About a month after this my partner applied for a bridging visa B to travel home for a couple of weeks to visit family. The bridging B was granted for 6 months with multi-entry expiring in november. We havent heard anything from the government since then. I was wondering if applying for the bridging B visa places you on hold/makes your application take longer? we are travelling in december again so I was a bit worried this will push the visa processing time back even further. Thanks!
Hi Jdant94, my partner was in a very similar situation (RE timelines and etc.). We applied Nov 2017, got a medical request in April 2018, heard nothing, then she applied for a BVB in July 2018 and that got approved for 3 months (meaning it expired today, 13th Oct). Still didn't hear anything until we got the Grant notice this morning
I don't think it puts it on hold, however, you probably won't get the partner visa grant until your BVB expires.
I am only guessing, but I would say in our case, our Case officer approved the visa while the BVB was still in effect, and so as soon as it expired (which was today), the Partner visa grant came into effect.

So, I wouldn't worry about the BVB putting it on hold. I think someone could still be looking at your case.

I hope this helps!

A grant would automatically override it. An 820 isn't like a bridging visa so it doesn't wait in the background to go into effect. Once it's granted, it's granted. Also the BVB wouldn't have expired, only the travel facility ended. You would have noticed if you didn't get the 820 grant that VEVO would show you still on the BVB even after the travel facility ended.

Most likely just coincidence!

A little help. New member here. We’ve applied for 820 last year. Sept 2017 and on March 2018 they requested additional info which I sent immediately.

Today, I received another email requesting another info but it was blank. There was a pdf, but the requesting info section was blank. They weren’t asking anything.

Has anyone experienced this? Should I just call immigration?

Help pleaseee.

Ta.

I would start by logging into immi and checking the messages there within the application to see if something else is there. If that pdf is blank as well (or not there at all), then I would probably just upload it back into my immi account with a letter explaining it's been received but it was blank. I'd screenshot the upload screen showing it was uploaded as well and save for future reference if required. (If you haven't noticed by now, I like to leave a paper trail as proof should things go south in the future. I doubt I'd win in a their word against mine situation! So document everything )

If you can see where it's being processed (so a footnote usually in the pdf or something in the email), you can try to email them and explain as well. You can call but as it's just a call centre and COs aren't waiting by idly to answer phone calls, I doubt you'd get very far. But I guess anything is worth a shot.

Thanks! I emailed them already. I just don’t know what I’ll do next because there’s no upload button on my immi account. I’ll try and call tmr and see what happens then.

Hi, I don't really know where it's appropriate to ask this and I haven't found anything helpful online, but do I need to contact home affairs if I'm travelling out of Australia for a holiday? I currently am on 820 visa, and already received an email from them telling me that I can submit the next stage application (even though it's still a month early for my eligibility date). I've tried calling their number but the options they provide don't match what I need at all. Thanks!

You might have a CO just send email or call the department they will guide you. What's your timeline with in how long did they grant you 820.
