Hi all,

I have been getting a lot of help from this forum but now I have encountered a really stupid and terrible situation due to my stupidity.

I've been preparing for the application since November and I was about to lodge it on 18th of Dec because I thought my student visa was expiring on 19th of Dec.

I was moving on pages at the evening time of yesterday(18th) and saw an warning sign about not holding substantive visa which I've never seen before when I was editing on my application. I checked my student visa again and the expiry date was 17th not 19th...

I got so panicked but since I was ready to lodge the application I thought that It's better now than one day later.. So I just lodged yesterday and got a bridging visa C today.

I know how stupid mistake I've made and I know the consequences are mine.

The question is,

1. I'm worried what if my accidental illegal stay of one day in Australia will affect my partnership visa process by resulting a rejection..

2. I got Bridging visa C, which has no work permit and no travel. I can apply to work for BVC by proving my financial hardship. but as far as i know there's no other way to be able to travel outside Australia.
I want to go overseas to see my family at least once a year.. Is there any other way for me to get travel right ?

3. Tell me any other concerns regarding my situation.


Please help.. It will be very much appreciated.

Thank you,
Summer

3. Tell me any other concerns regarding my situation.
1)that could well be the case because of schedule 3 criteria, especially 3004
2)no way to get travel tights on a BVC unfortunately
3)schedule 3 criteria

820.211(d)
in the case of an applicant who is not the holder of a substantive visa
(ii) the applicant satisfies Schedule 3 criteria 3001, 3003 and 3004, unless the Minister is satisfied that there are compelling reasons for not applying those criteria.

Unless you can meet schedule 3, you may have made a $7,000 donation to DIBP.

Consult a RMA to see if you have any chance and/or prepare for what will happen next.

Thanks for the reply. As far as I know, for people who have overstayed more than 28 days they need to meet schedule 3. Would I still need to meet schedule 3? Are you sure about that?
