820 interview

Hi everyone

I applied for my 820 onshore partner visa by paper in September 2013. As I am going overseas for a family affair in two weeks, I recently applied for and got granted a bridging visa B to travel. However this afternoon I received a voicemail and an email from a case officer / assistant manager in immigration requesting an interview with my partner and I two days before im leaving the country. I'll be away for a month and my partner won't be traveling with me. I'm just wondering if it's uncommon for interviews to be held for onshore partner visa applications as that's what I've heard and I'm not sure if to be happy about this news or not. Also, if it is rejected, and I leave on my holiday, how would I be able to get back into the country and sort out my affairs here or try and file an appeal? Should I try to postpone the interview till after my trip? I'm really confused as to what's going on

It is not uncommon for such interviews to take place to satisfy a case officer that your relationship that genuine and continuing to the exclusion of all others. You will be able to come back to Australia while you BVB is valid.

If your application is refused you will be able to appeal the refusal with the MRT if you wish to. In which case you sponsor will be the appellant , and you will have you BVA while this process in ongoing.

Hi is this the interview over the phone or your partner has to attend it personally. Phone interviews are common but never heard of the other one. I've also applied for 820 visa

Face to face interviews used to be very common.

Interviews for partner visas used to be mandatory, more recently they are used when there is an issue to be resolved.
