    187 and bridging visas

    Raul, is a bridging visa an option then? Our employer is very keen to sponsor but they can't wait which is fair enough. I am planning on using a migration agent to sort it all but before I start laying out huge amounts of money I would like to know if it's a none starter or a genuine option. I have done so much reading but it's just not clear either way

    187 and bridging visas

    Thanks for the reply Ali. No she hasn't done the skills assessment yet but we have all the documents and evidence ready to go when we need it. The company haven't sponsored before but have looked at what they need to do as an employer, it looks like they should meet the criteria.
  3. Hi all Myself and wife are looking at emigrating from the UK to Australia and for our skills and age the only real option is a 187 visa. She has an employer who is really interested in sponsoring her which is great, but they are concerned by the potential 22 month wait for the visa to be granted if we get through all of the other stages. Having done some reading into Bridging visas it not really clear as to whether we could apply for the 187, get a bridging visa and move out there to work for the company while we wait for a decision. I appreciate that's a huge gamble as it might not be granted, but I'm struggling to see why companies would even entertain such a visa if they had to wait almost 2 years for their employee to be ready to start. Any advice would be appreciated
