Quick question, do you get given a bridging visa once you've paid and submitted your initial application or after you've uploaded all the evidence?

Just trying to pre-plan and work out my timings.

Thank you

Been following this thread as I am now a few days away from the 12 month mark. Fingers crossed! Any day now!

Applied: 19 September 2014
Type: Paper application, I didn't realise you could do it all online but hopefully for the 801 I can switch to online
Status: received the acknowledgement email stating that they've received it and granted the Bridging Visa A but nothing since. Even when I sent my police clearance two months after application (first one got lost in the post), didn't receive anything acknowledging that they had received that.

Come ooooonnnn immigration!

I called them and they said they cannot tell me anything before15 months mark. That's a pretty generic response that they would give to anyone. So another couple months wait.
That is very general answer :)) omg 15 months. But I will call when I cross 12 month mask. To let them know, we want a visa so badly :))

I applied on 1st Oct 2014 so just passed 11 months. Applied online, onshore from Perth. My wife called immi last week with a query and they told her 12-15 months and averaging 14 months at the moment so looks like my wait will be for a while longer. I'm from a low risk country and we've been married for 14 years so I assumed it would be straight forward but no such luck.
hopefully its not averaging 14 months, don't want to pay for more bvbs!

I sent mine via courrier mail.
6 hours after the Courrier App told me that the parcel was delivered, I got an email with a Bridging-Visa.

Have you received acknowledgment letter or not even?
If no you should contact immigration ASAP.

If yes there is nothing to worry about until June next year. If there are no problems with your application you won't receive any contact until you visa grant which occurs 13-15 months after application

Hi guys!

I've been a long time observer of this page, and have found it invaluable over the duration of my visa application and subsequent waiting period!

Anyway, I just wanted to share the news that today, 4 days off a year since my application, my 820 has been granted, and my husband and I are bloomin' ecstatic!!

Huge celebrations with bubbles tonight, and a massive thanks to everyone here for sharing their experiences - it really has kept us sane knowing that others are here and willing to chat and support each other. :)

Cheers!

Dawn :)
