No Rathna. No news about Sri Lankan visa grants. But I saw some visa grants frm India, Dubai and some other countries. Even yesterday.
So the strike might effect us, bt I am nt sure exactly.

i don't think this will impact visa processing times..

if you lodge a offshore visa from Sri Lanka, do they process from SL or AU?
Every time i call AU Immi, they ask me to contact SL Colombo immigration.

Is paper based application processing is different from online applications?

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for your posts, it's been interesting to read through.

I am an Australian female and my Sri Lankan fiance and i have applied for a partner visa on the 22nd of Feb 2015.

We initially progressed quite quickly and have completed; medicals, police checks, his interview in Colombo and my phone interview. After all that we received a letter stating that we have advanced past the initial processing stage and will now just have to wait on the final decision (which could be up to 7 months).

We are using a migration agent from Australia.

Looking forward to hearing from you all how your visas are going...

Hopefully we get some news soon!

Hi Neth and Annabella

Welcome to the thread....

Neth, if you have applied offshore it will be processed by the offshore office (for both paper and online)

Of-course this waiting is killing us :|

Hope to hear some good news soon

Hi Nath and Annabella

Welcome to the thread!

Nath, to answer some questions you had...
If you have a paper base application you can go on the vfs website and put your details in on under track your visa, but it will basically only show if your application has been received by the Australian high commission. Usually after applying you will get an email stating your application has been received and you have to do your medical and police report. You already did that so you might just get an email from your case officer and if u need any other documents or information they'll ask for it. Then you wait... And wait and wait. You may or may not get an interview.
Before the end of financial year waiting time was on average 8.5 months. Now after, rathan is around 11 months now I think, and we are 9, and Dhanu is just after us.
Nobody knows what's up with the waiting now, but we are hoping for good news real soon! Good luck to all

You are correct. My DOL 13/10/2014. So it is around 11 months since I lodged

Btw anybody contacted your case officers regarding the time line? because from other forums I can see, people get visa in India.

Most probably be prepared for continuous relationship evidence in case if CO ask.

I gave

1) Skype/Fb/Viber/GMail/Mobile number
2) Joint account updates
3) Photos during SL visit
