Thank you for taking the time to answer my query paulhand. I applied for a BVB in February and there was indeed a link there:
my applications>view details>bridging visa>BV information
there was actually a link to make an application there but now it just links to the immi.homeaffairs.gov.au
website, where if you patiently go through every paragraph there are 4 links to another page about the BVB on the same website.../visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/bridging-visa-b-020#HowTo
where there are 5 tabs, and on the step-by-step tab there are 5 steps and step # 3 advises:
Apply for the visa online using ImmiAccount if you applied for your substantive visa through ImmiAccount and a decision has not yet been made on that application.
- Log in to ImmiAccount.
- Attach documents.
- Have family applications processed together and attach documents to their application.
the underlined words are hot links & if you follow the attach docs link it takes you to the page on the same website that is just a general information about making an application for anything through your immi account - /help-support/applying-online-or-on-paper/online
which tells you to log into your immi account and select "new application" ....so now I am back to where I started because
there is nothing there that is specifically for a BVB
I have done a general web search and found the pdf form (1006) from the same website: /form-listing/forms/1006.pdf
which states that you can complete and submit online by uploading the doc to your immi account after you pay for it on your immi account.
So I paid for it no dramas, but when I try to upload the docs I get an error message...so I asked a general question to see if someone else could explain the process to see what I missed
