bridging visa b

hello, everyone,
my wife is currently here in Australia with me on a bridging visa A. She wants to travel home to the Philippines in November and it will have been 11 months since she last saw her daughter who is still at home in the Philippines. Is it very difficult to get a Bridging Visa B, do you need a good reason?

Also in november, it will have been around 8 months since we lodged the 820/801 onshore application.

would it be unreasonable to expect the 820 to be granted by then, making the Bridging visa b unnecessary?

thanks, Michael

From what I have seen it is unlikely to be granted by then. If you had come from the PMV then it would be probable, but the last normal 820, that I have seen from the Philippines, took 17 months.

A bridging visa B should be quite easy, and might actually trigger them to look at your application, and maybe even finalise it.

Immigration do say: You must have a substantial reason for wanting to leave and return to Australia while your substantive visa application is being considered.
Going to see the child might be a good reason. Was the child mentioned and/or included on the 820 application?

The child was mentioned, but not included in the application. We plan on
applying for a 445 dependant child visa as soon as the 820 is granted.
