Hi all,
This is my first post here, and I would really value your help with this.

My question is as in the title:
If my spouse applies for 309 offshore, can she then come to Australia and acquire a Bridging Visa A during processing?
Or, would it be better if we acquired a temporary visa first (not sure which would be the most appropriate), came to Australia, applied for a 820 and get granted a BVA (automatically) at that stage?

The reason that I ask is that, according to the average processing times, the 820 seems to take 6 months or so longer than the 309, and my spouse would like the right to work sooner rather than later.

Thanks in advance.

(If I've shown any misunderstanding with regards to anything other than my main question, please feel free to educate me. :) )

You won't get a bridging visa when applying for the 309 offshore.

It is a lottery and a bit depends on the applicants country.

But there certainly is no bridging visa for offshore applicants for work rights.

Getting onshore and being able to apply for a Partner Visa can also be very tricky from some countries.

In fact not possible at times - but we have no information to inform you.
