Hi I am a Permanent resident of Australia. I am originally from India. Been here in Australia for two and a half years now. Recently got married in India during my holidays in Dec 17. My wife is a wildlife biologist. I wish to do an on shore application for her. i.e. Subclass 820. I do not wish to do the offshore application as that would mean she would need to be in India till a decision is made on her application which would be a long time and long distance is a bummer!
On what visa should i first bring her to Australia?
If it is tourist visa then would it be ok for her to mention in the letter she writes to the consulates that we plan to do filing for partner visa 820 once she is here. Cause I recall reading in the Partner Migration Booklet that it is important that a no further stay clause should NOT be there on your substantive visa (An visa other than a bridging visa or a Criminal Justice visa) i.e. tourist visa in this case.
Also once she is here, if we fill in and apply for her partner visa does that mean that the bridging visa for her to legally stay in Australia is immediately granted?
