Work while waiting for getting approved?

Hello!
I am going to apply for a de facto visa from insideŽAustralia.
I dont know where I thought I would have read it, but I thought I was allowed to work while I am waiting for the visa being approved.
Now I cant find any information about that anymore.
Is that true? Can I work while waiting?

I found the information I was looking for.
I will get a bridging visa which will have the same conditions as the visa Ill currently be on (which will be a visitor visa, I used my WHV already).
I also read that I could
get a special permission to work, but Ild need to proof that Im in a financial hardship which I dont think Ill be, since I will have free accomodation.

Still Ild like to be able to work (legally...) I dont want to sit there doing nothing for 3,4,5, maybe more??? months.

Is there another way?

We will be living for one year In NZL btw, me on the WHV and he as an Australian is allowed to work and live there anyway.

So are you now deciding to put your application in onshore and then leaving to go and work in NZ?

Anyway, having free accommodation may not necessarily stop you getting permission to work and if you have some supportive info about your sponsor's income and your joint expenses, you may still be able to put up a case for financial hardship.
No harm in doing so and it'll not cost you anything.
One person posted recently on having success with getting permission.

Hi Wanderer,
sorry I was panicing last night haha, and so not explaining the situation.
So at the moment he is in australia, I am in Germany. Soon were going to NZL to live together for one year.
Then- thats the plan- we go to australia and apply onshore and waaaait.

But then I have an other question. After one year in NZL Ill have to enter Australia on a Visitor visa- and apply for the partner visa. Is that even allowed? When you read about the Visitor Visa, they say your main reason has to be holiday and NOT staying for longer. Can I get into trouble applying onshore when Im on a visitor visa?

And one more question- My partner was travelling a lot- to visit me and all around europe. So by the time we are applying he will have payslips of the last one and a half years but not longer before since he was traveling. Do you think that might be a serious problem?

It's not illegal to apply for another visa whilst being on a tourist visa but you're right it's a bit dodgy as your reason is not to stay for a holiday,it is to apply for a defacto visa...

Have you thought about applying offshore from NZ...?You might even be lucky and it gets processed quicker than in Australia!

About the payslips,I think it is important that your sponsor is in (solid) employment at the time you apply (if his income is below around 30k/year immi might ask for an Assurance of support) but it shouldn't be a problem that he travelled (to see you!) months and months before you lodge the application!Just write a short statement about it,explain the situation and include it in your application.

Hope that helps
all the best

When you decide on returning to Australia from NZ, you ought to do so with an ETA as some tourist visas can have a No Further Stay condition on them even though it seems eVisas are now often being granted with conditions like the ETA and being questioned on entry is a possibility but not so probable on a first entry.

If you are entering to revisit Australia and do some travelling with a friend, that is fine and if the question of a further visa did come up, that is perhaps something that you may be considering in the future is a reasonable approach rather than it being a definitive plan.

When it comes to a partner application Immi will look at the total picture of you and your sponsor re recent employment and employability/finances when it comes to determining if they would seek an AoS.

With the application, try and keep it clear and crisp and whereas there is provision for how/where you met, that sort of thing to also be mentioned briefly in your statements it is best to expand on details if required in an interview rather than have too much in a statement.

Okay Thanks.
I thought of applying from NZL,but
- Im just allowed there for for one year (if I dont do some fruitpicking or stuff like that) so even if I apply on the last day it wouldnt be 12 month we have an defacto relationship together, depending on when we get a flat/bank . It would be maybe a week less.
and then Ild have to go back to NZL to get it approved right?

Ill rather go and try for the work permit.


Thanks a lot!

//Ive read something about this assurence of support- what exactly is it?
