When doing a partner visa a automatic bridging visa A was sent to us. - Single entry visa.

I need to change to Bridging visa B - Multi entry visa.

Has any one done this and if so do you know the time it takes to process.?

I cannot seem to find the info on the Immi website or the price.

Have not heard of this before Ozy !
Maybe because we lodged it in Australia while she was on a student visa. Not sure.

Also found when doing the partner visa we could not add the kids. Have to do a separate visa for them subclass 445. Grrr

hmm that is possible ! I have a mate with an Indo wife that met here and applied here , seem to remember something about a bridging visa . Will ask if was the same !
Although his story will be very very different from yours ! (wife believed all her Indo friends and the whole process went south )

Basic story is without details : they got married her while she was a student and applied for a PV. Her friends told her now that she was married and PV applied for , she no longer had to study ! So she stopped studying .
Well PV was knocked back because she had contravened terms of her visa so had to leave the country for at least 18months ! And start the whole process again and forfeit all moneys paid !

Yep need to be careful that you still stick to the conditions of the student visa. My wifes expires in September so we are aware she needs to keep going to school and work no more than 20 hours a week.

The problem we have is the PV she automatically gets the bridging visa A so after September if she leaves Aust she cannot come back. That's why we need to change the bridging visa to B

It's amazing how lax people are with visa's.......my wife and I are manic about ours(although she did work cleaning apartments on her own when just here on tourist visa)
But I can't tell you how many Thai's we know that have overstayed
One for 10 years in the US!
We know one girl who used another girl's passport to go to US for a visit also!

We do everything by the book, its just not worth it if you are in for the long hall. Plus we need to get the kids over soon so not worth the risk doing anything wrong.

Would this be the same "mate" who got physically evicted from his Government house because he ignored about 100 warnings from them over breaching their conditions? 555 If so, not sure I would blame the wife entirely...
