PARTNER AND PARENT VISAS
Bring your family together. At Modern Migration Australia, we specialise in parent and partner visa applications for Perth and the rest of Australia based sponsors.
A partner or spouse visa allows citizens, permanent residents and eligible NZ citizens in Perth and the remainder of Australia, to apply to sponsor their spouses, partners and fiancés to join them in Australia. Likewise, parent visas allow children to sponsor their parents to live in Australia and complete the family circle in your new home.
There are, of course, many criteria to meet for these types of visas. The criteria also varies depending if the family member you are seeking to sponsor is living in Australia or overseas.
Contact an experienced partner visa agent and parent visa agent in our Perth Office for information and assistance on applying for this type of visa.

Subclass 820 Partner (Provisional) / Subclass 801 Partner (Residence) – Onshore
The Subclass 801/820 visa combination reflects the ‘qualifying’ and qualified components of these visas. A successful visa applicant will be granted as an ‘820 provisional visa’ that will be in effect for 2 years.
If, after 2 years, the visa holder is still in the relationship or for select reasons is no longer in a relationship, they will, generally be granted an ‘801’ permanent resident visa. The 801 visa is a PR Visa.
Subclass 309 partner visa (provisional) / subclass 100 partner visa (migrant) – offshore
This visa is essentially the offshore version of the onshore ‘820/801’ partner or spouse visa, except that the applicant(s) is living overseas rather than in Australia at time of application. The other difference is that couples intending to marry can also use this visa. Talk to us about how this visa can work for you so your partner can gain PR in Australia.
Subclass 300 Prospective Marriage “Fiancée” (Temporary) – Offshore
If you are engaged to a person who is outside of Australia and you cannot meet the “Partner Visa” criteria (i.e. unable to prove a history of a shared life together) this visa may be a viable choice for reuniting you with your loved one.
With the help of your partner visa agent you can be reunited with your loved ones no matter where you are in Perth, Australia, or around the world. Call us now on +618 6555 7718.

The Remaining Relative Subclass 115 (Migrant – Offshore) and Subclass 835 (Residence – Onshore) visas allow families to sponsor a remaining relative living overseas to come to Australia.

An Aged Dependent Relative Subclass 114 (Migrant – Offshore) and Subclass 838 (Residence – Onshore) require that the person is supported by a qualifying Australian Citizen, Permanent Resident or Eligible New Zealand National.
