I called the Australian embassy in Manila to clarify and was told it doesn't matter even if I create my partner's IMMI account whilst I'm onshore myself as a sponsor.
Create the immi account is also different. Did they say you could fill out out your partner's offshore visa app for them from in Australia?

As I previously mentioned I had no problem at all in creating an account for my wife's nephew's Visitor Visa application, likewise I had no problems in filling in our details and uploading documents to the application.

But a visitor visa can be applied from inside or outside of Australia whereas an offshore partner visa is not meant to be applied for from inside Australia.

So the question is regarding partner visas, for my own curiosity, and whether a 309/100 application can be made from an onshore computer without the use of a VPN when the applicant is offshore.

I know that an immi account can be created anytime from anywhere and document uploads can be done anytime from anywhere, but the actual application is what I'm curious about.

I know that in the past an applicant was onshore and tried to begin the application onshore and was going to submit it offshore, and the application would not allow them in. But if the applicant is offshore, can the application still be made onshore?

I'm sure it can be since the passport will be showing the applicant as offshore. I'm just one of those people who like confirmation for future reference.

your IP address is no longer in Australia.
Problem solved, if it ever existed!
Update!
Getting old is a terrible thing,I completely forgot that last year I had no problem creating an account for my wife's nephew in the Philippines to apply for a visitors visa!

Its linked to the passport. You'll get an error message as attached.

I think you have the answer,it may not be the IP location but the physical l location of the Passport holder that is being detected.

Thanks for confirming that Jteam, it is the location of the passport holder that is the key.

Looks like I'll be able to create an immiAccount but won't be able to upload docs.

If i do attempt to upload , will that altogether block the immiaccount and prevent it from proceeding further even if it's the primary applicant ( my partner offshore ) who'll continue where I left off?

As Jteam has confirmed the applicant must be out of the country, that is determined from their passport.
So as long as they are not in Australia it appears it is ok.

I'm a Canadian applicant for PMV 300 lodged in Canada 10th December 2017. All docs/health/Aus and Canadian checks etc uploaded. Don't believe any "red flags" in Application.

Every year I work in Australia June - Oct on a 457 work visa and based on timeframes for 300 looks like that is not an option for me in 2018 (457 visa also in process of being overhauled by Aus Gov). I believe that you can't apply for a 457 while a 300 is in process.

Are there any Canadian applicants for PMV 300 who have lodged in 2017 and received a grant? I'm assuming application reviewed in Ottawa!

Is there any hope of getting 300 visa granted within 7 months through Ottawa so I can join my fiancé in Aus, get married and live and work there?
