VISA 573 STUDENT Successful Completion Early - Apply for De Facto


I have just successfully completed my course early, on a 573. The school notified the DIAC last year when I fast tracked and again last month when I finished my studies.

I want to apply for 820/801 (we will qualify) but can I apply now that my COE has been cancelled? I am still short of the 28days from completion.

I am not going to find another Bachelors/Masters to finish off my original visa. And I am travelling Dec15th for 3 weeks.

Student Visa valid until August 2013
COE cancelled Oct.26th, 2012 for successful completion of course
28days from Oct.26th is Nov.21st

Has anyone heard of Policy 82108? A lawyer told me about it.

Thanks, Tabisso

Hi Tabisso

You can apply for 820 but you need to do it before your current visa the time you send 820 in maybe write a cover letter to mention that your Student visa must be cancelled...

Just make sure you have all the necessary forms and enough evidence to poof your relationship and all the required aspects

Hi, thanks Dingo.

I have applied and received an BVA under my student 573, while waiting for the de facto.

I have read conflicting advice regarding cancellation of my student visa, some say that voluntary cancelation of my student visa will wipe out my BVA/820, however I am not really cancelling it as the school has notified them that my COE is cancelled due to successful completion.

If I call up to cancel my 573, will I go on my BVA... any suggestions.

My goal is to be on a BVB mid December.
