Entry to Australia if partner withdraw sponsorship while I'm away


I am new here. Can anyone pass me some information I needed.
I have applied for partner visa on 23 august 2012 onshore and was on bridging visa A. Again i apply for bridging visa B to visit my country for family reasons. I don't have any CO assigned yet.

Now my partner dont want to sponsor me and said she will withdraw the application. I am not sure if she had already withdraw her sponsorship.

If she withdraw her sponsorship can i enter australia before my bridging visa B expires and apply another visa onshore?
if she didnt withdraw then can i withdraw application myself and apply for another visa and can get the application charges refund.

Thank you.

Hi Parru -

You are the applicant, and only you can withdraw an application (or your authorised representative). Your sponsor can certainly withdraw their sponsorship of you, which will disrupt the application process. It's likely that DIAC will then get in touch with you with the intention of refusing the application as no sponsorship exists, or give you the opportunity to withdraw the application entirely.

Re: refund, in either scenario, no refund is available, sorry.

Re: entering Australia, my view is that you need to find out very quickly the status of your BV-B, and if it's still valid (it probably is, but no guarantee), return to Australia quickly to work this situation out with DIAC if you want to stay and perhaps apply for another visa while you're onshore. If you would like to email me your name, passport number and date of birth at [email protected], I can check the VEVO online system to determine at this point whether your BV-B is still valid.

If your current sponsorship is doomed, then you need to be thinking about the big picture - do you want to stay (or return) to Australia, and if so, on what type of visa? Then make your plans accordingly - either return to Australia where you'll probably have a month or so to make another application (again, no guarantees as I have not seen all your case data) once you withdraw the visa application, or stay offshore and lodge another application from offshore for a different type of visa.

If you do return to Australia on your BV-B, one thing you would likely want to avoid is an onshore refusal of the partner visa - this could happen if you do not respond to DIAC in time after the sponsor withdraws sponsorship. With an onshore refusal, you can only apply for a refugee visa while onshore - any other application would require leaving Australia, then applying.

Please advise if I can assist any further -
