I'm deciding between visas, and noticed that some requires me to be inside/outside Australia when the grant decision is made.

But how will this work practically if I'm on the wrong place when they're making the decision?

e.g. If I need to be outside Australia, but I'm a tourist in Australia when they make the decision?
e.g. If I need to be inside Australia, but I'm visiting my home country on a BVB?

Will I lose the visa application/my place in the queue, or will they just contact me and delay the decision until I get to the right place?

Thanks!

Thanks for your reply.

No problem with getting to the right place ASAP, but the word 'generally' suggests sometimes an applicant can lose the whole application? Are there factors that will make this more/less likely?

Just bit wary cause it's a parent visa with very long queue and we would be devastated to start over just because of travels.

Ah yes thank you, that would be logical.

Sorry one last related question. If we apply for a visa that allows the applicant to be either inside or outside Australia at the point of decision, can we switch half-way?

e.g. We apply onshore and receive a BVA, but need to travel later and either BVB is not approved or too short. Can we just return to home country and wait, since the visa allows for a decision when applicant is outside Australia? Or must we be in Australia since the application was first made onshore?
