Hi
This is Behzad, my wife applied for prtner visa on 8th of March 2018 from Tehran office in Iran and her case is tranferred to Beirut office on 19th of June. On 10th of July, we received an email from Beirut office that our application is transferred abd we will be in touch within the processing time. However, the processing time has changed to 21 to 26 months alternatively. This really freaks us out, how come we can be apart feom each other for two years?
Is it even possible?

I was thinking of applying for tourist visa during this period, is it possible to apply for a tourist visa and wait for the decision on this partner visa? When the visa is granted she can easily be overseas, since the applicant should be out of australia for the grant of this visa.

Hi Behzad,

I am in the same situation, I logged my wife's application in may and "story of my luck" visa section became no longer functional in Iran. !!!!

I have asked my lawyer to send an Email to ask how everything is going! they dont answer properly! very cliche'

Hi abdoal,
Good that you have heard something at least. I assume they started to process the applications as the pricessing time is decreased from 26 months to 13 months, which is a good news.
When did you apply? And which office tdis you apply through? When your application transferred to beirut office? And when your status is changed? Could you share those?

Hi all, has anyone recieved a request for more information from Beirut office?

I have received a request for more info with a lot of items on the check list, basically all of the required documents for the visa are there and they all say “if not already provided”.
I’m really confused about what it is they actually want more info about.

We have already uploaded all necessary documents and police checks and medical.
