Hoping someone out there can help me....lol
I am an Australian who married a Moroccan.
As far as our file goes I feel really satisfied with it.
My problems are with time frames,what to expect and should I attend the interview?
I hope someone can offer some light on this for me as I CAN'T find anyone who has successfully applied for this visa from MOROCCO.
This is a tired,stressed and soon to be crazy woman begging.

I'm currently in Morocco (only for a few more days)
just about to come home
everything I read seems to confuse me...lol
all different responses. Talked to the embassy the other day and they told me a few things which drove me crazy. I do have some questions
Have you had to lodge the medical yet?
did they give you an idea of time frames? I ask because of the stupid high risk thing
have you had any type of interview?
love to hear anything you can tell me
mad australian woman here...lol
cheers Susie

We live in his country - Brazil. It's been tough to say the least. Our application was received on 8 Jan 2010. We were assigned a case-officer about 2 weeks later by email and told the average wait is 6 months. One month after we lodged the application we were contacted by email giving my husband a date for interview (this wk coming) and were requested to undergo the medical exams and provide criminal certs. We were also told in that email that it can take up to 6 wks for the medicals to be 'cleared' in Aus. That's all we can say at this stage. What about you where are you at with yours? Mad Australian woman number 2 here...so don't worry your not alone

All I can suggest Susie is that you just let the process run its course.
There are indicative processing times re HR/LR countries and though every application is assessed against the same criteria, there are many different variables and so you can end up with significant differences in processing times.

The main thing to start with is ensuring you have a well presented, complete and accurate application in and you're happy with that part and that's all you can do.

For what it's worth, the Immi Processing service standards are on Client Service Charter

Hey Cosbo,

My partner is from Brazil also, he is about to submit our application in the next couple of weeks in Brasilia. We haven't been able to decide whether he can complete his medical before they actually request it. Do you know if that's possible or will we have to wait until they ask for it?

We want to submit a complete application - as we will be in thailand in april and want to have everything submitted by then. Also, did your husband submit form 80 too?

Oh its great to know someone else is doing this from Brazil :) So they think it will take 6 months?! We were so hoping for something sooner. Keep us updated I'd love to see how your going with it. Mad Australian woman #3 here!!! xo

As a general rule Ems there's no specific regulation to say do not front load [ as some call it ] your application with medical and police check.

Actually, I've got a vague recollection of another partner visa applicant from Brazil about 6-12 months back, so if you go and search back as far as about May/June last year you could come across another with experience from there too.

Oh great thanks heaps Wanderer, it would be much more convenient for us if we can submit a completed application.

I've hunted a bit already - but I'll have a look at those search dates thanks :)

One other query we have - we are sending in photocopies of everything (bank statements / cards to each other / lease / letters from landlord / stat decs etc) - originals of police certs though. My question is - do the photocopies need to be certified, or is it just 'official' documents like passport, birth cert, citizenship etc. that need to be certified?

I read that elkitten certified just official docs, I just wanted to get a second opinion - as I think we should get everything certified just in case?

Cheers for any info!

It's a fair while since I was actually involved myself in an application Ems but I seem to recall it would have been only the official stuff where you keep originals yourself that we certified copies for sending [ as Immi advises ].

Bank statements are hard to fake and seeing as you'll hardly ever want it again yourself, include the original and keep a copy for yourself if you like and likewise lease, letters and stat. declarations [ put the original in and keep a copy ] and with cards to oneanother they're really just a secondary support and if they're sentimental value, keep them but hardly a need to certify a copy.

Brazillians magmelb81 P2 on Sticky did a PMV - quite quick that one.
Might have been another one though could be thinking of someone from Latin Americas that had to use USA.

Hi Susie,
I hope you progress well with the application and now you have 5 posts up you should be able to PM Trisher [ Just click on her name at her post and you'll get an options box ].
Trisher btw also posted about her case has been dragged out and now has gone to the tribunal so I wish her well too.

Sorry also about supporting the hijacking of your thread, something I'm trying to have members avoid.

Best wishes:)

Susie I am Australian, my partner is Moroccian, we are 3/4 way through our process. I am in Australia and will have my interview tonight via phone. Cairo is a very slow process. We submitted and it accepted in Cairo 24th July 2009. We have had to cancel wedding dates twice so far. Partner had his interview 23rd December 2009.

So be prepared for a long sit.

Dear Trishher
I think Cairo is very difficult to deal with. My partner was asked why we didnt get married in Morocco. He replied that is the option. Received phone call this morning, stating my interview has been put on hold as the guy is here in australia, and the secretary will now reschedule another interview with me from her. So more waiting games as per normal. Just hope after all this we get a positve result.
hang in there annie123

sorry to hear that annie.its crazy you cant have your meeting because he is here.was your the meeting with the tribunal.my husband applied for a tourist visa that also was refused I am thinking now maybe its because the tribunal hearing is in 2 weeks.

I am here cheering you on

trishher,
No Cairo required for both to have interview. Partners was 23rd December, mine was supposed to be here tonight via phone. My partner also has tourist visa denied a few years ago. So really I have no idea. My bro met and married a Thai lady - 3 months from go to woe.
