The partner visa of Australia requires a relationship statement from the visa applicant and sponsor applicant. This is a chance to speak directly to the case officer and describe your relationship. 

You must complete the relationship statement carefully because it is integral to your visa application. The best opportunity for applicants is to write a relationship statement with the help of a case officer or registered migration agent to manage and lodge their visa correctly. 

The purpose of this statement is: 

  • Describe the nature of your relationship and how you met.
  • Detail your future plans.
  • Explain the nature of your households and shared commitments

This statement works as proof that your relationship is authentic and ongoing. This is also an opportunity to show your “relationship roadmap” for the future. It is a chance to present your relationship on your own terms, so it’s essential to get it accurate. The case officer will assess this document, so make sure it’s of good quality. 

It must be in easy words and approx. 2-3 pages long. The length will depend entirely on the applicant’s circumstance, e.g., you must describe any long separation time, etc.
