Migrate to Australia is a complex process.
At VISA LOUNGE AUSTRALIA, our team of immigration specialists have been consulting individuals and businesses in Australian immigration law for over 14 years and they have answered many questions about how to migrate to Australian covering various Australian temporary visa, Australian permanent residence visa, Australia bridging visa subclasses and bridging visa conditions.
The answer is never simple because the Australian migration legislation and the whole process to migrate to Australia is very complex. The personal circumstances and the immigration history are always different from one individual to another therefore everyone requires customised migration advice.
What if you are in Australia and you want to apply for another visa?
For those who are already in Australia and want to apply for another Australian visa, it is important to note that a bridging visa is not a substantive visa, in plain language, it is a visa that keeps an individual lawful in Australia up until a decision is made on a pending Australian visa application.
In most cases, the bridging visa granted is a bridging visa A which is the most beneficial bridging visa out of the five bridging visas.
The bridging visa A is usually granted based on an application for a temporary or permanent visa while the applicant is in Australia as the holder of a valid temporary visa (for example tourist visa, working holiday visa, student visa).
Generally, the bridging visa A carries the same visa conditions as the visa subclass that the applicant holds at the time when the new visa application is made.
However there may be circumstances when the bridging visa A is free of conditions for example when an individual applies inside Australia for an Australian partner visa subclass 820 as the holder of a tourist visa, student visa or temporary skills shortage sponsored visa TSS subclass 482 skilled work visa.
In this situation, the individual must continue to comply with the temporary visa conditions that he/she holds, up until the date when this visa expires, and the bridging visa A comes into effect.
At that point in time, the individual can study, live, and work in Australia without limitation up until a final decision is made on the Australian partner visa application.
A bridging visa A can also be granted based on an appeal application if the applicant has a visa application refused inside Australia and appeals the decision within the prescribed timeframe at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
Seek professional support to migrate to Australia successfully
It is important to seek professional migration advice from an Australian registered migration agent to fully understand visa conditions and avoid any breach of these conditions. Any visa refusal while an individual is physically in Australia imposes a bar on this individual to make further applications in Australia.
The chances to migrate to Australia permanently are significantly reduced. Therefore, if you find yourself in a complex visa situation, it is highly recommended that you contact a registered migration agent, like VISA LOUNGE AUSTRALIA registered migration specialist in Brisbane, to receive advice on the most suitable migration strategy.
An application for another visa may be possible if the applicant already holds a bridging visa, in this situation, it is extremely important to consult with a registered migration agent or immigration lawyer to ensure that the active bridging visa allows the applicant to make a valid application.
As mentioned above, the most beneficial bridging visa is bridging visa A because it allows an application for other visa subclasses in more cases than the other types of bridging visa.
If the Australian migration legislation allows the visa applicant to lodge a new Australian visa application as the holder of a bridging visa A, in most cases, the next bridging visa granted to the applicant is a bridging visa C which usually comes with a ‘No Travel’ condition.
The bridging visa C remains ‘inactive’ during the period when the bridging visa A is in place.
Some examples of visa subclasses which can be lodged from a bridging visa A in Australia, presuming there is no bar on the applicant, is the popular skilled work TSS 482 temporary skill shortage visa or the permanent subclass 186 employer nomination scheme.
As you can see the Australian immigration legislation is very complex, migrate to Australia is a process that requires a lot of time and preparation.
