LGBT Visa | Gay Business Owner

Updated: May 19, 2021

LGBT+ Visa are a boutique, gay owned and operated business based in Sydney. The team are proud to be associated with the LGBT+ community in Australia and beyond. Our focus is to assist and advise Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, and other sexual and gender minorities; no matter where you are.

All members of the LGBT community who require professional advice in regard to a partner visa or a marriage visa are welcome; you are in the right place.

In the heart of Sydney, LGBT+ Visa are poised at the forefront of the developing area of immigration law. Our in house LGBT immigration consultants recognise even the subtlest of nuances that can make or break a gay visa application in Australia. As a minority group we face daily and difficult challenges throughout our life; immigration law and the visa process does not have to be one of those difficult or complex situations!

From an immigration perspective, the LGBTQIA community are treated exactly the same as heterosexual couples - there is no discrimination in the Australian immigration system. Emotionally however these 'sensitive' cases tend to be much different. Some Migration agents or lawyers may feel confident to 'handle' an LGBT or same sex visa application; few however have the experience, sensitivity and understanding it takes to effectively guide a gay, lesbian or transgender couple through the perils of the Australian immigration system.

LGBT+ Visa is at at the forefront of these issues that may poses difficulty; we handled some of the first same-sex visas when marriage equality was legalised in December 2017. Prior to the legislation change we managed and submitted spousal visa applications for same sex married couples. Even though discrimination existed within the legislative framework, the Department of Immigration were sympathetic to the cause of the LGBT community. Unknown to most, policy within the Department of Home Affairs dictated same sex marriages were recognised.
