Australia is a wonderful country with stable economy and developed infrastructure. It is one among those nations, which not only offer the multiple job opportunities to the skilled and talented immigrant workers from overseas, but also provide perfect settings to integrate and settle.
The Partner Visa or Spouse category visa of Australia is one among the key aspects of Australia immigration that raise the interest of applicants to explore the scope and opportunities of career in Australia. Through partner visa, the spouses or partners of the Australian permanent residents and citizens can come to live with their partners in Australia.
The Partner Visas, i.e. Subclass 309 and 100 Visa allows the spouses or partners of Australian Permanent Residents and Citizens to immigrate to and live with their partners in Australia. The partners or spouses of eligible New Zealand Citizens are also eligible to apply for Australian Partner Visa.
The Partner Visa Subclass 309 is a temporary visa (allocated first) that allows you to stay in Australia till the time the Permanent Visa, i.e. Subclass 100 Visa is processed.
To apply for Partner visa, as an applicant you must be either married or in a de facto relationship with any of the following:
The marriage needs to be legitimate as per the Australian law. If you are applying for partner visa as a de facto partner, then you must have been in a de facto relationship for at least 12 months.
Applying for the Australian Partner visa is a two stage process. Firstly, if you are married or in a de facto relationship (for at least 12 months), you can apply for the Subclass 309 visa in Australia. The application in fact, is submitted together for the both subclass 309 visa and Subclass 100 visa (permanent), while you pay for one visa only. If your application for Subclass 309 Partner visa (temporary) is successfully, you become eligible to be assessed for the Permanent visa, i.e. Subclass 100 Visa.
The subclass 309 visa is granted to you on a temporary basis, and based on the same; you can live in Australia temporarily, until your permanent visa is granted. After two years being on subclass 309 visa in Australia, you can supply additional documents to apply for the Subclass 309 visa. The immigration authorities will check your documents, and if everything is found correct, you will be granted Permanent visa, i.e. Subclass 100 Permanent Partner visa.
As already mentioned, Subclass 100 visa is a permanent visa and second stage of Partner visa application, when provisional visa (i.e. Subclass 309) has already been granted to the applicant. You can be assessed for Subclass 100 visa after 2 years of lodging of the application for Subclass 309 visa.

I had an excellent experience with Visas Avenue. Mr. Aditya from the Mumbai office, Mr. Nitin and my case manager Mr. Vijay Singh deserve a special mention. Visas Avenue made the entire Canada PR process look really simple. Huge credit to the team for their professionalism , regular updates and ability to handle critical situations effectively. Have recommended Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so!
The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.
A big thank you to the team assigned to my case. From gulabchand to kshama to jasmeet for starting the journey well with me, to Deepak and Amit for taking this long journey with me till date and lastly to Ruchika, who overlooked and spearheaded my journey from start to end. Thank you all coz this wouldn't be possible with out you all. Some of you have worked more on my case than others and I thank-you for bearing with us too. Apologies if I'm missing out on any names.

They really are the best consultants.Finally thank you very much for the entire Visas Avenue team.
