Two-Stage Visas

The Skill and Family streams include ‘two-stage’ visas, which provide a permanent residence pathway for visa holders from a provisional or ‘first stage’ visa to a permanent or ‘second stage’ visa.
While such pathways involve the grant of two visas, to avoid double counting, the visa holder is counted to the Migration Program at grant of the provisional or ‘first stage’ visa only.

With Partner Visas, this means counting the grant of the 309 or 820 as the statistic used for permanent migration numbers.
