This visa allows you to stay lawfully in Australia until your substantive visa application is finally determined or, if granted in association with judicial proceedings, until those proceedings are complete. The BVA will end immediately if:
- You leave Australia while your BVA is in effect.
- You are granted the substantive visa you applied for.
- You are granted another Bridging visa (such as a BVB) in relation to the same substantive visa application that this BVA is associated with.
- Your BVA or the substantive visa that you held when granted the BVA is cancelled.
You and anyone included in your application must be in Australia when the BVA application is submitted and granted.
