AUSTRALIAN PARTNER VISAS, TYPES AND DIFFERENCES
Prospective Marriage visa for applicants located outside of Australia.
This visa can be granted if the applicant and the sponsor don’t have a long-standing relationship but have met in person at least once.
If this is your case, the Prospective Marriage visa is the first substantial step towards a partner visa.
This is a short-term temporary visa that is granted for a period of 9 to 15 months. During this time, the applicant must arrive in Australia and enter into an official marriage with the sponsor.
Partner visa for onshore applicants.
Applicants can apply for this visa if they are already in Australia and have been in a partner relationship with the sponsor for at least 12 months or less in the case of registering de-facto relationship or official marriage.
If this is your case, the onshore partner visa is your first stage (out of two) for obtaining Permanent Residency in Australia with partner sponsorship.
This is a temporary visa that is granted until the decision is made on PR 801/100 visa, where after 2 years from the date when you applied for 820 visa, you have to prove your relationship with the sponsor again and can apply for the second-stage permanent partner visa.
Partner visa for offshore applicants.
Applicants can apply for this visa if they are NOT in Australia and have been in a de-facto or married relationship with the sponsor for at least 12 months or less in the case of registering de-facto relationship in Australia.
If this is your case, the offshore partner visa is your first stage (out of two) for obtaining Australian Permanent Residency with partner sponsorship.
This is a temporary visa that is granted until the decision is made on PR 801/100 visa, where after 2 years from the date when you applied for 309 visa, you have to prove your relationship with the sponsor again and can apply for the second-stage permanent partner visa.
Permanent partner visa for applicants in or outside of Australia.
An applicant can apply for this visa if they have to be in a de-facto or married relationship with the sponsor for more than 2 years from the first-stage temporary visa application lodgment.
ATTENTION, there may be exceptions for some cases, read further about them.
These visas are permanent residency visas that allow you to live in Australia permanently and may be eligible for Australian citizenship.
Partner visa for New Zealand partner applicants.
This visa allows family members of New Zealand citizens to temporarily reside in Australia but does not provide eligibility for a permanent visa or New Zealand citizenship.
HOW TO PROVE A RELATIONSHIP FOR A PARTNER VISA
To obtain a partner visa, the applicant and sponsor must provide substantial evidence of the genuineness, sincerity, and long-lasting relationship. To maximize the chances of a positive outcome on your partner visa application, we recommend submitting a significant amount of solid evidence. Just a marriage certificate or birth certificate of your children always will be not enough.
There are four groups of evidence for partner relationships: financial, household, social, and commitment. You must present evidence from each group to get a positive visa outcome.

In other words, regardless of your location at the moment of visa application lodged, potentially two visas can be granted together.
