hey Guys,

i have been following this post for some time now and it has helped us a lot, i have a unique situation ( as i have been told ) and need your help, i called today to immigration who gave me a email address " [email protected]" to send a enquiry with my questions.

thank you for taking the time to read this email, we need your help.

I applied for a spouse visa 820/301 on 15 feb 2015 online and onshore, i am currently on bridging visa and from France which is low risk assessment country.
we are planning to go for a 1 year backpacking trip around the world leaving on 15 November 2015, we have been planning this trip for a while and we both are big travellers, i have following questions if you can answer for us :-)

1- if we leave in November it only makes up to be 9 months and from what we have been seeing its taking a year to grant the 820/301, we were thinking to take a 6 month bvb and once we hear back from a case officer we will come back to Australia and get the visa and go back overseas to continue our 1 year journey, what do you recommend ?
2- is it possible to get a 6 month bvb.
3- once we arrive back to Australia for the visa how long does it takes for case officer to approve visa 820 ( we have already submitted all the required docs including police check and medicals ).

to sum it all up what options do we have provided we applied on 15 feb 2015 and wish to leave for a 1 year backpacking trip on 15 November 2015.

You might want to contact a Migration Agent to discuss this.

The problems I see here are:
- Onshore is for people living in Australia - which you won't be anymore for a year backpacking trip. So they might just tell you to withdraw your application and apply from offshore

- They might not thing your reasons for travelling are valid - as BVB is for travel and you actually intend to go live overseas

- We don't know when your visa will be granted - it might be next Feb but it might as well be next July given how slow they are atm

- They don't like to grant BVB close to estimated granting date


You should talk to an agent because the way I see it what I would recommend is to either withdraw and apply from offshore but that's really costly and put you back at the end of the line; or don't plan a year trip - maybe plan 4-5 months and then backpack in Australia?

I thing the better choice is to push this trip forward in time.
Think about it..
I understand your wiew and understand the idea of being out travelling while the application is in progress. ..
I'm not sure that the Australian Border Force would have the same wiew..

I have already lost my PR once for working overseas...
And the reason was ( as told by Immigration) that they figured that i lacked commitment to australia because of that...
I didnt matter that my wife was Australian.

thank you to those who replied.
it does seems like waiting to get the visa seems to be the most sensible thing to do, its mentally hard as we have been planning this dream holiday and it seems to be going far away from us.
surprisingly i got the reply from immi people today

"Thank you for your email.

Current processing times are between 13 and 15 months.

If you want to travel prior to your partner visa application being finalised, you can apply for a bridging visa B. You can request a grant period of 6 months however, this will be considered by the processing officer at the time of lodgement.

It is advisable to ensure all mandatory documents are provided prior to extended overseas travel.

Please submit the bridging visa B application no more than 3 weeks prior to your intended departure date.

The form 1006 can be lodged in person at your nearest immigration office or by post to:

GOP Box 241
Melbourne
VIC 3001

Please note the department does not accept bridging visa B applications received electronically.


Yours sincerely
