A brief overview of partner visa Australia

Then you need the Australian Partner Visa!

The partner visa is designed so that either you or your partner/spouse can come and live in Australia depending on a temporary or permanent basis. However, if you want to live in Australia as a permanent resident, you must obtain a temporary version of the visa before receiving a permanent visa.

If you want to become a permanent citizen, then, the applicant should apply for both temporary and permanent visas at the same time. The applicant must also request this visa while in Australia. Although there can be a significant variation in processing times for the visa, the processing period for the permanent visa is attached to the staying period of the temporary visa.
