You won't be able to check into a flight to Australia without a valid visa.

The passport is checked when departing the country and they check for a valid visa and the transit airport too.

They also check at the arrival airport too.

The airline verifies your visa status when you check in to board your flight. So you won't even got on the plane without a visa.

No I mean what if it looked like it wasn't going to be approved in time, so she gets a tourist visa about a week before we fly. Then a day before they tell us that it will be approved, but it isn't approved until say 10 hours after we arrive (we have already booked the flights). Could we wait for 10 hours before passing the immigration check point (the hallway between the plane and the checkpoint) until it is approved? If so, when they scan the visa, will it then show as a partner visa instead of the tourist visa?

Thanks for letting us know. That means if they are now up to July and stay on track at the current rate, we should hopefully have ours approved in July this year (we applied in October).

Probably not. They have staff there to stop people loitering so the only way to get around waiting is to hide in the toilet. Also the problem is with the landing card they will wonder why you waited so long to clear customs.

In answer to the question the visa will be whatever visa is valid when you clear customs in Australia.

Please let me know if you hear anything cause you also applied the same time as us.
