    RRV and Partner Visa

    Does she hold the temporary or the PR partner visa? If she has the temporary one, she will remain on that until she gets the PR one. If she's in Australia and holds the PR visa such as 100 or 801 visa, then she doesn't need an RRV if she doesn't plan to leave Australia and if the travel rights are still valid. However if the travel rights expire and she wants to be able to leave Australia (and then re-enter), she would need to get an RRV.

    Kids Passports

    AFAIK, if they are citizens then they are not eligible for a visitor visa.

    Are we coming out of isolation too soon?

    The topic is are we coming out of isolation too soon. If you want to debate the views on commemorating slave trading, that should be moved to a new thread.

    Visa from 417 while waiting for applying for 491

    I assume your options are limited to perhaps a visitor visa. However the fact that you're finishing a working holiday visa, getting a visitor visa immediately after may be difficult.

    Are you downloading COVIDSafe app ?

    Already done. Given the very minimal information needed to enter, I don't see an issue with it.

    Can I study on a 482 Visa

    Your visa grant notice will list any limitations on what you can do.

    New rules for partner points

    It may be worthwhile in the long run to include her in your application. She would be eligible for more government benefits as a PR holder than she is as a NZ citizen. However to answer your question, AFAIK you cannot claim partner points unless you include her in your application regardless of whether she wants the visa or not.

    Never known such happiness

    I doubt anyone would say any of the positive results are worth the cost, but it's still good to see that even a global pandemic has brought out some good things.

    Use for Cruise ships out of service

    I haven't been on a cruise ship but they may have the same issue as hotels - I heard a news report saying hotels are often inappropriate because too much carpeting makes them difficult to keep clean enough for medical purposes.

    Visitor visa 600: Length of Stay waiver Covid

    AFAIK, Immigration is more concerned about people keeping to the conditions of their visas vs. whether they're nervous of being exposed to the virus at the airport or on a flight. If they were unable to leave because they became too ill to travel, then I believe that's considered a valid reason to waive a No Further Stay condition and apply for a medical care visa. But if it's simply a matter of their visitor visa period expiring, then they need to leave Australia to avoid an overstay.

    Skillselect ENS 186 Timeline

    It happens sometimes, not sure if they can't see the document or simply overlook it. Best is to politely reply that you'd provided the document earlier but in case it's not visible in their system you are sending/uploading a fresh copy.

    Bridging visa A cancelled Help

    If you Google "Apply to have bridging visa reinstated" it should direct you to form 1005.
  13. AFAIK they assess the application based on the criteria at the time the application was lodged.

    457 questions (Yes that old visa)

    I assume your case officer would contact you via email requesting new police checks and you could then provide them by return email (if the status on your Immiaccount doesn't get changed back to "processing" which would I think allow you to upload documents). My company has had 457 visas granted that extended beyond the duration of the company sponsorship.

    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    I know this part of the topic goes back a couple of weeks but I was curious about this. From what's written in the legislation, I understand it to mean: - the parent is eligible for the 143 visa if they have a child who is a settled Australian citizen/AU PR holder/eligible NZ citizen. (143.211) - the parent can be sponsored for the 143 visa by the child, the child's partner, the child's guardian, an organisation (depending on the age/situation of the child). (143.212) However if they've been told by a registered migration agent that they are eligible to apply before their daughter gets her PR visa, perhaps there is some precedent for this.
