This may have a major impact on on-shore applicants and their ability to lodge a Partner visa application in situations where there is a visa expiring and timing is critical.
DIBP advises that they intend to process sponsorship applications ‘within 3 weeks’ unless there are sponsorship or character issues of concern.
If you are eligible for a Partner (Subclass 820/801 or 309/100) or Prospective Marriage (Subclass 300) visa to Australia and you are considering applying, we would highly recommend ensuring you lodge prior to 1 July 2017 in order to avoid these changes.
Heenan and Browne Visa and Migration Services is happy to provide an assessment on your eligibility for Partner Migration, as well as advice and assistance with lodgement. If you are a sponsor with a relevant offence and/or significant criminal record, we recommend speaking with a Migration Agent before submitting a Partner application.
