Hi Avante, thank you. I was stressing out about it since the day I got here but your post about your experience in getting bridging visa B makes me feel better as it seems that i still have a chance to go back to my country.Hi there foxy
So sorry to hear about your mum. Whilst I can't speak on behalf of the immigration dept, I'll say that would be a justifiable reason to want to leave Australia and I would be surprised if you did not get your Bridging B approved.
All the best!
The only thing i have to find out now is if i am eligible.
I never heard about it but 2 days ago, the immigration officer told me that i will still be on tourist visa until the 12th of november because i arrived in melbourne on the 12th of august. It was a bit of shocking information because it is written on my visa that my visa is going to be expired on september 29th but apparently, i misinterpreted that "expire" word on my visa.
They said i wont be able to enter the country after september the 29th 2010 but my visa will be expired 3 months after my arrival date (let's say thou i arrive in the country on sep 29th, i will still holding the same tourist visa until 29th of dec 2010) if only i knew about that, i would have leave my country on september the 29th 2010 and spend more time with mom.
I thought i will let you guys knows about it in case some of you have the same interpretation with that "expire" term in your visa.
