Change partner on 189 PR visa

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am guessing this is not going to be easy but does anyone know what's involved with getting my partner changed on my 189 PR visa? I split up with the ex partner 2 years ago and I have been seeing a new girlfriend for over a year now. I have been across to validate my visa, my final entry date is Feb 2021.

Any advice would be appreciated!

 

Thanks

Scott

Hi Scotty,

As your PR has already been granted, it would (I imagine), now be a case of your new girlfriend applying for a partner visa.  If you split with your ex prior the visa grant, you should have informed immigration of the change of circumstances.

You can't just swap her on your visa. You will need to sponsor her for a partner visa. You can only do this once you are living in Australia and the process takes 12 to 24 months.

hahaha JaseandAnne - who know's it might be the call come 2021. I will be leaving it last minute to come as I am earning really good money here in Aberdeen in the oil industry just now.
