Other Visa

Visa denial occurs when the Ministry of Home Affairs rejects a submitted visa application. In most cases, visa denials can be reviewed by the Court of Administrative Appeals (AAT).

A bridging visa is a temporary visa we might grant you in certain circumstances. Bridging visas let you stay in Australia lawfully while your immigration status is resolved. The type of bridging visa we might grant you depends on your circumstances.

While bridging visas let you remain in Australia lawfully, only a Bridging visa B (BVB) will let you leave and re-enter Australia while you wait for a decision.

You might be eligible for a BVB if:

  • you hold a BVA or BVB
  • you are awaiting a decision on an application that is not yet finally determined or is at judicial review
  • you have a good reason for leaving and returning to Australia while you wait for the outcome of your visa application
