Oh, didn't know this. I assume the DIBP system must somehow recognise that the visa holder leaves the country and then when they return the BVA kicks in?

If we were to arrive there with no forward ticket for her "should" be ok?
If we decided to then change from tourist to spouse visa it would be fill in the paperwork for the temp/perm visa and head to Immigration, there they would view the documents and lodge, at that point they would change her tourist visa to a bridging type whilst she waited for approval of the temp/perm visa?
How long would be normal for someone to be on bridging visa? I know on this visa she cannot work or have medicare. Once granted temp part of visa am I correct in saying that she could then work have medicare whilst she waited for the perm part? I think this is what you said above but Im just trying to be sure..

Again thanks again, you and the guys info has been very helpful
I recommend that your wife has a return or onward ticket regardless. You may be able to cancel it and get a refund if your plans change after arrival in Australia. I would definitely not recommend that she arrives in Australia on a one way ticket.

If she were to lodge an application in Australia you would not head for Immigration. You lodge by mail, courier or online. They will only check that a valid application has been lodged and they will grant a Bridging Visa A. Then you will hear nothing for a long time. It's all quite impersonal and not a matter of handing over the paperwork and having someone go through it.

Your wife can apply for Medicare once the application has been acknowledged.

The Bridging Visa A associated with an onshore partner visa usually has full work rights nowadays.

The Bridging Visa A will not come into effect until the visa your wife is holding when she applied for the partner visa expires.

In the case of a multiple entry tourist visa with 3 months stays, the Bridging Visa would come into effect when the 3 month period is up and she has not left Australia.The Tourist Visa would then be superseded by the Bridging Visa.

If you're unsure about any of this, do yourself a favour and seek professional advice. Refusals are expensive and very stressful.

Hi leopard blue, I think this is true yes, if you have lodged onshore - can someone else confirm this?

Agin thanks to all for your replies..

Just to clarify things...

My wife has been granted ( same as last time ) a 12 month multi entry visa, and yes she can only stay maximum of 90 days per entry.

What I know need to find out is IF and I say IF, we decided to change her visa status from Tourist to temp/perm, I am assuming the following, Hypothetically if we were in OZ say 60 days, we then got all the required documents done and presented these to Immigration she would then receive a BV that would take effect after the first 90 days of her tourist visa, she would also at that stage be able to work and therefore have access to Medicare? This of course is purely hypothetical as we cannot think this way on a tourist visa!!!

Yes that is correct. She would be put a BVA and if she wants to go overseas at any stage she has to apply for a BVB.

Once she gets the BVA it comes with full work rights and she will be able to work - though from what I read people have found it hard to get work on BVA's.

She can apply for Medicare as soon as she gets the acknowledgement letter from DIBP.
