Partner Visa after Student Visa

Hi,

I'm currently on a student visa. I initially applied for 2 years (Certificate IV + Advanced Diploma). I realized there's no need for me to go ahead with the diploma (I can start working with the certificate only) and my partner and I are applying for a partner visa this month anyway. My Certificate ends start of July. My visa though, is valid for another year, until 2021. Do I have to continue my studies after I applied for the partner visa? I really don't want to have to pay for another year. The partner visa is expensive enough as it is.

Thank you in advance,

Elisa

The short answer is yes, or you will be in all sorts of trouble.

Thank you very much for your answer. Do we have any sort of idea of how long it takes from the application/bridging visa to the temporary partner (not the permanent)?

In 2018/19 the average time for an 820 visa was 497 calendar days (16.3 months).

In April 2020, 75% took up to 21 months, and 10% took over 28 months.

In April 2019, it was even slower: 75% took up to 23 months and 10% took over 31 months.

The time can vary a lot based on your own application information and relationship proofs supplied.

If you do not continue to abide by the conditions of your student visa, the student visa is likely to be cancelled.

If the student visa is cancelled, your bridging visa A will be cancelled as well, you will become unlawful and you will need to apply for a bridging visa E.

I strongly advise you to continue with what you signed up for or be prepared to deal with all the unnpleasant consequences of being on a bridging visa E.

If you apply for the Partner Visa, you will be granted a Bridging Visa A.

You only get that Bridging Visa A because you currently have a visa allowing you to be in Australia, that being the Student Visa.

The Bridging Visa A is "attached" to your Student Visa not the application for the Partner Visa.

Should you no-longer have the Student Visa there is nothing to attach the Bridging Visa A to & you then have no visa.

Should a Partner Visa be granted it would "replace" the visa you are on at the time, the Bridging Visa A may never be used.

* Bridging Visa E can NEVER get travel rights - being stuck without travel these last few months has been tough for many, possibly several years of no travel would be very tough for some.

You will get BVA once you apply for Partner Visa. However the BVA will only be activated (active) after your current student visa expired (not cancelled). If you cancelled your student visa after applying for partner visa, you will get BVE. No Travel right and potentially no Work right on this visa. And don't forget the processing time for your partner visa to get finalized can take around 2 years.
