Visa for Bangladeshis are processed in New Delhi.

In the link below, select bangladesh and then read the info. Also in that info click the link of New Delhi.

https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/contact-us/offices-and-locations/list
It appears that visa applications from Bangladesh are processed in Colombo and New Delhi. At least some forum members (from Bangladesh), have received communications from Colombo.
Check this:
https://bangladesh.embassy.gov.au/daca/10.html
Yes, you are right.
Also, it is interesting that a member received some initial communications from Colombo, then he received few communications from Delhi. The same member received communications from two locations.

Great thanks.. also would you know if the visa would be an issue if the sponsor is a PR of Aus but not resided there for the past few years until recently?
As far as I know, that shouldn't be an issue. Have you heard anything from Colombo AHC?

Hi, does anyone know if there is restriction with regards to the sponsor residing offshore while the visa is being processed.

my understanding is that it is not considered an issue for the moment.

any views ?

If the sponsor is a citizen of Australia, definitely no issue, if the sponsor resides offshore. Not sure if the sponsor is a resident. This could depend on the resident status of the sponsor.

Still in the initial assessment stage. How about yours?

Currently further assessment
Any idea what that means
That means your application has reached another stage and can be assumed is processed more than ours. However, this depends on the CO as well. Some COs don't update. In some cases visa has been granted while status is "received".

Has anyone from AHC has contacted you for information?

Hi SLB,

My husbands is also further assessment but we applied in June. Have you done medical and uploaded police clearance too? I thought it automatically moved to further assessment after my hubby did medical

@RG123 do you know whether your friend who received grant in March was in initial assessment or status changed to further assessment?

Same here. Really hope they start granting soon. My agent said they have a Jan application still pending 😞 it's very unpredictable

Not specific to the Colombo center, but there are applications from August 2018 onwards still pending... On a more general note though, recently I've seen Dec 2018 and Jan 2019 applications being processed so the waiting times are very unpredictable..

Congratulations. Now you can be with your partner, hopefully, until partner visa is granted.

Could you please answer few question for the benefit of the others:
1. Which stream did you apply in visitor visa sub class 600? Tourist stream or sponsored family stream
2. What is the length of stay that you have requested in the visitor visa application?
3. What are the reasons for the visit that you have given? e.g. to travel and see the country, to be with partner, to visit other family and friends etc.
4. Is the visitor's visa for a single 12 months long stay or is it multiple entry for shorter durations within one year time period.
5. Is No Further Stay (condition 8503) given on the visa.

Thank you

Medical and PCC not done yet. Two reasons: Due to travel commitments it is hard to do the medical. There is a possibility that medical might expire if it takes a longer time to process. AHC hasn't requested those yet.

Thankyou SLBee!

So just to answer your questions:
1) Applied for the 600 subclass tourist stream. Applied by myself without an agent.
2) In the 1419 form I requested for 3 months but i got a letter from my employer requesting for 5 weeks of leave.
3) Reason was to simply spend time with my husband. We are also celebrating our 3 year wedding anni in Dec so mentioned that as well.
4) its a 1 year multiple entry visa
5) No, that condition was not given.

Hope this helps!
