Bridging Visa B effective in my case ?

Hello everyone,

Currently, I am planning to apply for 190 visa within next 10 to 15 days as I have been nominated by the NSW state.

Currenlty, although I am at a 572 visa and it will expire in the last week of June 2016, I need to travel overseas because of some unavoidable circumstances in the last week of May 2016.

My question is that since I am planning to apply 190 visa before I leave, I will be granted a bridging visa "A" BUT IT WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE BEFORE MY STUDENT VISA EXPIRES (i.e. "June 2016").

My goal is to travel overseas on a bridging visa B which allows me to come back to Australia. However, I believe I will not be back before a decision on my application is made due to personal circumstances.

Please advise, if two requests are required to be made to department at present. After applying 190, firstly "request to cancel student visa immediately", secondly, "request to grant a bridging visa B". How long these two requests take to complete by the department

Please reply to me as I am a bit confused.

Thanks,
Regards,
Henry

If you ask them to cancel your student visa, your bridging visa will be cancelled as well. You can apply for the BVB before your student visa expires, and it would replace the BVA.

Many thanks for the reply.

What I understood from the post is that I can apply onshore for 190 visa application. Once I will apply, I will be granted a BVA. Since I am planning to travel overseas, I should apply for BVB while I am in Australia. The immigration will update the status of BVA to BVB (i.e. "However, it will be effective after expiring of my student visa").

Couple of more questions regarding BVB in this scenario:

1) How long does it take to get BVB approved/setup/granted ?

2) What is the maximum length of this visa which can be granted to me (i.e. 3 months, 6 months , 1 year)

3) If there is a rejection for the 190 application at a time when I am overseas on a BVB, can I come back to Australia?

Thanks in advance,

Regards,
Henry

What will happen if I am outside Australia when my 190 visa application is due to be finalized? I believe an applicant needs to be onshore at the time of grant of the visa? Please correct me if I am wrong.

Regards,
Henry
