6 month working limitation wavier once on a bridging visa

Has anyone had any experience with getting the 6 month working limitation wavier once they were on a bridging visa?
My wife came to Australia on a 462 WHV and we got married so we are about to put in for a temp partner visa. She is an American.
I know there is a forum to fill out, but has anyone had any luck getting it waivered so she can work longer then 6 months for the same employer while the temp parter visa is being processed?

I have the exact same question. My Wife is over here on a WHV & we are about to apply for her temporary partner visa. She currently has a stable job, but the 6 months runs out in October.

Is there anyway she can get an extension?

Hi there!!

I'm not too sure on the waiving of the limitation, someone else should be able to help you on that. However, once you put in the application you will get a bridging visa when the WHV comes to an end and although you keep the six month work limitation, it kind of resets itself meaning your wife can work for an employer she previously worked for on the WHV.

Hope this is of some help!!

I called immigration on this (I came over on a WHV too), and you can do 6 months for an employer per visa - so if you work for 6 months on the 1st WHV, you can return for anohter 6 months on the 2nd WHV, and it works the same for the Bridging Visa A, it counts like a 3rd WHV, so when the Bridging Visa kicks in you can go back for another 6 months. I'm now back working for an old employer as I'm on the Bridging Visa A, but that 6 months runs out in October, and with the long processing times it looks like I'm going to have to leave again. Driving me crazy, I live in a small town, there aren't that many options!

If you have any luck on getting a waiver please let me know - it'd certainly make life much easier!
