Hi Claire - I think I answered this on a different thread you may have - bma is correct - regardless of the expiration date of your visitor visa, if you stay past the 3-month stay, on the first day after that stay, your visitor visa will expire automatically and the bridging visa will activate.

Also, to clarify the bridiging visa conditions question, as of 24 November all bridging visas issued for subclass 820/801 onshore partner visas will be issued with no conditions, regardless of what conditions might have been on the person's previous substantive visa. So those who were on visitor visas will be able to work full time as soon as the bridging visa activates.

Hi, are we allowed to study too on the BVA?

Yup, no conditions. Work and study as much as you want. You won't qualify for Australian citizen deals on study where you can defer the fees and pay back in payments, but there is no limit placed on study under BV-A's issued from 24 November for onshore partner visas.

Thanks Mark. My visitor visa is a 6-month TR 676 one with multiple entries. I was in Australia from April-Oct this year, then returned again to Australia on Oct 29 so that I could refresh it (and have more time in putting together my 820 application). According to VEVO my visa will expire on Apr 29. Is there any way at all I can get around this so that my bridging visa kicks in before this or will I have to wait till Apr 30 for that to happen?

This is what it says for me on VEVO:

Quote:
Visa class/subclass TR 676
Visa description VISITOR
Visa applicant Primary
Visa status In Effect
Visa grant date 20/02/2012
Visa expiry date 29/04/2013
Entries allowed Multiple entries to and from Australia during the validity of your visa
Must not arrive after 20/02/2013
Period of stay 06 months

Included in this visa
Visa conditions 8101 - No work: The visa holder cannot work in Australia.
MAXIMUM 3 MONTHS STUDY - 8201
Is someone able to clear it up for me? I'm terribly confused. :/

Entries allowed Multiple entries to and from Australia during the validity of your visa
Must not arrive after 20/02/2013 The visa is going to expire soon so you must be in Australia before Feb 20 2013 and it was a year from the grant date
Period of stay 06 months

Included in this visa
Visa conditions 8101 - No work: The visa holder cannot work in Australia.
MAXIMUM 3 MONTHS STUDY - 8201
You can stay a maximum of six months each time but you are allowed to leave and come back for another 6 months but not after February 20.
This is how I would read it IMHO but I am not a migration agent, if unsure ring immigration and confirm it.
