Hi guys. Newby here. I’m from the Philippines, me and my partner got married on Dec 2020 in Sydney, our partner visa 309 was lodge on november 2021, last week we receive a S56 request for further information. They’re are asking for certificate of no marriage from here in the Philippines (CENOMAR) and AFP (police check) which I have sent upon lodgement and they want another one. Both request was provided last week and been uploaded to immi account.

Question:
Normally, How long it will take the decision after the S56 RFI was provided? Thanks guys

From what I recall, the NSO must send the CENOMAR directly to the Australian Embassy in Manila, same as the birth certificate. It should not be uploaded by the applicant.

That may be why they are asking again.

Our subclass 300 visa was granted about 4 months after an RFI.

Thanks @JandE Sorry for not clarifying. We only provide police check upon lodgement not the CENOMAR. Also, we are aware that mostly of PSA request (former NSO) are sent directly to australian embassy but this time it was not stated on the request. Reason being we uploaded it on immi account. Thanks again ☺

Hi All,
My timelines are as below

309 lodged : 7th Oct 2021 ( From India)
Call from Case Officer from New Delhi to submit Sponsorship Letter on Friday 3rd, June 2022
Submitted the Sponsorship letter on Saturday 4th June 2022
309 granted : Wednesday 7th June 2022
100 granted : Wednesday 7th June 2022 ( When i checked the Visa Conditions in Vevo it showed that I have been granted BC/100)
All documents including Police Checks for Australia and India, Medicals etc were either frontloaded or submitted within 1 month of lodging

A brief history of my self. We are married for 11 years now. We migrated to Australia on PR 175 in Jan 2011 but planned to move back to India in 2016. While my wife took the citizenship I decided not to. Our Son was born in Australia in 2013. In 2021 we decided that we should move back to Australia and applied for 309 on October 7th 2021. We received the grant for both 309 and 100 on 7th June 2022 which is today :).
When I got a call from Australian High Commission New Delhi on 3rd June 2022 she asked me if I can submit the sponsorship letter in few hours for which I told I need at least a day as my agent is in Australia. I thought my agent had submitted 40SP :-( while lodging.
She was very polite and explained me the different ways to submit 40SP. It also looked like they wanted to provide the grant as soon as possible. May be they have yearly targets and June 30th is approaching :)

Wish everyone in waiting room all the best and their Visas to be granted as soon as possible.

Thanks
Krish

Where can found those reports of recents months ?
I would like to know more about Thailand timeframe for prospective marriage and partner visa.

me and my partner we are deciding what to apply but some scary timeframe of over 12 months make us feeling we should maybe change plan and living in another country . Living another 12 months or more apart is too hard

Thanks for your answer , what about visa 300?

309 looks good on timeframe but we are very tight on requirements and we would try to avoid risking of losing lot of money

I means I’m try to found recents time frame like January to March if possible on prospect marriage visa for Thailand

A friend of mine got granted for 309/100 yesterday. She would like to share her timeline:

DOI: 30/4/2021
RFI: 6/9/2021 (health exam and Hong Kong Police Check)
Application in progress email: 30/4/2022
309/100 grant: 16/6/2022

She has been married for around 7-8 years with one 4yo girl. She did not upload any documents to update immi during the waiting time.

Cheers

Thanks this is really useful, can anyone request this information via the FOI page or only migration agents? Do you know if this information is published on the home affairs website regularly or is it only provided by request?

Anyone can do a FoI request.
Answers can often take between 1 and 2 months.
They only show global times on their website, normally about a month after the period being reported on.

Hi! Anyone with 300 granted recently? My fiancé and I have been waiting for 7 months and the status of the visa hasn’t been updated. I went to see him last month and updated the application with pictures and flights together. At this point we’re not planning on seeing each other again until the visa is granted bc of the price of the flights ( I’m in Florida). In the application my country of residency is the US but I hold only a Colombian passport. At the time of the application I was in Colombia visiting my family, and biometrics and health examinations where done from there. Would this have any impact in the processing time?

Hello! I hope you’re all well :)
Firstly, congratulations to all for attaining visa’s. It’s definitely an exciting journey.

I’m currently waiting on my Husband’s 309 and it’s been 31 months. I am also having a baby girl next month 😊 I’m really desperate to get him here real soon.

Sorry to bother, but I need hope!😌

I'm in New Zealand (US citizen) and submitted my 309 application on Aug 3. Does anyone know where my application will be processed and how long the processing takes? We used an agent and have completed all necessary health, biometrics, etc. The application says further assessment. Been married for 10 years and have an 8-year-old child. Both Australian citizens.
