Hi all

Can I apply for student visa after applying for 189 skilled independent visa? ( student visa by the time I get pr out come) I am planning to do a course.

Pls advice
If your student visa is issued after the 189 visa, then automatically your 189 grant will be cancelled

Cheers

Doing any course on a PR is way cheaper than an Indian. I would wait.

Why do you need to apply for a student visa if you are going to get the PR?

I'd rather wait for the pr grant.

To be eligible for a student visa, you need to meet the Genuine Temporary Entrant criteria where you basically promise that you only intend to move to Australia temporarily for studying and then will return home. If you've already applied for a permanent visa, that would contradict the GTE criteria.
