Question Converting a subclass 885 application to subclass 485

Hi all,

Quick enquiry - I applied for an onshore 885 skilled independent visa back in January 2009. Is it possible to change the 885 application to a 485 without withdrawing it etc? What is the way to go about doing this?

Thanks

Once you've made an application, it's a bit like it staying put other than moving say from an 885 to an 886 with state sponsorship and a few other exceptions.
You could request a withdrawal but your application fee is still gone so why not apply for the 485 if you're eligible and if that is granted earlier, you'll still have the 885 there waiting to be considered and if it comes up for granting while you're on the 485, then it can be granted and the 486 ceases.
One thing you may want to check with Immi is that I imagine you're currently on a Bridging Visa and if you get a 485 that'll cease and if the 885 is still not granted by the time the 485 ceases, you'd want a Bridging Visa to kick in again, so worth checking with Immi that it will happen.

Wanderer, just in regards to the last enquiry .. one of the conditions of a 485 is that the course should have been completed in the last 6 months. Now, I completed mine about a year and a half ago (in melbourne) and then applied for the 885. What is your opinion? Will the 6 month condition apply?

Cheers

You're outside the six months and ineligible.
That's why I stated

why not apply for the 485 if you're eligible

Applying 885

Hi,
I applied my 485 in july 2010 after finishing my course. to apply 885 with in 6 month of degree completion i have time till 5/1/2011 as my course was completed on 5//7/2010.

I got 7 each in ielts and can now apply 885 subclass. Other requirements are already met. My question is if i apply 885, will it affect my work rights as i am on Bridging visa A (for subclass 485). also i heard that if outcome of 485 comes first other application(ie.885) is ceased automatically.


Please reply.
Thanks

If you apply for the 885, you will still be on a bridging visa and if you get a 485 granted, your 885 visa application will remain.
If you get granted a 885 that will supersede the 485 if it has not ended beforehand.
