Question BVA work conditions - quick question!

Hi,

I'm a long-time lurker on this forum & have found the information it provides absolutely invaluable with my 820/801 application

My WHV (417) expired yesterday & today I transferred to my BVA (granted last Aug when I applied for 820).

I checked VEVO briefly this morning & it doesn't show any work rights on my visa. My grant notification says "When your Bridging visa (class WA) is in effect, you will have full permission to work".

Quick question - even though I came off a 417 with the 6 month condition on it, can I work for my company indefinitely on this visa?

Thank you & happy (chilly) Friday from Melbourne xx

VEVO works back to front. It does not actually say what work rights you have, it just lists the conditions (incl. work restrictions).

So if it says "nil conditions", it means just that.

It confuses the hell out of employers...

Hi, Nick,

Thanks for your reply.

My concern is that VEVO doesn't list work conditions at all...

It lists entry conditions, and then all the other stuff (name, passport number etc), but nothing about work.

The grant notification says I have full permission to work, so I'm assuming it is all good?

Thanks!

Yes, you are good to work on a BV A. Many people have done that, including my partner.

As Nick said, if VEVO doesn't say you CANNOT work, then by default you can.

CollegeGirl and msamy like this.

If you look at the BVA grant notice you received when you lodged the application, that should say you have full work rights with no restrictions.
