We should not submit any document, except the initial required documents, unless the case officer request them. More documents, more evidence means the case officer has to go through all of them and can drag the process.

So if you have given the documents to your agent, he/she must have done the same thing.

By the way, when did you lodge the visa?
Our case is bit complicated. We applied in 8th June 2015 in Singapore and now the file has been transferred to Colombo for further processing.

Cheers!
Thanks Redbull,
We handed over the documents to VFS Global Sri Lanka on 15-Jul-2015. So all these documents were submitted with initial application.
After we submitted the application this was the first communication we ever had with AHC.

Did you get any updates regarding progress of your application?

Cheers,
Nath

Hi there. Hope you get your visa soon.

Applied on 15th June
First response was on 22nd July asking to submit medical, original of police clearance and attend an interview in Colombo on 17th August.
Was able to submit all by 18th August.
I requested to change the interview to Australia as I am in Australia now on tourist visa.
Two guys from immigration from Australia came in late September without informing and asked questions about our relationship and living arrangements.
On 1st October I was told initial assessment was completed and it might take about 12 months. Said they might contact me before granting the visa to check how the status of the relationship is.
Still waiting in Australia for spouse visa.

Hi aussie0083,
No we did not get any reply after they requested for some documents including a new police check. Coz we applied from Singapore, the police check copy was uploaded to our file online. But when the file was transferred to colombo high commission, they requested us to send another police check directly to them. Which we did. They gave us one month. So next week will be the last day, and so we are waiting for some kind of reply from them.
Our file is being processed for 6 months now. The transfer to colombo might make some delays in the process but the colombo high commission said this wont have any effect on the time line. Hope fully we will get the visa soon.

Redbull

Hi Hash and all,
Just two days ago, my partner received a phone call from High commission asking him to post the original police checks from the countries he has resided before. We have already submitted the copies online for all the police checks and also we have send original police check as well. And after requesting the sri lankan police check, only now they are asking us to send the originals of other police checks. Creating an unnecessary delay. Im just so angry how about how these people work.
Why couldn't they just request us to send all the original copies of all the police checks when they first requested the documents like one month ago? its just so frustrating.
Further more, one of the police checks are with our agent in Singapore and now they need to send it SriLanka which will take another week.
Soo disappointing. We didn't even receive the initial assessment is complete email yet.

I wonder why some people get this email and why others dont. For example Hash in this thread did not get any email like that. Does everyone get this email?
