My wife is being sponsored to take a 1-year contract in Melbourne. My son and I will be going over from the UK with her.
Her contract starts in August next year, but (if possibly) we'd like to arrive a month or so before this to give us a chance to do some sightseeing and settle in.
I'm assuming we'd need to apply for a separate tourist visa in order to do this. What visa would be appropriate? Would we need to do anything like leave and re-enter?
The work visa will be one of the new TSS visas, in case this is relevant. Most of the guidance at the moment still appears to be in relation to the (now defunct) 457 visas.
