Travelling inside Australia whilst on BVA

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm having a little worry and thought I'd ask you guys before I call DIAC

 

I've submitted my 801/820 Partner Visa application and my WHV is valid until 7 Dec, DIAC have already granted me BVA for when my WHV runs out and I am planning on going to see my OH's God Son with him on 3 Dec until 18 Dec and we will be flying to the Gold Coast from Sydney to see him...my question is do I have to tell DIAC I am doing this? Am I ok to fly within Australia on my WHV/BVA as long as I take my letters from DIAC as proof?

 

This is probably a straight forward yes or no answer but thought I'd just check as the time is looming!!

 

Thanks everyone :biggrin:

you need to tell DIAC only if you are permanently moving to Gold coast, other than that enjoying your Holiday anywhere in Aus is not a concern for DIAC but if you need to leave Aus while being in BVA you need to apply for BVB and then leave, otherwise you cannot return.
