Hey everyone! :)

I have lodged my 309 Partner visa on the 1st of Nov 2017 from Saudi Arabia. (I'm Egyptian though)

This morning I have received an email from DIBP requiring myself (applicant) and my sponsor which also happens to be my wife (I mean, obviously!) to provide them with police clearances from all countries we've lived in for the past 10 years.

Based on your past experiences, would you guys say this can mostly be the last stage of our visa processing?

Cheers,

No, this is usually one of the first stages of the partner visa. Alot of embassies are waiting a couple of months to request police checks and medicals so the applicant has longer to make their first entry into Australia.

Salam alekom my brother
I am also from Egypt, living in Saudi Arabia with my Australian wife.
i will be applying for partner visa next month (inshaallah) and I would appreciate learning from your experiences regarding the application process. Is it possible for us to communicate directly?

Actually they asked for the medical reports & the fingerprints the second day after lodging the application
It is probably in their procedures for Saudi they ask for them after lodging. I know Egypt asks for police and medicals straight after lodging but USA and UK are usually around 3 months after lodging. Each embassy has their own procedures but alot wait a few months as entry is based on the medicals and police checks.

Asking for police checks is no indication that it is almost finished. It is all a wait and see thing.

Immigration need to conduct mandatory security checks in all countries you have lived in prior to the grant of the visa.

We don't see alot from Saudi here so no idea what their processing times are compared to other countries.

Please let us know when grant though as it would be good to know what people from Saudi can expect in processing times.
