Question can I get married in the US then come back to apply for an Onshore VISA in AUS?

Hi,


My American fiancee is currently on an ETA VISA. She will be coming back to Australia soon to be with me.

When her 3 months is up, we plan to both travel to the USA to get married so her family can be present.

After that, we want to apply for a partner VISA.

The question is, can we travel back to AUS after the wedding and apply for the Onshore Partner VISA? Or do we have to apply for the Offshore version while we are over there?


Thanks in advance for your reply!

You could do either. Obviously if your partner finds herself back in Australia on a valid visa without 'no further stay condition" (like an ETA) it would be a lot more convenient to apply in Australia, as she will be granted a bridging visa with full work rights.If you apply offshore, she'll have to offshore again for the grant of the visa, her stay in Australia will be limited and she will not have a bridging visa. If it was up to me, I'd get married in Australia in a simple ,civic wedding, apply for the visa, then do the big family wedding in the USA after, but that might not suit your particular circumstances.
