Just a note on the No Further Stay condition (8503) and the similar condition (8534) for student visas.

It is not impossible to get this condition waived, but it is difficult. The three criteria that must exist in order to make a successful 8503 waiver request are:

* There must be a significant change in the applicant's situation
* The change must have happened after the current visa was granted
* The change must be beyond the control of the applicant

The third criteria is the hardest to meet usually - for instance, pregnancy does not count as being "beyond the control", however unexpected complications in a pregnancy that make it unsafe for the applicant to return home could count.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

But when the original visa expires, the applicant needs to leave Australia as there is no bridging visas for offshore applicants.

I suggest you have a good look at the Partner Migration booklet, you can download it from the following website: Partner Migration Booklet

You have to have a strong application with good evidence, better too much than not enough.

Good luck and all the best.
hi bma,

Hi Mark,

In order to sponsor my partner "Offshore" do I need to be in Australia?
Can I not sponsor him (with the exception of first entry) while we are both living in Kuwait?
On the immigration website the creiteria to sponsor your partner offshore I have to be PR so am I?
Can you clarify this please.
Thanks
Nosh.

The Partner Migration Booklet clearly states that a sponsor who is an Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, is required to be usually resident in Australia.

In general, the applicant's partner needs to live in Australia, but eligibility usually depends on the country where the applicant applies; some are more strict than the others. Some actually want to see paperwork that a sponsor resides in Australia, and for some countries/officers it's enough to present sponsor's one-way ticket to Australia as proof the sponsor will be living in Australia.

You need to read Partner Migration Booklet , it explains all about the necessary evidence (4 categories!!), what else to attach to the application etc.

Hi Pikasu,
I'm sorry, but I don't know the answer to that question. I once read on the forum that you can enter before it expires and then stay three more months, but I'd certainly double check that.
What if you write a short message to the agent Mark Northam who's on the forum, he often helps with the advices. And considering you just have a quick question, you might get a quick reply. I just saw he replied to this thread already, here's his profile just in case: http://www.australiaforum.com/members/marknortham.html

Keep us posted, please. Good luck!
