Received an email from Immigration

Hi,

I have applied De Facto with my girlfriend last August.

My girlfriend has since travelled to China as her student visa will end May 15th. That is when Bridging Visa will kick in - we have already applied for Bridging Visa A last week.

I've just received an email saying this:

'We have received your request to re-instate your bridging visa A due to your recent travel offshore. Please be advised that bridging A visas no longer cease upon departure from Australia. Should you need to travel after your current visa ceases, you will need to apply for a Bridging B visa"

My questions:
1. This is just a warning message right? We don't need to worry about the fact that this bridging visa A will not kick in?
2. If we want to travel offshore in the future, can we change the status to bridging visa B?

Thanks in advance

Bridging visa A does not need to be applied for! You get it automatically when you apply for the 820 and it lies dormant underneath the current student visa with its travel entitlements until that runs out on Friday!!

I am assuming your partner is returning to Australia before her student visa expires or she is already back??? Otherwise you have a problem!! You can leave Australia on a BVA but you can't get back in!!!!

For any overseas travel once the BVA is active - you need to pay the $140 and apply for a BVB
