We know that only by speaking to a gay immigration lawyer or registered migration agent do LGBT migrants really receive the knowledge and expertise they need while experiencing the sensitivity and confidentiality necessary to handle the variety of legal issues they face.
Many migration firms claim to be gay-friendly, but not many have the knowledge, understanding, compassion and LGBT experience as Embark Migration’s Managing Director.
Prospective Marriage, De facto And Spouse Partner Visa Experts For Same Sex Couples
Major legal changes have provided new immigration benefits to same-sex couples. Same-sex partners now have access to immigration benefits that were previously only available to heterosexual couples. If one spouse is already an Australian citizen, permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen, a couple may use their marital status to obtain a visa for the other spouse.
Accurate and Trusted Same Sex Partner Visa Eligibility Assessments
All gay and lesbian couples in a recognised de facto or married relationship are now eligible to apply for 300 Prospective Marriage visas and onshore and offshore 820 and 309 partner visas. For each of these visas, the applicant’s will have to show satisfactory proof that their relationship is genuine.
The cost of applying for an Australian partners is one of the most expensive in the World. Our experts make a detailed eligibility assessment of all cases before any application is made. Don’t risk costly mistakes such as having a visa refused unnecessarily.
Pathway To Permanent Residence for Same Sex Couples Through Marriage Visas
Same sex marriages are now legally recognised in Australia which means that married couples can now be approved for Australian residency through a marriage-based case. Applying for permanent residence through a marriage visa will be a two-stage process for applicants who are in Australia, or even a three-stage process for engaged couples who plan to marry in Australia.
Partner visas can take a long time to be finalised by the immigration department. This delay and the uncertainty of not knowing if your visa will be approved causes stress and anxiety for many gay and lesbian couples. With careful planning and preparation of your case, most cases we manage are granted well before the lengthy processing time advised by the Australian Government.
