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!
Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia
The Form 40SP is the sponsorship form. 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.
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.
Form 80 is the character form. You can read all about how to complete this form over here.
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.
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.
