BVAs associated with partner visa applications made from a substantive visa have nil conditions. If the OP wants to travel they need to apply for a BVB.It will depend on what kind of visa you currently holding. Normally your main visa still effected then your bridging visa. I suggest you carefully consult an agent and know all the restrictions before you applying for any other visa. Otherwise you may not have any work or travel rights.
Yes, since there is a maximum of 12 months within an 18 month period allowed, I am surprised this has slipped through.I'm surprised they've allowed you to continually renew your visitor visa since 2016 so you may start to face difficulties with that since a visitor visa isn't intended for someone to "live" in Australia. But if you re-enter the country and then submit your partner visa application, you would move onto the bridging visa when the stay period ends.
If you refer to your visitor visa, it should say how long you are entitled to remain (e.g. 3 months). The visitor visa will expire the moment you remain beyond that stay period and then the bridging visa comes into effect.
That's the purpose of the bridging visa, to allow the person to remain onshore while awaiting a decision on their application.Yes, since there is a maximum of 12 months within an 18 month period allowed, I am surprised this has slipped through.
I have a question Maggie May regarding the bridging visa. The Partner Visa is not decided upon (and may take 12 months or more) yet the applicant can stay until there is a decision handed down on a Bridging Visa?
I've been living there since oct 2016
Oops, sorry. Got these two posts mixed up. When I skimmed through, I thought it was one person talking! I'll edit the other post.Yes, since there is a maximum of 12 months within an 18 month period allowed, I am surprised this has slipped through.
I wasn't implying you have violated any rules, just I'm surprised they would allow you to have so many subsequent visitor visas since they are usually quite firm on the "a visitor visa is not intended to allow you to live in Australia".I went originally on a 3 month tourist visa, then was granted an extended stay visa for an additional 9 months. Then I reapplies for another tourist visa for 3 months. Each time I am leaving the country and applying outside of Australia. Not violating anything to my knowledge.
Hi!Somewhat depends on circumstance but generally when your current visa expires and you move onto the bridging visa associated with the partner visa.
BVA would come into effect on 25 April. Just be aware that if the new sponsorship requirements are implemented by then, you may not be able to lodge your sc. 820 visa application before your tourist visa stay period runs out.Hi!
My tourist visa expired in (latest entry date) Oct 2019, but my stay period will end in 25 April (after 3 months). If I submit 820 application mid April, will my BVA started in April or October?
Would you mind explaining further what is the new sponsorship requirement?BVA would come into effect on 25 April. Just be aware that if the new sponsorship requirements are implemented by then, you may not be able to lodge your sc. 820 visa application before your tourist visa stay period runs out.
This is not true when applying for a Partner Visa or a 189 Skilled Visa. A BVA for an 820/801 Visa application has NIL conditions, meaning the person has full work and study rights while on a BVA.As far as I know whether you have working right while on bridging visa is all depends on the type and criteria of the visa that you was holding before your bridging visa granted.
Lets say you was holding visitor visa which didn't allow you to work in Australia , then you 're NOT allow to work even you have got the Bridging visa... It was something I was told when I got my bridging visa few years ago. I don't know if the rule has changes so you better ask the immigration.
