Hi guys, we're almost ready to submit our application for the 820 visa.
I'm wondering how long, once submitted before we hear anything and receive a bridging visa.

Many thanks in advance

Yep, a day or three with luck (or more, who knowsss). Seems that time might be where it is assigned to a immigration officer because our BVA was signed by one.

So is it an email kind of response with an attachment?
And that is sufficient to show a prospective employer as having work rights?

Many thanks

Yes, if you apply online you'll get a grant email with a pdf of the BVA. You can show the employer the grant notice but likely they'll just use the grant number to check that is your current visa in VEVO. Keep in mind the BVA doesn't go into effect until your current visa ends.

Thanks Skyblue, thats great news.
Another month of no work and then it will be all systems go for my partner.
She can't wait to start working again.

Many thanks to you all for your help

Just a quick one guys.

My partner first got her holiday visa in August of last year. She has used it for two holidays so far. Each time allowing her 3 months if she chose to stay for that long.
Does that mean she can't work until august this year or can she work when her 3 month stint is up?

Thanks again

It's when the stay period ends so 3 months onshore in her case assuming she doesn't leave at any point during that time and resets the stay period.
