I'm going on holidays next month too, so plan to apply for BVB this week. Due to long visa processing times, DIBP has become relaxed with allowing travel overseas during the processing period. They grant visas for travel as routine nowadays it seems. Don't worry, you will get the bridging visa or maybe they will grant you 820 instead since:D
thank you for you reply and have a lovely holiday:)

Hi everyone, need some help here...

I finally received an email from a case officer requiring my police check on 13 Jan after 14 months waiting. The email stated that I have 28 days to submit this police check (it is ready on my hand now).

The issue is that I have to be in Australia when decision is ready. But I am currently in overseas now and will be back to Australia on 13 Feb. (My partner and I had holiday in our home country. She went back to Australia on 11 Jan since she only got five weeks' leave. ) So I just wondering what is the best way to response this email?

Should I reply this email with the police check right away and inform the case officer my arriving date (option 1) or just wait until near 28 days then email back (option 2), so by that time, I will be back to Australia soon.

Thanks for you advise first and please let me know if there is any other options.

Are you on a bridging visa? If you applied for a BVB to go on holiday then they won't grant it until after the 'must enter by' date on your visa.

If you're not you probably should have let them know you're going away anyway.

I would send it in now and then just email your case officer letting them know you have send it in and you'll be back in Australia on whatever date.

I'd provide the police check now and let your CO know that you're visiting family in China, but will be back in Australia on xxxxx date in case the visa is ready to be granted upon your return.

Thanks for your prompt reply,TarlarAustralia and Maggie-May24.

I applied my visa in paper. Can I just email my CO with the scan copy attached or I need to sent the original copy by post then email CO my arriving date? Thanks.

They need the original if you applied by post so send that off, and once it's sent email your CO and let her know you have sent it, and then the date you'll return.

IMHO, If your CO contacted you via email, it is safe to say that you can email the CO with a copy, since you are overseas. Important documents get lost in the mail all the time and your document is time sensitive. To be on the safe side you could do both email and post.

I got my confirmation of my bridging visa today! My email said 9-12 months processing time, is this still correct? I've been reading 12-15 months on here.

Also, we've only listed two people on our 888 declarations even though we've always planned to get more, it just kinda depends who gets back to us first. Mish said in another thread that these might seem like an "after thought". How much will that matter if our other evidence is solid?

Thank for the advise, Syd. I have emailed my CO already with a copy of police check attached.

The grants seem to be coming around the 12-13 months mark, so I'd prepare for that as oppose to 9-12.

The minimum required is two, so if you want to add more it certainly can't hurt. I supplied four .

Congrats on your wedding:D

Hi Hoonie,

Are you from China? When did you apply 820/801 on shore? How long have you been waiting for? Did you apply at Brisbane office? Hopefully you can get it granted soon... Waiting for your good news...

Thanks, we had a fantastic day :)

We're supplying two from my husband's brother and dad who are both Australian and they're the ones we've put on my application. We also have one from my dad who is British but we've asked a few friends as well so it's a matter of seeing who gets back to us first.
