I am curious as to why people choose the off shore submission (309) rather than the on shore (820) which would allow you to be on a bridge visa therefore not requiring to go in and out as a visitor?

Having had the replies Iíve now had (with the uncertainty of how long a visitor visa I could get, together with the length of processing time for the 309 visa), and doing a bit more research, Iím now beginning to wonder if the best route now is to apply for a visitor visa in the first instance. If there isnít a ďno further stayĒ attached to it then maybe I should enter Australia on that visa and then apply for the onshore partner visa. However, if there is a ďno further stayĒ attached to the visitor visa then Iíll just stick with my offshore partner visa.
I donít want to pay the huge costs for an agent (because Iíve practically done the application and itís very straightforward for us) but I just need someone to advise me of the best route with a leave date from the U.K. of December this year.

Everybodyís circumstances are different and not everybody is in a position to apply onshore.

If new proposed sponsorship rules are introduced it may become problematic to apply onshore for people on temporary visas

For many is simply not an option. Personally we would of preferred to and would of saved a lot of money to do it onshore.

All fair responses. The only thing that stopped us was that we would have had to wait until November, entered on the tourist and lodged as soon as we landed and our MA advised that if we did that the new restrictions on Sponsors may have come in and they didn't know what that looked like.

If it weren't for that, I would have much preferred us to do on shore and have my husband be able to work and be in Aus without the Visitor visa dramas looming over us at the end of 6 months haha

So are you saying that going onshore isn’t a good idea now because of possible sponsor changes?? I’m so confused about the whole thing now...it’s really stressing me out!!

The new sponsorship requirements have not been implemented yet and we donít know if/ when they will be.

However, as Registered Migration Agents we have to alert our clients to this potential complication.

You can plan around government sitting times with certainty.

Nope, as mentioned above.
They are not implemented as yet however when we were deciding to lodge off or onshore back in March, our MA warned us that they could possibly come in to play, so we decided that we did not want to have waited until December to lodge onshore to then have those restrictions imposed on us when we could have been 8 months into the offshore application by lodging in the UK back in March/April. Especially as being apart is not an option for us
