Visa 461 (Partner, NZ) and Working Rights while on Bridging Visa
VicentJ posted a topic in Family / Partner VisasHello, As the de-facto partner of a NZ citizen residing in Australia, I am considering to start an application for a 461(New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship) visa. I am concerned about the very lengthy period (two years) it takes to be approved. I understand that I will get a bridging visa during this period. Will I have work rights while on this bridging visa? Also, Immi website says that if I apply from Australia I have to be in Australia when they make their decision. What happens if I leave Australia while the visa is being processed? Is the process cancelled? Thanks!
