Hey there!

I'm a little bit confused of which way I should go. I know that form 1005 is for changing work conditions on a BV, yet I don't know what financial hardship I need to prove to get rid of my 8547.

Then I found a word-document to fill out for changing conditions on the Working Holiday Visa. Here the link: Working Holiday Visa (Subclass 417)
It is for use if you want to get the 8547 taken off while waiting for a perm. visa to be granted. As I applied for the Partner Visa I would fullfill this. Yet I have hardly heard of anyone using this form instead of the 1005...

What would you recommend? I have to send a form away next week. Or can I also hand it in at the immi office in Melbourne?

Thanks!
Cori

Seeking an extension to work longer for an employer when on a 417 is a different situation to wanting a work restriction lifted or permission granted to work when the visa you held did not allow it.
Financial hardship is financial hardship and means you are struggling without the opportunity to be employed and earning, so you essentially need to show that is the case to have any chance of work permission being granted.

You can send the form in or take it in yourself.

Wanderer, thanks for you reply, still leaving me confused.

I work since July 2010 with my employer. In October my BVA kicked in so I continue working for 6 months.

As my 820 application needs a lot longer than thought I now have the problem, that there is still the condition 8547 over my head. I'm just not sure if I need form 1005 or the request form for the 417... :confused:

The 417 is a visa that allows work and whilst a BVA gives you the rights of the visa you held, six months with one employer for a 417, it is not actually a 417 you now hold so any forms/documentation used that are applicable to a 417 could just confuse things.
You are far better to use the standard notification such as a 1005 and just make reference to the 417 restriction re time with one employer and that you and the employer see this employment as being a permanent position for you that would continue once you have a partner visa granted.
It may even help the partner application along.
