Hi cmc,Hi, wondering if anyone can let me know if this is normal or have a similar situation.
I am an Australian Citizen (born) and my partner is indian national. We have applied for a 309 partner visa on the 4th April 2018.
We have not had any updates, communication or anything from department as if our application has not been seen. I visit India to see my partner as much as possible in between uni and work (every 3-6 months so far).
We applied with police clearance and medicals done so an decision ready application and have applied through an agent.
is this normal to have not heard anything as its coming on 13 months?
I don't think I can provide any advice on your situation, but I can surely make you feel better by saying that I am in a similar boat as of you.
My application too has not been looked into. I applied on 25th of Feb 2018, and status still says received. My husband too is an Australian Citizen and I'm an Indian national.
However my husband was asked to submit his PCC in the month of May 2018, but nothing else. I assume since you may have already provided all the documents they needed, you did not receive this mail.
From what I have understood (I may be wrong), they do an initial check of all applications to see if all standard documents are provided. If not, they request for those documents. Then you need to wait until a case officer is assigned, which can happen immediately or take ages like in our case
Then again, the case officer may or may not contact you for more information, so we will never know when they are assigned.
But please do keep us updated, so people like me and you can feel that we are not alone..
I'm hoping there will be more speedy grants after elections... fingers crossed on that..
