Can you apply for a Bridging Visa B online or does it have to be done in person? Thanks!

I need some advice on when to apply for my BVB.

My travel dates are 8/10 to 9/12 (flexible). I want to book my flights soon before the flight prices go up but want to make sure I have the BVB. Should I go ahead and apply now and buy tickets after the approval?

Normally application for BVB will be processed two weeks before the intended travel date. If you apply now, the DIBP probably won't process it until then. So far, we have not seen any rejection on BVB. So, you can book your flights now.
