Partner Visas for Kiwis in Australia

A partner visa requires you to be the spouse, fiancé or de facto partner of an Australian citizen, Australian Permanent Resident or a Protected Special Category Visa holder. There are several types of partner visa that include de-facto and there is also a fiancé visa. The kind that you will need to apply for will depend on whether you are currently in Australia or New Zealand and whether you intend to marry your partner before or after you receive your visa.

There are many types of visas available in Australia and their requirements change quite frequently, a professional opinion will be able to assist you in finding the quickest path to permanent residency for you.  And, since permanent visa applications can be costly and take ages, a Registered Migration Agent can help you avoid having your application rejected.  Remember you do not get a refund if you complete the wrong visa application.

    RE: long distance relationship


    I’m a NZ Citizen living and working in Australia. I am not a dual citizen.

    My partner is moving to Australia to be with me in about a years time.

    My question is: We will have to get married in order for him to be able to work & live in Australia. Do you know if the marriage is to be performed in NZ or in AU?

    many thanks – Eileen
