They are requested to change the subclass and pay 555 dollars only. They did not request from them anything else
That's a good option, and much better than paying for an AAT. I think that's about $1,800 + any agents costs, and takes ages.

Not even sure an AAT would even be successful.

If they moved out partner visas to Amman embassy as what it used to be before 12/2018 it would've been easier to get the grant soon.
I feel it's not fair I'm Jordanian, and getting effected by the protesters in Lebanon..
Yep! Its unfair, my partner is Egyptian and living in UAE and now affected by Lebs protesting!

Has anyone contacted their agent to see if the embassy has contacted them to advise about their closure? We are only going off what the Facebook post of the embassy’s page. We contacted our agent, but he has not returned our calls and messages as per usual!

If anyone is dealing with an agent, might be worth seeing what’s going on and sharing with us here on the forum

TIA
It’s been 6 months today since DOL!

According to the embassy's FB page, it was closed on the 22nd, and starting the 23rd, it will remain closed until further notice. Their website has the same message posted right on the front page. I believe it has been closed since the 17th or 18th and will remain closed until the situation improves, hopefully soon insha'Allah.

I think the officially closed on the 23/10- because i know someone who got their visa on that day. That was the last i hear of anything coming from the embassy in lebanon.

Is it true that our applications may be processed elsewhere due to embassy being closed? I really hope our applications are being sent to another country because it’s sad to think since the protests in Lebanon that our applications are just sitting there. Such wasted time, but hopefully that’s not the case. 🙏

If you're using an agent - try ask them they would have received some correspondence if this was the case? I've asked our agent and to no surprise I haven't heard back from him. The only concern is if that's the case it may even prolong our waiting period more, so hoepfully it's not true.

I agree that it’s unfair our applications will be affected because of the protesting. Given all applications are electronic these days surely immigration staff in Australia could fill the void until the embassy reopens in Beirut. Hopefully they can continue working on our applications soon.

I saw on the news that the banks will reopen this coming Friday. I think that men's the embassy should open also ??
I just looked it up, turns out the banks opened yesterday however the embassy's official website still shows as "closed until further notice".

If anyone get any correspondence from the Beirut embassy please share it here as we are all obviously very anxious of the unknown. I have emailed the embassy but no response as yet.
