Question Student visa 500 convert to Partner Visa subclass 820 (onshore) in Australia

Hey everyone!

I would like to know few details about the conversion of Student Visa 500 to Partner Visa subclass 820 as an onshore applicant in Australia.

I have recently came to Australia in July 2019 and my postgraduate study visa will be ending on August 2021 (after 1.5 years from now).

In January 2020 after completing one semester, I am planning to lodge Partner Visa 820 and cancel the student visa. I have heard that I will be granted Bridging visa as soon as I will lodge my application for Partner Visa, and when my student visa will be cancelled that Bridging visa will continue till the outcome of application is announced. Also I will have Full Working rights, Medicare and Traveling rights. Is this true?

Now what can be the complications?
What is the process?
Any important key details that should be considered?
What are the chances of rejection in my case by the visa officer?
Any chances of any kind of ban or anything?
Any of you has done this? Please help me out!

How exactly should be the case processed so that I get positive outcome after two years of processing time?

You need to do a lot more research, do a search on this forum as it's been covered many times. If you cancel your student visa your bridging visa will be cancelled and you will have to apply for briefing visa E which has no work rights and no chance of travel rights.
Also depending on your contract with the Uni you might still have to pay the full tuition anyway. Planning to use the student visa as a path to a partner visa is a expensive option.

Agreed. The OP needs to get some proper advice before going down this route, as what they have “heard” is just plain wrong.
