Also, I'm looking at the spreadsheet now and I'm seeing a couple rejected, even those who went through an interview. This is a little confusing, in what cases are partner visas rejected? I assumed that if there was not enough evidence that the case officer was satisfied with, they'd request for additional information. I only thought that partner visas were rejected if they were blatantly fake relationships or they dismissed requests for information.

Yeah, I have no idea why they ask for them at such different times for different cases. Perhaps there are different profiles that they look for? Has your husband been in the military? Another forum member from Russia was only recently asked for the form 80 after a similar waiting time as us.

They are rejected because DIBP believe they are not a genuine couple.

The case officer can requested more evidence but the onus is on the applicant to provide enough evidence. DIBP is under no legal obligation to request more evidence.

We have seen people on this forum rejected and they are genuine. One forum member got a full refund from MRT because it was the biggest form of racial discrimination that they had ever seen.

Sigh, I hope they don't reject us because we are young and don't have assets together.

No, the opposite actually, he was specifically excused from doing mandatory military service due to mental health issues. Maybe that could be why? We scanned a copy of the stanp which excused him from service so they may have wanted more information about that.

Exclamation Waiting With Patience & Love

Hi All

After finding this forum today & reading alot we decided to join & add some words for encouragement to hang in their as we also need due to long processing times, when we originally applied we thought it was only 6 to 8 months but then at application time we heard thru our agent its 10 to 14months.(Prospective Marriage Visa)
We use an agent in Adelaide but the application is lodged by the agent to Moscow online via immiAccount so i guess its still called "Offshore"?, i am permanent resident of Australia for 44 years but came originally from UK very young with my large immediate family, my fiancee lives in Krygyzstan,we've spent 33+ weeks together in Kyrgyzstan since lodging application & its tough for us both waiting to start our life together permanent, we're looking forward so much to the day when its time for fiancee to pack suitcases & welcome her to Australia to be together permanently...words cannot describe this exciting day!! & i'm sure alot of others like yourself are in the same boat!, we can only say stay strong & hang in there with love for each other as life is too short!
As mentioned 33+ weeks vacation from my employment in 14months to be with her is alot but this is love & hope will be evidence of this for the embassy ...we're currently together in Kyrgyzstan for a period of time but now we are close to 13 months waiting...it was on 2nd February 2016 ( 2months ago) the embassy notified us Assessment had started but we haven't heard anything since....we're hoping for a positive answer before i need to head back to Oz.

We only have one question...

When using an agent...does anyone know if we can email the Moscow embassy direct with some more evidence of our genuine relationship...or if we always need to go thru our agent?
We did call which gets diverted to London (i believe) for english language & the lady said we have a case officer assigned, we said we was unaware of this CO assigned, she replied unfortunately she cannot give names over phone due to privacy policy which is fair enough & i was to contact the agent, but when i did this, the agent is nowing trying to contact the embassy as he is also unaware of the actually name as not one email to him states a person identifying themself as the CO....anyway for now...lets all hang-in there & hope for a beautiful result to start a beautiful life together ASAP

Good Luck To All

Feel free to add your details to this spreadsheet if you haven't already done so
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...hu0/edit#gid=0

Sounds like a painful wait and hopefully something comes through for you soon. I wonder how many partner visa applicants get granted tourist visas from Moscow, seems like lots of us have had refusals!!

I'm not sure what you can do about the case officer. I am sure you can add your extra evidence through the immiaccount and keep trying to get a contact.

You should ask your agent if you can upload more evidence yourself or get him to do it, 13 months is proof of lasting AND ON GOING relationship.

I uploaded stuff at least monthly.

Moscow is very hard to get any info out of now. Maybe because when did speak to them, it was easy to know they did not even read our 2nd visitor visa application fully.

Hey everyone, I've been looking up stuff about the form 80 and some people have said the security checks can take up to 12 months which seems ridiculous. Who here can confirm or deny that or has had any problems with the form 80/knows anything about it? I also can't find anything on the Russian language Aus immigration forums.

I think that generally the long wait times for security clearances are on the Australian end and are the result of negative ASIO assessments, someone correct me if I am wrong.

Have a look at this discussion to see reasons why people wait two years or longer, a lot of talk about security clearances
