Taking partner - 820 via 651

Recommended Posts

Hello hello,

I'm an Irish / Australian who left Sydney 11 months ago to try life back in Dublin with my Belgian partner of 3 years. 

We met 3 years ago in Sydney while she was on her working holiday visa.

We've both decided we'd like to go back, but aren't fussed waiting ~17 months for the offshore visa.

My question is: if we went to Sydney on a 651 and made the onshore 820 application - her 651 visa would expire in 3 months & she'd go on a Bridging Visa A - would she have any work rights on this visa, or would it be a continuation of the 651 work rights (i.e none).

Much thanks PIO 👍

He's telling the truth, as borne out by many many posts on here and the experience of many posters.  If one applies for a 820/801 then as soon as the Bridging Visa kicks in one gets full working rights.

So just to be 100% - 

 

- we apply for tourist visa (651)

- fly in 1week

- submit 820 once onshore 

- once tourist visa expires (3 months) BVA kicks in - and my partner has full work rights? 

 

Thanks so so much everyone,

David

Correct. Just one thing to be aware of. 

On entering Australia, if immigration don't believe her to be a genuine tourist, they can refuse entry
