Visiting Australia while 309 Visa is in process

Hello members,

Im a newbie here. So please bear with me if I'm asking the obvious.

My wife applied for a spouse visa, 309, outside Australia. She is a French Citizen

We are both overseas at the moment and want to visit Australia in the next few months.

Is she allowed to visit as tourist while there is a spouse visa application is in progress? If yes, do the standard visit visa conditions apply or different conditions apply? We are more concerned about how long she can stay in the country with a tourist visa.
Thanks

It’s a common scenario. A single entry 3 month visa or a multiple entry visa with 3 months stays is what most people seem to get.

Be sure to let immigration know you are coming for a visit well in advance. It is required, but basically a courtesy as well. We are waiting for my 309-100 while working overseas, and I do have to tell them that I am going home for 'home leave'/vacation from my job (which this time, will be in Aus).

Hi, I have a pending PMV 300 Visa is process and am visiting next month. I had previously visited Australia on a tourist visa which I applied for on-line and was granted immediately. This is my second trip and it took a few days for them to process it but i got the grant with 72 hours. I had read that a couple whose partner was applying from Ukraine, it took them 45+ days for their tourist visa to be granted while they also had a pending partner visa. The wait time for my most recent tourist visa was 19-27ish days so don't delay. Once I got my tourist visa grant, I uploaded it, along with my flight itinerary to my Immi application. Mine is good for a year, multiple entries up to 3 months each stay and i can study for 3 months too which i was surprised by.

Hope this helps, happy travels!

Or keep it simple if it's just a one off short visit, get an ETA.

SBB is correct-however, you should still alert them....it is, per my agent, standard procedure (I travel on 3 month tourist visa waiver and still send a heads up....always show that you are doing the right thing when you are still waiting).
