'If your Visitor visa is cancelled, your should contact the department immediately. Your bridging visa may not come to effect and will not allow you to remain lawfully in Australia'

What does it mean? it means if my Visitor visa get expired then I need to inform the depeartment, then my bridging visa is in effect?

Am I rite?
it means if your visitor visa is cancelled (not expired naturally), your BV A will be cancelled too. So, then you need to apply for BV E.

if your visitor visa expired naturally, your BV A will be activated automatically. There is no need to inform them about your visitor visa expired. You can check VEVO for your latest visa status.
