Congrats Jen on lodging.

You can absolutely not work until you bridging visa A commences. If you do you have broken the terms of your current visa.

You should be able to apply for a TFN. I am not 100% sure if your visa is checked, you can try and see what happens. My husband's only took a few days to come. Also when you do start a job (after your BVA commences) you have 28 days to provide your employer with your TFN anyway.

It should say on the BVA grant when it comes into effect. My husband's had a date on it.

Hi Mish, Thanks, it is a great feeling to have it finally submitted!

I know I cannot work before the BVA comences but I am planning to start work as soon as it does if possible!
The BVA grant has no start date on it, it just says that it will come into effect when my e-visitor expires. I came into Australia on August 7 so I am assuming November 7th will be the start date of the BVA and I want to start work on that day!!

I'll try for the tfn online before my evisitor is up and see what happens, thanks!

Yeah it will be the end of the 3 months then. You can check vevo around that time and it will tell you what visa you are on.

jenjen 10-22-2014 02:06 AM

did your husband apply for the tax file number wen he got the bridging visa?

Mish 10-22-2014 02:07 AM

He came on a PMV so it had work rights but I know the online application does a check with DIBP database.

Mish 10-22-2014 02:11 AM

I don't think you can apply online though because of your visa but you can try. Otherwise you can go to a tax office shop front to apply via paper or by post and that should hopefully not be an issue.

Hi All. I was asked to go for an onshore medical - I went on October 4th. I've not heard any acknowledgement or anything from DIBP.

Do they send anything or is this normal? Should I be chasing to make sure they've received the relevant info and the application is continuing to proceed?

Mish 10-24-2014 01:44 AM

You will never hear anything about medicals unless there is a problem with them.

Well this must be a good thing then :)

So when would I expect to hear more? On the day my form was received I received acknowledgement of application and approval of Bridging Visa.

The next day I received a request to go for a medical.

If they don't acknowledge receipt of this, then my assumption is that I probably won't hear more until they are near to approval my 820?

Thanks Mish

That is correct you won't hear more until either it is approved, a case officer is assigned or they need more information.
