What is a Bridging Visa?

There are five classes of bridging visas.

Bridging visas are used to make 'non-citizens' lawful who would otherwise would be unlawful in the following situations:
  • During the processing of a visa application made in Australia for a substantive visa. This also includes a merits review of a decision to refuse such an application.
  • While arrangements are made to leave Australia.
  • At other times when the 'non-citizen' does not have a visa (for example, when seeking judicial review) and it is not necessary for the person to be kept in immigration detention.
