Visiting after offshore Partner visa application

My partner has been here for almost a year on a WHV Visa, a year as of May, and will likely have to apply for her Partner Visa offshore in July. What is the best Visa for her to apply for after she applies for Partner offshore, so she can come back and visit and stay here, and later get transferred to a bridging Visa?

You can't get "transferred" to a bridging visa.

A bridging visa is generally granted automatically if you lodge a valid visa application onshore, for a visa that can be granted onshore.

If she applies for a partner visa offshore, there will be no bridging visa associated with that application.

She can apply for a tourist visa, but would have to leave after the stay period runs out.

Ah, okay. So it's best and easiest if she remains offshore if she applies offshore.

She can apply for a tourist visa, while the partner visa is being processed. If granted, she can come and visit you, generally for up to 3 months.

Is she is eligible for a second WHV (as AMP suggested), it may be worth looking into.

We tried to go for that option, but her boss gave too many days off in a row (waiting for more fruit to be able to pick or something) and now she likely can't qualify. She has 81 days of work left to complete, and there's 86 days until May 21. The only other job offer she got has a "waitlist", which apparently will likely be longer than those 5 spare days.

Can she simply enter and leave every three months on an Electronic Travel Authority? A previous thread informed me that she would likely be declined for a Visitor 600 visa.

Ah, okay. Perhaps the previous thread was more about applying for a Visitor visa to directly tack onto a WHV.

It can be difficult to get a tourist visa straight after a WHV, as people generally can't stay in Australia for more than 12 months on a combination of WHV/tourist visa.

Okay fair enough. And can she simply enter and leave every three months on an Electronic Travel Authority? Or is it better to apply for an actual Travel visa?

She'll probably have to wait at least 6 months before coming back. She'll have already been in Australia for 12 months. They normally only allow someone to be here for 12 months in an 18 month period. That's what CCMS was telling you.
