if hes got bridging visa b, he is not unlawful. only a holder of non-substantive visa which triggers schedule 3 after application.

best way would have been at this stage committing with agent for partner visa processing only. would have cost you around $10,000. If the case rejected and MRT appeal is lodged, would've paid the next amount and then so on till high court, etc.

I have seen Schedule 3 waivers granted in far worse circumstances and once the schedule 3 is waived its only showing the case officer you have a genuine ongoing relationship.

paying upfront assuming that your case will go to mrt, then high court wasn't a good move. it all depends on the CO. Sometimes Schedule 3 criteria is not even applied, for example if your case officer is too busy and after he looks at your file its already 12+ months. Now case officer knows if you go to MRT its gonna be another 12+ months totalling 2 years of relationship hence waiver will be granted by MRT on the grounds of long standing relationship.

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)

Is this a registered migration agent? I'm sorry, but it sounds like you're being taken advantage of. There's no way I'd pay in advance "in case it goes to MRT", and that's at least 3x the fee I'd expect for even an incredibly complicated case. What happens if your visa application is granted with no other information needed - will the agent refund you the fees that weren't required?

Welcome...
 
Hi Bay56
Welcome aboard... good luck with your application. It's quite an achievement to get it all together. You'll have your bridging visa soon and be able to get your Medicare card... then it's just a long wait. We're all here with you. Cheers... :)

Hey,

I thought I might join this group now since I've been on this forum for a little bit and I really find it extremely useful here :)

I applied for the 820 visa three months ago, on 28/3/2014, online.
My application is decision-ready and I believe our "case" is pretty straight forward.

My partner is Australian by birth and I'm from a low risk country. By the time of lodging the application we have been living together for 9 months in total (6 months in my home country, then 4 months apart and then 3 months in Australia) but we got our relationship registered. We started being "de facto" as in living together in February 2013 (met in late 2012).

Good luck to all of you with your visas, hopefully there will be a few more grants shortly :)

Its July!!Hope to see new grants soon :))

Bay56 07-01-2014 06:54 AM

Good luck to everyone, especially to those waiting for a while end expecting grants soon :). I just find it weird how my Bridging Visa has not being granted yet. I called Immigration yesterday and they said it's being granted but it takes up to 10 days to be mailed to me, which is different than what happened with most of the other applicants.

I applied by paper on Thursday n havent got my bridging now. When did u apply ?

CollegeGirl 07-01-2014 08:42 AM

You get emailed a Bridging Visa the same day or next day when you apply online, generally. When you apply by paper it usually takes 10 days to two weeks, I believe.

Samanthayang 07-01-2014 10:36 AM

My husband just got a Bridging visa which doesnt alliw him to work n travel ?
Feel so bad :( what should we do now ? The agent said we can apply for work permit but anyone knows how long does it take??
