A Partner Visa in 2016 comes with a $6,865 application fee and yet this has not prevented tens of thousands from applying for a visa to come to Australia to live with their partners. Approximately 131,218 partner visa applications were lodged over 2 years.
The success rate of Partner visas as a whole is approximately 78%, which is quite a high success rate. Why isn’t it 100%? This is because unfortunately some relationships do break down during the course of the application and there are also non-genuine relationships too.
Countries responsible for the majority of the Partner Visa applications are shown in the diagram above. It perhaps comes as no surprise that 7 out of the 9 countries have a very family oriented culture, which means spouses are willing to pay more to bring their other half to Australia.
