This is for those interested in seeing how the numbers of Partner Visa Applications have changed since the 2006-07 year.
It is interesting to see how the offshore (subclass 309) partner visa application numbers used to be slightly more than the onshore (subclass 820) applications, back in the 2006-07 and 2007-08 years.
But in the recent years, the numbers of onshore (subclass 820) applications have been rising to around double the offshore (subclass 309) number.
Total Partner visa applications by subclass (primary and dependent applicants combined) lodged in each financial year between 2006-07 and 2019-20 were:

The numbers for the Permanent visa applications (subclasses 100 and 801) are almost identical, as it is a combined application.
For example, in 2019-20 the quoted application numbers were:
- 15,126 subclass 309 (offshore visa) applications.
- 15,127 subclass 100 (offshore visa) visa applications.
- 34,156 subclass 820 (onshore visa) visa applications.
- 34,156 subclass 801 (onshore visa) visa applications.
