Hi Njs

Majority of the applicants received the visa within 6. Some even within 4 & 1/2 months.

I'm guessing you, asa, banda and mantha will get yours by next month once the new financial year starts or at the end of this month.

And also online applications and onshore applications takes a bit more time than the offshore applications.

Got an e-mail from my case officer this morning saying

"A limited number of visa places (determined by the government) are given for grant each financial year. We have now reached that level so cannot grant your visa until July 2015 at earliest."

So if you're waiting most likely no grants until July.

Cheers
That's interesting and thanks for sharing this. Let's hope the best and wait till the financial year end.✌

Hi everyone,
I am new here. I applied my partner VISA online quite recently(in May). Im a bit stressed out seeing all the comments around here about online VISA applications getting longer to process than paper based ones.
Is there anyone here who have applied online?

Hi John,

Thank you very much for the info you shared.

I believe that applicants who applied OCT/NOV/DEC 2015 will come by latter part of June or after end 1st of July 2016. We were waiting so long and over 6 months. Another 2 weeks time I'll be completing 9 months and end of financial year. the whole process is like planting sweet potato ,waiting to grow,additional care, harvesting and wait until its perfectly cooked. :P

Good day!

Hey Guys,

My wife is planning to travel with me in July and we are also currently waiting for the spouse visa. She had visited VFS today and they had told her that she would get a tourist visa with a stay period decided by AHC in Colombo.

Can someone share some information on usually how long a stay period is when a tourist/visit visa is granted?

Thank You

Usually visitor visa is given for either 3/6/12 months. Once granted and when you are in Australia, you will be informed to leave Australia to receive the decision about you spouse visa. (As per my knowledge)

You should have applied it in Australia as an onshore visa if you were planning to travel to Australia. That way you could have stayed in Aussie with a bridging visa.
