Question Visa crossroads - any advice

Hey all,

I'm a long time lurker on this forum -thanks for all the great advice.
Been in Oz a while, planning to apply for 820/801. Currently on 457, and am leaving the job that supports my current visa - but am seriously worried that I may not be able to work while the defacto visa is being processed.
Any advice?

Have u had a look at Bridging Visas?

Bridging Visas

Bridging visa A (BVA)
A Bridging visa A (BVA) is a temporary visa. It allows you to stay in Australia after your current substantive visa ceases and while your substantive visa application is being processed. It can be granted if you lodge an application in Australia for a substantive visa while you still hold a substantive visa. A BVA does not allow you to return to Australia if you leave.
See: Bridging visa A - BVA - (subclass 010)


Bridging visa B (BVB)
A Bridging visa B (BVB) is a temporary visa. It allows you to leave and return to Australia while your application for a substantive visa is being processed. Provided you return to Australia within the specified travel period, a BVB will then allow you to stay in Australia while your substantive visa application is being processed. You can hold a substantive visa and a BVB at the same time.
See: Bridging visa B - BVB - (subclass 020)

Bridging visa C (BVC)
A Bridging visa C (BVC) is a temporary visa. It allows you to stay in Australia while your application for a substantive visa is being processed. A BVC can be granted if you lodge an application in Australia for a substantive visa but you do not already hold a substantive visa. A BVC does not allow you to return to Australia if you leave.
See: Bridging visa C - BVC - (subclass 030)

Bridging visa D (BVD)
A Bridging visa D (BVD) is a temporary visa. If your substantive visa has ended, it lets you stay in Australia lawfully for a short time until you are able to make a substantive visa application, make arrangements to leave Australia or are granted a Bridging visa E (BVE). It does not let you work or re-enter Australia if you leave.
See: Bridging visa D (BVD) – (subclass 040 and 041)

Bridging visa E (BVE)
A Bridging visa E (BVE) is a temporary visa. If your substantive visa has ended, it lets you stay in Australia lawfully while you make arrangements to leave, finalise your immigration matter or are waiting for an immigration decision. It does not let you re-enter Australia if you leave.
See: Bridging visa E (BVE) – (subclass 050 and 051)

You should repost this in the visa section so more posters see this. I've seen other situations like this, basically cancelling your substantive visa (eg by leaving your sponsor on a 457) you also cancel your bridging visa and are in really hot water. Also search the forums (search 457 and bridging) as there are plenty of posts on this.

Thank you. Do you know if it's possible to transfer between different types of bridging visa?
