Hi Mish,

Thank you for your reply.. I did appy onshore then they asked me to go offshore as I was on bridging visa, which they don't consider as a substantial visa. Basically it was our mistake, I withdrew my student visa extension and applied onahore partner visa. My partner asked from the immigration and they said I am eligible for permenent visa instead of waiting 2 years, however they cannot help with processing time in colombo.
We are thinking to request for an interview because my husband is really struggling to pay our mortgage etc and he is helpless.
Hope something will workout, i cant imagine myself waiting for another 8 months

Hi Hash, welcome to the thread.
My husband had a similar situation and ended up having to suddenly leave Australia and apply offshore, quit his job- was a major shock for us. We had an interview here in Colombo after 4 months and explained our circumstances but they told us there is a fixed queue and even if they wanted to give the visa straight away they cannot. We have already been waiting 8 months and hoping for a grant soon. You can ask for an interview (fingers crossed for you, your circumstances might be more compelling) but I fear that unfortunately you have to be prepared for a bit of a wait...

Hi simmy,
Thank you for your reply.. I think It will be the same for me then. They asked me to submit medical and pc, then we thought we are nearly there. Then found out its the normal procedure. How did u ask for an interview? They barely reply for any mails. Im planning to ask once i submit the police clearance. But im getting myself prepared for the wait.. Why do u think mine is more compelling? Length of the relationship i guess?
I hope your husband will get it soon, 8 months is too much 😩
Please let me know about the interview and how you go

Thanks again

Hi Mish,
we didn't have a mortgage to pay, which might be more compelling If you can prove your finances- but had to move out of our apartment and sell all our furniture (rent was too much for just me to pay) and I came over to Sri Lanka as well. We actually didn't ask for an interview because we didn't even know we could- i think they called us because our case is a bit complicated-think they wanted to meet in person to just make sure it's genuine. I have read that others have written the request in their statements. But some people didn't even have an interview at all and got the visa. You can try and ask when you submit the police clearance- make sure you submit it as soon as possible. Good luck!!

So it looks like in the last two months there are no partner visa grants from Sri Lanka?

But I saw in some other forums people are from India and some other countries getting visa grants regularly :|

It is okay to delay it if the relationships are not genuine and if there are some issues.. :| But I am not sure what is going on in SL process :|
