Hi Lak

did you receive your visit visa? and what were the documents you provided? and how much of an account balance you need to have and how long did you ask the visa for?

Question Current processing times for 309/100 visas?

Hi, Wondering if anyone has some insight into the sort of processing times currently for 309/100 Spouse visa applications in Sri Lanka? Is there somewhere on the forums I can find processing time information from other people?

Lodged a 309/100 for my Sri Lankan husband 10 weeks ago: 21 May 2018. We used an Australian MARA registered immigration consultant to ensure we covered everything we needed to so it's lodged via their immiaccount. We hope to have the 100 issued immediately after the 309 as we've been married almost 2 years and living together for the last 3╝ years.

Wondering if we should go ahead and get the police checks and medicals done ASAP or wait for a bit if the processing time is more than a year (then they would likely would have to be repeated later on). Thanks for helping with any information.

Hi Sash,. The visitor visa was refused unfortunately. They have provided the reason as insufficient incentives to come back to SL after Australian visit. Interestingly I have provided leave letters, property details, bank savings, immediate family members details who are in SL. Unfortunately I don't have any more support documents to provide so I don't have a choice but to wait for the partner visa now.

Your situation may vary so try to provide as much as documents you can. It's all depends on the visa officer who checks your case. Wish you all the best.

Hi,

So the processing times as given on the website is likely to take between 21- 26 months as mentioned on the website as of the current update made for the new financial year( 1st July onwards). I am not sure if the applicants who applied prior would receive the same amount of processing time. But there is a google sheet which belongs to this forum where you can find out the information of currently logged visa and their granted dates.

I believe it's all up to the visa officer to make a call irrespective of which agent you used to apply for the visa. If all the documents are given properly and if the case is genuine, then you shouldn't really worry about the rest. When I applied, I provided everything which included the police checks from both sides (Sponsor/partner) and the medical of mine as well, hoping that it would help the officer to make decision without having to request further info.

Hi,

I am so sorry that it didn't work out for you, its just sad that we have to keep waiting for a decision.I can't believe that fact that, having provided all the documents, that they still refused it. Maybe you should have waited a while, you and I have applied in the month of June. So lets keep a tab on our status on this forum.

maybe you can appeal the visa refusal? since you seem to have met all the requirements. assuming that your a lady, maybe your husband could visit you often since your out of choices atm.

Hi There,

we applied our self and did the medicals and police check up front and submitted everything. Lodged on 27th October 2017 and submitted all the docs on 17th November 2017. After that, no feedback from Immi. Meanwhile, I've applied visitor visa and only got 2 months and now I am in Australia. hoping to leave in this month. Don't know when 309 will be granted?

Hi

Don't waste time to appeal visa refusal. apply another visitor visa with full details. eg.
invitation letter from your spouse.
fixed deposit from sl bank
if you are working, salary slips.

Hi Keith, did you apply your visitor visa under the sponsored family member category or the normal visitor category? I am planning on applying for a visitor visa for 6 months. Can someone give me some insight on it. Would applying for a visitor visa delay your partner visa?
