    Citizenship advice

    Thanks for your reply wrussell. Would you think that the bridging visa E was a valid visa to contribute to my 4 year lawful requirement? Do you think this would affect my processing?

    Citizenship advice

    Hello, I am currently wondering what my best option is. I am a permanent resident which was granted on 19.07.2016 however before this I was granted a bridging visa E on the 17.12.2015 after voluntarily cancelling my student visa to pursue my PR through 187. Now I’m under the impression I am eligible for citizenship since 17.12.2019, 4 years after becoming lawful again on my bridging visa E or should I wait until it’s been 4 years since my PR was granted? I would be so grateful for anyone’s opinion. I am also looking to legally change my surname and not sure if this will effect my citizenship application? Thanks in advance

    Relationship breakdown after PR immiaccount

    Yeah I get what you’re saying. I meant change his email address to his personal one as I think they are both set as mine hence why I’m receiving his update notifications?

    Relationship breakdown after PR immiaccount

    Yes I will do it independently. He is now a permanent resident as per our 187 visa we did with me as the main applicant?
  6. Hey everyone, You all helped me so much as I anxiously waited for my PR a few years ago. After nearly a year on my 187 PR the partner who I sponsored through this visa and I broke up. We are not on good terms. I’m wondering if when I complete my citizenship independently will this create my own individual immi account or will my immi account be removed altogether? Please help as sharing an immi account creates unnecessary communication which gives me anxiety

    187 2 year requirement

    No because I haven't done a year as a resident. I was told on here that as I was unlawful regardless of how long, in my case 2 hours or so, that restarts the 4 year requirement.

    187 2 year requirement

    Still sticking it out. 6 months will be completed this week. Another girl working with me that hasn't even received her grant yet. I feel for her too. Things are slightly better. Visited family back home after 5 years without seeing them. Finally got my drivers licence. Anyone else counting down their two years??

    Changing from 457 sponsored to a student visa

    Changing from 457 sponsored to a student visa

    <p> it was quite the bummer. tbh it took contacting the student visa processing centre two months later once I actually realised my bridging visa wasn't in effect(read the bridging visa grant letter after wondering why it was taking so long to hear back) who then contacted the correct department who first contacted me by phone. My ex partner was also in contact with them sending various emails but nothing ever happened just kept fobbing him off to another email address. no I think it must be done by email as they then have to send you an intention to cancel notice which you have a choice to respond to. the only impact is seems to have made is resetting my clock for citizenship. I went on to cancel that student visa so I could move and begin work for my permanent visa sponsor. It has been a complicated road. if you call they will give you the right email to contact don't think I can post it on here</p>

    Changing from 457 sponsored to a student visa

    It also took a lot of requests for it to be cancelled they didn't just automatically do it. it was a lot of persistence on my part

    Changing from 457 sponsored to a student visa

    <p> If your 457 is cancelled you will become illegal whether you want to or not. i was on a 457 as defacto, as we split I lodged a student visa and also informed Immi of my request to cancel my 457. My bridging visa wasn't in effect as my 457 still was and my student visa was unable to be processed because of my 457 still being current I was told. Once my 457 was cancelled so was my bridging visa leaving me illegal with no other option than a bridging visa E. I was lucky to get work rights as I wasn't doing anything wrong just cancelling my visa due to a relationship breakdown however I had no travel right or option to apply for another visa if my student visa was denied. I think the only options are Aussie partner visa, medical treatment visa or asylum visa none of which I was eligible for. Luckily once my 457 was cancelled around three weeks later my student visa was granted. Just thought I would share how it worked for me</p>
