189: bridging visa for onshore partner when main applicant is offshore

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have received an invite for 189 and want to apply for visa asap.
However, I just left Australia for a longer trip. My partner is still in Australia during this time, though she will visit me abroad during my trip.

Question:
If I apply for 189 while being outside of Australia, will my partner get a bridging visa if she is in Australia during my application? 

I do not really need a bridging visa, since I hold e-visitor visa and can stay in AU up to 3 months at a time. I do travel often anyway, so I can easily just use my current visa until I get 189.
My partner, however, holds a visa that expires soon, so for her getting bridging visa is very important.

Ideally I want to apply while offshore, then come to Australia on my e-visitor visa to stay with my partner. 
Will she get a bridging visa if she is in Australia during application, but I am not in the country?

Thanks.

Perhaps check with a reputable migration agent to ensure you are fully informed?
