Australian government has passed a new Migration Amendment bill (Family Violence and Other Measures) which is likely to bring vital changes to the way Australian partner visa is being applied. It will determine whether or not one can submit partner visa application while being in Australia at the time of loading the application. Let's find out more about the likely partner visa changes.
Expected Changes in Partner visa
New bill has been passed on December 10, 2018. However, it is not confirmed as to when exactly when it will come in to effect as a law. Let's find out the likely changes.
Once the new changes implemented, the partner will have to first lodge their sponsorship application and wait till it gets approved and then only lodge the partner visa application. The time to be taken for sponsorship decision is not known as of now. Presently, the total processing time is about 12-18 months.
Who will be affected by the new changes?
The Partner visa applicants who are left with the short time on their present visa will be asked to either lodge a genuine visa application that will permit them to live in the country, or leave Australia until the partner visa is approved. Moreover, till the time an appropriate visa application is lodged being in Australia, the applicant will not be eligible for a BVA, Medicare or (in some instances) full work rights.
What is ongoing Procedure?
A now in Partner permanent residence applicant requires to be sponsored by an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen. Together, the applicant and their partner submit their applications to the DHS.
Submitting an appropriate partner visa while being in Australia permits the applicant to acquire a Bridging Visa a (BVA) which becomes effective when their present visa expires. A person with BVA will then be able to stay in Australia until a decision is made on the partner application. Also, the BVA holder is also eligible for Medicare and have full work rights.
Hence, to avoid the negative affect of the changes on you, applicants are advised to lodge the partner visa application immediately after becoming eligible for the same. Though, the process looks simple, however, it may get complex if you miss out on important points or don't follow the guidelines already established. Hence, it is suggested to hire an experienced and registered immigration consultant for your Australian visa process.

Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
