When did you apply for the travel exemption?

I applied on the 8th April for the exemption , I came back from Australia on the 14th of March but my visitor visa was just single entry visa, so it was basically expired and my travel exemption came back as ‘unclassified’ . But we also requested for our 309 to be granted in the same form since it has been a year since we lodged. But they said ‘currently no provision to expedite your partner visa’
That’s it. I did not receive any emails or calls from a CO or anyone. It’ was just the initial email requesting for health assessment and biometrics. Nothing after that. Btw, did you provide the 80sp form for the 309?

Form 1221

Has anyone submitted form 1221? If so, was that requested by the case officer?

I did not submit the form 1221 as form 80 pretty much covers all which is included on form 1221..
I submitted only the form 80 and case officers did not request for the other

Okay. Thanks. I expected this is to be the case.

In case this is of interest:

Median Times for Partner Visa Stage One Grants:
Processed at Colombo, Sri Lanka.
230 days (7.6 months) in 2017/18 (726 finalised)
262 days (8.6 months) in 2018/19 (635 finalised)
485 days (15.9 months) in the last 6 months of 2019. (216 finalised)

Median Times for Partner Visa Stage Two Grants:
Processed at Colombo, Sri Lanka.
347 days (11.4 months) in 2017/18. (128 finalised)
528 days (17.4 months) in 2018/19. (156 finalised)
501 days (16.5 months) in the last 6 months of 2019. (113 finalised)

Source Home Affairs Foi

Fewer stage 1 grants, and a longer median time in July - Dec 2019.
But more stage 2 grants (on monthly average), with slightly faster times in July - Dec 2019, compared to 2018-19.

Hi yes I did! Got to Melb on the 5th April and quarrantined at a hotel till the 18th April. Back home now 🙂

Any news on your Visa?

At the Lankan airport they did ask me which Visa I had. I said I had the permanent residency ( 100 visa) but it was my first entry as PR. They did a quick check with Aus officials if it's ok.for me to enter since it was my first entry as PR. They gave the go ahead and it was fine from that point onwards
