Question 820 and Bridging visa

Finally after a lot of time, sorting and collecting info, filed for the 820/801 a couple of days ago, and got the notification yesterday, just before the shut the site down for maintenance.
Anyway, I'm slightly confused as they say a bridging visa has been granted Class A, subclass 010, but that it is not in effect because her ETA is still in effect. As it still have 6 months left on it (she used 6 months 2 years ago, of 12), does that mean she has to use up the other 6 months first? Or should she ask for it to be cancelled? Or, does it even matter?

On a side note, what an insane ton of paperwork, asking the same questions repeatedly! I've answered the same question on different forms up to four times! Does the applicant have any parents, alive or not..... well name me one person who doesn't! At least that's worth a slight laugh after hours, days filling forms or being online.

PS I've studied this site for nearly a year, and found a ton of helpful answers, so thanks for all that.

If she cancels her ETA, the bridging visa gets cancelled along with it. She needs to simply wait until the ETA expires in 6 months and then the bridging visa will take effect. It can be a pain since she can't work during those 6 months, but at least she'll still have the bridging visa so she can remain in Australia until the partner visa is granted.

Thanks Maggie-May, I kinda thought that. It's no problem as she doesn't need to work.

And just run into a problem this minute. I went to upload the filled Form 80 and got hit with 'file too large'! Well it's their file, and as usual its scanned as a PDF but is 10.1MB. Can I split it into 2 parts?

Ah, this is crazy, I split it anyway, and it tells me 4.78MB is bigger than 5MB and won't accept it???? Headache time, so I'm leaving it for now :-(

This file should not be this big. This happens when you scan a document and then save it, as it scans at 300dpi. What you should try is try to reprint this PDF, and when you pick the printer, you should choose to print this as a PDF. In my computer I have can select

Print to PDF

Microsoft to PDF,

and a few others, depending on the type of PRINTER.

You should also use this method when you want to print all the photos you can print about 15 pictures in one PDF, under 5mb

Cheers

Harry

There are also free online tools to reduce the size of a PDF so you don't have to scan it again.
For example: https://smallpdf.com/compress-pdf but there are quite a few different ones if you do a search.

It does print it as a pdf, and scans to a pdf. I did find the settings at 300 dpi, reduced it to 75 dpi and made NO difference! Each page becomes about 650kb EACH, when the whole document was smaller than that. Crazy, but I'll search for those tools. I even managed to get it digitally signed, without printing it off, but thats not acceptable either as it makes it encripted..

Good to see you have been able to make them smaller.

The trick with my way is that you don't actually print the form, just select print as PDF then it would ave been smaller.
