Smile Full working rights on bringing visa A for application on or after 24 November

Hey guys,

I just received this email from the partner visa centre and thought it could be of interest for some of you.

The second paragraph is good news. Unfortunately, I applied on the 22nd of November


Can I work while my partner visa is being processed?

- If you lodged your partner visa application prior to Saturday 24 November 2012 and were granted a Bridging Visa A (BVA) at that time, then your BVA is subject to the same work conditions (eg ‘no work’ or ‘work restricted’) as applied to the substantive visa (eg student, visitor, 457) you held at time of lodgement of the partner visa application. Once your substantive visa ceases, your BVA will come into effect and you will continue to be subject to these work conditions. If you wish to vary these work conditions, download Form 1005 from our website and send it to us at the address provided in your partner visa application acknowledgement letter. Note that you cannot apply for a change to any work conditions while any substantive visa you hold is still in effect.

- If you lodged your partner visa application on or after Saturday 24 November 2012 and were granted a Bridging Visa A (BVA) at that time, then your BVA was issued without any work restrictions, irrespective of the conditions that were applicable to the substantive visa (eg student, visitor, 457) you held at time of lodgement of the partner visa application. Please note that you will continue to be subject to the conditions (including any work restrictions) applicable to your substantive visa until that visa ceases, at which time your BVA will come into effect and you may work without restriction. Note that it is not possible to change the conditions applicable to any substantive visa that is still in effect.

- If you were granted a Bridging Visa C or E (BVC, BVE) when you lodged your partner visa application, irrespective of the date of that application, your BVC / BVE will have a ‘no work’ condition. You may apply to have that condition removed if you are experiencing financial hardship. To apply for removal of this condition, download Form 1005 from our website and send it to us at the address provided in your partner visa application acknowledgement letter:

I know, missngel, I can't believe it either! As holly said, I am devastated! If I had known it in advance I would have waited for two days before submitting my application

Yeah, I think it might be a useful info, especially for those who are working on WHV, going to apply for 820 partner visa onshore and think they're supposed to leave their current job after six months with the same employer.

Missngel, I see we're more or less on the same boat. Did you apply to waive the conditions of your bridging visa by any chance? and if so, did you hear anything yet?

Mogliettina, i havent applied for working restrictions to be lifted yet as my partners bridging visa starts on the 21st of december.
Does anyone know if i can send in form 1005 now or do i have to wait till he is on his bridging visa? Its not fair that we have to prove financial hardship just because we sent in our application early!!

Thanks for your reply, Missngel. I know, it's totally unfair! especially for people like us whose visa did not expire before the 24th of November
Apparently, your partner is not allowed to apply before his bridging visa kicks in (According to paragraph 1 above: you cannot apply for a change to any work conditions while any substantive visa you hold is still in effect), but I heard of people who successfully applied before their bridging visa was in effect (have a look here: http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...ging-visa.html ).
However, as far as I understand, even if you apply before, you will have to wait until the 21st of December (when the substantive visa ceases) for the condition change to come into effect.

Thanks for the info Mogliettina. I will probably apply for it before the bridging visa kicks in so i can get it over and done with. Have you applied for yours yet? How detailed must it be? Because it is hard for my partner and i to prove financial hardship seeing as we are living at my parents house at the moment and we arent paying any bills. Hopefully a stat dec saying that we would like to move out, get married etc etc will be enough, even though i would really like to say that my poor partner is going crazy not being able to work!!!

You can send in the form earlier and they may be granted early but will not come into effect until you begin bridging,
This may be good news as immi would now you would expect that they will have to approve all applications to change the work rights, so maybe it just means less paperwork for everyone
