The partner visa is intended for those whose partners are citizens or permanent residents of Australia, in order to provide them with a common life in Australia.
These are visas that are processed on two levels, so it is first necessary to apply for a temporary visa and if you get it, you will spend a period in Australia until you get the final answer if you have a permanent visa. Offshore and Onshore visas differ from where you apply, so if you are outside Australia you first apply for a temporary 309 visa, and if you are already in Australia you are applying for 820 visa. Later on, based on which was the first visa you received, you apply for permanent visa, subclass 100 or 801.
A temporary visa allows you to stay in Australia until a final decision is made on a permanent visa. During this time you can work, study, travel from and back to Australia in an unlimited number of times. In addition, you can pay Australian health insurance and up to 510 hours of free English language lessons provided by the Adult Migrant English Program.
A permanent visa, along with the benefits of a temporary visa, allows you to stay in Australia permanently. In addition, you will be able to sponsor relatives for different visas, and if you meet all other requirements, apply for Australian citizenship.
The fee for processing a visa application, costs 8.085AUD if you apply for an Onshore or Offshore visa. The average application processing time for a temporary visa is from 13 to 18 months. A decision to grant a permanent visa is awaited an average of 2 years.

Elena is a wonderful person who was patently answering on all questions and who was not giving false hope. She was always positive and trustworthy.
Future Option met all our expectations. My husband and I were not sure whether it would be possible to get a student visa. However, they made every effort to ensure that all documents were in the best order. Even now, when we got the visa, Future Option team provides us support and is available for all the questions we have. Best recommendations for this agency!
Elena helped us to fulfill our dreams so I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of studying and living in Australia. She was extremely professional during the whole procedure and visa application so it was my pleasure to work with her.
I am really satisfied with Elena's professional approach. Her support, counseling and commitment were on a very high level through the whole process of gathering documents and visa application.
I would like to thank Elena on the amazing service she gave me through the whole process. This was huge step for me and in every moment I had Elena's full support.
