I値l apply by the end of April and I currently hold a Visitor Visa Subclass 600. As my current visa has work restrictions I知 concerned that my Bridging Visa will also come with work restrictions. As the processing times have been so long I知 worried about not being able to work for a long time.

Thanks for those who reply! 🙂
I was on a sponsored 457 visa, appleid for the 461 then when my 457 expired, went directly onto the bridging visa. The bridging visa came with the exact same work restrictions as the 457 so luckily i kept my job, it just meant i couldn't work elsewhere. I know of other people who have gone on the bridging visa and the working conditions are not being able to work which would be awful.
I think it all depends on what restrictions you are currently on. my work restrictions is 8107 i believe??

Hi all,

was anyone granted Bridging visa A with no working rights? If so, did you apply separately asking for permission to work showing financial hardship? and how did it go?

I was on ETA 601 visitor visa and applied for 461 onshore, the condition on my current BVA is no work rights, but I can study without limitation. so I guess if you are currently on visitor visa then your BVA will have the same restrictions as the previous visa. I have heard someone applying another form to have the work restrictions removed but you have to prove the financial hardship.

Thanks for sharing your experience. This is also what I heard... you will get the same conditions are on the current visa.
Yes studying without limitation comes at a cost... it's not free. I would rather working than looking at the ceiling or studying and spending money I don't have. Do you know anyone who applied to get the working restrictions removed? I wonder how difficult are they making it...

Sorry, I don't know anyone who did it. Anyways, it costs nothing giving it a try (just need to provide some paper documents). I totally understand how hard it is not to have work rights and just sit there waiting for your visa to be granted especially the processing time now takes up to 2 years. :-(

Thanks Kaitlin,
can you tell me when did you apply and how long it took to get the 461?
Also, did you provide police cert and medical after? or was it all together with your first application?
