What a big job this whole thing is!
We just lodged our ap by hand in Sydney (Monday Oct 20) and in less than 24 hours i got an email acknowledging the application and a Bridging Visa A grant.
It says the bridging visa comes into effect when my e-visitor ends. Am I correct in thinking this is 3 months after I entered the country?
Also, can I apply for a tax file number before the bridging visa starts? I was hoping that I could start work immediately because well, money!
However i just read that the tfn takes 28 days?
Anybody with experience or advice on these 2 things?
