Hi Jewels,

From the little you have written in your post it appears that you situation is not a straight forward one. You have already stated that you are confused as you are being given conflicting advice by different people.

Considering the actions you take in regards to your partner's visa will have long lasting ramifications, I suggest you obtain professional advice based on your particular situation.

Although forums can be a good source of general advice, I believe that in this case you will only become more confused.

Kind regards,

Without going into a lot of detail jewells, your options are fairly straightforward;
1. Marry while he is here on an ETA and he applies for a partner visa.
If he is close to the end of the three months, perhaps a quick trip to New Zealand is required, for marriage needs at least a months notification to a minister/celebrant.
First return on an ETA is usually not going to be questioned too much.

2. Does the Bf have skills and is seeking an employer to sponsor a possibility.

3. If he left to return home or even being prepared to go to NZ for a bit longer a Proposed Marriage Visa could be applied for.

Have a look at details via http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/family/visa-options.htm
