Sponsor Eligibility (Subclass 309 / 100)

Recommended Posts

Hello all!


Does anyone know if there is any limitations on partner sponsorship eligibility?


Basically, I'm an Australian PR, but since being granted PR, have only lived there for 1 month (came back with partner after her WHV expired in April 2012).


We're now wanting to apply for the Partner (Temporary and Permanent) (subclass 309 and 100) visas and everything looks fine, apart from a line on P16 of the 'Partner Migration booklet';


"If you are an Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, you are required to be usually

resident in Australia."


...nothing of this kind appears to be mentioned anywhere else and as it stands, I am NOT usually resident in Australia.


We undoubtedly satisfy all other requirements - Does anyone know if this will be an obstacle in terms of our chances of being granted these visas?


Thanks in advance fellow Poms in Oz
