child visa help

Hi all,

My wife has just received her Australian citizenship, she has 2 kids in the Philippines which were originally(5years ago) put down as non migrating family.
Somewhere along the line we had to get the kids medicals done at a Immi approved medical centre in Manila.
The kids have just got there passports and I am going to get tourist visas for them.
Question is can I apply for a visa for them to stay in Australia whilst there in Australia in a tourist visa?

I realise if it has no further stay on there tourist visa that they have to leave Australia.
Friends have got there kids here on tourist visa then applied for visa where they have stayed...

I dont particulary want to apply offshore as the timeline is to great.
I have searched this forum for advise with no luck..

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

What you propose can probably be done.

May I suggest that you consult a registered migration agent with Philippine experience before you commit to a course of action?

That's where a consult will be good for you, to avoid any potential pitfalls.
The family sponsored visa must have the 8503 attached, it's caught many people out
