Note: DIAC has advised that this visa is closed to new applicants from 1 July 2009 and was repealed from that date. Spouse visas (subclasses 309/100 and 820/801) and Interdependency visas (subclasses 310/110 and 826/814) were replaced by new Partner visas (subclasses 309/100 and 820/801) from 1 July 2009.


Applications for Interdependency visas lodged before 1 July 2009, which met the eligibility requirements, were granted an Interdependency visa at both the temporary and permanent stages of the application after 1 July 2009.


Applications received after 1 July 2009 for Interdependency visa subclasses 310/110 have been processed as an application for the Partner visas (subclasses 309/100 and 820/801).
