Hello. I have a question regarding to my student visa 573 which expires in May 2018. After I finished my study in March, I had a plan to go overseas from end of March - April so I applied for a partner visa 820 as soon as I finished my study as Homeaffair advised me to do so to avoid confusion on my arrival in Australia. They also told me I'm alright to go overseas because I hold student visa until May 12 and bridging visa A wouldn't kick in until student visa's expiry. However, I received an email from my uni on March 26 that they cancelled COE on March9 and I have 28 days from March9 to apply for a new visa, otherwise student visa would be cancelled. I was already in overseas on March 26 and I can't get back to Australia within 28days. I contacted Homeaffair to check if they cancel my student visa if I already applied for 820, and they told me they would cancel it because I'm not currently studying and I'm in overseas. They also advised me to apply offshore partner visa if it is cancelled because bridging A will be invalid as soon as student visa got cancelled and I'm offshore. Can you advise what I can do in this situation? Thank you in advance.
