Hi everyone.
Hope all is well

My wife received a phone interview on 21/July/2020 , on 28/July I received an email requesting for a new AFP certificate,

I obtained the AFP cert and uploaded to our Immi Account on 13/8,

So now it has been 3 weeks but I haven't heard or receive any emails for our Case Officer.
We wonder how long it normally takes for the Case Officer to check our application again and do we need to send the department an email to inform them that we have already uploaded the required AFP doc?

Thank you kindly in advance

hi guys i am new to this forum .my wife applied her 309 visa from mauritius (pretoria office) in April 2019.

In dec 2019 she came to visit me in australia on a visitor visa and she was stuck here in australia until august 2020 because of covid 19 .

Last week she went back to mauritius on a repatriation flight.

i was trying to get her to stay in australia and wait for her 309 visa .but i heard some rumors saying that if she made an offshore application she will have to be out of australia to be granted the visa .

I would like to know if there is anyone who is in the same situation like us .its nearly 17 months and we are still waiting . pls share .
Unfortunately yes. She has to be offshore for them to grant visa. That's the main condition of 309. Waiting from same office(12 months).Someone from this forum got 309 from pretoria office during lockdown. So, hopefully ours soon. Cross fingers!

Does anyone know of a similar email address to contact for other states (VIC, NSW?) or for applicants in the United States?

Thanks!
You can email that address and they forward it accordingly. Make sure your enter a reference number. I've done it from VIC.

Hi all.

My wife applied for 309 on April 2019 and came to Australia at the end of 2019 on Visitor 600 visa. She was just told to leave Australia before pandemic as her visa was ready to be granted but was not able to leave Australia for the last 6 months. As it seems there is no way for 309 visa holders rather than being outside of Australia, we have decided to book a flight for her to leave Australia.

However, it seems it is not easy to find tickets to return to Australia because of the current cap on incoming travelers. Airlines are cancelling the booked tickets and ask them to bump it to business class. Even Qatar airways stopped to accept booking to Australia few days.

I could see someone posted a youtube of their return to Australia (thanks for that by the way!) But how is it in General? Has anyone faced difficulty returning to Australia recently?

Thanks.

Read the immigration homepage.
The government says 15-22 months.
Some take less time, some take more time. That's the way it is.

hello

my wife receive this biometric/medicall assessment request when we apply for 309/100 visa. Because in this medical sheet says it is for 100 visa does that mean case assessor is looking to grant 309 and 100 together at once or?

I'm not sure, but I wonder how they expect you to do that when the Bio centres are closed?

Where are you? What is your timeline?

Great news if they are looking at your application. Or is this an automated email? Did you only just submit?

Interesting. All of the VFS centres for Australian visa processing are closed so I don't see how they expect you to provide this.

You received the email in February?

Potentially, sometimes if you have been together for a few years they can. Hopefully someone with some direct experience can assist you here. Good news and good luck!
