Bridging visa after applying 189 onshore

Hey Guys,

I have applied for a 189 visa in on-shore on 1st Sep, however, I have not been granted a bridging visa yet. How long it usually take to receive a Bridging visa? I am little worried about it.

Also, I have another question how long does it take to allocate a case officer?

Please share your experience and knowledge.

You will be granted a visa when your application lodged into the system. Have you checked on VEVO yet. You can use your TRN to check with VEVO. Case officers are allocated in order of applications.

The can be situations where an application lodged while you are in Australia can still be an offshore application. In a case where a person has been refused a visa onshore and is Section 48 barred from lodging another application onshore, the application can still be lodged in Australia but is considered an offshore application. In a case like that you would not get a BVA.

Thanks Jemery for your reply!

I checked my Vevo but it is still not showing any information about the bridging visa.

As you mentioned my application might be treated as an off-shore application, even though I applied in Australia. Is there any thing I can do to change the application status?

Someone would need to review your case to see whether there is any legal reason why have not been granted a BVA. It could also be an error on DIBP's part (yes folks they are normal people and do make the odd mistake).

Suggest you first task is to phone them and find out what is going on. Use there general line 131 881. Best use a speaker phone as you will probably have to wait for any hour or so to talk to anyone. When you do get to talk to someone have you full name, date of birth and passport number ready, together with your TRN.

Hey Ash,

I don't think you will be granted a bridging visa for subclass 189 application. But I might be wrong

Perhaps a silly question, but have you looked carefully at your acknowledgement letter? My BVA was the final couple of pages in the same document.

Hey Maggie,

No, there is no any information about the BVA in the acknowledgement letter. Usually it gets sent along with the acknowledgement letter but it didn't happen in my case

Hi Ash, has your problem been addressed? I get the invitation today but am experiencing the same issues. There is no bridging visa granted automatically after lodge in. Could you share your experience? Is there anything I can do?

Hey Daniel,

I haven't been granted a bridging visa yet because I have still my current visa to be expired in 2015.

I think you will be granted a bridging visa in 5-10 days if your current visa is about to expire.

I know someone who applied the same visa who got a BV in 3 days.

Let me know how you go!
