Subclass 309 or 820

Hi folks ,
I got a problem I am together with my gf for 9 month now but I had to leave the country due my visa was running out now my dilemma !
Is it better to apply for a tourist visa and then apply for a de facto visa inside of Australia and do I get a bridging visa until my de facto visa granted?
when I am applying outside of australia (309) can I still go on a tourist visa and does that affect the de facto visa? How long do I have to leave the country after the tourist visa ?

Please help I lost the view through all the visa requirements
Thanks sa

Hi there,

Before you make a solid decision, you should read this sticky if you haven't already:

I think it highlights some of the risks and pitfalls of applying onshore via a tourist visa. If the tourist doesn't have a NFS condition, there is little hassle. But if it does, then you would have to go out of Australia again and lodge overseas anyway.

The 12 months if only an issue if you want to apply for a de facto visa. But, if you are thinking of marriage, you could apply for a PMV (fiance visa) in your country, or get married now and apply for a spouse visa as a married couple. If you apply for a spouse visa overseas you can still visit Australia, but you have to leave before the visa is granted.
