The Partner/Spouse Visa Subclass 801 is the Permanent version of the partner visa we discussed in our previous article. Australia is surely among the best living destinations globally, and the Partner/Spouse Visas in Australia allow the spouse or de facto partner of a permanent Australian resident to live in Australia indefinitely.
In this article, we will further discuss the Partner Visa subclass 801 which is a permanent visa offered by the Australian government.
What is the Partner Visa Subclass 801?
Especially for the holders of the Partner Visa subclass 820 which is a temporary visa, Subclass 801 is the permanent Partner Visa in Australia that allows the holder to live, study and work indefinitely in the country. Since this is a permanent visa, you need to hold the Partner Visa subclass 820 (Temporary) to be able to apply for Subclass Visa 801.
