Summary:  We show that the partial crossed product of a commutative $C^*$-algebra by an exact discrete group is nuclear if the full and reduced partial crossed products coincide. This generalises a result by Matsumura for global actions. In general, we prove that a partial action of an exact discrete group on a $C^*$-algebra $A$ has Exel's approximation property if and only if the full and reduced crossed products by the diagonal partial action on $A\otimes_{\mathrm{max}} A^\mathrm{op}$ coincide. We apply our results to show that the weak containment property implies nuclearity in the case of semigroup $C^*$-algebras and $C^*$-algebras of separated graphs.

Keywords: partial action, nuclearity, approximation property, exact group
