Hi All,

I was just wondering if anyone has been in this situation before:

I applied for a student visa on May 9, 2018. Once I finished all remaining requirements like medical checks, I decided to go home to my country whilst waiting for the visa. So I purchased a ticket for May 28 returning end of June. Now, I knew that I was supposed to apply for a BVB before leaving, however, I was so stupid on not researching first how long I have to do it before I really need to leave. Long story short, I applied for the BVB two days before I left and got declined.

My saving grace was that I get approved with my student visa. Which I did, I got the grant on the 20th June.

Now my question is, will I have any issues returning to Australia with this visa since I left the country and the BVB got declined?

I have read somewhere that they will allow entry since you now have a valid visa, however I just want to confirm just in case they detain me and not allow entry since I left the country without the bridging visa b.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Febie

You can leave on a BVA, it just ceases when you do so you'd need a valid visa to reenter. If you have a visa that allows you to enter Australia, then that's what you need.
