As you may be aware, you can only travel to Australia if you are an Australian citizen, a permanent resident, an immediate family member of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or are a New Zealand citizen usually resident in Australia.
Travellers who have a compassionate or compelling reason to travel to Australia will need to have an exemption from the Australian Border Force Commissioner.
You are only considered to be an immediate family member if you are:
- a spouse
- a de facto partner
- a dependent child/ren
- a legal guardian.
Partner (subclasses 100, 309, 801, 820) visa holders can come to Australia. You do not need to request an exemption.
However, you may need to provide the Department of Home Affairs with evidence of your relationship.
Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa holders can’t come to Australia at the moment.
We at Global Strategic Law are committed to providing you with the most up to date information on changes to partner visas due to COVID 19 restrictions.
