HELP! Question partner visa 820 BVB

1612 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Ranc
Hi everyone!

My partner and I (He is Australian and I am Dutch) are planning to apply for the partner visa 820 on shore soon.
Our only concern is that we have a holiday booked in a couple of months. This means I would need to apply for a BVB that allows me to leave the country. What if immigration does not grant the BVB on time? Would you recommend us to wait before applying for the partner visa?

Thank you in advance!

Edit: I am just realising that I need a BVA before I can apply for a BVB. And since I won't get a BVA before my current visa ends I won't even have a chance of getting a BVB before November.. so the only thing that bothers me is that traveling out of Australia on my current visitor visa can affect my eligibility for a BVA.

It's all really confusing to me..
Be careful with Visa ending dates. Are you on an eVisitor? Those are valid for a year, but each individual stay is only for 90 days. This means that your expiration and transition to a BVA is typically at the end of those 90 days.

Now, if you go on holiday overseas before your 90 day clock is over and your BVA kicks in, and then come back into Australia you've reset the 90 day clock.
