The dual intent instructions have been updated with a section specific to spouses and partners who have an overseas application for permanent residence as a sponsored spouse or partner in progress. The new section includes factors for officers to consider when assessing dual intent for this group of applicants, particularly for those who have also applied for a temporary resident visa.
