Can my Student Visa application be continued from another embassy?

I lodged my student visa application at the Australian Embassy in Singapore on 10 December. I have a work pass to work in Singapore but I am neither a Singaporean citizen or PR. I will cease employment in about 2 weeks and my work pass will be cancelled by the employer. The Australian embassy in Singapore is currently processing my visa application and has asked for my degree and transcript in original script. I will need to go back to my home country to obtain this. I am also obliged to return to my home country as the Singaporean work pass will be cancelled soon.

Can my visa application be continued from my home country or do I need to start from scratch from my home country? My course starts on 7 February 2011. What do I need to tell the Australian Embassy in Singapore?

Any assistance would be much appreciated!

Once you have an application in, it can be processed while you are somewhere else but you'll just need to get any information they require to them in Singapore.
You should advise them of your situation and need to leave Singapore and you can do that with submitting a Form 1022 which will also enable you to update your address which will need to be done anyway.

Thanks Wanderer. Hopefully that makes things abit easier.

Also, do you know whether I can appoint an exempt agent (using Form 956) at any time? It will be easier for the embassy to communicate with my agent once I get back to my home country.

Yes, you can appoint an agent if that is necessary for you.

May I ask you what is your home country you are constantly referring to? Maybe it can be helpful in the future.

As an update to my situation, my job obligations in Singapore are now preventing me from being in a position to commence a Tafe course starting in February. I told the Australian embassy officer about my situation and asked whether it is possible to defer my visa application for July entry instead. The officer told me it was not possible, I have to withdraw my current student visa application and apply again from Myanmar.

Does anyone know the general process/timeline of applying for a student visa from Myanmar or an assessment level 3 country? I will be returning to Myanmar at the end of February.

Student visas do not usually take all that long to be processed and though there are different financial requirements based on what country a person is from, that would have applied with your initial application no matter where you were when it was applied for so you could use that as a guide.
