Few weeks ago AHC requested to submit Sri Lankan Police Clearance for the Sponsor. Did anyone go through similar request before?

I didn't get any emails regarding CO... Do you think they will assign later after submitting SL Police Clearance ?
Hi Tazzy,

Yes, my husband was also requested for his Sri Lankan PCC and the AFP Certificate (Australia). We had to also provide PCC for any other countries that he stayed in for over 12 months. I think this is a new requirement for partner visa's applied after November last year.

Yes I am the sponsor. They asked me to get police clearance from birth to current date from Sri Lanka Police. But the time frame is 28 days in my email.

After several weeks of struggle including Wesak holidays, I manage to get it last Friday.

yes, the immigration website say after 18 November 2016 applications require Police Clearance check.

Did you get any update after submitting PCC ?

Hi Tazzy,

My husband got the same email requesting for his police clearance report. It's just a requirement and haven't heard from them since then!

Cool

Hi Jey,

Apologies for late reply. I didn't see your question until now I had to go back in thread for some application timelines.

Given you have applied in march, most likely you may have to wait at least 10 months compared to all the applicants on this thread. But there are few others who got visa within 4 months ( very rare). If you don't mind travel expenses it would be great for you to apply for tourist visa.

When I applied for our first tourist visa, my wife had her " Leave form and payslips" to show she was going away for 3 months and I did provide our marriage cert, brief letter saying I'll provide her accommodation etc.

On 2nd instance, I just got her to apply for tourist visa and I provided my bank statement + pay slips to show that I've maintain a permanent income. On both occasions, we did general tourist visa ( Not sponsored family ).

Australian visas are processed regardless of your previous visa applications, given none of the visa's rejected. So, you will need a valid reason for visit aligning with documented proof . Don't include you need to see each other. Rather, include a proof as requested in visa check list.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Happy to help.

Cheers ! ( BTW - Me and My Wife are still waiting for any news from AHC for souse visa )

Reading the threads from this forum and the time frame given in the immigration web site, it appears it is going to take few more months to hear the decision from AHC. Therefore we intend to lodge tourist visa.

I am confused whether my wife has to apply for tourist stream or sponsored family stream? and what reason we can provide for the for applying tourist visa? if we genuinely say that we want to spend time together, is that a valid reason for the visa? As you have experience, could you please give me some advice regarding this?

If anybody else has experience regarding tourist visa, please share.

Thanks Blessed4life. My wife applied for tourist visa couple of weeks before. She received the visa grant letter last Friday. AHC generously granted one year multiple entry visa with maximum stay of 3 months for each entry even-though we asked for 6 months multiple entry. We are very happy about the outcome and now have to wait for the spouse visa get approved. I have received email from AHC for police clearance for sponsor related to the spouse visa. Hoping to get them as soon as possible. Not sure how long will take after supplying my PCC.

Good Luck on your spouse visa, hope you get it soon.

Cheers.

Hi Everyone,

I have applied for the partner Visa and would like to be in this forum to be updated

Date of Lodgement: 12 November 2016

My husband applied for a one year multiple entry tourist visa however we were only given 3 months single entry, no reason was given to why.

Did anyone experience this?
