Withdrawing your application

Withdrawals must be signed by every applicant who is 18 years or older and is included in the visa application. In most cases, any fees you paid cannot be refunded.

You can either:

  • Complete Form 1446 - Withdrawal of a visa application (375KB PDF) and upload it to your immiAccount.
    Note: Removing your application from ImmiAccount does not withdraw it.
  • Send us a letter by post or email that includes:
    • your full name
    • date of birth
    • transaction reference number (TRN) or file reference number (FRN)
    • a statement advising you are withdrawing from both Partner visa (subclass 820) and Partner visa (subclass 801)

If you are on a bridging visa when you withdraw your application or your partner withdraws their sponsor application, the bridging visa remains valid for 28 days.
