Partner Visa Application Forms in Australia

Partner visa applications (subclass 820, subclass 300 or subclass 309) all require a lot of forms – there are three main ones. And each seems longer and more intrusive than the last!

Partner Visa Application Forms are an integral part of the process when applying for a partner visa in Australia. These forms are designed to gather comprehensive information about the applicant and their partner, allowing the Department of Home Affairs to assess the genuineness of the relationship and determine eligibility for the visa.

Application for Migration to Australia by a Partner

The Application is the big one. It’s time consuming, probing and a bit confusing.

You can no longer use a paper for the partner visa 47SP application form. It must be completed online through your immi account.

Once you have logged into your Immi Account, select ‘Family’ and then ‘Stage 1 – Partner or Prospective Marriage Visa’. This form is completed by the applicant and requires detailed information about personal particulars, relationship history, and intentions in Australia. It is crucial to provide accurate and honest information while completing this form, as any inconsistencies or false information can have serious consequences on the application.

Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia

In addition to the application form, the Australian partner visa sponsor requirements include completing Form 40 (Sponsorship for a partner to migrate to Australia). This form focuses on gathering information about the sponsor’s eligibility and responsibilities, including financial and character requirements.

The Australian citizen or permanent resident partner needs to complete this form. Of the three, it is probably the easiest – and shortest – form.

This form can be done online through immi account and needs to be done after you lodge the Partner Visa Application, using the TRN to connect the applications. You can see a paper version here.

Form 80

Form 80 is the character form. You can read all about how to complete this form over here.

Form 888

These forms are to be completed by your friends and family in support of your relationship. They should be completed by an Australian citizen or permanent resident where possible. You can find everything you need to know about the Form 888 here.

Statutory Declarations

These are the statements that you and your sponsor make about your relationship. If you’d like guidance on what to include or the Commonwealth Statutory Declaration template, you’ll find it all here.

While it no longer has to be a statutory declaration, some applicants feel it adds weight to their application.

Both the applicant and sponsor must complete these forms and provide supporting documentation to demonstrate the authenticity and strength of their relationship.
