Australia Married – Partner Visa subclass 309
This visa is commonly known as a Marriage or partner visa but the correct terminology is a partner visa subclass 309. This visa application states that you and your Thai partner are already married in Thailand and you wish to live in Australia together.
When this visa is awarded it is now an indefinite resident permit and does not have an expiration date. Within a two year period of the issuance of the visa the man and wife will be called for an interview by the Australian Immigration office. If the office feels that the relationship is still genuine everything will be fine. Getting your wife fixed firmly into the Australian lifestyle is very important for her welfare and her future Immigration status .
An Australian marriage visa application is extremely difficult and should be controlled from Thailand. It is very difficult to control from Australia as the application has to be submitted in Thailand and the applicant’s interview is held in Thailand and conducted in the Thai and English languages. So, steer clear of services in Australia. The application and interview training for the applicant is nearly impossible from Australia unless the applicant is prepared to jump on a plane at a moment’s notice.
Marriage / partner visas stages have to be structured from start to finish to make sure that the paperwork is submitted in a professional way and that the Thai applicant is properly prepared for their interview. Please remember: One mistake on an application form in the interview can end in disaster. Those are very expensive mistakes to make.
While the visa application is controlled from Thailand, the husband is not needed in Thailand for the application to be processed. With our help the visa can be issued whilst the sponsor is in Australia. Also due to the long processing time of the visa application, once submitted your Thai wife can apply for a tourist visa to cut down on the time that you are apart from each other.

Our professional fee includes the following
Translations, medical examinations, police check, document preparation, submission, collection, helping your Thai wife through the full process.
Also included in our fee are all costs incurred during the visa application, including the embassy fee, currently 180,400 baht. Translations, medicals, police checks, etc, do not increase our fee. If the wife has children from a previous relationship and they are included in the process, this will increase the embassy fee. Yes, we pass that fee on to you.
How you start the process
You only pay a 10,000 baht deposit to start the process and when the visa is ready for submission you will pay the Embassy fee required which is currently 180,400 baht. When the visa has been awarded you pay our professional fee 50,000 Thai baht remaining balance, nothing more and nothing less. No visa then no professional fee.
What we do not pay for
It must be noted that if your Thai partner has children from previous relationships they will also need medical exams, even if not traveling to Australia. If they are over 15 years of age a police check will also be required. If the children are not traveling then the client must pay for any child’s medicals, etc, separately as our fees only cover the applicant.
As you may gather from the above, if your application is unsuccessful then we don’t get paid our professional fees. We take this risk every day so that you don’t have to. How can we do that? Because we are completely confident in our abilities – and you can be, too.
