apply for work rights affect partner visa application?

Hi everyone! My partner and I have have just lodged our application for partner visa (onshore) in person last week and granted a bridging visa C at the spot. So this bridging visa C comes with the 'no work right' condition. We are now wondering if I (yes I'm the applicant) applied for permission to work on this bridging visa, will the 'financial hardship' has any affect on our partner visa application? I read some thread from people applying for work permission that granted at the spot if apply in person and have all the evidence ready. Does it mean the application for changing visa conditions will not have anything to do with the application for partner visa?
Sorry for the complicated questions but staying home ALL day EVERYDAY drives me nuts !!

I am very appreciated for any response in advance

Hi I was on a bridging visa - been waiting since January for defacto visa. I completed form 1005 and emailed this to immigration without any bank statements etc and was granted a 'no work restriction' whilst awaiting my visa decision. Form was very simple - I applied Friday and had it granted last night - so 4 working days.
Whilst we have money in savings- me not working would cause financial hardship as I'd be reliant on my partner. I was on a WHV prior to lodging my De Facto application.

I'm sending my husbands 1005 form in tomorrow, hopefully it's granted as we will struggle to pay our rent without his income, and the delay on getting his spouse visa even looked at is looking to be a long time. I'll update on the outcome.

Good luck all!

Unhappy

Hi,

I'm just amazed, how quickly some people get their requested visa granted... I applied for the de facto partner visa on the 31st of May, of course outside a confirmation letter nothing else has happened. I also made a pretty convincing application for removing work restrictions and mailed it to the Brisbane processing centre about 2 months ago, and no response at all. Me and my Australian resident partner moved back to Australia from overseas in January. He had to re-start his personal training business and because of the economical situation now he struggles a bit to get new clients. Whatever, after reading these posts I got pretty excited that I have a good chance that I can start working while waiting for the visa, but now I'm very disappointed. I regularly read the visa timeline forum too, where so many people get their visa in like 6 days!! I just wonder how the processing centre operates. I've been living together with my partner for over 3 years now, we have a very good application. I have good education and great working experience. I just don't get it and it really frustrates me...

Good luck to everyone!

Hi, so I assuming you have not got your work permission yet while waiting? I did mine and it was very easy and fast! all I did was, filled up the aplication (form 1005), printed out bank transactions ( most recent 3 months) of both my saving account and joint account with my partner and done ! got my full-time work permission just in 2 days !! I'm living in Melbourne so applied in person in Melbourne, VIC. Hope it will help you.
Good luck
p.s. I lodged my partner visa application on Aug, havnt heard anything from them yet, apart of confirmnation letter of course. Looks like a long run doesnt it

Yeah, unfortunately. I did the same as you, filled out the 1005, bank statements, joint account, my account, that shows that I regularly get money from my dad from Europe, because I can't earn money... I copied grocery receipts, energy bills, rental agreement, my partners income and expenses and so on...
I think now it's more than 2 months ago that I sent it to the Brisbane processing centre (I was told by an immigration officer in Brisbane where to send it) and absolutely no response whatsoever...

It's possible it was sent to wrong place or misplaced when it got there. If noone there can find it then I suggest doing it again and taking it to the Immi office.

finally got permission to work!!!

Finally some good news!
After months of waiting and several calls to the immi office, yesterday I was granted full work permission. YEEEEEEAA!
My application wasn't misplaced, they just didn't do anything with it. First I went to the Brisbane office (I live on the Gold Coast) in person just to be informed that I came for nothing because I have to send the application via post....
My application arrived to their office on the 5th of October. I waited 3 months, nothing happened. I called them in January, they said they received it, but there's no decision yet.. Two weeks later I called again, this time they promised to call me back within 3-4 days. That - of course - didn't happen. After a week waiting I called again, and the guy said nothing has been done with my application. I asked, what is the normal processing time for this application, and he said 6 weeks... I'd been waiting for over 16 weeks without any result - I said and he promised me again that he is giving it to a case officer. He forwarded it while I was with him on the phone. He also said they'll get back to me in 3-4 business days.
I couldn't wait, so just called them again on the 3rd day, and was informed, that there's a decision but they can't disclose it to me on the phone but they can transfer my call to somebody else who can give me a login password to the VEVO system where I can have a look. I logged in and saw that day I was granted a new bridging visa with no conditions. I didn't know what that meant, so called immi again. They said it means there's no restriction, so I have full permission to work. Yesterday afternoon I received an email with the letter. FINALLY! So very happy now. After living here for more than a year, I can start making some cash !

I'm still on hold (it's been almost 9 months), probably 2-3 months away from getting decision on the partner visa..

Good luck to all of you!
