Leaving Australia Bridging visa 461


I am currently on a bridging visa having applied for the 461 NZ visa.

The processing time is now up to 2 years and I potentially have to return to the UK for an extended period within this time (1-2 years) due to family issues. Along with the fact that I have restrictions on the bridging visa for 2 years/cannot start my life here due to being on a bridging visa for so long. I'm aware you have to be in the country when a decision is made (I applied onshore) so is it possible to return to the Uk for a year and return to australia when a decision is made?

How does this work with the application? I know you can apply for a bridging visa B to allow travel but does that allow 1-2 years whilst the visa is being processed/decision being made?

You will only know how long a BVB you will get if you apply. You should lay out the circumstances in as much detail as possible.
