When the BVA comes into effect, the work limitation would be re-set.
Thanks for the reply.When the BVA comes into effect, the work limitation would be re-set.
Yes, normally a new 6 month period would start.Thanks for the reply.
Could you clarify what that means please? Does that mean in March (when BVA comes into effect) I can continue working for another 6 months for this employer?
Did you find a way around this?I just thought I would give an update on my situation as it might answer some questions that are hard to find answers to.
I have been waiting on a decision for my 461 for 19 months. My six month restriction saw me working until December 2017 on my working holiday visa. I requested an extension to continue working until my bridging visa came into effect in January, which was approved.
In June I decided to switch jobs and am now nearing my six month mark (still on my bridging visa). I applied last week for a six month extension through form 1445 in hopes my 461 will be approved by then, and it was denied stating "We are unable to grant permission for you to work beyond the six months on your current visa as you do not hold a substantive working holiday maker visa anymore."
It appears the work condition carries through to bridging visas, but the ability to request an extension does not.
