    Advise required.

    There is insufficient information on your post to provide any answers or meaningful advice. Your friend should seek professional advice from a Registered Migration Agent as it is not a straightforward matter.
  2. Just for the sake of other people who may be following this thread for information on their own situation, the statement above is not correct. You cannot apply for a bridging visa if your visa is about to expire. You must make a valid onshore application for a substantive visa for a bridging visa to be issued.
  3. If your read your 489 grant letter and check the conditions associated with it, you will understand the limitations of the visa.

    Immigration with 2 wives

    In order for migration requirements to be met, there can be only one ongoing married or de facto relationship. If either party to a married or de facto relationship is involved in another married or de facto relationship, neither party can satisfy the migration definition of spouse.

    Apply onshore 190 visa while holding a tourist visa

    Are you using a Registered Agent? I can only provide generic advice on a Public forum. Without knowing all the details of your case, I cannot provide advice on your specific situation.

    Apply onshore 190 visa while holding a tourist visa

    That does not make much sense as a bridging visa A is granted in association with a valid on shore application. You should not need to apply for it separately as it should have already been granted in association with the onshore application.

    Apply onshore 190 visa while holding a tourist visa

    If a valid subclass 190 visa was lodged while you are onshore, a BVA should be granted on lodgement. Either no 190 has been lodged or there is a system issue (which is not uncommon).

    457 to 820 Partnership visa

    If you are applying as a defacto couple, you will need 12 months of living together unless you have registered your relationship, or special circumstances have forced you to live apart. A bridging visa will not come into play , while your 457 is still valid. If your 457 is cancelled, you will become unlawful and go onto a bridging visa E. This should be avoided. Best to find a new sponsor and transfer your visa. Your Agent does not need to be in the same State unless you want or need a face to face consultation. Your comments show that you have a basic understating of the situation, although advice from a professional would be recommended.

    Waiting time between EOI and ITA on a 190 NSW

    NSW invites depend on many factors and you cannot judge your timeline against someone with different details. My last NSW application (last week) took 3 days to receive an invite.

    Motor Mechanic registration/licensing

    ANZSCO states that for this occupation licencing may be required. The case officer will not know all the licencing requirements for every occupation, in every State, in every circumstance. As such, if evidence is not provided detailing the need for or against the need for a licence, they will either refuse the application or request further documents. It may be the case officers opinion that licencing is required and it is your Agent's job to prove that it is not. Your employer should be well placed to advise in regards to licencing requirements.

    Motor Mechanic registration/licensing

    Registration requirements vary between States and even depending on the type of mechanical work being undertaken. You have stated in your other posts that you have a Migration Agent. You would be best advised to obtain answers to your questions from them, as they know the details of your particular case.
  14. It will depend on exactly what sort of mechanical work you are doing and then research with the relevant State licencing authority world be required.

    The role of a migration agent

    In my opinion, the high refusal rate has been caused by a combination of factors including, increased scrutiny by the Department, fraud, applications not meeting requirements, badly presented applications, lack of documentation and harsh decisions by the Department. A reputable Registered Migration Agent will at least tell you if it is a strong case and how best to present the facts. If lodging an offshore DE application, you need to present a very strong case that the position is necessary and genuine, due to the long processing times.
