Will TR (820/801) partner visa be granted before student visa end?

Hi,

Just curious whether the Department will grant a temporary resident partner visa (de facto) 820/801 before student visa expires?

My GF applied for a de facto visa in December 2014, her student visa ends in March 2015.

The reason i am asking is that we are thinking of withdrawing the application as she would need to go back overseas. However, we wont be doing so until March, so just want to make sure that there hasnt been a case where the Department granted a partner visa before student visa ends

THanks,

Why would she need to go back overseas? She'll be granted a BVA when her student visa expires and can apply for a BVB if she needs to travel out of country.
The only 820 grants I've heard of that come through in that short a period of time are 820-after-PMV. And those can take as little as a few days!

Na she is thinking going back for a couple of years so BVB wont work.

Im just scared that her TR will be granted too quick before we can withdraw before a decision is made. So im hoping to hear that usually partner TR wont be granted before a student visa ends (only after BVA kicks in)

Can anyone validate this hypothesis?

Thanks,

what country is your gf from? I applied Dec 2013 and my visa was granted end of May 2014 and at just under 6 months that was a fast grant! Most applications are taking anywhere from 9-18 months from what I've seen on this forum so the chances of her being granted the visa before March are very very low.

Also be aware that by withdrawing the application,you will lose the application fee and if you apply in the future you will have to pay again

Thanks Valentine,

Yes i am aware of losing the fee and that doesnt matter in the scheme of things. I was more worried about re-applying but having a history of withdrawal.

But we have our reasons and i just dont want to withdraw once a decision is made because 1. it uses 1 of my quotas and 2. it leaves a bad record

Thanks everyone

Personally, I highly doubt that it would get granted within 3 months. You COULD of course be one of the very, very lucky ones but the chances are slim I'd say.

Yes, they absolutely can and do grant partner visas before the previous visa has expired (like student visas).
