If your partner is a New Zealand citizen who has been living in Australia, a partner visa may not be an option for you. Instead, you may be eligible for a temporary visa – New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship visa. (Please refer to Other visas)
The different types of Partner visas are known as ‘subclasses’. Each Partner visa subclass has its own set of criteria that must be satisfied in order for the visa to be granted.
