Unhappy Travelling on a bridging visa

Hi all,

I am on a bridging visa A, and I am traveling overseas to visit my family in a few months, do I simply apply to travel? Will this be allowed? My flights are booked so just want to put my mind to rest as I'm beginning to panic over this

Thank you!!

From the DIBP website: Bridging visa A €“ BVA €“ (subclass 010)

Travelling outside Australia while you hold a BVA

A BVA lets you temporarily stay in Australia. It will usually end when you leave Australia. If you travel outside Australia, you need a visa to return. You can do one of the following:
  • apply for and be granted a Bridging visa B (BVB) before you travel (if you do not have a substantive visa that allows you to travel or if your substantive visa will expire before you return)
  • travel on your current substantive visa (if you have one that allows you to travel). When you return to Australia, contact your case officer before your current substantive visa ceases.
If your substantive visa ends while you are outside Australia and you do not hold a BVB, you will need to apply for and be granted a substantive visa before you can return to Australia. There is no guarantee that you will be granted a visa.

So I won't have my BVA when I come back so I won't be able to work?

Maureen, you simply call immigration and get your BVA reinstated once you're back from your travels. It's easy.
