If there's an onshore visa that you are eligible to apply for, such as the ENS 856 or RSMS 857, yep that'll make you onshore.

 

But if you're looking at the 175/176 or 885/886 options, likely you'll be ineligible for the onshore 885/886 which has study in Oz as a requirement and so in applying for 175/176 that puts you back to offshore [but you can still apply from within Australia].

If you are applying for p/r under the ENS you can be either - you decide when you tick the relevant box on the application form.

 

Onshore = bridging visa entitlement, you must have a qualifying visa, and you can be onshore at time of visa grant.

 

Offshore = must be offshore at time of visa grant. Usually only used when the visa applicant in Australia doesn't have a qualifying visa. Or if you are offshore when the application is lodged. Or - importantly - if you have already lodged a s/c 175 or 176 visa application and want to go for the fee free ENS option.

 

Best regards.
