Cancelling student visa, applying to claim DASP and re-applying for another student visa

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I wanted to ask regarding visa cancellation. I am on a  student visa and want to cancel it as I will be transferring universities in the near future. While my visa is cancelled, i intend to apply for my superannuation (DASP) from outside Australia. So my question is, if I do apply to claim my superannuation, can I still apply for my new student visa and return to Australia after the claim? And if so, can I apply for my new student visa within the 28 days it takes for my superannuation processing time?

 

Thanks in advance, 

Sarah

I would recommend waiting until you have received the refund. As you are aware to be eligible you need to be outside of Australia and your visa must have expired or canceled. If you subsequently apply for another visa, which is then granted and the DASP has not been processed, then I can see this causing you all sorts of problems.

If the DASP has been finalised, then I cannot see any reasons why this would prevent you from applying for a further visa. However, applying for a further visa before the DASP is finalised is a very bad idea. Not only do you sign a declaration on the DASP application form, but you are advised that the visa information you provide may be checked against information held by the Department of Home Affairs. Your application may take longer if your information does not match information held by them.
