Question Partner migration visa or student visa first?

Looking at the time frames offshore partner migration visa takes 15 to 20 months. Student visa takes just 4 months. Could anyone help me sort out my dilemma? As all of you I too want to be with my wife (partner, married to me) at the earliest. Is it a viable option to have her come on a student visa and then apply for partner visa? Thanks much!

Viable, but fraught.
May I suggest that you consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for an assessment of your case and advice about strategy?

At the moment a partner visa might be faster than a student visa. 75% were done in 15 months or less last month. Only 15% took between 15-20 months. But more Partner visas were granted than Student visas.

Very few student visas can be issued until the borders open again. This statement also applies to those student visas that are issued "While travel restrictions remain in place, you cannot travel to Australia."

It would probably be worth doing what wrussell (Registered Migration Agent) has suggested.

Currently most student visa holders are unable to travel to Australia. Applying for a student visa while being in a relationship with an Australian may also raise Genuine Temporary Entrant concerns.
