    Help applying for Onshore Partner Visa

    Hello, I am an Australian citizen. My partner is a UK citizen and wishes to apply for a partner visa to reside permanently in Australia. We have decided that the Onshore Temporary and Permanent Visa (Subclasses 820 and 801) is the most appropriate visa for our purposes. In reading our questions please keep in mind that 1) we believe that we satisfy the de facto relationship requirements and 2) my partner has successfully applied for an eVisitor visa which does not contain a 'No Further Stay' condition. 1. Will my partner have difficulty entering Australia on her visitor visa if she does not have a return flight to the UK? 2. Can my partner apply for an onshore partner visa during the period of her visitor visa? 3. If yes, will a bridging visa (with working rights) be granted on the submission of the application or at the expiration of the visitor visa? 4. Is there a recommended 'cooling off' period to create the impression that my partner has not entered Australia for the purposes of applying for permanent residency? E.g. Wait one month before submitting the application. Thank you very much in advance for any advice!
