden to the system.
Is the Australian Partner Visa applicant or Australian Partner Visa sponsor still in a married or de facto relationship with another person? If either you or your partner sponsor is still married to another person at the time of lodgement of the Partner Visa Australia application, then you will need to provide evidence that your previous relationship is no longer ongoing.
Have you and your partner sponsored been in a partner relationship for at least 12 months before the lodgement date? To be granted a Partner Visa Australia as a de facto partner, you and your partner sponsor must show that you have been in a committed de facto relationship for the entire 12 months immediately prior to lodging your application. This 12-month period is assessed from the time the relationship became a de facto partner relationship, and not from the time you first met.
Has the Australian Partner Visa sponsor ever sponsored anyone in Australia previously? You may not be eligible to be a partner sponsor if you have previously sponsored 2 other partners for migration to Australia or have sponsored another partner within the last 5 years or were sponsored as a partner yourself within the last 5 years.
