The partner visa (820 visa) is an onshore temporary visa allowing the applicant to remain in Australia with their partner. Two years after the subclass 820 visa is applied for, the applicant can re-submit their information for the determination of the Subclass 801 permanent residency partner visa.  Applicants who apply for the Subclass 820 visa will be granted a Bridging Visa to allow them to remain in Australia while their subclass 820 is determined after their current visa has expired.
