Partner Visa (Offshore)
What is this Visa?
This offshore Partner visa - subclass 309/100 is for applicants who are outside Australia.
There are 2 applications involved in the offshore Partner visa:

subclass 100 is a permanent visa
You lodge both the provisional and permanent visa as one application and pay one visa application fee.
Your application is processed in two stages, about two years apart. You are required to provide supporting documents and meet the visa requirements for both stages.
Some exceptions apply and you may be eligible to be assessed for the second stage earlier. Our team can assess your eligibility, please do not hesitate to contact us.
You must remain outside at the time of application and also when the provisional Partner visa subclass 309 is granted. However, you can be in or outside Australia when the permanent Partner visa subclass 100 is granted.
