Going on Vacation whilst Partner visa Pending

Hi,

I've posted on this forum before so some members might be aware of my situation.

My partner is Russian so our partner visa application has gone through the Russian DIAC branch. The application was submitted in April this year and we are still waiting to hear the result of the application. Its now been 6 and half months...

I'm told it is a 7-12 month wait!

I'm going abroad to meet my partner for a week's vacation as it has been along time being apart.

Should I let my case officer know that we are meeting up for a week? Do they really even care about this?

If your partner was visiting Australia, it would be an issue since she can't be onshore if the visa is granted.

But, since you are not meeting in Australia I don't think you would have to notify immi though a quick e-mail just to let them know anyway can't really hurt. Who knows, it might urge them to look at your application again even if it's just briefly.

Cool. Yeah we are both meeting in Thailand for a week's vacation.

I sent immi an email along with our flight/hotel itinerary.

Yeh I thought the same that it might refresh them that we are waiting to hear from them and our lives are still very much together. It sucks to be forced to wait so long. Our lives cant stay on hold for 7-12 months. So crazy.
