bridging visa/partner visa/whv

hey my partner has a whv for 12 months and we plan on getting married after 6 months of being in australia and then immediately applying for a partner visa but we have noticed some apllications take up to 9 months and if that was the case with ours then her whv would have ended so i am wondering if we needed too could my partner get a bridging visa and be able to stay in australia under the same rights eg, being able to work.
thanks tony

Hi,

As soon as your partner's working holiday visa expires, a Bridging visa will automatically come into effect, and it will have the same conditions as the WHV. So your partner will still be able to work, and also the 6 month limitation re-sets.

So if you want you can apply for the partner visa closer to the expiry date of the WHV, that way you will have more time to gather evidence.

You're welcome. Working holiday visas let you work, however, you cannot work for the same employer for more than 6 months. For example, if you work with McDonalds for 6 months, you must quit after that.
And once your Bridging visa starts (once the WHV expires), you will be able to work for a employer that you had previously already worked 6 months for, if you want to.
(Sorry for using McDonals as an example).
