@SpaintoAus have you checked this out with with a migration agent?? Please please be careful that you are remaining lawful. The bridging visa usually carries the same working rights as that visa you have been on (the expiring one) NOT the one you have applied for.

That's what I always understood but apparently it's not always the case.

as I’m sure everyone is aware, immigration are known to visit these forums and although it’s a long old wait, it’s worth the advice just to be sure you’re not scuppering your whole future.

I called the immigration department and spoke to them directly about the conditions and they told me it was all good. 🙂

@SpaintoAus they’ve been known to sometimes not give accurate info (read through these forums)

Great news if it’s all good (it’s not impossible!)  but I’d be going all belts and braces if it were me- there’s no recourse on a conversation you may have had with them which may have given you incorrect info.

Please please check it out with a registered agent.  It is virtually unheard of to get a Bridging Visa in the situation you describe and for that reason I would be very careful about the working rights. When bridging from tourist to 820/801 you would get working rights, but bridging from tourist to 309/100 is not going to be as clear cut

Hi All, please could I ask what travel insurance people got when moving abroad? I’ve looked at one way travel insurance but it says it’s not suitable for expats. I just need it to cover me for the flight over. Thanks in advance.

Hi Larnie, for one way we’ve always used Covermore (we only needed insurance for the actual journey & luggage though)

does anyone who applied last year have any updates on their progress. Applied earlier this week and would be nice to keep track of how long they are roughly taking?

Applied 28th Jan 2019 from London, RFI 5th December 2019, Medical / Police check early December as we were thinking they’d be requested for in December anyways :)!  🤞🏻 fingers crossed we will hear by the end of Jan! Might be being over hopeful though!

Updated excel sheet updated.  I have tried to keep updated but if you have any details you wish added just tag me and I can enter as its a lot to read through.

I have just booked flights back to the UK, my visa expires on the 15 January so it was a case of taking ownership or sitting right to the wire making myself sick waiting and wondering.  I am gutted to be going home so soon but that's the gamble we took.  I just cant see why the approvals are taking so long for some of us, its a really frustrating process and its a faceless service unless you have an agent which we didn't think we would need with a straight forward application.  

Good luck everyone for this week as the offices should be open after the Christmas break.

Oh no :( that’s so frustrating. What are your circumstances? I applied for a 600 before Xmas and got 12 months. I wonder why there can be such a stark difference:(
