Thanks much appreciated. I already have the 888 form signed by two Australian citizens.

..So this means statements made by my parents and my partners parents (who are not australian citizens) will not be considered statutory declarations even though they are made using the commonwealth stat. dec. template?

but still it is acceptable to use this form and get it signed by a Sri Lankan JP or Lawyer, as there is no other means of doing it?

Hi Sam

If your not a Australian citizen you can write your personal statement on regular A4 paper and get it attested by a JP or a Lawyer they are both accepted this information I was given by AHC. Yes the more 888 forms you hand over with you documents the better it is and if you have any pictures of you and your partner together with the individuals who have filled the 888 forms it would be so much better.. But your 888 has nothing whatsoever to do with your personal statement. Even a statement from your parents can be written on regular A4 paper and certified by a lawyer or JP. Hope this helps

Regards J.D

Hey Guys,

"The application is in the final stage, it’s up to the Senior Migration Officer in Colombo to make the final decision but it was recommended for a grant by the case officer in Sydney."

What does this means in terms of visa grant time frame? I know it's a pretty good sign but how long do you guys reckon it will take ? Look I am way too early to ask this question because it only 3 months since we applied. But would like to know how long it did take for people after the final stage?

DOL : 02 August 2016
CO assigned & Request for further document & medical 31 August 2016
Medical completed 5th September 2016

Now your application will be in the queue according to the DOL. It may take 6 months or more before your grant. (it took about 6 months for PATA to get his visa, while the rest is still waiting almost 8-12 months since DOL)

every case is different, therefore can't give a certain timeline.

Hi John

Thanks for the valuable info, its ridiculous that they take another 6 more months from the final stage.

True but the time frame given by them is 12 months. So we just have to wait patiently. Most of the applicants were able to submit the medicles and additional documents within the first 2 months after DOL. But afterwards they are still waiting...

Hi guys please add me to your timeline, application date of March 22 2016. Looking at the happenings since about October 2015 it appears to me that the 309 visa's have been granted 9 months to about 9 months 8 days. So that is what I am working off as it seems pretty consistent

oh I believe we all just need to be patient like John93 says, they do say 12 months so if we all get it in approximately 9 months or so then they are beating the standard 12 month frame that they say is the standard.
