Bridging Visa?

Hello Community!
I’m originally a German who is currently in Australia on a Visitor Visa ( EVISITOR Subclass 651). I have a problem - I’ll overstay my visa for 3 days because of the dates I booked my flights and now I read that I can get a bridging visa. Does anybody know how long it’ll take till it’s granted because I saw that the visa expires after a few days?
Hope somebody can help me and of course thanks for your attention!

Many greetings from Ocean Grove!

To be granted a bridging visa you must apply onshore for another visa.

Easiest way around it is to apply for another tourist visa. The alternative is to change your flights or become unlawful.

they also wrote: a BVE (Bridging Visa E) is a short-term Visa that remain lawful while you make arrangements to leave Australia | so actually I could apply for that ? What do you think?

THEY do not have to, and usually will not, accept a bridging visa E application until you become 'unlawful'. It is not a good idea to let this happen.
\Nick has already told you what to do. Do it!

Look at the 600 visitor visa which can be applied for while you are in Australia. You may want to compare the cost of the onshore 600 visa vs. simply changing your flight to an earlier date.

Almost everyone will agree that people should avoid a BVE since you'd be unlawfully in Australia in order to apply for it. That would mean that every time you apply for any visa to travel anywhere in the future, if there's a question "Have you ever overstayed a visa" you would need to answer yes and that may result in your application getting more scrutiny.

Yes, but very likely worse than more scrutiny! Having overstayed, it would be extremely difficult to be granted a further temporary visa to Australia, or a number of other places.

First of all thanks for the message! - but if I’m applying for a BVE it’s more difficult to get a other visa in the future for Australia?
I’m sorry if my questions are kinda dumb but I don’t want to make any mistakes and bc of the fact that I’m pretty young I’m not into all the laws and and and!

Do i really need to apply for another tourist visa just because of 3 days?
I’m becoming unlawful at the 1st of July and my flight goes at the 4th of July
And the BVE expires after 5 working days, it would actually fit perfectly?

To get the bridging visa E in the first instance you have to have no valid visa so in the country illegally.
So it all depends on your future plans.
