In general, migration has always been on the increase and will continue to increase despite the current global pandemic.
The below infographic provides a snapshot of this growth.
Since 1945, when the first federal immigration portfolio was created, over 7.5 million people have settled here. Approximately 30% of the population were born overseas which is one of the highest amongst all OECD countries.
Of course, despite the above, there are an equal number of unsuccessful attempts by prospective applicants.
The good news is Partner Visas have a high rate of grants as provided by a sample table below:
However, Partner Visa grants have recently reduced from 47,825 per year in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 years, down to 39,799 for the 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20 years due to an overhaul of the Federal Government’s Migration Program planning.
This is a 16.7% drop in partner visa grants.
Therefore, it is more important than ever to understand exactly what the legislation exactly requires in a partner visa application as the case officer will be assessing you against them.
That is why at Global Strategic Law, we aim to provide you with the most up to date guides and information on how to submit a successful Partner Visa.
