Bridging A Visa Subclass 10 Visa

Bridging visa subclass 010 is a temporary visa. The subclass 010 Bridging visa A or BVA allows you to stay in Australia lawfully between the interim period of an existing substantive visa that has already been granted and a potential substantive visa that has been applied for and may be granted in due course. Bridging visas are structured to enable applicants to remain in Australia while they await a substantive visa application to be processed. Bridging visa also provides a lawful status to those who make arrangements to depart the country. With a BVA, you can not return to Australia once you leave.

How does a Subclass 010 Bridging Visa A Work

To apply for a Bridging visa A (BVA), an applicant is required to make a prior application for a substantive visa that is yet to be determined, or they have made an application for judicial review of a decision relating to their substantive visa application, within the prescribed timeframe, and the judicial review proceedings have not been completed.

Understanding substantive visa: All visas are substantive except a bridging visa, or a criminal justice visa, or an enforcement visa.
The purpose of a bridging visa is to provide a temporary permit to an existing holder of a substantive visa to remain lawfully in Australia till the decision on their new substantive visa is made. Bridging visa A also allows an applicant to legally stay in Australia while their application is processed and being granted under a judicial review until those proceedings are completed. A Bridging Visa A allows you to travel anywhere in Australia, but you cannot depart from Australia and then come back. In case you wish to travel while on a Bridging visa, you should apply for a Bridging visa B.

The Bridging Visa A not only allows the holder to reside in Australia but also lets the visa holder work and study as per the stipulations and privileges allowed in the substantive visa, an applicant previously held. A temporary resident in Australia might face such a situation where there is a significant time gap between the cessation of their current visa and processing and grant of their subsequent visa. In such similar events, a Bridging visa subclass 010 can be of great help. For instance, where a student visa holder applies for a different substantive visa, he will be granted a Bridging Visa A with the same work as well as study permit as existing in his student visa.

A subclass 010 Bridging visa also provides its holder with an opportunity to work if the applicant can demonstrate that they are facing financial hardship. An applicant might be permitted to undertake work in Australia based on the visa conditions that apply to their BVA. If the existing BVA does not permit work or has restrictions on working, one can apply for another BVA that allows an applicant to undertake work. To apply for a BVA that permits work, one will have to demonstrate that they are undergoing financial trouble.

What are the Eligibility Requirements for a Bridging Visa A 010

The eligibility requirements for the processing of a Bridging visa A are:

  • The applicant must be in Australia when making the application and should ensure that they remain in Australia at the time of the grant of the visa.
  • The applicant must hold or have held a substantive visa
  • The applicant must have applied for a new substantive visa that has not yet been determined or made an application for a judicial review of a decision made in relation to their substantive visa application (within the required time frame), and the said proceedings are yet to be completed.
  • All the required applications and judicial review requests have been made as per the prescribed time frames.
  • The applicant must ensure that they meet the character requirements as set out by the Department.
  • The primary, as well as the secondary applicants, must ensure having complied with the visa conditions of the substantive visa they hold or have held. The stipulated visa conditions may change, and it is crucial that one ensures compliance with the said conditions at all times

There are a number of visa conditions attached to the BVA subclass 010 visa; these conditions are quite complex and may vary and apply differently depending on the eligible substantive visa currently held. E-help suggests you seek professional advice to determine if your planned activities comply with the stipulated visa conditions. If any of the circumstances concerning the applicant’s eligibility change, the Department should be informed in writing about it. It may affect the Department’s decision or lead to the cancellation of the visa. Please book an appointment with our expert visa migration agents, one of the leading consultants (in Brisbane), to ensure a smooth visa processing.
