New Australia Partner Visa Rules from 2019

Australia has pushed significant changes to its partner visa programs where Australia citizens or permanent residents sponsor their spouse from overseas. The decision for such changes has been made after a thorough review of the partner visa system and misuse of the visa program especially not meeting sponsors obligations and domestic violence cases. Recommended amendments are still in Senate to be passed but it is understood they can be implemented anytime between January to June 2019.
