  1. Hi Tee, Thanks for the reply. Do you know if the outstanding 461 visa will affect my current partner's ability to get a 461 as my de facto? My ex and I are on good terms and she would have no issue notifying immigration to cancel if required. Cheers
  2. Hi there, No, not cancelled as such - I never informed immigration - but the visa was never used to enter the country, and will not be in future. Should I just call immigration and have them cancel it? Cheers
  3. Hi there, I've been looking through the threads but can't find anyone in a similar circumstance, so I'm wondering if anyone has any insights. Just over two years ago my ex and I applied for a 461 visa (NZ partner visa) from the UK to move to Australia. I'm a NZ citizen and my ex partner is French. We ended up splitting up before actually moving to Australia, so the visa wasn't used to enter the country. I moved here by myself. I'm now dating a British girl (complicated much!) who's on a 417 working holiday visa. We would be eligible for a de facto visa as we've been together for the requisite amount of time etc, but I'm worried the previous visa might jeopardise our chances. Does anyone know if there's a stand down period? Are you only allowed one within a given time period? I'm thinking the fact that the previous visa was never used to enter Australia must count in our favour, and my ex would write something to say she has no intention of coming over if that would help. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks
