What is a Bridging Visa?

Bridging Visa as the name suggest aims to act as a “bridge” between the last substantive Australian visa held and the subsequent visa application which is yet to be finally determined by the Department of Immigration or the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. Different type of Bridging Visa can be granted depending on applicant’s circumstances at the time they lodge an application for a substantive visa.
