Unhappy HELP with Lodging Partner Visa Onshore!

Hi everyone,
I was hoping for some help or advice in lodging the Australian Partner visa 820 onshore.
You see I'm Australian and my partner is British. After we're married (we're engaged at the moment) we wish to apply for the Australian Partner visa.
Initially we wanted to lodge it offshore (in the UK) but now I have a job in Australia to start soon after we're married so I will need to fly home for this. My fiance doesn't want to wait for his visa by himself in the UK so we got him a 6 month tourist visa and we're booked to fly home together so he will wait for his visa in Australia. We are aware that he will need to exit Australia when the visa is to be approved.
However, we are now told that it's too risky to do this so we've decided to lodge the Partner visa onshore. Of course this changes everything as we were preparing to lodge offshore! So now I'm asking anyone who's had experience what the procedure is........things like - can my fiance still fly into Australia on his 6 month tourist visa that we already have approved? does he fly in like he's going for a holiday then lodge the Partner visa and wait? or does he need a different visa altogether? oh and while he waits for his visa to be approved can he fly elsewhere for holidays and then come back into Australia again and wait?
Sorry if this is too confusing... but any and all info on 'how to lodge the Partner visa 820 onshore' will be very much appreciated!
Thank you in advance,
anj3lz

I do not know who has told you your first plan is too risky or why but what you are proposing re an onshore application is also risky for Immi like to see visas used for their intent and even Blind Freddy will be able to see that Mrs. & Mr. on same flight with one way tickets are considering more than a holiday and Immi people do have a way of questioning when it comes to that and just hate lies.
On the other hand it does seem acceptable that people already with a partner visa application in will make a visit whilst processing occurs and take another trip to Asia/NZ to allow the partner visa to be granted.
Trips out and back will be OK if the tourist visa is a multiple entry one.
Have you been together in a relationship for the 12 months requirement for if so, you can submit the partner visa application prior to getting married or otherwise have it ready to submit straight after marriage and before flying out.
The alternative is to submit a PMV and then advise of your marriage and they will start considering it as a partner visa.

Thank you so much for replying my thread Wanderer!
However, I was asking more about the procedure for lodging the Partner visa Onshore in Australia? Did you know if a specific visa is needed to come into Australia to lodge the Partner visa or can you just come in on a tourist visa? Ok any other info would be very helpful!
Thanks again!

Well there is no special visa for coming to Australia to lodge a partner visa and I also should have mentioned the other reason for arrival on a tourist visa being risky and that is if the tourist visa has a No Further Stay condition on it which could be possible.
That will mean he will not be able to apply for any visa while here.
If a person makes a visit using an ETA they may not have the NFS condition.

Hi Wanderer,
Thank you for getting back to me so soon, much appreciated!
Ok so just so I'm clear - my fiance has a 6 month tourist visa (subclass 676) and we read up on it and it doesnt seem to have the NFS condition (8503) it only has the 'no work' and 'no study for more than 3 months' conditions...
Does that mean we're ok to come in on that visa and then apply for the partner visa?
Ok thanks again!

In that case it would seem that if he had entered, then applying for the partner visa is possible.
