I wish you all the best in ausie
Thank you everyone. We're very happy that the visa was granted in this duration. It was not expected and was great news...

Hash, I'm sure you would be granted the visa in a similar time frame regardless of who the CO is.
You have nothing to worry if all documents have been submitted (including the original PCC, Medical and Biometrics) and enough proof of your relationship being genuine.
Good Luck and have hope always

Hi Hash,

Any updates about your interview or about your visa?
Our case officer requested couple of other documents recently including my (Sponsor) tax claims for the last three years. No idea why they asked that for. Anyway, we sent all the requested documents. Its now been nearly six months

Anyone here who lodged their visa in June 2015 and got their visa yet? or any updates?

Thank you all!!! All your comments here are a big help!!!

Hi Redbull,

I had 2 hr interview covering relationship and my old visa etc.. She said it will take another 10 months or so.. But doesnt seem to give anything away about the process. Lodged in end of may, since some people who lodged in march and april got their visas I hope it won't take that long..
Anyway keep us updated.. When did they request the documents?? It seems they check bunch of applications together.

Hi Hash,
Thankz for the update. Its really not fare to say even after the interview it will take another 10 months. Thats a load of rubbish in my view. Dont they have a service standard to meet. Which is 12 months in Sri Lanka. Even though thats a long period to wait, they are saying it will take more than that??

They actually requested the documents about two weeks ago. First the file was transferred to Sri Lanka. Then they asked my partner to give his bio-metrics. And then they sent an email requesting couple of documents and we submitted them all. Also they asked us to fill form 80. I don't know why our agent didn't submit this initially. The agent said, the case officer need to request this documents if not it is not important.

Also the case officer requested to send another police check from Sri Lanka. We have already submitted the police check earlier, and again they asked us to send one directly to them. So we did. But i think it will take abotu 2-3 weeks for that police check to arrive at the high commission by post.

Anyway, now we have submitted all the docs they have asked for in the email and im pretty sure we wont hear any thing from them until they receive the police check. What Im afraid is, that they will send us an email saying "the first stage is complete" and that we have to wait another 8-9 months for them to give us a decision.

They assured us that the File transfer from Singapore to Sri Lanka will not affect the processing time and that they will consider the initial lodged date which is 8th June. I really do hope they will process our visa, or at least give us an idea how long actually they gonna take to process the visa.

Hi there,

Don't worry the transferring won't affect ur file, they write the date of lodgement on the file and asses them accordingly. They emailed me on first week of nov. hope they will complete initial one soon, infact me too afraid that they will say another 8 months after that. But I hope They will get processed by march atleast.

Hi Hash,
So you never yet received an email from them saying your initial assessment is complete?
Dont they ask people to come for an interview after the initial assessment is over?

No they normally do a telephone interview before granting the visa. My case is complex, may be the reason they did an interview in this stage

keep your fingers crossed they will get back to us once its complete
