Please help - Partner Visa in, questions RE Bridging Visa and job opportunities

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


Thanks for reading.


My British partner and I applied for our partner visa in May 2014. He is currently on a 457 visa which expiers this December 2014.


He is currently employed with a stable job however we want to cover all bases of information in the event the worst case scenario were to happen.


If, in the odd event he had to apply for a new job before December, do you know if that new employer would have to sponsor him?


Also, if he applied for a new job once the bridging visa kicks in after Dec 14, would they too have to sponsor him?


Finding it hard to find all information.


Any help would be so greatly appreciated!


Many thanks

While he's on his 457, he has to comply with the conditions of that visa so that means only working for an employer who has successfully nominated him for a visa. After his 457 expires, he will then move onto the Bridging Visa (I assume it's a BVA) until his partner visa is granted. Under the BVA he has full work entitlement so can work in any job for any employer.
