What is an EETV?

Hi, I'm brand new on this forum and was hoping someone would help me with a question. I am currently on a 457 and about to apply for a 820 with my Aussie partner, Im from the uk. However It's sooo expensive to apply and I noticed an extended eligibility temporary visa is heaps cheaper. Can anyone tell me what this means or if I would be eligible to apply?
Thanks in advance

There's no "cheap route" when it comes to spouse visas, Gms88. I've done a little research and it turns out that this verbiage on the Form 990i (which I'm guessing is where you heard of this) doesn't mean quite what you're thinking.

Spouse with transitional Extended Eligibility
Temporary Visa (EETV) $360
Applies to people who:
– currently hold a Transitional (temporary) visa; and
– were granted this visa on the basis that they
satisfied the requirements for the grant of an
extended eligibility entry permit under the
Migration Regulations 1989.
This cost quoted is for people already holding an EETV to apply for a Partner Visa. You would have to already be a holder of this visa in order to qualify, and they stopped giving these visas out, it would appear, back in the early 90s, since that is the most recent reference I can find to someone who actually holds one.
