I hope you can reply to this. My partner and I are about to apply and pay for the 820/801 Visa this week. Which we understand is a lengthy process. Our situation is that his working holiday visa runs out April 15th. And as we are only just sending the application where do we stand with what happens if his visa runs out before the bridging visa is issued. And is the bridging visa supplied before we are asked to upload our documents ? His work was planning to sponsor him but that fell through last minute. Which is why is has all been left so late. We are just wondering what happens when his visa runs out, as all this will all still be processing/up in the air.
You fill out the application and then you hit submit and pay. Once you pay, the application has been submitted and only then can you access the section to upload supporting documents.
The BVA is issued immediately after applying but does not go into effect until the current visa expires.
Sometimes it can take a few days for the BVA to be issued if the partner visa takes a few days to process payment.
