Refugee visa

Hi all. I have entered Australia on a travel visa an would like to apply to a refugee visa.
If I am being honest, I feel like I might not get it, and I am concerned about any implications it might have on me if I'd want to come back to Australia as tourist for example, if it doesn't get approved.

Would there be any implications? Or if it got denied and I left on time there would be no further issues?

In more details my problem is:
1. I have a partner here in Australia (long term for two years) but we can't afford the partner visa fees right now.
2. We plan on leaving Australia for at least 6 months next year, which means from bridging visa A I'll have to change to bridging visa b for that period, which I am also worried about as it is a long period and I'm not sure if it'll be granted.
3. If my refugee visa gets denied, would I be able to lodge a partner visa after? I believe that by than we'll have the funds.
4. If I don't get granted bridging visa b, but leave Australia, is my refugee visa still processing? Or does it get revoked?

I would reach out, as soon as possible, to a migration lawyer or agent who focuses on refugee work. They will be able to best advise.

To be honest, refugee visa is very tricky. I know someone who ended up staying in Australia for over 6 years only to be told to leave.then had over $15k Tribunal and fed court debts plus a refusal, this all would make it very difficult to then apply for a partner visa.
I would advise you to save up for partner visa.
Also, immigration agents may also charge you alot of money to handle your case. So if you can't afford a partner visa, how will you pay for the refugee visa costs..
I don't know. Just be careful and don't get sucked into applying by some dodgy immi agent.

On what basis are you applying for protection? Are you intending to travel back to your home country or to some other country?
