Hi Everyone ,

I have recently submitted application for the Partner visa onshore. I just wanted to clarify a question.

While filling out the online application i have filled the Statuary declaration, nature of relationship and responsibilities. After submitting the application i can see that they are asking same details as an attachment.

Does this mean i have to submit them again or what ever i have filled in the online application will be enough? Your feedback would be much appreciated.

Thanks

If you answered the narrative boxes in the application online, that is your statement. No need to do another one.

Don't go off the "recommended" upload list as it is generic and not specific to your app, therefore many won't apply. Just go off the checklist on the visa website.

There wasn't too much drama for me to find my current job to be honest. When I changed job last year a lot of ads on Seek website only asked for work right. Of course it will be another different story when it comes to jobs within banking industry, gov sectors, etc. Indeed when I started my current job last year my current employer only asked for tax number and some information such as address, bank account for salary, etc. I am Melbourne-based and so is my visa application.

The only thing I found tricky to be on bridging visa was home loan and I have gone through quite a bit of drama regarding that. Luckily I still got home loan done with CBA which was the only bank would consider and offered me home loan jointly with my partner.


Thank you Stella, that is really helpful! Funny enough, hubby and I are also looking to buy a house and are facing the age problem regarding home loans - I shall now check with CBA!

As for the jobs, may I ask if your job is Office/Business type? And was it fixed term or just temp? When your submitted your CV, did you mention anything about the Bridging Visa? Or did you just mentioned that you had working rights (and left the rest for the interview)?

Forgive the multiple questions, trying to get my head around this bridging visa business haha!

Anyone else with a London case officer? I need some hope!

Sorry Twinkley Star, our immigration profiles are very similar but my application is being processed from Victoria, not London. On a positive note, I am being told that the London Office is “on fire” at the moment therefore you might get good news soon? A friend of ours applied from London (this was an offshore application) and got his 820/801 partner visa in less than 4 months 😳👍🎉.

Thank you!! I think I’m checking too often and I was really hopeful after being requested the police checks! I hope they process the onshore ones as speedy! How are you getting on with your process?

For the home loan, please keep in mind that I wasn't too sure whether my banking history with CBA helped with my home loan. I have been banking with CBA and have had continuously income and tax record since I was student. All other banks I tried, no retail staff would consider to put through my case to their credit centres. The CBA banker I spoke to was the only one who would give it a go even though we did not hold high hope.

For career, I am on a permanent full time position in corporate environment. No, I didn't not disclose any information related to my visa on my CV nor during the interview. The only time I was asked questions related to my visa was in a meeting with a recruiter during that job hunting period. The recruiter asked few questions to make sure I have work right.

Bridging Visa mostly A and B give you full work rights. Being on a bridging visa after applying for a partner visa helps (helped in our case). My wife got her BVB in December 2017 and after coming back from the new year vacation she started looking for work. Recruiters were aware of the BVB. However she had full work rights! It did put some people off but majority (80%) of them were ok with the full work rights considering it was a BVB.

She now has landed herself a job as an IT Business Analyst full time and a permanent position. Good pay to start off with. Was more stressful for me than her when she was not finding a job. Feels like I am out on Bail now :D:D:D

End of the day 'In My View' it is how you position yourself in the market and if your resume really stands out, there is no reason why you won't have a full time permanent position. The 'You can't find a job in a Bridging visa' is purely a myth. I've had few of my friends on a Bridging visa getting a full time job too.

Hope that helps.

I think part that comes into play is a BVA does not always have full work rights. In the case of a partner visa application, it does. But for an employer not savvy in thr partner visa process (and why would they be?), if they read up on the BVA on the immigration site and it states that work conditions of the previous visa apply and your previous visa was a tourist visa or WHV, there could be confusion on their part.

Best to print out the BVA grant letter that says "nil" conditions and show that there are no restrictions, in my opinion. Only because not all BVAs come with full work rights.

Well agree to an extent but however most of them ask what Visa have you applied for. If the bridging visa is based on the partner visa, then most of them are ok with it atleast from our experience so far.

Most of them as far as I am aware do a Vevo Check to check the work rights. Well if they don't do a Vevo check and purely rely on what DIBP states on their website like you mentioned above, then we have an issue.

But as you said if the Bridging visa can be explained on the 'full' work rights thingy it should hold good and will put any confusion to bed.

Thanks Skybluebrewer for clarifying the details.

One more thing, i received an email from the assessment unit askign afp of the sponsor. Does this mean the application is with case officer for finalising or is it just part of initial checks?

Thanks

No way to tell really. Some people get decisions immediately after supplying requested documents, some have had to wait several months after, and some even a year or more. Most likely close to a decision but there is a possibility that you can still wait a while longer.
