Hi guys,

So I am currently on a bridging visa E due to some awful advice which I should have verified.

Anyhow, I intend to apply for a defacto visa with my Ozzy girlfriend. Would I stay on my bridging visa E whilst this is being processed? I am aware that there have to be mitigating circumstances for the defacto to be accepted from a bridging E.

My main concern is that currently I am awaiting an appeal to process- I think they will reject it but at the moment if I leave the country I won't be allowed back in. That's fine with me but I have an elderly grandma who I am very worried about. If she were to pass and I had to go home for a funeral I would be worried about not being allowed back into the country.

I will probably apply for the defacto soon which is why I ask if I will still be on BVE? If so will they take into consideration compassionate grounds and allow my re-entry into Oz if the worst was to happen?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

T

If you are on a BVE, how do you plan to lodge a Partner Visa 820 application and meet the extra requirements on a BVE.

That's like skipping a Mars landing and trying to land on the Pluto!

Any idea what your up for here?

Hi,

I'm aware is pretty much a no. But there is a very slim chance based on some information I intend to submit. However myself and my partner have been together for under a year and at least this gets us more time for evidence even if at the end there is a rejection.

The main thing I need to know was regarding the compassionate grounds and if they would consider a return? Is that something you may be able to shed any light on?

Many thanks,

T

The only way you can get travel rights on a Bridging Visa is if you are already holding a Bridging Visa A or B. On a Bridging Visa E there is no option for travel and return whatsoever.

I guess CCMS a Registered Migration Agent and myself agree - it is a never case on the BVE.

And as I class this visa E is for Evil.
