    Obtaining a new tourist visa

    Are you sure your visa does not have any stay restriction conditions attached to it, specifically condition 8558?

    Seafarers exemption Citizenship

    The ship's crew special residence requirement still requires that you spend the equivalent of 120 days per year in Australia over the 4 year period (amongst other requirements).
  3. I would not be trying to sort this out on a forum. I suggest that your friend urgently consults an RMA who is expert in this complex field with the full facts.

    Left Australia without brigding visa B

    Return Resident Visa

    Language exame requirement

    Actually, there is a Nursing and Midwifery Board in Australia, which regulates the profession. AHPRA is the agency that supports all the National Boards to implement the single National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (National Scheme) for registered health practitioners.

    Subclass 820 Partner visa

    As above, your bridging visa will be granted immediately after you make a valid application for a partner visa, but will not come into effect until the WHV expires.

    Waiting period of Aust.Spouse visa

    He has lifted it (selectively) from the 309 eligibility page of the Home Affairs website. All of it is "necessary, but not sufficient".

    Applied for 2nd year working holiday visa

    Waiting period of Aust.Spouse visa

    As mentioned above, this is usually not a problem.

    Waiting period of Aust.Spouse visa

    Just being married (in addition to the criteria you quote above) does not mean she is automatically eligible for a partner visa. Her application needs to demonstrate, by providing evidence: "To be a married applicant: - you and your spouse must both be committed to a shared life together to the exclusion of all others - your relationship with your spouse must be genuine and continuing - you must live with your spouse or do not live apart on a permanent basis - your marriage must be valid under Australian law" I reiterate my advice to get some professional advice ...
