Hi,
My mom visitor visa Subclass 600 is expiring on 23/11/2021
Applied for Subclass 838 on 28/10/2021 .

Sent all the documents through Australia post on Tue 26/10/2021.
And the same has been received at the destination address on 28/10/2021.
So far as of 8/11/2021, I have not received any communication regarding the new application or bridging Visa.

General immigration contact number does not seem much help.

Did anyone had similar situation.
Any advise is really helpfull.

Thanks

I applied for another Visa in September through paper application (not online) and the mail was received by Dept of Home Affairs on the 21st September. My current Visa will expire in 3 weeks but have not received a Bridging Visa yet nor any acknowledgment email up till now. Ringing those customer service people are not helpful at all. I am in the same boat and confused as well.

Hi Bhar,

I saw your post about applying for visa 838 for your parent. I have a question about proof of financial dependancy. What did you include in the application as proof? Also, where are you with your application currently? Did you get a bridging visa?
Your help is much appreciated.
Thanks,
Leila

It took almost a month to receive acknowledgement of 838 valid application. 864 visa application only take few days to a week to receive acknowledgement. Any application submitted would come with a bridging visa a if you hold a substantive visa when apply onshore. The bridging visa will not be in effect until current substantial visa expires.

Hello everyone,
I have applied for a Visa last year September on paper application and the mail was received through AusPost tracking, but I didn't receive any acknowledgment or tried to contact immigration was not helpful. I applied again on November online application and received acknowledgement the next day and after 3 days got my Bridging Visa A. Paper application is no longer effective. Apply online through ImmiAccount

The subclass 838 immigration page says:
"You must apply for this visa on paper. You must be in Australia, but not in immigration clearance, when you apply."
