Question A path to Australia during Corona?

Hi all, first-time poster here.

My partner (Japanese) and I (Aussie) have been engaged for two years, but have been living apart for a year now since I returned to Australia last year to finish my degree. Our plan was for them to come on a 600/417, get married and then apply onshore for the 820/801 partner visa. We do have a registered relationship in the ACT, so we meet the de-facto requirements already. Corona's of course thrown a stake in the works, and we just want to be together again.

Has anybody had experience being granted a 417/462/600 (with no 'No further stay' rule attached) in conjunction with a travel exemption during the past few months? I believe I have seen posts on the FB group 'Partner Visa Australia' that have confirmed some have, but that may just me being hopeful.

One last question: they have commitments in Japan until next March so travel wouldn't be until then, is the entry requirement on a 417/600 within one year usually? We want to get the application done asap so things are set in stone, but not sure whether to wait until later in the year to apply.

Thanks in advance for all your help, it's very much appreciated.

Your partner can apply for a visitor visa and a travel exemption on the basis of being your de facto partner. These are being prioritised on the basis of travel dates so it’s pretty unlikely you will get any traction at this early stage.
