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.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..
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.
