I have applied for another visa to live in Australia, then why do I need Bridging visa?
You need a bridging visa to live in Australia lawfully if your previous substantive visa expired and have applied for another subsequent visa. If you do not hold any visa to live in the country you become invalid resident which will lead to non-applicable to apply for Australian citizenship or permanent resident.
How long my bridging visa will last for?
Usually your Bridging visa Australia lasts until you receive the substantive visa you applied for, however it may also end if:
- Once you depart from the country, as bridging visa does not allow to return in Australia
- You receive a different bridging visa such as Bridging visa B for same substantive visa
- Your Bridging visa or substantive visa gets rejected by immigration, you were on while getting BVA.
Can I include my family members in bridging visa application?
Yes, you may include your partner, child, step-child, or partner’s child or step-child in your visa application. It is important to note that each family member will have to meet their separate BVB requirements to be eligible.
