Hi everyone!

This is a big question for me and but might be an easy answer for someone.

I've been granted for the Student Visa 500 this month and now I would like to apply soon, for the Partner Visa, my wife is an Australian citizen.

The question is, can I cancel the Student Visa 500 after I applied for the Partner Visa, is that ''healthy'' for this situation?

What would be the best option if I don't want to study anymore?

Thank you in advance,

Have a great day !

This question has probably been asked a 100 times on this forum, so for some more details, please do a search.

In brief:

If you apply for a partner visa onshore, you will be granted a bridging visa A. When your student visa is cancelled, your bridging Visa A will also be cancelled and you will become unlawful. You then need to apply for a bridging visa E, which will have no work rights (although you can apply for those separately) and no travel rights ever.

Unless you absolutely have to follow this path, I strongly advise you to stick to your student visa and abide by your student visa conditions, until it ceases by itself.

Onshore partner visa applications can take between 1 and 2 years to process, so that is a long time with no possibility of leaving Australia, if you are on a bridging visa E.

How long is your student visa for and how can you justify the GTE statement you would have provided, if you intend to stop studying so soon after being granted the visa ?

Thank you very much for your reply I really appreciate it.

The visa is available until March 2019, I am continuing the studies, the thing is when we arrived in Australia we didn't think to apply for a Partner Visa.
Thank you again.

In that case, I still advise you to continue on your student visa after you have lodged your partner visa for the reasons outlined above. It may be expensive and inconvenient, but the alternative, a bridging visa E, is far from ideal.

Make sure you meet the relationship requirements and have good evidence before lodging the partner visa application.

Best of luck!
