Frequently Asked Questions

Your ability to work in Australia while holding a BVB depends on the conditions associated with your visa. Some BVBs permit work, while others may have work restrictions. Check your grant letter or VEVO for details.

The duration of your BVB is contingent on various factors, including the outcome of your substantive visa application, merits or judicial review, or if you decide to withdraw your application. You can check the specific expiry date on VEVO once you’ve been notified of the outcome.

No, you cannot extend a BVB to stay longer. If you wish to extend your stay in Australia, you must apply for a new visa.

If you and your family have applied together for a substantive visa in Australia, you can include eligible family members in your BVB application. However, each family member must meet the requirements for a BVB individually.
