    Hi CCMS,
    I am currently on a 500 Student Visa which is only due to expire in 2021. Because I withdrew from my studies Mar 2018 and needed to apply for another Visa within 28 days I have lodged a partner visa ( de-facto Nov2014) because I was unaware of the fact that cancellation of my student visa would also cancel my BVA, making me unlawful etc.
    -I then went to see an immigration lawyer, who told me to leave the country, wait until my student visa is cancelled or they except my voluntary cancellation, then apply for a shorter visa preferable the ETA, come back to Australia and ask for reinstallation of the BVA.
    -I phoned the department of home affairs and they said because I applied for another Visa within the 28 days, I am not unlawful and should wait for the department to decide if they will cancel my student visa.
