Want to resign on a 457, options?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm on a 457 visa since September 2017 and my work is becoming intolerable to the extent where I want to resign every day.

My partner is Australian and we have been together for 6 years, having moved last year. We chose the 457 option due to costs involved in the partner visa, as well as it taking longer to be granted.

We would like to move to a partner visa now, however my understanding is that if I apply, any bridging visa would get annulled if I resign from my job - is this correct?

What would happen if I resign from my job and THEN apply for a partner visa? Can I do this onshore on say, a tourist visa? How likely would I be granted a bridging visa in this case?

My other option is to transfer to another job which is what I am working on at the moment. However now that we have some savings and we know that we like our life here, the freedom of a partner visa would be preferred if there's a way to do that!

Thanks in advance!

Good advice. Your situation is too involved for a generic public forum.
