Bridge Visa A - Work Limitations


My name is Nina and I'm from Germany. I tried looking for information about this specific case, hope I'm not double posting but couldn't find a relevant situation.

Moved here a few years ago and 3 months ago applied for the 186 PR with my employer. Everything is sent and sorted to my believe. My work experience was approved, got all health checks, all Police Checks, (etc)...

I was on a 457 Temp Visa before (same employer), which expired a couple months ago and automatically put me in a Bridge Visa A. All good so far...

My intention is to stay with my employer for 2 or more years, I'm happy with the company and interested in growing here. However, I've been contacted by an Australian startup in a space I'm passionate about who urgently need someone with my skills and my debate is the following:

I am fully aware of the agreements and while my intention is to keep working for my employer for much longer, I know I can legally change jobs anytime after the visa is granted. But due to the urgency this startup has it got me wondering if I can even consider it at all?

I went on my ImmiAccount and notice that I'm on a Bridge Visa A with no work restrictions. It says "Full Working Rights" and no attached conditions or restrictions...

While I understand that I may not be able to consider anything like this until my visa is granted, I can't find any official information anywhere (except random forums) which specifies my limitations, where I could consider it, or whether would get my Visa application denied if I changed employer at all...

Thanks in advance!

Since you've applied for an employer-sponsored 186, if you resign the employer will withdraw their nomination and you need to withdraw your application. This will also cancel your bridging visa.
