Student Visa to Defacto Visa

Hi All,

I am planning to apply for an onshore defacto visa next month, and I am wondering what would happen to my current student visa if my application was rejected.

I am currently studying my undergraduate degree and still have at least one more semester to go before I graduate. I was just wanted to make sure that when my application is being processed, I am still on my current student visa and therefore entitled to continue studying?

If my application is rejected (which I am hoping it won't be!) and I have not yet finished my degree, does my student visa still remain valid until I complete my course?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

You may have to ring immigration for this one. I really have no idea.

My feeling is that the only reason your student visa would get cancelled is when your defacto visa is approved. Because you cannot have 2 visas at once. But if your defacto visa is rejected, technically your student visa should still be in effect because by applying for defacto you didnt withdraw your student visa.

You should still ring them though :-)

Hi there,

If your partner visa app. is declined, they can't then take your student visa off you unless you have violated the conditions of the student visa, i.e. by not studying.
