Yeah when I said them, I m already on 12th month.. and if there would b any requirements how would I know? they simply said that 12 month is just an tentative time not confirmed .. it can take longer than 12 month so just wait.. I also asked about capping or visa grant over for this year they replied the process is slow but we are still processing files it may take longer time.

Did the asked about other requirements?? And did u applied 300 or 309 category?
No, I did not get contacted about allocation of the officer.initials are RS but this is only from the operator that I know.

She said they were prioritizing nepal visas because of recent crisis.Also,she told me case officer does not necessarily contact unless they require anything from you.

I applied 309..

Hi Guys,

My wife's DOL is 13/11/14...we still haven't heard anything from the Australian Embassy in India. It was an online application. Is it true that paper application are being processed quicker than online application?

Any idea when can we expect to hear from them?

Currently she is in Australia and her Indian Phone number is not working for some reason. Does anyone know how to update the contact number in the application as she has an Australian phone number..is that even necessary??

Thanking you in advance.

Ben

write an email to the department requesting to update your contact no.
you have to mention your full name, date of birth, passport no. you can also write your application id no.
you will get a auto generated reply.
but make sure to call them after a week to confirm about your no. update, becoz they wont send an mail back that ur no. has been updated.
this is the email address [email protected]

Hi guys,

Was just reading the thread and read your post and was curious to know how do u differentiate between a complex and simple application? I mean what are the factors that determines complex and simple application? please let me know

Thank you
complex cases could be:
-- if you had any visa refusal or visa cancellation before,
-- if you have overstayed your visa and lived unlawfully in OZ before.
-- if you were on bridging visa E, reasons why you were on that visa.
-- medical conditions
-- if you have already sponsored someone in less than 5 years time.
-- not able to provide appropriate docs at the time of lodgement.
-- if you owe any money to any Australian government body.
-- criminal record.

I could think of these reasons, there could be many more.

Just an update that CO asked for form 80.if anybody has not done this it will be a good idea to have this up already.
Just hoping for the best now.Also they only contacted my lawyer,not me.

Hi
can anyone answer my two doubts please?

When u submit online. u fill online a big form on immigration website, does form 80 is separate from this form or same?
Because form 80 questions are all the same as online form.
also does sponsor need to fill a separate form 40sp or lodging online a form is okay ?

Is form 80 mandatory?
Found this on the website...

Statutory declarations

As part of the character assessment, you might be asked to complete a Character Statutory Declaration (34KB PDF file).

In some instances you might also be required to provide personal details to allow additional character checks to be undertaken. Your case officer might ask you to complete the following form:
•Form 80-Personal particulars for character assessment (611KB PDF file).

If you are applying for a visa outside Australia, you do not have to provide this information with your application. You will be advised when it is required.
If you are applying in Australia, you should provide this information with your application.

Like to add that my wife supplied this in her file:-

Work History
Education history
PCC
Travel movement in 47SP
Passport copy on stamp pages

Does Form 80 still apply??

You may be asked to complete form 80. It tends to be asked more often of applicants from high risk countries, but applicants from low risk countries are also asked. My suggestion is usually to complete it and submit it so you aren't faced with a delay if they do ask for it.

form 80 is a must if u r lodging your file from India. Its doesn't matter whether its online or paper application.(correct me if im wrong).
mine is a paper application with form 80 in the partner visa application check list. like any other mandatory forms (40, 47, 888).

Hi Gm6,

You are correct.

Form 80 is a mandatory form along with 40sp 47sp along with 888 to be completed by two witnesses.. In 309/100 Visa document checklist this is clearly mentioned. Anyone can download the checklist from from Immi website for reference..

Hi Mili,
Form 80 is only for the applicant, I submitted Form 80 with my documents and they dint ask for it from my husband (Sponser) I think u should submit it before CO is assigned, it will save u time because it is one of the mandatory document and they will ask for it for sure.
Also download the document checklist for visa 309/100 from the website. You can use it as reference to check all documents/Forms u haven't submitted yet.. This will save u time n effort of doing it again.. Cheers
