We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Onshore Partner Visa Refusal Explained by Migration Expert

Onshore Partner Visa Refusal Explained by Migration Expert

Onshore Partner Visa Refusal – Why And What Can You Do?

Having onshore partner visa refusal can be very upsetting and stressful for you and your beloved partner. When an onshore Partner visa refusal happens, while you may be on a bridging visa or currently have no visa, unfortunately, you won’t be able to lodge another visa whilst in Australia.

The Department of Home Affairs calls this as a Section 48 Bar. A section 48 bar means that you cannot apply for any other visa from inside Australia.

This can be a very upsetting time for couples, having to separate just to re-apply for a new visa. When lodging a partner visa offshore, the applicant must remain offshore whilst a decision is being made on the application.

This might take months and sometimes years, depending on each applicant’s circumstances, meaning that the couple may be separated for some time.

Onshore Partner Visa Refusal

What Is The Reason For The Partner Visa Refusal?

The first thing you need to do after your partner visa got refused, ensures that you understand the reason for the visa refusal. There are many different reasons as to why a partner visa may have been refused. 

The reason can be; you provide wrong information or even bogus documents. Another reason is you break up with your partner and you can’t give clarification as to why the visa should be granted. In most cases, it is as simple as not enough evidence of a relationship being shown. 

Once you understand the reason why your visa was refused you will know what you need to do for when you reapply to ensure the success of your next application.

What Can You Do After Receiving An Onshore Partner Visa Refusal?

The next step would be to speak with a registered migration agent. Our migration agents will be able to analyze your case and circumstances surrounding it and will be able to determine what options you have in regards to being able to lodge an appeal.

In some cases, you might be able to have the decision reviewed by a merits review tribunal, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT). In order to do so, you will need to make a submission of compelling reasons as to why your partner visa application should be granted.

A section 48 bar can only be removed if you want to apply for a different kind of visa from onshore during the tribunal hearing and submission of compelling reasons as to why will also be required.

Your submission will need to be persuasive, captivating and convincing. Submission needs to be detailed and helpful to the tribunal member that is reviewing the appeal. It needs to demonstrate arguments that are well researched and prepared in order to ensure that your situation is understood and a positive outcome can be reached.
