Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi all, Currently applying for a Partner Visa. My partner was offered to relocate back to Sydney with a major bank. As my job was floundering we decided to grab the opportunity. I arrived in Australia in March 2011 on a 3 month tourist Visa then submitted my application (subclass 820) in Sydney around the 10th of that month. I received an email acknowledgement the money had been taken and they were starting the process. **Would arriving on a visitor visa and then applying for the partner visa straight away work negatively against me?** As yet I haven't had any further correspondence, only to confirm a change of address (Which I had to chase). As I understand the average waiting time is now around 9 months, something I hadn't originally anticipated. I have enquired about working on the Bridging Visa I am now on. I have emailed twice but not had anything back **Can anyone tell me the conditions on working on a Bridging Visa, as they appear to be a bit vague on the forms I have read. It just uses the language "Under exceptional circumstances". (I would have thought 9 months out of work for anyone would have been exceptional circumstances).** Currently one salary is supporting us, we are housesitting so no rent. There will be a time soon when we will have to find somewhere to rent. I have savings in the UK and Singapore so I guess any decision on allowing me to work is based on this? My savings are for a house deposit though. I'd be happy to pick up some work to tied me over. Any advice would be much appreciated. Regards,
