I recommend all the RMA's in the Sticky on this forum.

I know some do, some don't and some did but don't now - I am not sure currently of the ones that do. Best way is to contact them and ask.

I know one use to charge just short of $600, thats much cheaper than the full service.

I'm hoping you all can give us some guidance.

I am an Australian Citizen currently residing with my partner (Indian National) in NZ. We have been living together as de facto partners for the past 4.5 years and were able to secure an NZ Residency for my partner on the basis of our relationship.

Due to a change in circumstances, I am wanting to return to Australia and hoping to take my partner as well. We recently got engaged and I am aware of the Prospective Marriage Visa but not sure if that will be suitable for us?

I have seen quite a few posts here where a partner has arrived in Australia on a tourist visa and then has applied for the onshore partner visa. I would like to know if anyone else has done this and if there were any complications?

One thing I'm wary of is that DIBP may question the intent of arriving on a tourist visa and this may negatively impact our partner visa application. We had initially applied for my partner's tourist visa so that we could visit my family back home. His tourist visa is valid until June 2020 and does not have the 8503 "No Further Stay" condition.

Also since we have been in a de facto relationship for the last 4 years, is there a chance we will be granted permanent residency immediately since we satisfy the "long term partner" condition?

Basically I want to be able to return to Australia with my partner, the sooner the better.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Sia
Hi Sia, my husband is a permanent resident and I applied for a spouse visa for my daughter and myself in 2016 Aug (still waiting ) We came on a tourist visa with a 3 month stay condition and then applied for the 820/801 onshore. So yes its possible to apply if you enter on a tourist visa. Hope this helps.
