Exclamation Visa 187 / Need advice !

Hey guys!

I'm a little confused and I'm after some help, here is my situation :

My boss is about to apply for my nomination very soon, and I would probably lodge my application at the same time, now my problem is that my WHV expires the 2 of April so in about a month, I don't think I'm going to have enough time to get the english test before I lodge my application... Could I lodge my application and then upload my english test after or could I somehow get a bridging visa that allows me to stay maybe 2 or 3 weeks more after my WHV has run out so I could get my results and then apply for my visa? What are my options here? Freaking out a little bit , thanks guys.

If you are applying under Direct Entry, then you must have competent English at the time of application. If you don't , the application will be refused.If you pass the test and it is dated before you lodge the application, you may be able to upload the results afterwards, but you won't know your score at the time you lodge the application, so it is risky.

Are you on your first WHV and are you eligible for a second one ? Tourist visas are not usually granted after a WHV. You can always try, but it is a risky approach.

Bridging visas are only granted in conjunction with an onshore application, not by themselves.
