Hi All,

I recently applied for spouse visa and got bridging visa. My current work permit visa (457) is about to expire in few days.

Do I need to contact Immi Dept to activate bridging visa or will it automatically be activated soon after my 457 is expired?

Please advise.

Kind regards,
Guru

It will activate automatically when your 457 visa expires. By the way, typically the BVA from a partner visa application comes with unlimited work rights so you'd no longer be required to work for your 457 employer but you should check the BVA closely to make sure of this before considering a job change.
