[Expert Tip] Buying Time with Bridging Visas: Clever but Tricky


As some of you already know, getting bridging visas can be a great way to “buy more time” to stay in Australia while you prepare for your skilled migration/partner visa application.

However, beware of this 1 trap. Legislation you might not have known about is ‘Schedule 3’, that you may not be able to lodge another visa application while you’re on the bridging visa, without demonstrating compassionate and compelling circumstances.

Important tip: Schedule 3 does not apply if you are on a bridging visa for less than 28 days.
