Was that just the 309 granted, or both 309 and 100?All,
While I followed this forum for the last few months in support of my 309 application; I wanted to make sure I contribute and share my timeline.
Circumstances are Defacto, relationship nearly 3 years. Living in London
I immediately (within first week) uploaded all evidence, medicals and police checks.
Grant notification was received yesterday - 10/1/20.
I have not received any communication between DOL and date of grant.
Congratulations! May I know roughly what time you have received email for the grant ? Thanks ....Yay! Received 2 golden emails 309 and 100 today! My timeline as below:
DOL : 27th Apr 2019
Biometrics : 22nd May 2019
PCC : 25th May 2019
Medical : 27th July 2019
Grant : 13th Jan 2020, Kuala Lumpur
Background : Married for 12 years with 2 kids.
No emails or communication from the case officer except to request me to leave Australia. I left on 11/01/2020 and granted on 13/01/2020.
The 2nd stage is much easier, especially as most of the original form filling is exactly the same as stage 1.Im confident enough that I could complete the 100 submission myself but guess my confusion is also around the breakdown of fees. eg. Why the $2200 for the 1st part and $1100 for the 2nd?
It's quite easy to do it yourselfCurious to know if anyone else has had a similar experience...
We went via an agent for our 309/100 application. Paid our fee ($2200) to engage them, we are now coming to the 100 stage and we have been told that they will charge another $1100 to complete that part (or we can set up an Immi and complete ourselves).
Their terms are pretty ambiguous tbh, they simply mention "fee for the application" and I have been told that they treat the 309 and 100 as separate applications however we never were told that the 2 stages would be treated as 2 apps from their end.
Has anyone else experienced this? If we have to pay, I guess shame on us for not asking to clarify but at the time we were under the impression it was for both parts seeing as it is really only 1 application with 2 parts, not 2 separate apps. Im confident enough that I could complete the 100 submission myself but guess my confusion is also around the breakdown of fees. eg. Why the $2200 for the 1st part and $1100 for the 2nd?
Lesson learnt for the future perhaps!
https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/contact-us/telephone/outside-australiaDo you have the number for immigration please? I will be calling from the UK. Thank you. XHi Guys
Just a quick update from for the Form 40SP question.
I rang the department of Immigration just to clarify my Form 40SP question and according to them, follow the steps as outlined below. A lady answered the call and was very helpful, she asked me to login to immi account and explained the whole process.
1.Fill out the forms and pay/lodge the visa 309. Note here, there applicant is my partner and I am the sponsor.
2. Once you have lodged it, you get a TRN Number. It is also there on the Letter of Acknowledgement.
3. Create another immi account on the name of the sponsor (myself).
4. Create a new application.
5. Go to 4th Option > Family and click on "Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia (300,309/100,820/801)"
6. Fill out the form and upload the documents.
Pretty sure you guys knew most of this already but just a good information to have.
Thanks for the help guys.
In practice they do seem to to ask. But I have seen a notice on the immigration website that says they can finalise a visa application at any time based on what has been provided.Even if you forget to upload something all they would do is ask for it to be submitted.
There's not really any risk here.
In my wife's application, the status did not change. We did however notice that the estimate for the length of processing increase.Hello Laura,
I can give you few answers of your questions based on my experience. I pray that you get a different and better experience
It is totally fine if you get one submitted and one received, do not worry about that, sometimes from received it can directly go to grant as well
-As far as CO is concerned, you don't get nay email if a CO has been allocated. You will get a correspondence from them only if they require more information or if they want you to have an interview, which will be at a very near stage of the GRANT.
The best thing to have is directly a GRANT, coz if they keep asking you more information, the longer your application will take to be granted
-It depends, some people do get it in 2 to 4 months, I haven't received anything and its been 8 months.
-You are more than welcome to contact them, most probably they will say its within their global processing time, or will tell you that it is being processed. However, do not believe in things that says that if you enquire it delays your Decision. Do not trust that,
