Good Morning

If the visa she has is a tourist visa there is no avenue to stay from that visa.

She will have to apply for a new visa when she arrives.

If the tourist visa has a condition of no further stay then she will not be granted another visa.

If there is not such condition and you are saying that you are in a relationship with her, and you are a permanent resident or citizen, then you can sponsor her if you have been together fro 12 months or you marry.

She can apply for a partner visa.

https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/brin/part

She will be allowed to stay until the visa is processed and if it is granted then she can stay.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
