Woot look what I got into my e-mail today:
I refer to your application for a bridging visa with changed conditions to allow you to engage in full-time employment during the processing of your visa application to remain permanently in Australia.
I have considered the information you have provided and I have decided to grant you a bridging visa of the same class that you previously held, with changed conditions permitting full-time employment. The grant of the bridging visa ceases the bridging visa that you held at the time of this application.
As you do not hold a substantive visa, the bridging visa, which you have been granted, is in effect. This means that the permission to engage in full-time employment, which is attached to the bridging visa, has also come into effect immediately. You now have permission to work full-time while this bridging visa is in effect.
