Husband applying for partner visa onshore (820/801) while on tourist visa 600

Hi there,

I'm just after some clarification as I've read different things about a partner coming to Australia on a tourist 600 visa to apply for the onshore partner visa -820/801.

I'm Australian and married to a Chinese man. My husband is on the tourist 600 visa with 8101 and 8201 conditions with a 3 month(s) stay and multiple entries allowed, expiring in August 2021.

We got married in Australia in August 2017 and I have been living (with him) and working on and off (returned to Australia during my holidays) in China since then. He has joined me in Australia for some of that time to holiday too.

This time I have returned to Australia and we have agreed that our future lies here and now would like him to join me full time and to apply for the PR visa. We'd like to apply onshore so we can start building our life here.
Some questions I have:

-Do his 8101 - no work and 8201 - maximum 3 months study conditions mean that it would be difficult for him to apply onshore while on this tourist visa 600?
-Is it a bad thing for him to come to Australia this time when it would clearly not be as a tourist but for the purpose to apply for the PR visa?
-I'm not sure if he should apply for a different temporary visa to enter Australia? Or:
-Whether we should just consider doing an offshore PR visa application? (which would delay our future plans in Australia).

Thanks for any advice that people may be able to give.

No.

Upon lodging a valid application for an onshore partner visa, he would automatically be granted a bridging visa A with no conditions, would be eligible to apply for Medicare and would have work rights after 3 months.

It might be a good idea to consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for advice about strategy.

Hi,
I applied for my wifes 801 visa while she was in Australia on a tourist visa and she was granted a bridging visa A as soon as her tourist visa expired.
People say you cant apply for partner visa while in Australia on a tourist visa but i did with no problems at all.
Just make sure you have enough evidence that you have been in a relationship for atleast 12 months without being apart for more than 6 weeks(not 100% sure about 6week timeframe)
good luck...
