Travel exemption to visit Australia

Hi,

Just a few quick questions about the current travel exemption situation in Australia:

1. On the government website it says a de facto partner is considered an immediate family member to an Australian citizen, and therefore should be in an exempt category. Is a longlasting, but not legally registered, relationship considered de facto here, or it referring to legally registered relationships?
2. Are you meant to apply for a visa first, and then a travel exemption, or apply for a travel exemption, and then (once it has been approved) a visa?
3. Typically (before COVID) visitor visas were given with a window of 1 year from the time of being granted until the time you could arrive into the country. Are they still being granted with this time window, or is it much shorter now?

Thanks

1. The standard definition of de facto as per all other migration legislation
2. Visa then exemption, but visa won’t be granted unless exemption approved
3. Depends which type of visitor visa
