Can we apply for a de facto partner visa to Australia from Philippines


In this week’s episode of our Weekly Q&A one participant asked:  Can we apply for a de facto partner visa?

The exact question was:

Is it possible to apply for a de facto partner visa, or do we need to get married first?

This is a common question, with many couples not in a position where they can legally get married. Annulments take time and cost money, and many an Australian Filipina couple would like to get together sooner rather than later. If you are in a genuine de facto relationship that has been in place for 12 months or more and can demonstrate that you are leading a shared life, then perhaps Down Under Visa can help you to be together in Australia?
