Lifting work restrictions on BVA!

Hi all!

As some of you know, I submitted my application for a partner visa in June 2011, at the end of December my six months with my current employer will be up... I have been on the search for other jobs to go into when my six months with my current employer is up but as I live in the country, there is very little job opportunities available at the moment. We are planning on moving to the city where there will hopefully be more opportunities for us both when I get my visa but not until then. One issue we do have is that we do have a little bit of savings but that won't last very long when my job finishes. Also, my partner is currently unemployed...

So what I'm trying to get round to is do you think on this basis I will be able to get the work restriction lifted? And also, will the fact that I would be applying for financial hardship affect my visa application?? Is it contradicting what I'm saying with regards to my partner sponsoring me?

I hope this makes sense, I probably could have written it a bit clearly but hopefully someone can help!

Thank you

Hi,
I applied for a partner visa back (820/801)in Jan. In august got a dream job so applied to have the work restriction lifted off my BVA in nov. Submitted form 1005 and bank statements for my partner and I and our savings as well. Highlighted the expenses on the bank statements ie travel and food for both of us. Also did an excel spread sheet on income and expenses for both of us. Also scanned in some receipts, rent and bills.

Said on the form that my partner could support me if I didn't have a job but we are planning to buy a car and travel abroad so I need the job to help save with that.

Submitted the form and evidence and 9 days later got an email saying I could work full time. Don't think it effect partner application as you are in a relationship and both need to be earning. Also hear they usually grant it for people waiting on partner visa.

Hope that helps. Also I scanned in all my info and emailed it to them. They said to do that so think that's why it got processed quickly as well.

Thank you efar, it's good to know that it worked for you... We're planning on going back to the uk for a visit when I eventually get my visa so this is what our savings are going to be used for, along with saving up for a deposit on a house when we get back from the Uk and hopefully move to the city... So I guess I will just explain all this on the form and in an attached statement if necessary... Also, do you think it's worth me printing of a few job sites showing the lack of work in the town we currently live in??

Thank you again do your help!

Hi
Not sure about adding the lack of jobs but suppose it wouldn't do any harm. I sent cover letter too explaining all we have planned to do with both of us earning. I did email them a list of evidence asking was there anything else to include and did they needed to be signed by JP. they said that what I listed would be enough and no need to have them certified.
Check out thread Form 1005 I ask questions on here before I submitted and got great replies.
Hope that help. Good luck.

Thank you! One more question, where did you find the email address to send it to them?? I'm 4 hours away from the Melbourne office, so emailing it to the would be ideal...

[email protected] it's on the immigration web page with the phone number and address for Sydney. If I ever have a question I email then. I get a auto reply email but usually what I've asked isn't answered in that so I would get another email later that day with a reply to my questions. I also send form 1005 there. They didn't send auto reply that time just 9 days later I get approval email. I have sent them lots of questions to this address and they usually very good with their replies.

Actually first saw it on my acknowledgement letter so check your letter might have email for Melbourne office or could just use the same email address for all partner visas not sure in that. Hope that helps.

Thank you, that is helpful!! I have just been on the phone to immigration because I had none of the numbers for the forms, like receipt numbers and things and asked about emailing it in and they said I had to post it in so might just post and hope there is a quick turnaround...

I've filled in the form, there was a few questions I'm not sure about, like where it asks for weekly income, I am employed on a casual basis and so my pay varies quite dramatically sometimes from one week to the next so I've put varies, casual and then said see attached, do you think this is okay?? I've also said see attached for expenses because I will do a income and expenses thing as you suggested... On the form as well, where it asks about family members and why they can't support you, I've put that my partner is currently unemployed and looking for work but he can support me with his savings and out joint savings...

I've also photo copied our house phone bill, electricity bill and mobile phone bill to send. Then I am planning on printing out our current account statement and highlighting our expenses then I will put that into the income and expenses chart... I will also print off our individual savings account statements to show our savings...


I have also written a statement, in it I have basically said that I'm working on a casual basis, it has been quiet recently and so we have been living off my small weekly wage and savings however hours will pick up a lot in the new year. I've mentioned that we have been job searching but thing is proving difficult to find short term work in our little regional town in Victoria. Then I've talked about our savings and said that we do have plans for this money, namely a trip home hen my visa is eventually decided as we will not have seen alot of family and friends for two years, plus it's my sister and friends weddings... I've also mentioned our planned move to the city when we know about the visa and that we are saving so we can afford our own place. Then I've gone on to say what things I have attached to the form and then just signed the statement and dated it...

Does that all sound okay?? Anything else you can think of??

Thank you so much for your help, it will be a great relief if I can get this sorted!!

I have just filled in the 1005 form and wrote a letter also stating the reason we want the work condition to be remove. We also have a spread sheet with the breakdown of the of our expense versus income and all the bills to support the evidence…we are exaggerate our expenses a little bit more so we would have a better case(we have receipt to support it though) we are planning to submit it early next week…wish me luck
