This visa lets you leave and return to Australia during a specified travel period while your application for a substantive visa is being processed.
This visa grants you the following privileges:
- You can stay lawfully in Australia until your substantive visa application is finalised, or, if granted in association with judicial proceedings, until those proceedings are complete.
- You can leave and return to Australia within the defined travel period while your substantive visa application is being processed.
You and anyone included in your BVB application must be in Australia to make a valid application and to be granted the bridging visa.
