820 to 857

Just wondering if you can apply for an 857 RSMS visa while on an 820 visa.

I looked on the DIAC website at the qualifying visa list, but what is the Family Relationship (Temporary) Class TL?

What sponsorship visas can you apply for on the 820 if your relationship dissolves? Are there any onshore visa options while on the 820?

Someone please help!

thanks...

The Family Relationship (Temporary) Class TL? is apparently something of a rareity amongst Qualifying visas and not in your normal parcel of family visas.
With an 820 visa, depending on how long and the circumstances of a relationship ceasing there may still be a chance of an applicant proceeding to get PR and you should contact Immi about that situation.
I would think that if you can find an employer to sponsor you and eligibility is met by all, then the 457 visa in the first instance may be more appropriate to apply for.

Thanks for the quick reply yet again Wanderer.

I'm not eligible for the 457 because the federal award I am paid on is less than the current TSMIT. All other eligibility is met aside from this... So I think the only employer sponsorship I am eligible for is the 857 and yes I am in regional australia.

Could you shed some light on this phrase from the immi website:

The offshore RSMS (subclass 119) visa is for applicants who are outside Australia.
Note: Applicants who do not hold a qualifying visa can apply for the offshore RSMS visa (subclass 119) and lodge their application in Australia. However, applicants must be outside Australia at the time of visa grant.

Does this mean that I can apply while on-shore, work for roughly another 4.5 months after lodging the application (processing time for this visa is 5 months based on the DIAC's service charter) go home for a visit for 2 weeks, await approval and come back?

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks again.

As a general rule there are some offshore visas that you can apply for while in Australia as it says but then for one to be granted you do need to be offshore.

As for working until that is processed, that is another situation for if your relationship has ceased, that should be notified to Immi and they will likely advise you on leaving Australia or getting another visa.
By applying for an offshore visa there is no bridging visa applicable.

Thanks for clarifying Wanderer, just trying to understand all of my options. You've absolutely cleared this one for me.
