Newbie confusion please help

Apologies if this has been asked and answered before. I have been wading my way through previous posts and can't seem to find it.
Here's the situation...... My fiancee ( an Aussie) and I met online and we recently got engaged. He is in Brissy and I am in New Zealand. I am here on a permanent residence permit and have 2 years to go before getting citizenship. We have looked at him coming over here but job prospects are not great for him so we are now looking at me jumping the ditch so we can marry and be together as the weekend a month either here or there is just getting too much. Any ideas on what the best visa would be to apply for?

Hi,

First of all, what nationality are you? If you are a NZ permanent resident, then you should be able to go freely to Australia, since the two countries have a no visa arrangement.

If, however, you want to be an Australian resident, you can apply onshore once in Australia for a partner visa.

Check the DIAC site for details:

Thumbs up

Thanks for the reply. I am a South African and as I am still on a South African passport until I get my NZ citizenship I still need a visa to travel to Australia. Up until I met my now fiancee I had intended to make NZ my home however this has all changed. I'll check out the link thanks again for providing some clarity.

OK, well I don't think tourist visas to Australia for South Africans have a no further stay condition on them. If it did, you wouldn't be able to lodge an onshore application and you would have to go offshore again to lodge.
