Well, 10 years ago an onshore Partner visa application fee was 1200 AUS ( I know it from some friends), now its 4000...whats gonna be next??It's a very good way for the australian government to get some money: you want australia? Pay (a lot) for it! They are increasing the costs at an incredible rate.
Has anyone ever been denied a visa without an Internview? Or in other words, should I put the Champagne in the fridge?"Dear Mr ......
An interview won't be required in your case. I will contact you when your application can be finalised."
Very good sign... I think you'll have to celebrate soon, very soon!Just got the following email from my case officer, after I asked about the ongoing procedure.

No news here yet either. Although, she did tell me that the visa will be able to be finalised NEXT month, which I guess would be July, not June...Hi guys,
Haven't heard anything in a while....any good news?
It would be so interesting to know how many case workers there are and how many visas they are currently processing. It would be nice if they had a system you could log onto to see the progress.
The way I remember, you and I have the same CO who is not very talkative, or so I've heard...Well if the stadard procedure is silence then I guess we just have to wait and see what happens...The procedure is... silence (!). I sent a couple of e-mails to my CO asking kindly to inform us which were the next steps and the documents to prepare, but never got any reply. I assume it's their policy. Well I prefer the this "australian way", much better than the "italian way", with a public officer asking you a bribe to get your file processed quicker. Of course it's not always like that, but...
