Bridging Visa A travelling from Melbourne to Tasmania

Hi there,

I've already asked this question on Mark's thread but have since realised that he might not have time to reply before we head off!

I am currently on a Bridging Visa A, which I know does not allow me to travel outside of Australia. However, my partner and I recently booked a trip to Tasmania (we are based in Melbourne). I would like to confirm that I am OK to travel there and return to Melbourne without getting a BVB.

I know that Tasmania is part of Australia but I keep having an awful feeling that I'll be refused entry on my return (this whole visa process has turned me into a bit of a worrier )

Does anyone have experience with this?

Many thanks, Roxy

No problem travelling anywhere within Australia on a BVA. There is no immigration control between Melbourne and Tasmania.

regards

I don't know if this is a joke, but in case it isn't, no you don't even need a passport to get into Tasmania as it is one of the 6 states making up the Commonwealth of Australia.
