Evisitor visa to onshore partner visa

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to arrive in Australia on a 3 month evisitor visa & then apply for an onshore partner visa before the evisitor visa expires? The person in question is a UK citizen, married to an Australian permanent resident. Obviously ideally the partner visa would have been applied for prior to leaving the UK, but as a close family member in Australia is due to have a baby shortly, the person in question is keen to be in Australia sooner rather than later. Is there a chance the evisitor visa could have a "no further stay" condition imposed on it?

Yes it is possible. Many do it this way.

 

Its not usual for the visitor visa they are going to travel on having a NFS condition attached that will prevent them applying once onshore. They can apply for the tourist visa today and get an answer on it by tomorrow I'd think so nothing to stop them applying for it and seeing what comes back is there.

 

I'd suggest they don't travel with all their supporting evidence in their baggage as that might raise eyebrows should they have their bags checked upon entering Australia.
