Not sure if that helped but they granted her the visa 2 days in advance.
That's awesome, congrats. Who did you email exactly?

My wife received the spouse visa last week...it took us 6 months and few days. She got the visa one week after I contacted immigration asking for explanation for the delay in processing quoting some people received visa in less than four months. I also asked them to let me know if they need any additional information to process. I thought it was fair to ask although their website states not to contact them before the standard processing time.
Generally you receive an auto response from them when you contact via email which states
"....... We do not respond to enquiries about the status of visa applications that are within the advertised visa processing service standards timeframes. Please refrain from contacting this office for a progress update during this time, as this will not expedite the process and we will not respond to these queries. Please note, applications that do not contain all the required supporting documents at the time of application may experience delays in processing.

If you are writing to seek priority processing of your visa application, please be aware that in the interest of fairness, all visa applications are processed in order of their lodgement date. A decision to bring forward processing of your application may disadvantage others whose visa applications are as equally urgent as yours.

Generally the processing of an application will only be expedited if there are compelling or compassionate reasons such as a family emergency or serious illness. If you believe your situation warrants urgent processing of your visa, please send an email to [email protected] including evidence to support your request for priority"


As this clearly states the the visa applications are processed in the order of lodgement date, I cannot find any explanations that someone who applied much later than we did, are able to receive visa much earlier provided that we have submitted all the necessary supporting documents. That was my point.

Although I cannot be sure that the visa was granted because of the email I sent, it may be a reason. I didn't receive any personal response for my email.

From the responses from others in the last 2 or 3 weeks in this forum, I understand that many people have received visa in shorter period. It is a positive thing. I can understand the pain of those who are waiting for long time.

You may consider contacting immi to ask them to expedite the process and explain them the stress you are going through politely and put your argument in convincing way. I am not a professional adviser, but sharing my experience.

Good luck guys.

Cheers
Hi Jey,
Thanks for sharing your experiences. I am also after some contact details to get in touch with Immigration to process my 309/100 visa on a priority.

Cheers

Any updates from offshore applicants based in Sri Lanka?

The average processing time is between 13 to 18 months

I am waiting for my husband's application for almost 18 months now. I also have a FAMILY MEDICAL EMERGENCY. I got my agent to upload a letter that was written by me with a compassionate and compelling reasons along with a medical certificate from the doctor. No response yet. I called the immigration and they acknowledged me saying they can see 2 documents were uploaded but don't know what would be the next response and when.

There are a couple of others from Sri Lanka, "Sept2017" and "utsc" who both applied in July 2017, and appear to be still waiting.
