Bridging Visa E

I was previously granted a bridging visa E intended to depart, but the changed in my circumstances made me eligible to apply for a partner visa onshore. However, I still remain on the bridging visa E. The purpose of the bridging visa was base on departure grounds which is no longer the case. Can I apply to change the BVE to another bridging visa?

Very unlikely. Generally you're only eligible for one of the better bridging visas if you hold a substantive visa when you apply for the partner visa - and you didn't, unfortunately.

We had a similar circumstances, my partner and I were advised that there is nothing in the regulations that allow for an application to change from E Bridging visa.
We have since applied for 820/801. Had the no work restriction lifted but that's as far as we can go until a decision is made on the 820/801.

Sorry to say you are very likely stuck on E visa until the decision is made about your other application.
Be aware that if your partner leaves Australia they will be unable to return for 3 years as there is a mandatory 3 year exclusion for overstaying the original visa

Not sure about Medicare, but it is possible to apply to have the work restrictions waived citing financial hardship if not allowed to work.

Is your BVE on departure grounds? If it is you wouldn't be able to apply for a Medicare card. If you have applied for an onshore partner visa and you remain on BVE you may be able to apply for Medicare. I currently have Medicare and full working and study rights. Hope it all work out for you.

i have a BVE before applying for partner visa, now i hold on a BVE on partner visa. will i need to show my own financial hardship? or i also have to show the sponsor (my partner) financial hardship? honestly, i am in financial hardship without my partner's support.

You will need to show hardship from your partners and your situation, immi told us they expect partners to look after applicants, kinda a strange when you think that many many people in this country can not live on a single income

So you will need to do a budget with both peoples expenses and your partners income
