There is no bridging visa and you must be outside Australia for the grant of your 309 visa.Hi, I am America citizen I have applied for 309 overseas, now I am in Australia on ETA (Tourist visa which doesnt allow me to do business or work) this ETA expires on 10 Sep2018. I want to continue staying and also get a work visa is there a bridging visa for my situation? What are my options please help.
You can get a bridging visa only if you lodge a valid application for another visa in Australia. You could for example apply for a skilled visa or an onshore partner visa, if you have money to spare.
