Hi!

I am looking for help!

I am on a bridging visa at the moment waiting for my 820 visa to be processed.

I am a UK nurse living in australia but didn't have enough points to apply for my pr yet and am in a relationship so want to stay . I have started a job where they are happy to sponsor me.

I'm considering this as it may be quicker than waiting for partner visa to be processed and I'm worried would have to wait over a year and then it be refused or something

So am thinking maybe this is a safer option?

Does anyone know if its possible to go from a partner bridging visa to being sponsored?

Thanks!

You can generally apply for an employer sponsored visas as the holder of a bridging visa A, B or C.

You’d have to check the individual visa subclasses to make sure you can meet all the requirements.

Why not consult a RMA to review what you have submitted for your Partner Visa?

If it is a genuine relationship and you supplied the evidence, it is most likely to be approved.

Thanks. There is no reason why it should. just keeping hearing horror stories of people who have waited years and then gets refused I will stop reading them haha. What's an RMA? Migration agent? I will ask them thanks!

It is a Registered Migration Agent like the other poster to this thread. I am not sure if CCMS provides such a service (some don't some do).

Many of the horror stories are from simple avoidable mistakes & high risk countries.
