Question hi i am a new member! My Fiance is in Australia, Can I Apply for Student Visa?

Hello Everyone, I am trying to post again as my recent post was not posted.

I am currently engaged to an AU PR but we have not lodged anything yet with Immi as my fiance was layed-off from his job due to Covid. So PMVs and Partner Visa can't be an option because he can't show any financial capacity to support our relationship if we apply,.

Our question is, is it possible for me to apply for a Student Visa instead? since it was also in the news that AU will soon open its borders to international students.

This Covid situation has been so hard and we just want to be together. Thank you in advance for your advices!

Many PMVs and Partner visas are granted to people without showing financial capacity. However, during COVID, the chance of getting a PMV is almost zero.

A student visa does need the applicant to have financial capacity. A student visa can be applied for, but there are issues to consider if planning to change to a partner visa.

I have read that some have problems that they did not expect.

The Student Visa holder will apply for the 820/801 Onshore Partner Visa route, and then wait..
  • Some people think it is easy, fast and automatic, but it isnít.
  • Some realise it isnít that easy, but are not worried, as they are expecting to get a Bridging Visa (BVA), that will give them full working rights immediately. However that BVA will not go into effect until after the Student Visa ceases.
  • Some realise that the BVA will not go into effect until after the Student Visa ends, so they go ahead and cancel the Student Visa.. BUT, cancelling the student visa, also cancels the BVA.
Many people get caught out by these rules, as they didnít read everything fully, and then end up hiring an Immigration Agent to try to fix up the problem
