Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone would have the same experience, if you have a current Tourist Visa and would want to apply for a 457 subsequent once you entered AU. Is it possible that they give you working rights on your bridging visa?

Thank you for answering!
The bridging visa would typically have the same conditions as your previous visa. There are a number of visas where this does not apply (partner, business skills and permanent employer sponsored and skilled visas amongst others), but 457 is not one of them in your circumstances.

Thank you for clarifying that. In that case, should just apply 457 subsequent offshore, then can still use tourist visa to visit?

Thank you again.
I would apply onshore if you can. It's always handy to have a bridging visa.

In that case, will still hold a tourist visa with 3 months max stay then Bridging visa arrives? is that correct?

Crucial part is without working rights, finances will be a challenge. hehe
BVA will come into effect once tourist visa ceases, if onshore. You can always apply for work rights once the BVA is in effect.
