When you already have a visa

You want to withdraw a visa application

​If we have not yet granted the visa

To withdraw a visa application, complete Form 1446 Withdrawal of a visa application.

If your application is in ImmiAccount, attach the completed form to your application. Otherwise, email the completed form to the place processing your application.

Withdrawing as a sponsor of a former partner or spouse

If your relationship ends, you can withdraw as the sponsor of their visa. Write us a letter that includes:

  • your full name and date of birth

  • transaction reference number (TRN) or file reference number (FRN) for the application

  • a statement that you withdraw sponsorship from the Partner visa application

Email the letter to the place processing your application.

Removing an online application from ImmiAccount does not withdraw it. You must tell us in writing that you no longer want to sponsor your former partner or spouse.

If we have granted the visa

You cannot withdraw an application after we have granted the visa. All you can do is apply for a different visa.

Withdrawing as a sponsor of a former partner or spouse

If we have already granted a permanent or temporary partner visa, you cannot withdraw as the sponsor of that visa.
