Hi Ninja69 -

Hard to say without seeing your paperwork, but if you've lodged an 820/801 application and you do not yet have a decision on that application and are only holding a bridging visa waiting for that decision, then you would not be a holder of a subclass 820 visa (or 801).

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hoping for your immediate response.

****POSITIVE EXPERIENCE FOR MARK****

I just came back from seeing Mark just a few minutes ago and I don't normally give feedback but I would not hesitate to do it right away. I have booked a consultation with Mark in regards to my partner visa and he has been very professional, nice, easy going, helpful and funny too. He is like a therapist as he will ease you down when there is something you are anxious about during the process

Basically, he pretty much answered my questions I was concerned about. Not only that, he would go through the documents and gave me some very important advice that I did not think of and would have gone into trouble had I gone through it myself!!! (Think of it as hiring a lawyer, if he didn't go through with you but by yourself, you could land yourself into a hot water)

Although partner visa has not been started yet but I would like take this chance to say thank you to Mark for helping me out and I will definitely recommend to friends and come back for him later. He is not like other migration agents who talks about business but he cares about you as a customer and in the end, he states that if there are any further questions, I can always email him which is a nice touch.

Guys, I know you have questions to ask him here, but if there are some things if you are unsure of especially more detailed and/or complicated cases, I'd strongly recommend to book an appointment with him in person or by Skype/phone (if you are not in Australia) to go through with him and he will answer more precisely in your case or point out something you should be aware of. Unless you are are asking questions in general terms, then by all means, ask here

Rating: 10/10

He is the best consultant I have dealt with + he answers all questions in the forum, so you can't go wrong and if I have a choice, I would definitely nominate him as the best migration agent here!! So thank you once again! Any questions, do not hesitate to PM me for the experience! Steve

Hi Mark,

I am a PR holder and I am married and my spouse wish to apply for spouse visa.

I am planning to settle in Australia from next January and my husband also plan to apply for visitor visa so he can help me to settle in there. Is there a way to apply for onshore partner visa (820) while he is in visitor visa. I heard about Bridging Visa and will this be helpful to stay in Australia with me while he is applying for onshore partner visa (820). ?

Appreciate your thoughts regarding this.

Hi Dhanu -

Thanks for the question. A person on a visitor visa can lodge an onshore partner visa application as long as that visitor visa does not have condition 8503 (no further stay) listed on it - that condition prevents further onshore applications while here on that visa unless a waiver is granted (difficult to get). If the visitor lodges a partner visa while here on a visitor visa, a bridging visa is normally granted shortly after lodgement that allows the person to remain in Australia past the expiry of the visitor visa (or past the current maximum "stay" period - ie, 3 month maximum stay, etc if the visa is configured that way). There are other issues that come into play with a bridging visa, so you'll want to make sure you learn all about them if you're looking at doing this, but essentially the bridging visa allows the person to remain in Australia until a decision is made on the onshore partner visa application.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Dhanu -

Wish I could help with this, but it's completely discretionary at the choice of the case officer who assess the application. Generally higher risk applicants have an increased chance of condition 8503, but beyond that it's very hard to predict since so much depends on the case officer's opinion of the case.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
