    Hi there guys, My husband is from New Zealand and we have been living in Australia for almost 4 years now. I recently received my 461 New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship Visa. I understand that after 5 years of living in Australia, Kiwi's are able to apply for PR. My question is, when my...

    My husband will be lodging the form offshore in the next 2 weeks. While we are not so much worried about our relationship genuineness since we have been married for 17 yrs but we are concerned about visa refusal based on his lower back pain (sciatica). His work demands a lot of sitting on a...

    Hi guys, I applied for a 461 de facto visa (which would give me unlimited work rights) in February and am currently on a bridging visa. Processing times are up to 24 months and I still have the 6 month restriction. I have read online this can be lifted if you submit form 1445 with a letter...

    I've been reading that bridging visas don't necessarily allow you to work. If I'm renewing a 461 (New Zealander spouse) visa with unlimited work rights, would the bridging visa also automatically have unlimited work rights, or do I have to prove I need the money each time? We made a significant...
