Eta visa

i am asking this question for a friend of mine.
a friend of mine will be applying for a ETA visa as the spouse de facto visa was rejected as her and her partner did not have enough evidence. When she was there she was on a 12 months tourist visa with a no further stay so had to return back to the UK and left her partner in Australia.
if she applies for this ETA visa and stays in Australia for 3 months can they apply for a spouse defacto visa and apply for a bridging visa whilst still in Australia

You do not usually apply for a bridging visa for they are granted to as the name implies bridge from when one visa expires until a decision is made on a new visa applied for.
As to her getting a partner visa after building up additional time using an ETA, that is possible if there has not been a significant break from the time she was here earlier.

There are other potential complications, not to mention whether the " not enough evidence " will have an impact and you can have a look at the sticky thread on Offshore/Onshore visas etc.
