Dear BD1999 are you waiting for 20 months????? Still you didn't get!!
I thought I m the only one who is waiting for 16 months. Because I saw many lucky people in this forum who got their visa in 6-7-8 months last year.

Life may change anytime. After waiting 16 months for visa now cancelled it for personal matter. Waiting time was so painful, frustrating, lonely and heartbreaking.
Best wishes for you all. Hope everyone will get your visa soon.

Spouse visa 309 complicated application

Hi all I'm writing in to this forum in regards to my husbands spouse visa.
Visa 309 was lodged 14/03/2018
I'm his sponsor I'm an Australian citizen.
I have few issues if anyone can help me clear up some doubts would appreciate it a lot
### first one is that I'm his sponsor but I'm currently not working or living in Australia. I came back to Srilanka because parents wanted me to get married. I have being here in srilanka since December 2016. I got married to my husband through an arrange marriage November 2017 . So we don't have much of relationship history as evidence to give we got married within 7 months of getting to know each other. We have given wedding photos and bills and payments spent on the wedding as evidence. We have lodged for his spouse visa and we are living in SL so we don't have to be apart coz we are newly weds and still getting to know each other. Didn't want to suffer waiting for the visa in two different countries. I do own a house and a car in Australia so those are my only assests. I have provide with my tax returns but only up until 2016. They had asked for current but I couldn't get the 2017 one due to being out of Aussie plus haven't worked for half of the financial year. So don't know if that will be an issue with my husbands spouse visa.
### second issue is we couldn't apply online due to me being granted my citizenship from my ex husband visa 801 march 2011 and visa 100 June 2013. It's being over 5 years seperated. Due to this we couldn't apply online because the system wouldn't let me will my sponsor form so we submitted paper form applications. Dont know if this will be an issue for my husbands visa grant.
### next issue is we have submitted all police clearance both his and mine srilankan police clearance and my Aussie NPC. My husband has studied in Thailand for 4.5 years and Singapore for 1.5 years. So will he be needing to submit police clearances from those two countries as
well???
### it's being a bit over two months now after lodgement how much longer should we wait before he gets his Medicals done??? Should we wait them to let us know to do it. Or should we just go and get it done???
Thanks in advance for who ever can help. Cheers

Hi Duffy,

In regards to your questions, a couple of them I maybe able to help you with.
Q 1. To be a sponsor your usual residence must be Australia as per my knowledge. feel free to research on this part as im not 100% sure. Did you apply through a migration lawyer?

Q 2. I can't answer for this question. Didn't the stop accepting paper applications somewhere last year?

Q 3. Yes. If your husband spent time in Thailand & Singapore during the last 10 years he needs police clearances from both countries. (during the last 10years for more than 12 months is the rule they have given).

Q 4. Medicals you might have to wait till they request since you need the HAP id in order for your husband to get the medicals done. If you applied online you can get it straight away by filling out the assessment but in this case you will have to wait till requested. Your husband have to submit bio metrics as well.

Hope this helps. cheers

Pd86 thanks clarifying a few things.

No we didn't apply through an immigration lawyer.
I didn't know I had to be in Australia. I do have my house which is rented and car under my name and a recidential address. I've being staying with my husband coz I didn't want to take a risk on jeopardising this marriage. Well so I'm loving back on first week of July hoping that will help.
I couldn't proceed with the sponsor online application it blocked me with an error msg due to my previous marriage. It said to contact immigration. Contacting them didn't really help that's why we filled the paper forms. I research and it said that if I was sponsored or I have sponsored someone as a spouse I had a limitation of 5 years. But still the online system wouldn't let me proceed.
Thanks in regards to the medicals and the police clearances. I'll wait for the medicals to be asked for and look in to getting the Singapore and Thailand police clearances for him.
It's not fair that us taxpayers our partner have to wait so long for visas and they are asked for so much evidence and documents when Skill migrants don't have to do much to get their spouses to get their visas.
Plus they don't even has initial job when they first go to even support themselves or even places to stay. But they get visa within 3-5 months.

Hi Duffy,

I think you have to be in Australia but i'm not sure for how long you can be away. Coz since 2016 you havent been in the country yeah. Your husband can come visit you with a visitor visa..thats always an option. There is a 5year limitation to soonsor again but not sure why it blocked yours..maybe a techinical issue.

Hi pd86
Yes I haven't being in Australia since December 2016. But I've just booked a ticket for July so I'll be moving back and see if that will help.
Thanks again. Let's just patiently wait I guess. Good luck!!!
