Difficult Visa situation 😞

Hello all I hope someone can take the time to read this and help me out

I am hoping someone can give me advise as I am very stressed out about my current situation.

I am on a visitor visa 600 which was a 12 months single entry it expires in August this year. When I came to Australia I was “supported” by a friend on my application as my partner wasn’t able to “invite and support” me due to not being a permanent resident yet. She became a permanent resident at the start of March this year which then I updated my address and details to her place as we were living together.

I’m unable to go back to my home country, Indonesia due to Covid 19. I’m trying to find options for what I’m going to do to stay in Australia.

If I apply for a NEW tourist visa onshore - will this be ok with my partner “supporting” me?

Does applying for a new visa effect future visas or will I be not approved since I’ve already been here for 12 consecutive months? Is there a waiver for this due to Covid?

I can not apply for a partner visa yet as
- we haven’t been together for 12 months
- my partner has only been a permanent resident for 2 months

We can apply for partner visa next year but I’m just struggling for options on how to keep me in Australia until then........

ANY ADVICE / GUIDANCE IS MUCHLY APPRECIATED

It would be best for you to consult with a Registered Migration Agent, who can advise you of the best course of action, to try and stay for another 12 months.
An Indonesian friend of my daughter is flying home from Perth with Garuda in mid July for less than $400, so getting home is not a problem.

It is actually a problem for us to be split up in this situation

That is something that immigration say is not an exceptional or valid reason, as it applies to many offshore partner applicants.

Register your relationship if you are in a state that supports it. Then apply for partner visa if that is within your parameters of interacting.

True. However, Covid 19 itself should come under an exceptional circumstance.

It is, and they are reducing the number of visas being issued for that very reason.

Even more partners are being kept apart longer, while the virus is around.

Social distancing at its extreme..

I was seeking some positive guidance and advice.. I’m already feeling hopeless as it is which is why I’m hoping there’s a pathway. I don’t need to be told that we pretty much just need to part ways in an awful situation where my partner would have (literally) nothing if he returned to his home country.

I mean, if there’s a will there’s a way.

As I mentioned before, you need to consult with a Registered Migration Agent who MAY be able to assist. Asking the same question from a group of well meaning "amateurs" until you get a response that is to your liking is pointless. The advice you receive from the senior members of this group comes from our own personal experience, and whilst unpalatable it is the truth.
In my own case, I spent nearly 18 months seperated from my wife, we also had to endure the problems associated with a rejection due to health concerns.
There is never an "easy" way when it comes to dealing with immigration, if there was we all would have taken it!
