Hey everyone, wondering if anybody has had any experience travelling on BVB?

I currently hold a BVA, I have had the application for my 187 RSMS visa refused and am awaiting a merits review.

I need to travel home in February and am filling out paperwork for BVB.

I am wondering what happens to the BVA if BVB is granted. Does it cease or does BVB simply stand in for BVA for the duration of travel and then once I return and the BVB ends, BVA will be in effect?

Simply put, if granted BVB can I travel and return on that Visa and then when I return, ending the period of time I applied for a BVB, BVA will still be in effect

Are there any restrictions on duration of travel or reasons for travel?

Thanks!

BVB will replace your BVA, the travel facility on BVB will be limited and will expire but you will still be a holder of a BVB when you come back to Australia and for the duration of your stay on a BV, you won't go back to a BVA.

You can apply for another BVB if you need to travel again and the travel facility has expired on one BVB.

The travel facility granted will depend on your reason for travel and what the case officer deems appropriate.

Thank you,
Now the Immigration website is unclear on this, my main concern is being able to work when I return.
When returning on BVB do they apply work restrictions or preventions altogether? or will I be able to go back to my job and have the same rights as BVA?

BVB will have same rights as BVA plus travel facility. But after returning back to Australia get BVA before BVB expires.

This is incorrect. The BVB will not expire and you do not need to get a BVA. on return to Australia. . Although the travel facility will expire eventually, the BVB will remain in effect until it is either replaced or ceases because of certain events that are outlined in the bridging visa grant letter.

My apologies. I am wrong in saying that "apply for BVA before BVB expires". Because as Nick pointed that BVB will not expire and only the travel facility will expire.
