457 -> 186 TRT Grandfather Question

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys 

I would love if a MA would answer the following question for me. 
 

Applied 457 2016 (way before the rules changed) Eventually granted in March 2020 

 

My question is, the time I spent on a Bridging VISA from 2016 - 2020 can this be used to satisfy the requirement for work experience as per this it seems so but I just don’t know? 
 

Held or had applied for a 457 Visa prior to 18 April 2017 (which was subsequently approved).

Any occupation, provided it is the same occupation as your existing 457 or TSS Visa (even if it is no longer on an approved list).

2 years of employment as a 457 or TSS Visa holder (or associated bridging visa), in your nominated occupation with your sponsor, within the 3 years leading up to the lodgment of the application.


I’d prefer good news that it will and I can lodge the 186 without waiting until March 2022 

Thanks Guys 

 

Sam

You may want to post in the correct section as you have posted in the Business Visa Section.

In answer to your question, it will depend what visa you were bridging from.

Urrgh, thats what I thought... Originally it was a 417 so its a a long wait for me then as I read the legislation and seems needs to be 457-BV-457 for example if I understand correctly. 

Aplogise for the wrong section, it was pretty late ;-) 

Thanks  Raul
