HELP! Question partner visa 820 BVB

1611 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!

Personally I'd put the holiday on hold until I got the BVB.

If the holiday has to go ahead then the safest route is to wait until after it to apply for the visa as there is no guarantee the BVB will be issued in time, although I'd say it's likely it would be.

What is your current visa and when does it expire? Will it allow you to leave and come back?
"You should apply for your BVB no more than three months, and not less than two weeks, before the date on which you want to travel."

That's immis advice, take it with a pinch of salt.
