Types of partner visas
Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300): This is for people who are outside Australia and want to come to Australia to marry their partner
How the Partner visa application works
Stage 1: When you apply for either onshore and offshore Partner visas, you’ll first be granted a temporary visa. Onshore applicants get the 820 temporary visa and offshore applicants get the 309 temporary visa. See here for how the Prospective Marriage visa works.
Stage 2: You can then apply for a permanent visa 2 years later (from when you first applied for your temporary visa)*. Onshore applicants get the 801 permanent visa and offshore applicants get the 100 permanent visa.
Your temporary visa remains active until you get your permanent visa.
Exception: You may get your permanent visa right away if you:
have been married or been in a de facto relationship for 3 or more years
have a child together

Why You Should Use A Migration Agent from Skylark Migration
How migration agents can help
It is your job (as the applicant) to convince the case officer that your relationship is genuine.
Reviewing hundreds of applications every year can often make case officers skeptical. They expect you to be able to provide certain documents (e.g. lease agreements, joint bank accounts, utility bills, statements)...because everyone else has been able to!
Experienced migration agents can increase your chances of a successful application, because they:
Handle visa applications on a daily basis, and know what case officers are looking for
Know how to present the evidence in the best way, so it's easier for the case officer to review and approve your application
Know how to avoid the red flags that invite further scrutiny
Know how to make up for areas of weaknesses in applications
