Emigrate With Your Australian Partner
Migration to Australia under the spouse visa category is for applicants who are married to either an Australian citizen, permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen.
The initial Australian spouse visa is granted for two years, after which time the applicant is required to show the relationship is still a genuine one.
Australian immigration under the spouse visa can lead to Australian permanent residence.
The main applicant must:
- Be sponsored by an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen;
- Be legally married to the sponsor and in a 'genuine, continuous relationship' with them which they intend to continue after arrival in Australia.
Health & Character
Australia has strict health and character requirements that must be met before any permanent Australia visa of more than 12 months will be granted. People attempting to migrate to Australia on an Australian spouse visa will be required to:
- Undergo a medical examination and chest x-ray undertaken by one of a panel of doctors selected by the Australian authorities, and;
- Obtain police certificates for all countries in which they have lived for more than 12 months in the 10 years leading up to the application.
Additional Information: An Australian spouse visa application will need to be supported by documentary evidence of the spousal relationship.
