It would be interesting to see the advice of the other agent ( and the reasoning behind it) in writing...

Yes, this was my plan. I, however, thought about buying a ticket from the 19th of December returning 13th of January to still return on the WHV. Will they consider that solid evidence since I will still be on my WHV on the date of intended return? I just don't know how severe my dad's partner's condition will be at that point of time and whether I need to stay longer in the end. So I would just need the BVB if I return before my WHV runs out.

Thank you also for pointing out the discrepancies between the grant notice and VEVO. It seems like I should rely on VEVO, from what you said. Also, it seems kind of random to set the point of multiple entry ending on the day you applied for the visa. Imagine if I applied in July 2016 and went in January 2017 - then my grant notice would've stated that my multiple entry would end in July 2017. But from all you said, I think it's just badly written - the must mean first entry needs to happen a year after the application.Correct me if I'm wrong.

In regards to DIBP - Who can you trust though? It's very tough as I at the moment feel in a constant panic about what to do.
I am always reluctant to criticise a colleague about advice they may have given, unless I can see it in writing. Too often people misinterpret or misunderstand what they have been told. Maybe this agent knows something I don't. No one is infallible and I learn new things every day.I can't see any reason to report her, unless you had been adversely affected by the advice you received.

What I do know is the following:

If a person holds a substantive visa that was granted before a BVA, BVB or BVC was granted, the BVA, BVB or BVC will cease to be in effect on cancellation of the substantive visa,whether​ or not the BVA, BVB or BVC has come into effect or is otherwise out of effect.

So if your WHV was granted before the BVA and you cancel the WHV, the BVA will cease.

The BVB issue is not a big deal really and you can still return on your WHV, so no need to panic. You may want to have a good look at the partner visa application though...

In your application for the BVB you can argue that you want to cover yourself in case you decide to stay longer or there are delays or flight cancellations. You may want to make multiple visits in the future. There is no harm in trying. Let us know how it works out.

Thank CCMS I do agree, especially when there's often a lot of change and loopholes.

I will do what you recommended. At the moment it seems as though the Immi upload has stopped working *sigh*. Luckily I have already uploaded most of the crucial documents.

Expect more problems tomorrow. There’s a big upgrade planned for tomorrow afternoon/ night.

Happy days! Take note of the expiry dates of all your current visas and make sure you travel back on time, allowing for delays and flight cancellations.

Totally will. I'm planning on returning on the 16th (whilst still on the WHV) but I have a buffer until 20th of February with the BVB, should I have to stay overseas longer. So all good!
