Hi! Mark I was overstayed my student visa in 2016 and left Australia with BVE. I have just applied for 309 offshore partner visa through Migration agent in June 2018. My agent submitted a 600 visitor visa for me on the 8 August 2018. She has just told me that she received a letter from a case officer about PIC 4014 Public criteria and asking for compelling and compassionate reasons. I paid huge amount of money
to my agent. She did not tell me the truth that she submitted for a wrong waiver. I have read and found that you have been helping a lot of people on Australiaforum. Is it possible for you to help me? Any Advice ? Thanks

I have been on this forum sometime back, about my daughter whom I wanted to come in on a 461 visa. Now she eventually came in on a student visa which is expiring end of March 2019. Now that she is living with me, coming to the end of her course, can I extend her stay using the 461 visa. She is 27, works about 15hrs a week, I pay her school fees and upkeep. So basically she is still dependent on me. Can this be a viable option?
Many thanks

Transitioning from Student Visa to Partner Visa

Hi Mark,

I would really appreciate any information you have about mine and my partner's current visa situation.

My partner is from Colombia and is currently on a student visa until 2021. We are also living together, and have registered our relationship in NSW. Very soon, we would like to apply for a partner visa. At the moment the cost of living is very difficult due to his work limitations and the high costs of study, so ideally, we would like him to be on another visa ASAP.

I understand if he cancels his student visa once he applies for a partner visa, his bridging visa will also be cancelled and he will get a bridging visa E and will need to apply for work rights. So doing that isn't really an option.

Therefore, I have two main questions:

1. If he cancels his student visa, and then we apply for the partner visa before the 28 day period after cancellation ends, will he get the bridging visa? Is there any issues in doing this?

2. Our other option is to apply offshore and live in Colombia while we await the partner visa to be approved. If he cancels the student visa, and we both return to Colombia and apply from there, would this be ok? Do you think there will be any issues with our approval given the cancelled visa? If we get married in Colombia, will this change the process at all?

Thank you so much for your assistance!

Hi Mark,

So happy to hear that you're willing to help regarding visa inquiries. I hope you could help me with this one.

I am currently holding a Student Visa and will be planning to apply for Temporary Graduate Visa soon. I just got married last year and my husband is currently residing in Singapore (offshore). Can we lodge my 485 application together? Or should it really be separate? If so, how soon can I lodge his application?

Thank you so much for any help you can provide.

Hi Mark,

I lodged my 190 visa on 10-April-2018 and till today I haven't receive any update, neither CO contact or grant. I started to be little worried as all people I personally know who applied before and after me already got their visas.

My question are, what is the average wait time for grant for visa 190? and what factors can make two applicants with the same job code and almost same everything (nationality, points,etc...) have different waiting time?

Hi mark, thanks in advance for your answers,
So i was notified in june by my private school in perth, that i was at risk of visa cancellation due to unsatisfactory course progress, They did a new COE ending on the 6th of september (in 10 days) so they i could still study. I got an email today and i think they want , again, to extend my visa till probably january . Now as i don't want to be on a student visa anymore , if i refuse they might cancel my visa.
Can they cancel it a week before the visa expires naturally ? Problem is i'm ready for a de facto application and i don't know what to do , BVE is not an option for me ... thanks

Hi Mark,

I am waiting for invite for 189 Visa in Software engineer. I have started my career as Software engineer and continued as a software engineer in first 2 companies. But when i came to Australia I was promoted to higher role as a System analyst and continuing as System analyst (Techofuntional role) since last 3 years Now My roles and responsibilities are a techno-functional role which requires both Software engineering and System analysis. My Australia experience is system analyst.
Now last month i had done my ACS with software engineering job code for which i got positive ACS response. Now I have below queries for filing 189.

a) I have completed 3 years in Australia . Can i claim Australia experience point in EOI (Can this experience will be considered as Progression Career pathway because i started career with software engineer and after 8 years i become system analyst).
b) Will DIBP consider my Australia experience 10 points if those are under System analyst but approved by ACS in software engineer. I have roles and responsibilities approved the letter.
c) Have you heard any rejection due to this mismatch by DIBP?
d) In case of rejection will there be ban for few years?

Hi Mark,
I’m so confuse. I’m applied partner visa last 2 years. My bridging visa granted on 26 August 2016. I read somewhere that you have to wait around 18-22 months to approve for you second stage? My bridging visa is type A and subclass 010. It’s because I can’t travel I applied visa B for visit my family around May this year. My question is today is 27 August 2018. It’s already 2 years. Should I contact the immi or should I wait lil bit longer?
Hope to hear you soon,
Many thanks and I apreaciate your answer.
