Exclamation voluntary cancellation student visa

Hi,

I am Imran. I am seeking advise in regards to voluntary cancellation student visa, because I applied for skill graduate visa 485 last month. Beside that my student visa is valued until September 2016. But I don't want to continue study as I have financial problem. Also , the common scenario is I have BRIDGING VISA A, which is not effective as I have continuing student visa, so me and my spouse, we are not able to work full time.

Therefore, I would like to voluntarily cancel student visa.

I would like to know that, is it possible and if yes, will be there any negative effects on my graduate skill visa. Also any other bad circumstance that I will fall on?

I'm confused ..... isn't a graduate visa for someone who has completed their studies? That is what I would have thought since they call it a graduate visa.

But you said in your original post that you don't want to continue study due to financial reasons which say you are still studying.

If you have finished you don't need to cancel your student visa you can work full time when course not in session or has been completed.

Yes, it isn't clear what the issue is in case the course has been completed. The visa holder as Mish mentioned should be able to work full time. Then before the student visa expires one can apply for the appropriate visa they are eligible for.

Cancellation of a student visa from what I understand won't result in acquiring a BVA but a BVE which is quite the opposite of what the OP is wanting to do as BVE doesn't give the holder any work rights. Unless work rights are applied for separately to waive the no work condition of the BVE due to financial hardships or compelling circumstances.

Please do correct me if I'm wrong

Your student probably allows you to work full time as long as your course isn't in session, but check the visa closely to make sure of this. As long as this is the case, you can simply work and if the student visa expires before the 485 is granted, you go onto the bridging visa which also allows you to work.

If you cancel the student visa, then the bridging visa is also cancelled and you are then in an illegal position which will cause all sorts of issues.

Hi everyone, I am currently on a student visa with one more year of university to go. However, I am unable to finish now due to financial hardship. My partner and I have lived together for 4 years and I would like to apply for a partner visa to stay on.

However, I am not sure what's the best way to go about this and appreciate any help I can get.

Currently my options are:
1. Cancel student visa onshore, then receive a Bridging E -> Undesirable, as I have to work
2. Cancel student visa, leave the country and reenter as a tourist, then apply for partner visa onshore -> Does cancelling my student visa onshore/ offshore makes a difference? I have read that waiting to cancel my student visa offshore means that I will not have a re-entry ban?
3. Switch from my current higher education visa to a vocational visa (I'm thinking a few months Cert 3 course because it's affordable and I can then fulfil the study aspect to activate my Bridging A). However, is this conversion feasible? Semester is also starting back soon.

Am feeling very helpless as I so not know what's the right way to cancel my study visa to apply for a partner visa and not be separated from my loved one. I truly appreciate any help I can get!

You do not need to post the same question in multiple threads. Posting it in one thread is enough.

Sorry Mish, I am new to this forum (day old) and posted in different threads thinking there might be different people following different threads. I will now stick to one thread. Thanks!
