Hi Australia Forum,

Long time lurker - first time poster here.

I'm applying to the 820 visa soon but am also looking at visiting my home country (hopefully) for a few months towards the end of the year.

I will apply to the BVB but due to COVID-19 restrictions I'm anticipating not being able to come back before the BVB expires. I'm wondering if anyone can answer the following questions:
- If you enter Australia on a tourist visa and apply to reinstate your BVA does the issued BVA have full working rights (same as the previous BVA that was granted after applying to 820 onshore)?
- How long does the application to reinstate the BVA take to be processed roughly?

Thank you!
