Hey Everyone,
We got our visa today. So Happy right now.
I think it actually took us 8 months. But the delay was due to the case transfer from Singapore to Colombo Office. If we didnt count the delayed time I think we too got it within like 5 months. So I hope this will be good news for others who are waiting for their visa.
I know how you all feel. The waiting is not easy. Just make sure all the documents are submitted on time. And one more advise and this was from my agent who handled the case in Singapore.
DO NOT PROVIDE TOO MANY DOCUMENTS AND EVIDENCE. coz more documents and evidence means the case officer has to verify and inspect all and so that will delay the process. Only submit what is necessary and for evidence, choose your best and then submit. Coz if the case officer need more evidence or documents, they WILL REQUEST.
Anyway good luck and I hope good news is on the way for all of you.

Congrats!!

It is incorrect that DIBP will request if they need additional evidence the onus on the applicant/sponsor to provide the evidence DIBP are not required to ask for the additional evidence. In fact we saw a rejection last week where the migration agent hadn't supplied additional evidence that the applicant/sponsor had given them. Their reason was that DIBP would ask for additional evidence if they needed it. DIBP did not ask for additional evidence and rejected the visa.

It seems like the visa processing time has gone down to about 6 months.

Hello Everyone,

I am new to this forum and & I have a couple of questions as my wife will be applying for the subclass 309/100 visa by end of this month from Sri Lanka and any help would be highly appreciated.

1) As I am her sponsor, can someone tell me who should fill the Form 888? Does it have to be a person living in Australia and also a person who attended the wedding ceremony? Or can it only be a person known to me living in Australia.

2) What is the average time frame for this visa to be granted? I know it takes up to 12 months but are there any Sri Lankans who have got it well before that time line?

Any help would be highly appreciated as we are new to applying for this visa and we would take any advice for a quicker grant.

Kind Regards,

Hi everyone !!
I'm planning to apply for PMV by the end of next month. Does anyone know whether we can withdraw the EPF (Employee Provident Fund) when leaving the country upon the grant of PMV?
Thanks and best wishes to everyone!

Hello Mpink,

Yes you can do it once after visa is granted( evidence that you are moving out from the country). How ever it takes time to process and credit to your account.

Thanks!
