Default Partners/student visa

Good morning All,

I am new to this forum so my apologies if I am posting my question not in the right place
My boyfriend just got skilled visa(permanent residence) and will go to Australia mid next year.
I did not apply for partners visa yet as he is not in Australia. Is it a good idea to apply now ?
I was thinking to go with a student visa and after a while to apply for partners visa ( is it possible?). Which options would you advise to choose?

Thanks in advance for your help

As a Sponsor your Partner has to meet the 'Usual Resident' criteria which means living & working in Australia so you can't apply until he makes his move.

If your Student Visa don't have 'No Further Stay' condition then certainly you can apply for Partner Visa onshore assuming you meet all the requirements.

Good Luck!!

girlaussie thanks for you reply!
the last questions hopefully - what do you mean by No Further Stay? All student visas have limited stay (according to the length of studies), no?

No Further Stay - Condition 8503 can be imposed on many visitor and temporary residence visas. If it's imposed then it means you cannot apply for another visa (other than a protection visa or a temporary visa of a specified kind) to extend your stay while you are in Australia.
