I'm currently on a second working holiday 417 visa, and can no longer legally work for my employer due to the 6 month restrictions on the visa.
We have lodged the application for 186 Permanent Residency via Direct Entry.
Im aware I can ask for an extension using form 1445 but can't figure out who or where to send the forms.
Can anyone advise how I can legally work for my employer while a decision is made on our application.
Any advice would be much appreciated
I think you would be entitled to a Bridging visa till such time your 186 visa is decided
I hope your 417 visa is still valid
Please recheck and explore that path
