I'm posting my partner's application to the Perth office tomorrow. This thread was perfectly timed and very informative - we are submitting decision ready also, and have put a lot of effort into preparation.

Fingers crossed it doesn't take >6 months to process, we want to go on our honeymoon overseas sometime before the end of the year and I highly doubt that's a good enough reason for a bridging visa B

When you've applied for a partner visa, when your Bridging Visa A kicks in you will automatically have work rights. You don't have to apply. But your BVA won't kick in until after your current visa expires, so you're stuck with whatever your work conditions are on your current visa until that time.

Honestly, it might be! I know weddings are... I think you could make a case for a honeymoon!

Hmm this is interesting. I was always under the impression that as soon as you were granted the BVA, whatever other visa you had at the time become null and invalid. My partner has work rights (on the subclass 300) but she was planning to register with Medicare as soon as her BVA was granted so that we could save money on her $100 a month international cover private health insurance. Do you think she'll have to wait until her 300 expires before we can do that? It doesn't expire until the end of August 2013

lol good point - never really thought about it in too much detail. Actually last night we were just talking about it and since we are going on an interstate holiday in December we might just wait until about March 2014 before we go overseas again. By that time the 820 will hopefully have been well and truly finalised.

edit: I think I just answered my own question. Here's a quote from the Immi website regarding Medicare and the 820 visa subclass:

Note: You may also be eligible to enrol in Medicare, if you are married and have applied for, but not yet been granted, this visa.

Source: Partner Visa: Onshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 820 and 801) right at the very bottom of the page.
So this means as soon as she has the application valid confirmation letter, she should hopefully be able to take that to Medicare and register.

Her current visa will stay active until it expires then her BVA becomes active. She will be able to apply for medicare no problem with her application acceptance letter and passport. That's all I needed to do it and I was able to register while still on my WHV.

Is there anyway you can get your bridging visa to kick in sooner?
My hubby is dying to work and honestly it will be a huge financial stress lifted but his current tourist visa doesnt expire until 8th july so the BVA wont kick in until then under usual conditions and it would be nice if we could make this sooner.

Interesting about medicare, will be heading down there as soon as the letter arrives.

Nothing heard since and no CO appointed.
After posting two days ago stating my son's partner had heard nothing from the Perth office since Nov 2012 in regards to her 820.
Out of the blue today she received a phone call, and follow up email which we assume is her CO.
She was requested to do an AFP check and Canadian RCMP check, she originally sent in an OPP (Ontario) check but obviously that was not enough.
At least she now knows the application is being worked on.

There's no way to have your BVA kick in sooner unfortunately. I was on a 676 tourist visa from Oct till only just 2 weeks ago with no work conditions, had to wait till that ran out before my BVA kicked in (even though Immi issued me my BVA pretty much the same week I lodged my 820 application). Major bummer!
