Hmm, you got lucky then, ive been waiting for a month and haven't heard about who my co is until now, so does everyone else i guess. they gave me 2 receipts (in person) once i handed in my applications. one is the receipt of the payment and the other one is the receipt of the application (there is no name of who my co is, just client number and case number) and bridging visa. went to the immigration a week after to submit some additional documents and i got given a receipt of that applications and went to immigration again yesterday (21-09-2010) to submit my medical check up result and didn't hear a word from them. i was asking for the receipt of my medical check up but he said i don't need one. i am a bit worried that they might lose my medical result but i didn't have the courage to force him to give me one.
but yeah i have no idea who my co is until now.

cheers

Hi,

I was not given the name of my CO, just the name of the guy at the Sydney office that I was able to contact until I was assigned a CO, not that I have found him to be very helpful seeing as he must process so many every day!

Really frustrated with the whole thing, 12 months is now what some people have been told? ! Does anyone know if that means I will not be able to work for my company after 6 months (I was on a whv until I got my Bridging visa)?

A bridging visa usually allows for maintaining the same rights your existing visa has and in fact you will be on your WHV until it expires and it is only then that a bridging visa starts.
If you want to be able to work for the employer for more than six months, you can go to Immi and ask for permission, something in way of support from the employer may help but do not be surprised if you are refused for the whole idea of a WHV is to work a bit while you have a holiday and not to be a fulltime worker.

Check with immi. From what they told me the other day. if you cancel the WHV yourself you get put on a bridging visa E. You can then apply for the conditions to be changed to allow you to work but you have to be suffering financially. only problem is that you cant then apply for a bridgin visa B to allow you to leave the country. if you do leave while on a visa E you can only come back in as a tourist. like i said ask immi this is what they told me but im on a 457 not a WHV

Hey I got told that you can waive the no work restriction if you want to but only if you have financial hardship. I was planning to do it because I'm going crazy if I have to do nothing for 8months or even a year especially then my partner have to make our living him self until then but then they tolf me that I have to get someone else to do assurance of support for me. Then I was thinking about the impact, I don't want them to turn down my visa because they think my partner won't be able to support us financially and I'll become a burden of this country.

Hey All,

An interesting phone call today with Immi, might be worth you phoning too. I was told that I was assigned a case office on 3rd August! News to my ears I told the very friendly lady from Melbourne! I have spoken to them at 3 times since then and have been told that I was still in the queue for a case officer! Not sure what to think now...

Anyone else had a similar experience?
Hannah

Hi, just read at the other post that you got your visa already. Congratulation, you are one of the lucky one. your process was quick like really quick. first you got your co soon after and now you got your visa in less than 2 months. i noticed that there are some other applicants who applying onshore in sydney months ago but didn't even heard back about their case officer until now. just wonder if you have a special case or something. maybe you can share with us so we have a little more ideas of the situation that caused the delay of our visa.

cheers

Hey Guys,

Just thought I'd update you on the Sydney application saga! I have now been waiting coming up to 7 months and still no case officer and have had to put in an application for a Bridging Visa B as I intend to go back home to the UK for Christmas. I rang today Immi today to check where to send this application and was told that it is not certain I will be granted it, I must provide 'compelling' reasons for wanting to travel! I hadn't been told this before and wondered if anyone else has any idea how strict they are? Is going home to see my family at Christmas with my husband compelling enough?! The guy also said that by traveling overseas I will almost certainly cause a delay to processing of my application as it cannot be granted while I am out of the country.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

(A very anxious) Hannabelle

hey, i applied for bridging visa b the other day (like 2 months ago) they gave me 1 month bridging visa b multiple travels and offered 3 months visa but i told her that i am fine with 1 month visa. my reason was that my mom was sick and i wanting to go home,and they didnt ask for any supporting documents or proof (thou i already have all the proofs with me just in case) she granted my visa in less than 5 minutes, no questions asked at all and i was asking about my de facto visa, if its going to effect my visa, and she said, they will contact me should they need me to submit anything or if they need to see me and if i am not mistaken i have 28 days to get back to them.so even if i was overseas when they were trying to contact me, i should be alright.

hope this information helps a little bit

cheers
