Spouse visa info

Hi all,

I'm a new member in this forum but I have been following this thread for the last 2 weeks as a visitor. All ur comments and advice has been so helpful in keeping myself sane while I waited for my spouse visa which was FINALLY granted today :)

I actually created an account today just so I could make this post, hoping that it could help anyone out there.

My visa details are as follows:

DOL 22nd Dec 2014
Medical given with application
Police clearance cert - 4th Jan 2015
Received e-mail that application has been sent to senior officer - 12th Jan

This was our last contact with the case officer. My husband visited me in May 2015. In June 2015, I decided to apply for a 3 months tourist visa. Before doing so, I wrote to the embassy asking if I could apply and they said I could but that it was not guaranteed that i would get it. I was told to inform the embassy (via e-mail) before I left Sri-Lanka and also when I return, as I have to be back in sri-lanka (off-shore) if they are ready to give a decision on my spouse visa while i am in australia.

I went ahead and applied for the visitor visa using form 1419 and my husband gave a sponsor letter together with bank statements, letter of employment etc to support my application. It was approved on 2nd June. I left sri-lanka on 25th June.

I want to clarify that applying for and travelling to Australia while the spouse visa is pending does NOT cause any delay in the processing of the spouse visa. They simply want u to keep them informed of your travel. being with my husband for those 3 months really helped as it was getting so stressful being apart in the 1st yr of marriage.

As requested by them, I mailed the embassy on the day I arrived in Sri Lanka (23rd Sept). I only got an auto reply to this e-mail and I was anxiously waiting for more news regarding the spouse visa as I knew writing to them about a status update etc would be pointless.

I was thinking of sending out an e-mail anyway this coming monday but received the visa grant this morning :) the whole process took 10 months .

I know i've rambled on about the whole process i went through but i wrote it all out in case someone will find it helpful. reading through this thread in the past 2 weeks has been great as it puts things in perspective and its nice to know that u arent alone in this anxiety filled journey!

wishing the best of luck to all those who are still waiting for their visas! :):)

Hi Everyone

Is there anyone applied around May 2015. I lodged my application online on 30th May 15. CO requested medical and PC on 18th July 15 and lodged the police clearance on 27th August. I haven't heard anything since then. will my application be delayed due to the late submission of police clearance.

please let me know if anyone in similar timelines
thank you

Hi, Happy news... Got the Visa. - 8.5 months

04 Feb 2015: Application Submitted
10 Feb 2015: Medical Submitted
05 Mar 2015: Police Clearance Submitted
19 May 2015: Received a mail “An initial assessment has now been completed. Your application will be reviewed by a senior officer within the next 7-8 months. The standard processing period for Partner visas is 12 months.”
28 Sep 2015: Applied for Visitor Visa thinking it is going to take 12+ months, so that I can be there for my Birthday which is coming in a month.
16 Oct 2015: Visitor Visa Refused.
19 Oct 2015: Got a call from Embassy asking what is happening.
21 Oct 2015: Received Partner Visa Grant Mail.

However, I have paid for few expensive courses and booked for some exams in December thinking that the visa is not going to come any soon. Will have to decide. Thank you for all who have been participating in this discussion. Your contribution has always been a support through out this waiting period.
