Demonstrating Proof of Residency in Australia

In Visa Application by Partner Visa Co

If you need to check your Visa Status in Australia, you can check for free using VEVO.

If you are applying to sponsor your partner for an Australian partner visa and you hold permanent residency in Australia, then as part of the application you will need to demonstrate that you are usually resident in Australia.

If you are an Australian citizen, you do not need to demonstrate proof of residency in Australia.

How do you demonstrate proof of residency in Australia?

For applications to the Department of Home Affairs, there are several documents that can be used to demonstrate residency.

Documents to provide include:

  • Notice of Tax Assessment from the ATO for the last few years
  • Rental Agreement
  • Mortgage Documents
  • Utilities bills sent to your address
  • Drivers License and Car Registration sent to your address
