This includes immigration as a (spousal) partner of an Australian citizen or an Australian permanent resident (partner visa).

What this visa allows you to do:
Applications can be made both in Australia and abroad, depending on your needs.
For onshore applicants, there are two types of partner visas:
A temporary visa (subclass 820) and a permanent visa (subclass 801). Even though they are technically different, applications for each are made together and included under the same fee.
Temporary visas are the ancestor to permanent visas, which launch permanent Australian residency. On a temporary visa, you can work and travel to and from Australia. After two years, you will be reassessed for a permanent visa, upon supplying further documentation of your relationship.
Under special circumstances, you may be able to “fast-track” your permanent visa. This is a possibility if you and your partner have been in a relationship for 3+ years, or if you have been in a relationship for 2+ years and have children together.
If you lodge your visa outside of Australia, you are still eligible for a temporary visa (subclasses 309), followed by a permanent visa (subclass 100). Yet again, the permanent visa status is assessed two years after approval of the temporary visa (with possibility of expediting the process if you are in a long-term relationship and/or have children).
Once your temporary visa has been approved, you are able to come live in Australia while your permanent visa is being processed.
