Default Spouse visa

Can I apply for a spouse visa for my husband (and baby) If I haven't lived in Australia for more than a year? I was born and grew up in the UK, but want to move back to Australia with my family.

You can sponsor your husband for a partner visa and add your son as a dependant if you are an Australian citizen. There’s no residence requirement.

Are you an Australian citizen or do you have a visa which allows you to return?

Does the sponser have to apply first for approval, before the Partner Visa is applied for?

Thank you.

The sponsor needs to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

Not at the moment, although some agents are reporting that this may change at some point this year (possibly July)
