Work entitlement during Bridging A

Hey folks,

I have applied for Partner 820 early this year and now I am starting my Bridging A visa to wait for immigration to view my application.

During this time however, on my vevo it does say under Work entitlements:
"The Visa Holder has unlimited Work Entitlements"

Does this mean I can now apply for full-time jobs?

One of my friends was really sure that the bridging A visa continues the working rights of the previous visa: for example, if you were on student visa previously, the following bridging visa A also only gives you limited work entitlements at 40 hours a fortnight.

Anyone confused about this issue as well?

Please help!!!

Not all BVAs are equal. VEVO is pretty clear on it as is your BVA grant letter that should say "nil" conditions and further explain it clearly in one simple sentence further down.

Your grant letter is what you go off of, not what someone else thinks!

Just confirming that youve understood the requirement for your current substansative visa to have expired and your BVA has come into effect - if so then by the message posted above you've got full work rights..

Friends are the absolute worst source of advice. The BVA conditions do not only depend on the previous visa held, but also the visa applied for.

You will usually find the correct information on your BV visa grant letter and you can check your current visa conditions on VEVO.
