Balinese to Australia Visa

Hey, I have been with my boyfriend for 3 years in August and we are wanting to bring him to Australia to live and work not on a student visa and not with a marriage visa.
We were hoping for some kind of working visa which can lead to a permanent residence visa or a defacto visa looks perfect for us. Except that I'm 18 (he's 23) and we haven't lived together officially. He has stayed at my house when we sponsored him to come for a 3 month holiday last year and I stay at his house when I go to Bali but nothing with both our names.
What do you think the likelihood of getting a defacto visa is and also how would we get him a working visa? Only interested in something that leads to permanent visas.
Please help, I can't find any information relating personally to my case and its making me go crazy.
Thank you

What you're describing is dating rather than a defacto relationship. It's pretty impossible to get a defacto visa without living together at all.

Is there any reason he can't come to Australia on a Working Holiday Visa? He's young enough for that. You could live together for a year on that visa and collect all the evidence you need for a defacto visa. Working holiday visas are easy to get.

There are many types of work (skilled) visas, but they're only available to folks with certain types of qualifications, experience, etc. You'd have to check DIAC's visa wizard to see if he'd qualify for any of those. Some lead straight to PR, others don't (457 in particular does not, so don't bother looking at those).

Does he have to be sponsored for that? And do you know how much it costs? That would make it easier. If he works here for a year does he have to have a set job before he comes and if someone says they will employ him for the year, can he change jobs during his stay?

Unfortunately, I stand corrected - I checked, and Bali apparently is not part of the Working Holiday Visa program. So it doesn't look like he'd qualify for that. Your best bet now is to go through the visa wizard I linked you to. Some of the skilled visas required being sponsored by a company and some don't. The wizard will walk you through which you'd qualify for.

Oh okay, I will have a look at the visa wizard but I think I've looked at that before and it hasn't been helpful. Do you think it makes a difference that I'm only 18?
Also, would it be easier of we got married do you think? We want to one day get married anyway so do you think that will be better or just as hard?
Does the fact that he's in Indonesia make it harder to get a visa in any way? Like are there countries which Australia are more 'friendly' with and more 'unfriendly' with?

If you plan to get married anyway, a prospective marriage visa would be by far your best option. It requires less evidence than the defacto or the spouse visa. The primary criteria is that you must have met in person, you must establish that your relationship is genuine, etc. but you do NOT need to have ever lived together. But once your visa is granted, you must marry within nine months. There's a thread i wrote called "Which Partner Visa Should I Apply For?" at the top of the forum in the stickied threads. Take a look at it and you can read all about it.

Being from Indonesia won't keep him from getting a visa, but as a high-risk country it COULD delay your security check a little, making it take longer.

Being 18 won't hurt you in the partner visa category. In the skilled category, younger is generally better, actually, though your partner may struggle to have enough experience in his profession at a younger age. I don't know enough about skilled visas to advise you beyond that I'm afraid.

With the prospective marriage visa how does that work exactly?
When he comes here after we get married and after the 9 months is over, does he have to go back to Bali and apply for a marriage visa and then wait for that anyway?
And after we get a marriage visa is it a 2 year wait to get a temporary visa and then another 2 year wait for a permanent residence visa?
Sorry for so many questions!

If you read that thread I told you about it, I think most of your questions are answered there. But anyway... this is the process:

1) He applies for the PMV.
2) It's granted.
3) He MUST enter Australia before you marry.
4) You marry within nine months of the date of your grant, anywhere you want.
5) Once you marry, you apply for the 820 (onshore partner visa). You pay much less for this, the processing time is generally MUCH faster, and there's not as much evidence required as there is for people who apply straight to the 820. You'll provide evidence you've married, combined finances, etc.
6) While you wait for this to process, if it takes so long the PMV runs out, he'll be on a bridging visa. He is allowed to work full time on this. He is also eligible for medicare the moment he applies for the 820.
7) The 820 is granted.
8) He is eligible to apply for permanent residency two years from the date of your APPLICATION for the 820. This also is not very evidence-heavy.
