bridging visa

Recommended Posts

Guest rmlx26

Please can someone help us, my friend is here on a tourist visa 976 and wants to stay and apply for onshore last remaining relative visa. We know on the tourist visa her child can go to school for 3 months, what happens if she applies for a bridging visa, can the child go to school continually whilst waiting for permanent visa

 

Thanks

I would think school would be the least of her worries. The LRR has waiting times of up to and over a decade. Any bridging visa she gets will have the same work rights as her current visa, i.e. none... She'd also not be able to leave the country except for an emergency during that ten years. And would have to stay single, otherwise she won't be eligible for it any more.

 

What is her occupation? She might be able to get a skilled visa (RSMS is the one that requires the least level of skills provided she doesn't mind living in a Regional area). It would probably be faster for her to retrain and apply for a skilled visa.

 

I would recommend talking to a migration agent, the LRR really is a last resort visa, and there might be another option for her.
