Already have a visa

I’ve lost my job, can my partner be the principal applicant instead?

There are a couple of visas that might be right for you; read here for the options.

Option A: Apply for a partnership work visa

If your partner can apply for a work visa in their own right, you can apply for a partnership-based visa.
