Parent Visa categories provide eligible parents of settled Australian citizens, settled Australian permanent residents or settled eligible New Zealand citizens with different  migration pathways to Australia. Depending on their circumstances, applicants may apply for an offshore or onshore visa.
Within the Family Stream of Australia’s annual Migration Program, a limited number of visa places are allocated to parent migration.However, there is a significant waiting period for a parent category visa. 
Partner category migration allows for the grant of a visa that permits married partners (ie. opposite- sex spouses) and de facto partners (including those in a same-sex relationship) of Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents and eligible New Zealand citizens to enter and remain permanently in Australia. Initially, partners who meet the legal criteria for the grant of the visa are granted a temporary visa. Later, a permanent visa may be granted following an eligibility period or, if there is a long-standing relationship or children of the relationship, soon after grant of the temporary visa.
Partner category migration also allows for the temporary entry to Australia of fiancé(e)s (intended spouses) of Australian citizens, permanent residents and eligible New Zealand citizens.
As the partner or fiancé(e) of an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, you do not have an automatic right of permanent residence in Australia. If you wish to reside permanently in Australia you must first apply for a permanent visa and be assessed against the legal criteria for the grant of that visa. 

The Australian Immigration Framework includes a certain visa sub-classes which enable Australians sponsor their only near relatives to live in Australia as permanent residents
