All the best!
Hi Avante, thank you. I was stressing out about it since the day I got here but your post about your experience in getting bridging visa B makes me feel better as it seems that i still have a chance to go back to my country.

The only thing i have to find out now is if i am eligible.
I never heard about it but 2 days ago, the immigration officer told me that i will still be on tourist visa until the 12th of november because i arrived in melbourne on the 12th of august. It was a bit of shocking information because it is written on my visa that my visa is going to be expired on september 29th but apparently, i misinterpreted that "expire" word on my visa.
They said i wont be able to enter the country after september the 29th 2010 but my visa will be expired 3 months after my arrival date (let's say thou i arrive in the country on sep 29th, i will still holding the same tourist visa until 29th of dec 2010) if only i knew about that, i would have leave my country on september the 29th 2010 and spend more time with mom.

I thought i will let you guys knows about it in case some of you have the same interpretation with that "expire" term in your visa.

So assuming your information is right and I cannot apply here in Aus, it might be best to just go back to Canada as I already have a ticket booked to return Nov 10. What i'm wondering is if I get my medical examination here in Aus and take those papers/ results back with me to Canada, Can I use them as part of my submission in Canada?? Or would I have to get an exam from a Canadian doctor?
I would like to just have all documentation ready before I go to Canada then as soon as I arrive there, send everything off straight away.
It is a problem when people start tagging on to others threads rather than starting their own and you also need to just extract what is relevant to your own situation from other posts.
Have you considered doing an offshore application whilst here if eligible and posting it over to the Canadian address for processing.
It may be possible but do a check with Immi on that and yes, you can do a medical and get your police checks on the way though with the medical, there's always the problem of it being kind of lost in the sytem without there already being an application and an application to be made abroad but by contacting Immi they should be able to advise on that and appropriate measures to be taken to get it connected with your application.

Yup your bridging visa only comes into effect when your current visa expires. Considering you are currently on a tourist visa, it would expire 3 months upon entry into Australia. I am not sure if there is a way you could expedite things by cancelling your current visa, but I'm sure you could ask immigration that question and see if they can provide you with any useful options. They are known to be quite empathetic if you clearly and patiently explain your situation.
