Wow! That's super lucky you quickly got your visitor visa approved. In cases like this I don't understand why they wouldn't just grant the 309 and be done with it?

When did you get your RFI? Once they ask for the updated ppc and passport I believe you get it not long after that. It has happened with some cases here on this forum.

Yes, seems very promising!

Did you apply onshore or offshore? Are you onshore on a visitor visa?

QUOTE=Qadi91;1974957]I applied in March 3 .. 2019
309\100 hoping to grant the 100 visa after the 309 and I'm onshore now so they might send me an email to leave the county to grant my visa.
Getting serious .. ��
[/QUOTE]

Yeah I applied for visitor 600 to travel with my daughter and wife, as my wife has to be back to work and I will be staying at home father ..
I applied offshore from Jordan in March and then in June I decided I will get a visitor 600 and they grant it to me in 13:7:2019
I had an RFI
* passport renewal
* colored non-conviction
I send did everything she asked me for. Even she send me another email she is still waiting my things to come through before uploading it..
I hope it happens before Xmas so we can celebrate it ..[/QUOTE]

Thanks all.

We have applied for the 309/100.

Origin: Sponsor India, Applicant Sri Lanka, Applied from Dubai so it was processed from the Beirut office.

Applied ourselves, no agent, but everyone on here has been of great help.

Does anyone know how long the embassy will close over the christmas holidays?
It doesn't have any information about closure dates on their website.
My guess would be like most government departments they'll be closed from 25 December- 2 January. I don't expect to see much movement visa wise from mid December to mid January though because it's a popular time to take annual leave.
Plus the Australian Embassy in Beirut are advertising for a lot of staff at the moment so it looks as though they're short staffed.

Yes i saw that on their website. it could be understaffed, or that they had a really slow few months recently and want to finalise as many applications as possible (optimistic thinking). Either way atleast they are operating, thank god! The deadline for the job adverts is tomorrow, so hopefully we'll hear something before Christmas. If not then the new year, as i hear they do hand out alot in early jan.

I like your optimism! Yes, let's hope they're employing a heap of staff to get through the backlog of applications!

Oh yay! Alf Mabrook! That is fantastic news! Good to hear, police checks and medicals were not needed to be re-submitted.

How long have they given you to enter Australia by?
