Hi everyone.. i'm at 8 months and absolutely no sound from AHC.. in Melbourne atm so hoping they sort it out before my tourist visa is up! Lol

Not to worry. You have 1 year tourist visa/multiple entry. Just before 3 months is complete, you can have a short trip to a nearby country.

Indonesia/Bali, Singapore, or Vanuatu are close and no need of visa for Sri Lankan citizens. I am sure you could find a cheap ticket to Bali or Singapore from Melbourne.

There are other countries not requiring a visa for SL citizens. See this list.

Yes, some people get grants after submitting in response to RFIs. Also, some people get grants without any prior contacts. Some people could take a long time.

Has your immi account status changed to "further processing"? By the way, this has no much significance. How long are you waiting for?

If you are over the global processing times, you can contact AHC for a status update.

At last some news from the AHC. Good to see some movement even if it’s just RFI

Yes. That's right. Colombo AHC has woken up from metabolic depression induced deep hibernation. Winter's gone. Now it is the Summertime :D

Maybe the grant quota has been reached?

Other processing offices around the world are happily issuing 309 grants. I don't think that there is a per-country based quota for partner visas. But I could be wrong

SLBee 01-28-2020 01:26 PM

Based on Dec 19 data for 309, 75% point has reduced to 16 months. 90% point is 21 months. Most applications (75%) have been finalised in less than 16 months.

Some good news.

Unfortunately, we don't have any data for the Colombo AHC. For Colombo, the processing times could be vastly different to the above numbers.

Thanks for the update! Let's keep our fingers crossed as usual!
