Reet posted a topic in Visa's and MigrationHi, We had applied 887 visa in December 2018.our 489 visa is expiring soon and we have got bridging visa after expiry.Can we move to city on bridging visa or we still need to fulfill conditions of 489 visa? I know few agents and all of them give mixed suggestions. My husband is the main applicant for 887 and has fulfilled the condition however I was wrongly adviced by agents and have worked in city for few months.I left job soon after realizing that I might be breaching visa by working in city.This information was declared on form 80 in the 887 application submitted. I hope we get through as we have always done the right thing since we are in Australia. Anyone had similar experiences please? Your suggestions will be much appreciated.
Hello, I have a few questions about the repercussions of cancelling my current visa status... From what I’ve read by cancelling my current visa it will also cancel the bridging visa I have in effect, there fore I will be unlawfully in the country... if I immediately apply for bridging visa E, how long will this take to come into affect? I’m concerned with the time of year this wouldnt be actioned before Friday 20th December and imagine the department will be closed until the new year... I’ve considered travelling overseas to action the cancelation but then believe I won’t be able to receive a bridging visa without being the country, and also by cancelling a visa it can cause issues coming into the country in the future... Would love to hear any advice if anyone has canceled a visa before?
Guest posted a topic in Visa's and MigrationHi all, In a bit of a pickle here. Myself (permanent resident) and partner from UK are applying for the DeFacto visa. It was lodged back in June 2011 and still waiting to hear back. I understand that it can take approx. 12 months until we hear anything, but during that wait my partner's work restrictions will mean that he has to quit his job and find a new one in March 2012. (He has the same work rights as the working holiday visa which he was on before - now on a bridging visa). The issue is that we have a baby due in May 2012 and really can't be messing around trying to find new work and risking no income during the process - it took us ages to find a permanent job for him; he is now a manager at a landscaping company with a good income, company car and best of all he loves his job! I can't bare to think how difficult life would be if he had to give up his job because of the work restrictions, especially with our first baby on the way. Is there anything we can do to stop this happening? I've come across form 1005, but that only seems to be for financial hardship (which I have no idea if we qualify for) and if the person has been sponsored for employment associated with some other visa types. Really really need some advice before I start pulling my hair out! Any ideas??? Thanks in advance, Kirsty
