Any advice/experience on having HELP debt as a sponsor for a 309 visa? Currently living in the uk and now worried my debt will hurt my partners visa chances

It didn't affect my visa application whatsoever. My partner has HECS and I was granted a 309.

Not to worry, repaying your debt will start again when you get back in the country - or, of course, you could just give them a lump sum to pay it off.
