I'm trying to find someone who applied for spouse visa 309 from Sri Lanka so I can get an idea of the timeline for the process.

Hi,

I applied on feb 27th 2012, case officer wrote to me on 22nd may asking for medicals and further docs, I submitted them all on 11th July( delay was due to being overseas and I did the medicals in Aus which delayed the results). Today I received an email that a decision has been made. It doesn't say visa is granted. But they have asked for my passport. So I am hoping it's positive. It's taken six months now.

Hi Buddhini86,

I also applied from Sri Lanka. Partner visa sub class 309. What happened to you? Did you receive the visa? Pls share your experiences.

Best regards,

I heard most 309 files are sitting in a long queues untill they finish the ones on top of yours. have you lodge your medicals? did you both wrote personal letters and ask for a interview?

I did my medicals in january.we didnt ask for interviews but we submitted our personal letters.Im scared that this might drag up to 12 months as advertised.many friends of mine got their visa's in 3 months.

You should ve request for a interview cause then you can talk to them and talk about your situation. and its really depends on how good your case file is. they dont even care if you married if you dont have certain documents. was yiu file big? did you gave lots of pictures and reference from people who knoe about your marriage?
