Exclamation 820 Partner Visa - Briding Visa C help,URGENT!!!

Hello again,i lodge my 820 partner visa on 12th of July 2013. Since i lodge this application while im on BVA,straight away i got BVC approved. I lodge thia application on Parramatta processing centre.The case officer was very nice and within 10 mins he granted me a BVC -no work condition and no travel.

The thing is i need to travel this sepmtember since my older sis is getting married and im her maid of honor. Im aware that as soon as i leave australia,my BVC will ceased.I called immi department several times to see what my options are and i got the chance to talk to the supervisor, (he was very nice and polite) he suggest me to email partner visa processing centre,when its closer to my travel date,to see if there is anything they can do in regards to my application. I need to be in australia when my partner visa is granted.

Is there anyone here with the same condition to mine?have you guys travel on BVC and made it to Australia after?please give ur suggestions and thoughts. Since my loving partner is here in Sydney,i could not bear the thoughts of leaving him. I am torn and i dont know what to doconfused:. I was hoping that i can apply for substantive visa after.eg; tourist visa and re-instated my BVC after, is that possible?

Any suggestions and opinions will be much appreciated.

According to the information on the DIAC website, you should be able to apply for a bridging visa B about 4 weeks before you go overseas. That will allow you to travel and return to Australia to await the decision of your 820. You have to pay an application fee of $125 but if you have a genuine reason that you need to travel then it should be okay. That genuine reason is you are attending your sisters wedding as the maid of honor.

The thing is, you can't apply for the BVB until 30 days or so before travel. May I ask what visa you were on prior to being granted the BVA?

If you are on BVC, you are not eligible to apply for BVB, unfortunately.
I wonder why it is a BVC and not a BVA they gave you when you lodge your application.

My apologies, I wasn't aware you couldn't apply for a BVB if you hold a BVC.

I think the reason the BVC was granted is because when the application for the 820 was lodged, they were already on a BVA. If you don't have a substantive visa at the time of application, they grant you a BVC.

Looks like there might not be much the OP can do Try talking to DIAC and trying to find out what your options are. Be aware that if they told you to email the partner migration centre, they take 4 weeks to respond to emails generally.

As stated here, it is only possible to get a BV-B if you hold a BV-A. The other option some people use is to get a visitor visa to re-enter Australia after a trip outside.

Since OP has already applied for his 820, though, how would that affect his application? Like, say they give him 3 months on a Tourist Visa and then "no further stay" and his 820 takes six months to process? He won't be able to be onshore when it's granted, which would mean his visa would be nullified, yes? So basically by trying this route he'd be risking the visa he already had in process? Or am I looking at this wrong? Thanks Mark!

Hi CG -

Good question! If the 820 has already been lodged, then if they give a visitor visa with no further stay, that wouldn't prevent them from giving him another visitor visa once the partner visa is ready to grant to enable him to come back and be onshore at the time of grant - they have the flexibility of delaying grant in some cases to wait for the applicant to return to Australia, etc.

Best,

Mark Northam

First of all thank you for everyone's suggestions and opinions.

Hi Mark, in my point of view it seems a bit dull how immigration rules applied when you're a BVC holder. I am trying my best to find a way around this, so i can travel back to my hometown for my sister wedding. for example, what if there is a emergency needs to travel, but in the other hand you ran out of options to be able to return to Australia with a substantive visa/BVB so that you can be granted your 820 visa.

So if i choose to go back and my BVC will ceased then later on i apply for visitor visa offshore, say the worst scenario - you have 8503 condition, am i able to be grant my 820 while i am on visitor visa? how long will it take for Visitor visa to be granted while you are offshore? and my doubt is that they wont grant me a visitor visa since they probably knew that I'm still awaiting for my 820 visa being in processed and i am not in the immigration category of "a genuine visitor purposed"

Thanks Mark.

Hi Jane -

Much of this comes down to working with the case officer on your 820 application - if you find yourself outside Australia without a visa to return and need to come back for the granting of a partner visa, many times the case officer will work with you to assist with this - typically, assisting you with getting a visitor visa for this purpose. In these scenarios, the genuine visitor criteria is not generally an issue as your intention to reside permanently in Australia is already well documented via your 820 application. Also, to clarify, the no further stay condition means you cannot apply for a further visa while in Australia on that visa - in your case you would have already applied for the 820 visa, so they application would have already been made previously. The 8503 does not prevent grant of a further visa, only making further applications for a further visa, etc.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
