Work rights on bridging visa : from Student visa 573 to partner visa 820/801

Hi everyone!

Can anyone confirm with the work rules are in regards to beiing on a bridging visa, between a Student visa 573 to partner visa 820/801?

I know that a bridging visa is an extension of the visa you are currently on. However, as it is a student visa, you are entitled to work full-time when the course is not in semester. Does this mean that on a bridging visa, he will be able to work full-time as his course is not in semester (as it will be completed).

Thank you! :-)

Just for everyone's knowledge, I called immi and they told me that:

1. My fiance can work full time until his visa expires (which is in March, his course ends in November, so can work full-time November - March)

2. When bridging visa comes into effect, the work limitations apply again (max 20 hours per week) as if his course was in session again (even though the course finished in Novmeber)

3. To get this work restriction lifted, we would have to include form 1005 in our application, which would be granted within 4 weeks

Hooray, for an answer at least :-p
