Hi Jayant -

Sounds like you have the wrong agent if they're not informing you properly regarding these issues!

The application for the right to work involves demonstrating a compelling need to work due to either financial hardship, or an "approved appointment" to work such as an approved nomination for a 457 visa. You will want to make sure your application for work rights is complete, detailed, and effectively demonstrates through evidence your financial hardship should you not be allowed to work. Unfortunately no way I know of to expedite the appliccation.

If your agent is preparing this for you, I would definitely ask to review a copy of the application before it is lodged, and don't be shy about asking questions about how it was prepared and what evidence is being included. After all, it's your life and your career!

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

That sounds like a good start - they will also be interested in any savings, liquid assets, etc you may have. Other info that can be helpful: details on any other family in Australia and why they cannot support you financially, details of any payments from your home country (especially ones that occur regularly - monthly, etc), how you have supported yourself up to now, and what will happen to you if you are not able to work.

Did you agent make the application for you? If so, I would make an urgent request for a complete copy of the application and go over it yourself to determine if they have included all the information you believe should be included.

Overall, it's better to update an application before it's been decided, then to try and do so after it's been decided. I would get a copy of the application and all supporting documents as soon as possible so you can decide if it fully describes your situation to your satisfaction.

Best,

Happy to help, Jayant. I do not mean to criticise your agent in any way - my point is that as the applicant, you should always know exactly what's being submitted on your behalf, and (in my opinion) should always be provided with a copy of every form and submission made to DIAC on your behalf.

Best,
