    BVB - Bridging visa B

    Hi Everyone, I applied for a BVB but the online lodgement did'nt work so I did a paper application. I posted it a month ago and haven;t heard back from them. I'm flying back to Europe in 6 weeks so I'm a bit worried that i won't have it in time. Maybe it got lost in the post. How do i know that they received it? Is it normal that i haven't heard from them yet? Would be highly appreciated if someone knows more about it. Thanks xx
  2. Hi all, My Victoria SS has been successfully, so can now apply for a 190 visa. However, I'm due to travel back to the UK shortly and need clarification regarding the travel limitations. If I apply now, will a bridging visa B be required before I can re-enter the country (even though my current 457 has not expired)? I'm seeing lots of conflicting information online with either: Upon 190 application, I will be granted a bridging visa (A) and even though my 457 has not expired, I will still require a bridging visa B in to re-enter. As my 457 has not expired, I will stay on the 457 and the bridging visa A will just remain inactive - meaning I can still re-enter as per the usual 457 rules If anyone is able to clear this up then that would be great. Also, when it says you have 60 days to apply from invitation, does that mean I can start the application now, but it just needs to submitted within 60 days? As from starting the application to completion, are there any limitations on travel? Thanks

    Need advise for BVB! :S

    Hi, I'm just looking for a bit of advice from anyone who knows anything about the Bridging Visa B. I am currently on a Bridging Visa A whilst the Sydney office are processing my application for a De-facto Visa. I have been with my partner for 18 months and the De-facto visa application was submitted in April 2011, I have contacted the office recently to find out the processing time. They told me as they are 12 months behind it could take until April 2012 :arghh: In July 2011 I obtained a BVB to return home to the U.K for my brothers engagement, I had no problems with this and simply filled in the 1006 application and was granted the visa. However I am now wanting to return home again for the Christmas period and was wondering if it would be difficult to obtain another BVB? My sister has recently had a baby and got quite ill afterwards, although she is now on the mend my family are wanting a family Christmas all together and I want to go and meet my new neice in person:cute: Would this be classed as a valid reason? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I am from Sri Lanka. I have been living in Melbourne on student visa. One month ago, I finished my course and applied for Temporary Residency (Graduate Visa - 485 subclass) just last week. So I am on Bridging visa A now. In about 2 months time, I have to go to Sri Lanka to get married. Marriage, honeymoon everything will take around 6 weeks. Now if I go to the immigration department in Melbourne and mention this, WILL IT BE A VALID REASON to grant Bridging Visa B? :cry: What kind of proof will they require? How long will they take to grant visa? How soon should I apply for this Visa? Thanks everyone.

    BVC to BVB

    hi, I've been told that I might get a bridging visa C instead of A. Is it possible to apply for a Bridging visa B whilst on a bridging visa C? Any answer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
