Hi,

Can anyone help me by answering this:

My wife is going to apply for partner visa offshore but since it takes a while to process this visa, she wants to apply for a student visa as well which takes less time. Just wondering if she can apply for multiple visas in paralal.

If she gets the student visa and comes to Australia what will happen to the partner visa? Will the immigration let us know when its granted? Does she need to go back to overseas(any country) to get the partner visa stamp? Just wondering whats the usual process.

thanks in advance.

You can apply for more than one visa at once and if she applies offshore, she will need to depart Australia to have the partner visa granted.
The other alternative would bve to see if she can get a student visa and if it has no No Further Stay condition on it, she may want to consider applying onshore.
She will need to be wary re considering just dropping the study after she has the onshore partner application in as that would mean she is in default of that visa, her current one and that could create complications, similar to as I've described @ http://www.australiaforum.com/visas...re-offshore-partner-visas-visiting-visas.html
If she goes for the onshore partner application and wants to put the study off until she had PR and so it'll be cheaper, she probably ought to approach Immi to see if she withdraws form study and wants to cancel her student visa, would she then be put on a bridging visa.

What does this mean?
"she will need to depart Australia to have the partner visa granted".
Will the partner visa processing be paused while she's here?
So, if she departs Australia, how long it may take to get that visa granted?

Appreciate your answer.

If an offshore visa is applied for, you need to be offshore to have it granted and whilst processing can continue wherever a person is, if they are in Australia and get notified that their visa grant is imminent, then they need to travel out of Australia to be offshore to have that offshore visa applied for granted.
