Lodging PR while still holding Bridging A for another visa application?

Hi all,

Just wondering what happens if I submit a new visa application (189 /190) while still holding a Bridging visa A for a 457 application that I submitted at the end of last year.
Obviously the 189 / 190 PR application is more significant than the TR 457 application and is preferred.

What would be the correct procedure to go about this?

Will I get a new bridging A if the PR application is lodged on shore?

Should I withdraw the 457 application immediately once I have lodged the PR application?

I am concered that I will lose the Bridging A when I withdraw the 457 without getting a new Bridging A for the new PR application.

Just want to make sure I do not even have a second in this country without a valid visa.

Anyone had similar experience before?

Thanks in advance.

* EDIT: This is assuming an invitation has come through and all the preparation steps are done and ready to lodge.

To lodge a 189/190 you must be invited.

Sorry should have been clearer in the original post. I am aware of that.

If a valid sc. 189 is lodged onshore, it would have its own BVA associated with it.

I can't see any benefit in withdrawing the 457 visa, unless the sc. 189 was granted first.

Hi,
Thank you very much for your response.
Just to clarify, does that mean I will have 2 BVA co-existing at the same time, each associated to different visa? Or does the PR-BVA replace the 457-BVA?

I am confused because I need to apply for a BVB to attend my sister's wedding scheduled in December. Originally I was just gonna apply BVB under the 457-BVA application on the myimmi account portal.

Now if my invitation comes through in the next 2-3 months, based on increased points recently. All of these seems to overlap at around the same time. I am not sure what are the steps I need to take. I guess I won't find out until I actually get there.

You'd really need to go and see a registered migration agent to get answers to all your questions. Too many variables and hypotheticals.

In general terms though, yes it is possible for several bridging visas to co-exist in the background, but only one of them can be in effect.
