Overstayed my visa for 5 days. Does this cancelled my current multiple entry visa?

Hi, I have a tourist visa, multiple entry with max of 3 months stay each visit. I overstayed my tourist visa for a week because I missed my flight. I immediately talked to an immigration officer and got an appointment for a BVE. It was granted and when I asked if it will affect my future applications they said no as I didnt exceed 28 days.

I was supposed to fly back to Australia assuming I still have my tourist visa which will expire on May 2020, but upon checking in they told me that my visa had been ceased regardless of the validity. I didnt get any email from the immigration that my current tourist visa will be cancelled due to the fact that I overstayed but with a BVE.

Does this really happen? I couldnt call the embassy since it is Sunday and holiday.

Thank you, please leave some advice

The bridging E would have replaced your visitor visa.
If you want to return you will have to apply for another visa.
Do not rely on advice from DoHA officers.

Once you exceeded the stay period , the visa would have ceased.Itís not a good idea to leave departure to the last day.

Once again the devil is in the detail, the question you asked was" will it effect my future applications?" The answer you received may have very well been factual. The question you should have asked was "will this effect any further entries using this visa?"
I know it sounds pedantic, however after being in all levels of Government, both State and Federal since 1972, I can assure that you need to be absolutely precise.

I have not seen much that is less precise than the migration legislation and policy documents.
