    Getting Married, I have PR, parter is on a work visa

    Hi, current situation is planning to get married in second half of this year. I have PR and partner is on a working visa. He will be eligible for PR in late 2020 and plans to apply for PR.

    When we marry, will there be any impact to his current work visa? He doesn't need to change to any kind of dependent or working spouse visa until he is eligible for PR next year?

    Appreciate any advice on this matter

    He doesn't have to change but it may benefit him to be on a dependent visa as will allow him to leave his job, open his own business, etc. Most people I know who were in that situation have changed to a dependent visa.

    Great, that's pretty straightforward. Many thanks
