My wife (she is Armenian) and I are waiting on our partner visa now and she has travelled Australia twice on the sponsored family visa, but also had three tourist visas from moscow refused. We are waiting on our third sponsored visitor now and it has already been 5 weeks.
Currently i am in armenia, my husband in aus. I agree with the complaint idea, coz thats ridiculous! There are a lot of people ready to complain at the russian forum gday.ru

Must be such a relief! We are waiting for that feeling too.

Hi Kahliimah,

Sponsored family visa is eligible for 3, 6 or 12 months,

I used the check list below and we put all our effort into providing the best evidence we could and presented it in an easy format for the CO

https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-...ment-checklist

No Bond requested but i did show sufficient funds in our joint account

I guess at the end of the day you need to prove as best as you can that the applicant has no reason to overstay their visa and will comply with all conditions.

We are so happy with the outcome and just cant wait to be together again.

Best of luck to you

Our agent got an email from the CO yesterday saying "upon receipt of the requested documents I anticipate being able to finalise your clients application"

She sent him the last of our documents by email as we had reached the 60 document upload limit. Here's hoping that the final decision won't be far away! We will be at ten months since lodging the application next Monday

Our visa has been granted!!!! In 9 months and 25 days!

We will now have to call immigration and advise them not to proceed with our sponsored tourist visa, in fact we suspect this may have had something to do with having our visa processed relatively quickly for Moscow .

Now we can plan our life in Australia together, so excited!!

Thanks! Our engagement anniversary was yesterday, so it was a pretty nice present from the Department .

Have you guys been in a defacto relationship now for 12 months? I think if you have then you would be eligible to apply for a sponsored family tourist visa.

I think our case was sped up by the fact that we lodged this sponsored family visa application, as I assume that they wouldn't want to have granted a tourist visa with a partner visa pending, and I have heard previously that the tourist visa people send a note to the partner visa people and ask them what is going on. Not sure if this is true, but we weren't expecting our visa so soon!

Not sure yet, but we could go tomorrow if we wanted, it such an exciting concept!!!

We were planning to go back in June, and so now the possibility of going back earlier is certainly a sweet dilemma

I definitely envy that feeling! But it must feel so nice to go from a feeling of having no idea what is happening to really having the liberty to choose exactly what you want to do and when you can do it. It's reassuring to see that someone in a similar position as us getting their visa at just under 10 months. Hope it's the same for us.
We've pushed our trip to Australia back to June/July, pending the grant of the family sponsored. Depending on where you guys are staying in Australia, we would love to meet up and see how you are enjoying your new life in Australia.
Maybe you can ask DIBP to swap our position in the family sponsored visitor visa queue with the position your application was in before you withdrew it hahaha!
