My husband flew into Aus on his visitor visa the same day the SL airport closed the airport to inbound commercial flights. Now he is unable to exit the country so we will have to apply for another visitor visa to extend his stay here.

Good to know that there are flights still available to come to Aus from SL.

I'm glad he managed to be with you. he can apply for a onshore partner visa.
i was suppose to fly on 23rd March but decided to stay back however luckily 5 days after i got my partner visa approved. Otherwise i would have got stuck trying to fly back to get the grant of my partner visa

But we haven't been uploading any additional evidence apart from replying to the RFI...

Hey! Have you received any information regarding your application? Did you receive the email saying it’s been one year since you applied and stuff?
It’s been a year and a month since I applied for 309 too but I didn’t receive an email.

Usually you should get an automated email in one year from DOL. Sometimes this can be bit late. You should be able to see a copy of that email under messages in your Immi account. If you have an agent, he/she might have not forwarded that to you.

Hey!
no haven't received the one year email either. Its been nearly 14.5 months since our application and no news
I wonder if they are still processing 309 visas from Sri Lanka with the lockdown...

Unfortunately, no much activity from Colombo in May and June. Last 309 grant that I know of was in early April.

I have some stats in the below given post regarding the performance of Colombo AHC in relation to 309. If you know of any other recent 309 grants from Colombo, please post the details.

Have you applied for a 600 and an exemption again. Apparently, you need to apply for a 600 first and then apply for an exemption while linking the exemption request to you your 600 visa application via the reference number. Please update.

I have seen few recent 309 grants from other countries:

I have heard that currently 309 visas are processed onshore due to service disruptions in overseas offices. However, I am not sure whether Colombo has transferred processing to an onshore office.

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.
Thanks for the stats. This gives the median which is a very useful parameter. However, other percentile points of the distribution cannot be derived from this data. If you have access to the raw-data, i.e. the duration of processing for each individual grant, I can integrate this data with my analysis of percentile points. Mainly interested in recent data, grants by Colombo AHC since 1/7/2019.
