  2. Partner (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 100/801): This visa is for couples who have been granted a Partner (Provisional) Visa and have continued their relationship for the required period. It allows the applicant to live in Australia permanently and enjoy the rights and privileges of Australian permanent residency.
