Hey there!

A little background about our situation... I'm an Australian citizen & was living in Canada where I met my partner. We moved back to Australia in 2012 to have our 1st child & applied for the Partner Visa (subclass 309 & 100). We were approved for the temporary visa (309) after being home for about 2 years. We then decided to move back to Canada in 2014 so we withdrew the permanent resident visa application before the subclass 100 visa was completed (we were not able to get a refund).

We have now been back in Canada for 6 years, and we would like to move back to Australia in approx 2 years give or take so will start the visa process soon.

I'm wondering if anyone else has re-applied for the same sponsorship visa a 2nd time? Or if we can somehow bypass the paperwork (one can hope!) or the fee?

The only information I can find on Withdrawn applications is if the relationship ended which is not the case for us.

Any advice or personal experience in regards to this situation would be appreciated!

Here's to hoping that we can skip paying for & dealing with the process of this visa twice :)

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to skip anything if you withdrew your previous application. I would get some professional advice on how best to take this forward.

You withdrew your application so now you need to start from scratch.
Would of been much better to of just let the application run its course.

I’m not sure why you would withdraw the application, unless it was different years ago when you did this but relocating to Canada doesn’t mean a withdrawal of application. Yikes.

I was granted my 309, we lived in Australia for 18 months but came back to Canada, and I’ve just moments ago received my grant for the sc 100.

Consulting with a migration agent may be your best bet at this stage.

At the time we didnt intend to or know if we would return and there were many personal reasons we didnt stay. As far as I knew we couldn't keep the process going if we left and my partner then sponsored me in Canada (this was 6 years ago we left Aus).

I guess I'll get started on the paperwork then!

Yes it would have but there were many personal reasons we had to make the decision to leave and at the time from all of the researching I had done we were not able to leave the country permanently and continue with the process.

No, that's fine, everyone has their reasons for leaving. My wife (sponsor) and I left Australia after living their for 18 months to come back to Canada to check out a job opportunity. I sponsored her for PR when we were in Australia, it was granted and we came back.

While here we finished the second stage of the application and just received the grant.

The reason I said you may want to consult with an agent is because I don't know how you address the withdrawal of an application when there was no breakdown in the relationship.

Best of luck! You've done it once before, so you can do it again :) But if you need help this is the place to be!
