I'm brand new to this forum and have decided to join in and post after a friend recommended it to me.

I was hoping I could get a little guidance as I didn't find the Gov Immi helpline very helpful.

I'm from the UK and currently on a Working Holiday Visa (first year). My partner (Australian) and I have been together for almost 2 1/2 years and we are currently looking at applying for a De Facto partner visa.

I am currently working at a great company that would like to offer me a full time role. However, I have heard that the bridging visa mirrors your current working restrictions. My current visa only allows me to work at one company for no more than 6 months and I have found it incredibly hard to find jobs and stability.

My questions are
- Whether anybody else is in/has been in a similar situation
- If anyone knows of any way around this or what I can do so I can work without restrictions?

Having to do potentially almost 2 1/2 years of temp jobs is really deterring me from applying. It doesn't seem like a sustainable condition for any applicant.

My visa expires soon and my partner and I are completely new to this process.

Thanks in advance for any answers!
The Immigration help line is unfortunately not a good source of information as this isn't what they're trained for.

If you lodge your onshore partner visa, you will be granted a bridging visa A which will give you unrestricted work rights (this is always the case when applying for a partner visa). If you haven't yet reached the 6-month limit with your employer, you could simply continue working once the bridging visa takes effect. If you will reach the 6-month limit before your WHV expires, you could submit a completed form 1445 (https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/form...forms/1445.pdf) and ask that they lift the 6-month limitation. From what I've heard, they are usually pretty agreeable to this and it's listed as one of the "exceptional situations" where it's possible for them to lift the 6-month limitation.

Good luck!

What Maggie said is correct. You can read for yourself as the information is available online for free:

Migration Regulations: 010.611 and IMMI 12/094.

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to update on our situation (and hopefully be a source of hope for those who, like me, applied for their 820 after having gone through the 300 first)

Applied offshore for PMV: May 2018 (London)
PMV granted: November 2018 (London)

Got married: March 2019

Applied for 820 (as per requirement of PMV): June 10th 2019
820 granted: June 12th 2019

For my 820 I wasn’t requested to do my police checks or medical again. My partner didn’t have to do her Australian police check again either. All we did was upload our marriage certificate and some other evidence
