Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
She can come over as a visitor
When she is here you can apply for what ever visa you like.
But you should consult with a migration agent about the best avenues open to you.
If they suspect she is not coming over as a visitor they may not let her in so you have to be careful there.
But what you are considering is possible but more expensive than applying for the partner visa while she is overseas.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
If you apply while she is outside australia she can come visit while waiting for the visa but has to be overseas when her visa is approved.
If you wish to apply in australia then she has to arrive and then you apply. She can then stay until they make a decision.
