Ok, so this is what happened.. I called them and they say it's ok because when they receive the application they stamp it with the date that they got it, so it will be 18/04/2013 when I had a visa, she said doesn't matter if they open it or not, what does matter is if they stamp it as received... if they didn't stamp it until today I still get a bridging visa but with restrictions.. but everything makes me believe they already stamped as they had 2 days to do it. She also said they are really busy and this is why they didn't open it yet.
I just wanted to let people know what happened if you lodge a last minute application, but as some people said here, you should try everything that you can to post it a few weeks before your visa expired.

This was such a relief!!

That is a relief... and very lucky for you! That's good news. I wouldn't suggest anyone else plan for that to work, though.. you never know when something will take a little detour in the mail or end up in the wrong place.

Yeah CollegeGirl, not a good idea leave it for the last minute.. the chance to fail is big, so much better do it in time and have peace of mind..

Same thing happened with me before, because of financial difficulties.. however I called immi and they said you can still lodge an application with in 28 days after Ur visa expired IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN.

Luckily we got the money the day my visa expires and rushed in the diac office, although they said that all application need to be posted, but they still accept my application because my visa expiring, after 2 days I received an email that I'm in a bridging visa A.

The best way is call diac to confirm and what the best way to do..

Was a good idea to do it in person so you had the chance to warn them about your visa expiring, I had to do it by post as I live 600 km from Perth, so I really took a chance..
But she said they will contact me soon about the bridging visa.
