820 BVA question

Hi all,

Posted this question in my intro thread but realised I ought to be asking here. I understand that when applying for the 820 partner visa you're put on a bridging visa A for the 12-15 months it takes to process and that you get full work rights. But what about study rights? Do you get any at all or are you not allowed until the 820 is granted?

I'm asking because I've found it impossible to find employment on my working holiday visa. I cannot work in my own field (psychology) for various reasons (not eligible for skilled migrant and cannot get registration), am not qualified enough for anything else, so was considering doing a TAFE to find an entry into the job market. But considering the waiting times for the partner visa I don't think I should delay it further by going on a student one. At the same time, I'm genuinely scared I'll remain unemployed for those 12-15 months.

Any thoughts?

Hi Lyra,

You'll have full permission for both work and study under the BVA.

No worries! It's not easy getting a job, so it's good to have an option to do more studies

Hi Karina and Lyra,

I cannot write my own post yet as I am a new member but I am hoping you can help.
My partner is currently on a student visa. We are hoping to apply for 820 visa in Jan 2017, after he finishes his course but before his student visa expires in March 2017.

I have read conflicting info about work rights on a BVA when coming off a student visa. Is it the case that he would have full work rights once the BVA kicks in or is it still linked to the previous student visa 20 hours working conditions?

Thanks
Cat

Just keep in mind that you may have to pay very high overseas student fees as you are not a permanent resident.

Under the legislation a BVA granted as a result of lodging a Partner application has no conditions and hence allows unrestricted work and study. Note that the BVA does not come into effect until the current student visa expires.

As noted elsewhere the study may be unrestricted but will be subject to the local fee policy which applies in that education sector. There may be differences from State to State in this regard.

Yes it can be an expensive option.
WA State legislation for the VET (TAFE) sector makes an exception for holders of 820, 309 and 457 (secondary applicant) visas by classifying them with Australian Residents and hence local fees apply. But bridging visa holders pay full commercial/international fees.

I'd be interested to know what happens in other States.

Thanks for getting back to me Ric! I have another query around the course and visa dates if you don't mind?

As his course finishes in Jan 2017 but his Student Visa expires 8 March, will the student visa still stand until 8 March even though he is not attending a course between Jan and March and if so is he free to leave and reenter Australia between Jan and March?
Thanks a mill

His student visa will still be active until the expiry date, even though he's not attending course.
