Bridging Visa D Subclass 040 & Subclass 041

The Bridging Visa D is also called as BVD in short. With the bridging visa D you may stay in Australia for a short time if you are an unlawful non-citizen of Australia. With the bridging visa E you will not be allowed to re-enter in Australia once you leave. The visa validity expires if you leave Australia once. You can apply for Bridging visa D if your substantive visa expires and you are waiting for the grant of another visa or you are making departure arrangements from Australia.

To be able to apply for a visa subclass 040 or subclass 041, you must be present in Australia. You should not already be holding a visa while you apply for a bridging visa D. The Bridging visa D is free of cost and requires the fulfillment of certain terms and conditions to be applied for. The Bridging visa D subclass 040 or 041 does not allow you to work in Australia. A BVD is generally valid for five working days from the day it is granted or at the end of five working days since your substantive visa ceased to be valid. For further assistance on BVD contact our Migration Agent Australia.
