In outlining the situation here, would this qualify for work rights or not?

Thanks again.
From our own experience, as soon as the PMV is approved and she arrives in Australia on that visa, she will be able to work, and continue working throughout all the visas to come. 300 820 801.

If you apply offshore you won't have any work rights (or a visa) until the application is decided. As your partner is from Japan she could at least travel back to Australia on an ETA and stay for up to 3 months on each visit (without any work rights).

There are certainly benefits from lodging onshore, you wouldn't have to spend any time apart and your partner's work rights would continue.

By then you should be eligible to apply direct for the 820 visa, assuming evidence of relationship. Bypass the PMV.

No waiting apart, no work restrictions etc.

If indeed your partner has a visa with work rights till December 2017 as long as you start your defacto relationship before December 2016 you'd be able to qualify for defacto visa when you apply in 2017. And as you are planning so far in advance you'd have plenty of time to collect all the evidence you need. In some states you can even register your defacto relationship.

Thanks fro the responses. Wonder if there's any consensus whether those with PMV will have work rights or not (after applying off-shore)?

The original plan was to actually start a de-facto relationship at the end of this year so that we could get the 12 month de-facto requirement for the partner visa. In saying so, right now, I'm not on any funds. I was looking to get a job in the summer to save up and then with the help of living 'on the dole' (next year when I am classified as independent) move out then.

As the responses have said you will not have any issues with your partner's work rights. PMV comes with work rights. Bridging visa in your case will come with work rights in both cases of whether you apply for 820 during her work visa or during PMV.
The only issue is WHILE the PMV is processing. She'll need to apply offshore and either need to be in Japan (or another country) while it processes, or visit on an ETA or other visitor visa which don't have work rights.

When the PMV is granted it will have work rights.

As it is an offshore application, prior to PMV grant there are no work rights and no bridging visa. If the applicant wants to come to Australia while awaiting the PMV grant they will need to have another visa.

We don't mind too much about being separated while the PMV is being processed. As long as we can be together in the end (as corny as that sounds). This can give us more time to save up so if the PMV is accepted, we can move directly in togehter and then get married and apply for the spouse visa from there.

No bridging visas or work rights for offshore applications. The PMV , once granted , comes with full rights.

A tourist visa while the PMV is being processed should be achievable.

Nothing corny about "being together in the end". It's a long journey and a happy ending is all that matters.
