Unhappy Urgent: Subclass 600 extension denied, re-entry limitations?

Hi everyone, first time poster!

I'm a Canadian, married to an Australian (dual citizen) and we have a 2 year old son that has dual citizenship. We came back to Aus last year for a visit (I got a tourist visa 600 for 12 months.)

Now something has come up and my husband is required to stay in the country and my visa is about to expire. I was denied an extension and looks like I will have to return to Canada with our son, alone.

We are eventually planning on applying for the PR partner visa but this is all too sudden to miraculously come up with 7k. So, my question is this:

Are there any limits on how often you can be granted a tourist visa 600? And how long do I have to be out of Aus for before applying again? Ideally as soon as possible would be best but we'll do what we have to.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated! We're losing hella sleep over here!

Notwithstanding that the DIBP uses such language, visas cannot be 'extended'. It is necessary to apply for another visa.

There is no limit to the number of times subclass 600 visas can be granted, but policy is that visitors should not stay in Australia for longer the 12 months in any 18 month period. Sooner or later, subsequent visitor visa grants will have condition 8503 imposed to stop further onshore applications, or will simply be refused.

If you have been refused a visa onshore and you do not hold a substantive visa Section 48 will stop you from applying for almost all visas onshore.

If you hold a substantive visa you can apply onshore for a subclass 600 visa or a partner visa and automatically be granted a bridging visa that would have Medicare rights, and unrestricted work rights once your substantive visa expires.
All the best with whatever you decide to do.

It would be best to find the 7k and apply the 820 partner visa BEFORE your current visa expires.

That assumes your current Visitor Visa does not have the 8503 condition.
