Bridging visa is a temporary visa that allows you to stay in Australia legally to avoid being removed by the immigration department. Some bridging visas, however, can serve a different purpose such as by allowing you to stay lawfully in Australia while waiting for you appeal at Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT)

Bridging visas are only granted and valid while you are in Australia. The bridging visa will cease once you leave the country. The only exception to this rule is the Bridging B visa that has a travel facility attached allowing you to travel overseas and return back to Australia.

Types of Bridging Visas:

  1. Bridging A

  2. Bridging B

  3. Bridging C

  4. Bridging D

  5. Bridging E

  6. Bridging F

If your Australian visa has expired, you may need a bridging visa to:

  • Remain in Australia while you are waiting for a decision on another Australian visa application

  • Travel to and from Australia while you are waiting for a decision on another Australian visa application

  • Stay in Australia while you make arrangements to leave or finalise your immigration matter
