We couldn't hide our relationship when we applied for the 2nd tourist visa because we applied for it at the same time as the partner visa, but luckily we already had proof we had been a couple for 12 months. They granted the 2nd one pretty quickly and information from immigration suggests if they think the partner visa has a good chance of success they will usually allow a tourist visa while you wait for the grant.
Hi Gary, I am in the similar situation. I have submitted my PMV application in September 2012 and did medical early October, now my case is waiting for CO assigned. I am getting married in December 2012 in Bali then I will change my PMV to spouse visa. While waiting for the spouse visa process, we want to go together to Australia after the marriage on tourist visa. I have been to Australia 2 times on 1 month tourist visa. Your girlfriend was lucky to get a six months visa and I really hope I can get the longest stay tourist visa as being separated again is very hard. I am wondering if you prepared the tourist application by yourself or thru an agent? if you don't mind, could you pls let me know how you/girlfriend answered these questions on the form :
- how long do you wish to stay in australia....up to 3, six, 12 months
- why do you want to visit australia

I don't want to give an answer that give them impression that I would use the tourist visa to overstay if my spouse visa has not yet been granted.
