Hi Seems Oct 2016 applications are still waiting for their visa. I wonder if that is the case or fi they have simply stopped corresponding on this website. Jan 2017 to March 2017 lodgements had received visa's recently, so I wonder why Oct 16 lodgements are still pending their visa's (unless some issue with those specific ones). Just curious. Also checking if anyone knows if applications lodged by a couple themself get a faster response to those lodged through an agent. Please share any thoughts/news of this matter Thanks.

Hi all,

I can almost guarantee you that nothing actually matters for a faster grant in particular. It is all up to the case officer in my opinion and I would imagine with a lot of other facts.

I simply can't think of either lived in Aus or have traveled to Aus has any implication for a faster grant. Also, applied through an agent or by their selves does not give any edge either.

I can guarantee you that the immigration Colombo does not process spouse visa applications on the merit of date of application either.

As an example, a friend of mine who has never traveled to Australia or for that matter any country was granted the visa in 12 months and 1 week. A similar friend was granted the visa exactly in 6 months!! This was in the same year around the same time.

I know someone who lived in Australia for a quite a long time and then returned to Colombo and applied for this same visa subsequently and now waiting for over 12 months. A similar friend who went through the same circumstances and got granted within 5 months.

There is no right or wrong answer in this category. I'm sure everyone lodge pretty much the same documents and relatively same amount of evidence etc. Therefore, it is very difficult to predict a time frame which is universal.

As I personally narrow it down, All applicants should generally think 6 months of waiting time is normal. 6 to 9 months is very promising since majority of the cases get sorted within this time frame. However, my advice is to be prepared for 12 months which is more realistic with the common pace of Colombo standards in regards to this particular visa.

"I would imagine that too much information can create a delay too. It is very difficult to give my opinion on this matter but what I suggest is to provide adequate evidence. Not too much or not too less! Just right"

8 months and 14 days to date since we applied ours and there is no hope at this stage. Only the immigration knows whats going on!

Hi all,

I have applied for a spouse visa subclass 309. Has anyone applied online? Furthermore, is it compulsory that my husband has a job when lodging the application? He is an australian citizen and was in sri lanka for couple of years and now he is back in aussie trying to settle down.

Hi all,

I have applied for a spouse visa and is hoping to lodge it on Monday. Has anyone applied for the visa online? Furthermore is it compulsory that my husband has a job when lodging the visa? He is an Australian citizen and was down in Sri Lanka for couple of years and he recently flew to Aussie to settle-down.

Hi

For my online application, I first heard from the department around three months after lodgement, others might have had a different experience.

Good luck
