Online facility makes application easy for partner visas

Applying for a partner visa to Australia has become faster and easier with the introduction of a new online facility. The immigration department aims to process at least 75% of applications with the new online system, ensuring a more effective processing system.

Applicants for a partner visa to Australia can now apply on the website of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP.) They can create, submit, pay for and manage all online applications in the one online system.

The changes will make the application process much easier, according to Hannibal Khoury, an MARA registered agent. 'Online access to these visas is a huge step forward streamlining the applications process which in turn delivers time and cost savings to companies and time poor applicants applying for this visa,' he explained.

The usual processing time for Partner visas is six to eight months, however with this online system this process will be speeded up considerably.

Meanwhile, processing times for the Significant Investor Visa, which has a nine month waiting time, are also to be speeded up. Scott Morrison, Minister for immigration and citizenship, stated he wants these applications to be fast tracked.
