Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum & I lodged my partner visa application online on the 6th Aug 2017 & two days later submitted health checks, bio metrics as well. Also the police check was submitted too. But till this date I have not received any communication from AHC . Just wondering whether any one has a similar experience?

Good luck
Hi Jay2010,

Were you asked to submit any documents by the department when they contacted you?

Hi pd86,

Yes they requested for a list of documents including SL police clearance, Australian police clearance (AFP) details of communication while apart etc. They requested for this during the first week of September and I submitted everything by last week of Septemeber as the ploice clearance through the SL police website took just over 2 weeks (The webite is much quicker than the other methods). I have not heard anything after submission date up until now

The wait is fraustrating I know, but they will contact you.

Hi Jay2010,

I have submitted a complete application & haven't heard anything since then & that was in August. Yeah as you said the waiting is frustrating ☹

Hi!

So I am a citizen of Australia. I am currently in the process of assisting my fiancÚ who is a Sri Lankan citizen (working in the United Arab Emirates) to obtain a visa to live in Australia after our wedding in Sri Lanka.

We are looking at the prospective marriage visa (subclass 300) option to ensure that the both of us will be together in Australia immediately after the wedding (July 2019).

As stated in the partner migration booklet, we understand that the registration/ wedding ceremony can take place outside of Australia (in Sri Lanka).

However, we are required to provide the following:

"evidence that you intend to marry your fiancÚ(e) within 9 months of being granted the visa. Such evidence must be a signed and dated letter (on letterhead) from an authorised marriage celebrant who will conduct your wedding ceremony. The letter must include the place and date (or date range) on which the planned marriage ceremony may take place"

We would like to know where, how and from whom in Sri Lanka we can obtain such a document to assist in our visa application.

Thanks!

Hi Jay2010,

I was contacted by my CO on the 11th Dec requesting further documents from me & my husband. When I requested an extension to submit the docs as there was a delay with the SL police clearance they granted that too upon advised by the CO. This was granted on the 3rd Jan.

Hi pd86,

Are you sure you were contacted by your case officer? Or is it just the person who mail applicants asking for documents? (I assume some sort of a front office position)

Because it is a vital piece of information for your application. If it was your CO, then your decision is very close to be made

Regards,

Hi madawahdpl

The email i got on the 11th Dec has a first name & a position number mentioned. I assuemed it was the CO because when I requested the extension client contact officer replied saying the CO granted an extension. I could be wrong. 🙂

Hi,

Yeah then it is good news. If the client contact officer mentioned the term "CO" in his/her response of extension grant.

Just out of curiosity, has the applicant ever lived or visited any part of Australia?

Thank you.
