New Australian partner visa forms now available

Published: 02/07/2009

The new Australian visa application forms are now required from all foreign nationals applying for a family-class fiancée, partner or marriage visa to come to Australia, with the old forms no longer accepted as of 1stJuly 2009. Applications submitted using the old forms will be rejected. It is important to be aware that, even though the new 40SP and 47SP forms look very similar, there are some differences, so it is imperative that the new form is used for all applications.

The DIAC processing fees have increased considerably, from its previous AUD$1420 up to AUD$1705 for offshore subclass 300 prospective marriage applications and subclass 309 spouse / partner visa applications, and from AUD$2105 to AUD$2525 for onshore subclass 820, subclass 801, subclass 829 and subclass 814 visa applications.
