If you log into VEVO with the grant number of his previous visa you can see what visa he is currently on. Otherwise you can ring up and get a password for it to check.

I can join here as well now, did submit my applicaton on the 24th of June 2014, over a few days have been submitting the sponsor application and all the evidence. Still have some to upload, but the main part has been done. Hopefully i'll qualify straight to PR and the decision won't take too long to come :)

Hi, if your partner isn't the holder of substantive visa and is on a bridging visa, the application might fall under the schedule 3 criteria where they can ask the visa to be applied from overseas or to supply statement outlining compelling reasons to grant visa onshore.

long standing relationship of more than 2 years, a dependent child are some of the compelling reasons they consider.

In case you get asked such a thing do feel free to email me as i been through all this. email is my username at gmail dot com.

He is on a Bridging visa bcuz he was on MRT for his student visa. So i think wen the bridging visa for 820 comes, does he have to wait for it to expire or he can just jump to the new bridging visa ? My agent said he could apply for medicare on his new BV but not sure abt working full time.

Well, i have no idea about that. But I applied through an agent so I think it should be fine.
What situation have u been through? The agent just applied the application yesterday through paper post so not sure when the bridging visa will b granted.
I paid 30,500 dollars for the agent so Wish me luck

Australian dollars?!?! That is a criminal price if that's truly how much you paid. I had one of the best agents in Sydney to deal with my complicated case and it cost like $6k. You WAY overpaid. I would be very skeptical of your agent if he truly charged you that much, and I'd be reporting him/her.

Hi, its good that you got professional help.

I was on bridging visa A. Mrt was rejected. I got granted bridging c with no travel and no work rights. i applied and got work rights later which were granted within 7 days.

i was asked for schedule 3 waiver compelling reasons, they sometimes apply when you are not on a substantive visa and are on a bridging visa.

In your case. bridging visa will be granted first thing after acknowledgement of application and after charges are deducted.

if your partner is on bridging visa he'll probably get bridging visa c with no travel and no working rights. If you have expenses exceeding family income and got some evidence to show for it. Working rights can be applied using form 1005 showing financial harship. Decision is normally made within couple weeks.

That is highway robbery! Even with visa fees included that is 3 times or so what you should be paying!

Sorry but it sounds like you have been taken for a ride.

Samanthayang 06-27-2014 08:28 AM

Yeah it was seriously 30500 dollars. They said my husband is UNC which means Unlawful Non Citizen so .. And i heard like lots of ppl paying like that there. Some goes up to 38000 or sthing.
The fee also includes Mrt n highcourt service fee ( not gov fee) if the application is unsuccesful.
I have no idea guys. Just talked to the agent n he said the bridging visa will be granted on Monday.
And hes now on Bridging visa B ( 20 hrs work n study)
