Withdrawal of a visa application
Form
1446
Legal requirements
Under section 49 of the Migration Act 1958, an applicant for a
visa may by written notice, withdraw their visa application.
How can I withdraw my visa application or withdraw a
visa application on behalf of another person?
This form can be used to provide written notice for withdrawal of
a visa application. Prior to submitting this form, you should
ensure that you have filled out all of the necessary sections and
signed and dated the declaration.
Withdrawal of a visa application by one applicant (such as the
main applicant) does not constitute withdrawal of the visa
applications of other applicants. Generally written notice of
withdrawal must be given by each applicant.
This form can be used by multiple applicants who made a
combined visa application.
Please either attach the completed withdrawal form within your
ImmiAccount or send to the relevant processing centre. The
address of the relevant processing centre dealing with your
application can be obtained from the application
acknowledgement correspondence sent to you. If the relevant
processing centre has not been specified please send to your
nearest office of the Department.
Who can withdraw a visa application?
Any applicant who has made a visa application.
Any persons with clear authority to act on the applicant’s
behalf (eg. a migration agent).
If the applicant is under 18 years of age, a parent or guardian
must sign this form on their behalf.
Application status
Once a visa application has been withdrawn, no further action
can be taken on the withdrawn application. If a person wants to
be considered for a visa in the future, they will need to make a
new visa application.
All remaining applicants in the combined visa application (if any)
will continue to have a visa application that must be considered.
Your immigration status (for applicants in Australia) after
withdrawal of your visa application
If you hold a bridging visa that was granted before 19 November
2016, in association with the application being withdrawn, that
bridging visa will cease to be in effect 28 calendar days from the
date of the withdrawal.
If you hold a bridging visa that was granted on or after
19 November 2016, in association with the application being
withdrawn, that bridging visa will cease to be in effect 35 calendar
days from the date of the withdrawal.
Unless you are the holder of another visa or you have been
granted Australian citizenship, you will be an unlawful non-citizen
and subject to immigration detention and removal from Australia.
Application charge
The visa application charge already paid for by an applicant
applies regardless of the visa application outcome.
There are very limited circumstances in which a refund may be
given. For information about refunds please refer to form 1424
Refund request.

Part E – Declaration
WARNING: Giving false or misleading information is a serious offence.
9 I declare that:
all information provided in this form is true and correct.
I acknowledge that:
after the visa application has been withdrawn, the application is
taken to have been disposed of, and no further consideration will be
given to it.
I understand that:
if I am the holder of a bridging visa granted before 19 November
2016, my bridging visa that was granted in association with the visa
application, will cease 28 calendar days from the date my visa
application is withdrawn.
if I am the holder of a bridging visa granted on or after 19 November
2016, my bridging visa that was granted in association with the visa
application, will cease 35 calendar days from the date my visa
application is withdrawn.
if I am in Australia and I am not the holder of another visa or have not
been granted Australian citizenship, I will be an unlawful non-citizen,
subject to immigration detention and removal from Australia after my
visa application is withdrawn and my bridging visa ceases.
withdrawing my application will not automatically entitle me to a refund
of the visa application fee.
