Most applications can be processed in a matter of days, even hours.The application is probably just sitting in a queue somewhere with nothing happening to it and waiting for someone to process it.Is there any way of checking what stage the application is at on the second stage partner visa? My son has tried calling immigration to no avail. If he can get his pr through in next couple of weeks he can save money on something. Any help appreciated.
If there are compelling/ compassionate circumstances,intractable technical problems or obfuscation on the part of the Department, a good MP can contact the Department or use his internal contacts to resolve matters.This is interesting! I was not aware that local MPs can do something about individual migration visas. How do they assist with the process?
