What happens the moment you apply for 820?

Hi,

I am currently on a WHV and will be applying for a partner visa at the end of December once we meet the 1 year of living together criteria on 20/12. My WHV will be up on 9/1/19.

I am currently on a six month contract in work which will end Christmas Eve. Both myself and my employer want me to continue working once my bridging visa starts on the 10/1. However I am afraid they won't offer me a new contract without being able to show I have full working rights. Once I pay for the visa and submit my application at the end of December, will I get a notice of my bridging visa then? Or do you get a notice right before your new visa begins?

I would just like to know so I can let my employer know, and also have some reassurance that I will be going back to a job after Christmas!

Hope this all makes sense.

Thanks.

Bridging visa A grant letter listing conditions ( if any) is normally issued as soon as a valid sc. 820 has been lodged. Sometimes it takes a few days.

The bridging visa ( and associated conditions) will come into effect when your WHV ceases. You can confirm this on VEVO and so can your employer.

Normally as soon as you pay the 820 fee you get 2 emails.

1) Application acknowledgement of 820 application letter (this allows you to apply and get Medicare immediately).

2) The Bridging Visa A - will have full work rights and you 6 months will then be reset after this "kicks in" I believe. Check then if the 6 month restriction is still applied.

An a few occasions the #2 has been a little slow to follow by a few days or a week - if you do not get it within a week follow it up.

** There is no 12 month living together requirement - The relationship must be 12 months or more to claim de facto but not live together all that time.

The BVA for a partner visa comes with no work restrictions. It's a bit different from other BVAs, in that it doesn't follow the same conditions as your previous visa.

Yep but VEVO check that to be sure.
