Further information for extension of a tourist visa


I have applied for an extension of a eVisitor Tourist visa and I have received the following information:

You are also required to provide:

A travel itinerary covering your travel arrangements and plans within Australia.

Details of your reason for extending your stay in Australia.

Your intentions after departure from Australia (please provide details)

A declaration confirming that you will not receive any income or payment for your intended activities in Australia

I have applied for the extension in order to gather all the documents I'll need for applying for a onshore de facto Partner visa. My question is: should I write the truth that my intention for extending the stay is to be able to apply for the Partner visa? What are the chances I will get a 'No further stay' if the visa is granted?

Thanks for the replies

Depends what country you are from and what kind of an extension you are looking for. I was once told by a registered migration agent, that tourist visas shorter than 6 months come without NFS, and longer ones have more chance on having NFS.

I remember reading posts on this forum by people from Germany and Scandinavia who extended their eVisitor, and got a longer tourist visa without a NFS condition.

And about what reason to put on the application? Sorry, I really don't know. I'd say go for the truth, but in this case - I'm not so sure.

Perhaps it's better to say that you really like Australia and because it's so isolated and far from Europe, you might as well extend your (romantic) holidays here.
And then you're going back home... (and if you change your mind, .....)

This is only my opinion and not an advise, I'm not a migration agent...
