The numbers of Partner Visa Grants during the last three months of the 2019-20 year have appeared to drop substantially, when hearing reports of some Partner Visa applicants who have been waiting a long time.

The actual numbers of subclass 300, 309, 100, 820 and 801 grants has been:
24,910 grants in April to June 2020, down from
27,766 grants in April to June 2019.

However, those numbers are not that simple. It is not a simple drop of 10% for all visa classes. Some dropped by 100% (subclass 300 in April) others rose by 221% (subclass 820 in June).

The changes for the 3 months April to June 2020, from April to June 2019 were:

  • The subclass 300 Prospective Marriage Visa (PMV) saw a drop of 98.6%
