ETA to BVA - When does BVA start?

I'm a bit unsure about when the BVA kicks in if you're here on an ETA with multiple entries.

The full 12 month ETA expires in September, but the current 3 month period ended on the weekend.

Does this mean hubby is on the Bridging visa now, or not until September?

I've tried using Vevo with the numbers supplied on bridging visa grant letter but it just says it can't locate it with those details.

Any ideas?

What I've read from other posters (including Mark I think), is that the BVA takes effect when your husband doesn't leave after the most recent 3-month visit. I'll see if I can find his post that says that.

Yes, the BVA kicks in once the current 3 month period expires. Your husband will be on the BVA now.

You can always call and verify the visa that he is currently on for peace of mind

Thanks Maggie that's what I imagined - just not sure....

Awesome thanks Star

We are thinking of doing a visit to his family and weren't sure if we should apply for BVB or what.... I guess we should do that then.

What if you apply for BVB then don't end up going... I wonder if that's a problem?

Applying for a BVB isn't too difficult and doesn't take long so I would just leave applying for it until you definitely know that you're going. It used to be that they really didn't like you leaving the country while waiting for a partner visa, but with the processing times completely blowing out, they are much, much more lenient.

I'm honestly not sure what happens if you apply for the BVB and then don't end up going, but I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem - just ring up immigration and advise them of the change in plans and they will probably just reinstate the BVA.

OK great, thank you. Flights look to be ridiculously expensive for when I was thinking of so perhaps we won't

When were you looking at going? We are planning a trip to the US end of September so we can introduce the new baby to Theo's family. We are planning on visiting his parents and some friends in Florida and then taking a trip to New Orleans to visit his childhood stomping ground (he grew up in NOLA, and then Florida). He spent the last 15 years of his life in Texas, but has no desire to go back there.

We are planning on hitting Disney World and doing all the touristy things.

Where abouts in 'Merica will you be going?

We were thinking of April, as there is a 3-day working week between the Easter weekend and the ANZAC Day holiday, which would mean I'd only have to take 3 days off work but could go away for 10 days.

Doesn't seem to be any sales on at that time. We are only in Cali so it's quite good - fly to LAX then a hire car. But fares are over 2k each that week just to LAX.... I've never paid more than 1200 and really can't afford the extra - shame though, I don't know when I will get another chance to take time from work before Christmas.

I've been wanting to get over to New Orleans, it's high on my to-do list, but travelling for pleasure seems to be a low priority since starting having a long - distance relationship.... All spare money goes to visits!
