Would appreciate it if you guys could enlighten us.
Sept 2009 we lodge our application (subclass 300) in Dubai, UAE including those required documents as advised by our migration agent in Sydney. January 2010 we got married & on March 2010 we sent proof of our marriage (pics, invoices, marriage certificate) & other documents hoping that they will convert our current application (Subclass 300) to Subclass 309. August 2010 they requested us to take the medical & on Oct 2010, medical & police clearance (2nd request already) were sent. Just wondering what took them so long? considering that they told us it will only take for 9-12months. We tried to email them but often time they are not replying, we called them & we were told that the application is still on process. Please advise us. thanks

It is likely that if your application had not been considered in the initial period prior to you marrying that the processing would have only started after that date.
People from high risk countries can be subject to getting an external security check that can normally take about six months but of late it could even be longer because of resources being used up on people smuggling issues.
