    Apply for Student Visa on Bridging Visa B?

    I’ve heard of people switching from one visa to a student visa though? Or is that only if they are already on a visa that isn’t a bridging visa? I.e I should have applied before withdrawing?
  2. Hi Guys I've just been moved to a Bridging Visa B after withdrawing my partner visa application and was looking to apply for a student visa to remain in Australia. Are there any limitations to applying for a new visa while on a Bridging Visa? There's nothing noting as such in the grant letter, I just imagine that if I apply now I will move to another Bridging Visa until a decision is made on the Student Visa - does that make sense? Thanks

    Asking for an extension before visa is cancelled

    Thanks Paul. Does the bridging visa maintain my working rights in most cases?
  4. Hi guys I’m currently on a partner visa (temporary at the moment) and my relationship has broken down and the government have been notified. I have until mid January to reply to them, but I was wondering what flexibility they offer in terms allowing a visa to stay in place, or grant a bridging visa with work rights, until I am able to secure relocation to another country with my current employer? My plan is to leave early Feb so would it be reasonable for me to ask them to extend my work rights until say 5th February until I am able to iron out all the details and approvals etc? Thank you

    Applying for a partner visa twice

    That was exactly my concern, so I’m thinking of heading down the employer visa first which will allow me to stay temporarily for 2-4 years. She wouldn’t share what she sent, but I assume it is as you said.

    Applying for a partner visa twice

    No of course not, we both agreed that we’d carry on until I got my visa so neither of us are in the right here. I was just hoping to understand what my options might be now. Do I too message them telling them of this breakdown? I don’t know what timeframe she put on it, I wouldn’t imagine she’d have mentioned it was recent to avoid looking bad

    Applying for a partner visa twice

    I’m planning to, only just found out tonight. But is that a possibility? Applying for another partner visa or does that not look good? I’m gonna try for work sponsored visa also
  8. Hi guys So got an interesting case here. I applied for a partner visa with my now ex partner in 2018 and got granted my TR in 2018 and applied for my PR in 2020. Our relationship broke down in that time but we never withdrew the application. My ex partner has now decided to submit a breakdown of relationship so my chances of getting PR granted are slim to none. Is it possible to withdraw this application and apply with my new partner? Or are there restrictions etc in place? Otherwise what would be my options?

    Evisitor 651 re entry question

    Okay so basically if I entered initially in January, stay for 2 months, left for a week holiday and then came back, my visitor visa would last until June?

    Evisitor 651 re entry question

    Hey guys I just have a quick question with regards to the 651 tourist visa. I understand that when you enter with this visa you can stay for up to 3 months at a time. But if I left say after 2 months, went for a short trip to NZ, and then re entered, would it be valid for a further 3 months from when I re enter? Or would it be valid 3 months from initial entry? Thanks

    Financial Evidence

    I don't suppose you know any? I am concerned now that some of the evidence may seem like it was just rushed before the application, and I don't want that to negatively affect our chances.

    Financial Evidence

    I see where you're coming from, and when actually thinking about it you are right. From immigration's view, a lot of the evidence (especially the financial side with bills etc) will only happen once I return on my tourist visa. So when I apply, some of it will only be 3 months old, which wouldn't look very strong. One thing I considered a few months ago was to first go back on a student visa and study for a year. Now I'm thinking that I may go back to that plan. It just seems that that would put us in the same situation as if I went back on a tourist visa, but we'd have a lot more time to accumulate bills and joint statements and possibly even a joint lease. Would this seem like a reasonable idea to you? To me it's only a few extra thousand dollars, which in the long run may actually help us.

    Financial Evidence

    She hasn't, but I was concerned with the fact I would be in Australia on a 3 month Tourist Visa. So I don't know how willing an agency would be to put me on a lease when I could simply leave in 3 months.

    Financial Evidence

    The relationship was registered last December. And we were together for a year in Australia, and we've been apart for around 8 months now. I understand that evidence needs to be provided for at least 1 year prior to application, we will essentially have 2 years worth of different evidence when applying. Anything else we could use?

    Financial Evidence

    Okay, so evidence wise, this is what we have so far: Pictures of us together in social situations/in general as a couple Various letters wrote back and forth to each other. Both in Aus and when apart. Screenshots showing continuous conversation when separated Tickets from events attended together Hotel bookings Flights took together to Melbourne Plane ticket from when I came to visit at the end of last year Letter from super funds showing each other as beneficiary Certificate of relationship registration Obviously once I arrive back, we will have bills and banks statements being sent to the same address for both of us. And possibly a joint bank account set up to pay for shared expenses while living together. I mean I don't know if I have missed anything? I'm sure there may be stuffed I have forgot about.
