AAT Partner Visa review waiting time

14834 Views 35 Replies 16 Participants Last post by  Marco1422
Hi all,

Long time looker, first time poster.

My wife and I have been married for 2 years. We applied for her subclass 309 temporary partner visa in late 2016 and subsequently got refused in mid 2017.

We applied for an AAT review immediately after and are still waiting for a hearing.

What else are others experiencing and how long is it taking the department to process cases after they have been remitted?

Also, has anyone had any luck in having their case review without a hearing?

Best wishes to you all!

Why did you get denied? What were their reasons?
I am glad it went well!!

Hi all.

Just a quick update 😊 The AAT review hearing is done and dusted. The tribunal member made an oral decision at the hearing and remitted the application back to the department with direction that we satisfy the clauses outlined in the decision record. Also received the decision record of the hearing today stating that it has officially been remitted.

I know this still isn't 100% a done deal, but it is definitely a step in the right direction and we're so happy about the outcome.

Generally, how long are most cases taking now to be processed after being remitted? I know that all cases are different and many things come in to play when considering this, but If someone could maybe provide their personal experiences it'd be much appreciated 😊
