Partner visa 820 question

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Asking for a friend... 

Current situation; he is on a 2 year 457 which expires in around 3 months time. He has been in a relationship with a AUS citizen for about 18 months and they want to live here.

Question I have- If he submits the 820 visa application (lets say in the next couple of days) does he immediately get a bridging visa, or does the bridging visa take effect when his 457 comes to an end? If so, what is his working rights? this part is a bit confusing and I can't seem to find a clear answer. 

Am i correct in saying the 820 takes around 2 years to come through then the 801 is after that?

thanks

The bridging visa will kick in when the 457 expires and will have work rights. The 820 could easily take 2 years at the moment.

Being in a relationship won't necessarily be enough for an 820, as it has to be defacto partner, not just boyfriend/girlfriend - have they been living together, sharing bank accounts, bills and expenses, registered their relationship etc?
