Default Currently on Biridging Visa; Employer Sponsoring for 482 soon. Need Advice

Hi Everyone,

Iím in a bit of dilemma and need assistance in case someone has gone through a similar scenario. Help would be deeply appreciated..

A bit of background:

My 485 expired in may and my wife took up Masters by Research. Due to COVID, we still haven't give our medical(booked for 30 July). So we are on bridging visa till our student visa is assessed.

Now, my employer will be sponsoring me once my two years at work is complete(26th July 2020). My paper work for 482 visa should be submitted by 27th July.

My queries;
1. Once 482 is lodged, what happens to our bridging visa? Iím asking this cuz we need to pay the second installment of Uni fees by 4th August.. can I avoid it and not face any consequences?

2. We have currently paid health insurance for 2 years as a requirement for student visa. After I lodge my 482, do I need to pay double insurance?

Hi

My suggestion would be go for direct ENS next year and as of now, stick to student visa else you will shell more money for 482.

Btw, that's my opinion.

Thanks

1. I believe you are on a Bridging Visa A now. When you apply for 482, since you are not on a substantive visa, you will be issued with a Bridging Visa C which is fine the only problem is that you cannot travel outside Australia. Once your 482 is lodged, you can withdraw your student visa(I'm sure but please get advice from a professional).
2. You have taken OSHC for your studies, and you need to take Ovhc insurance if you are on a work visa. But don't worry, once you get 482 visa, you apply for a refund from your insurance provider by attaching a copy of your 482 visa. If you apply for refund within 60 days of taking the Oshc, you will get a full refund otherwise they will deduct a minimal amount from it and refund the rest to you.
