Hopefully they will soon !

Saw this on another thread. Not sure about the validity.

Update from the russian forum and google docs. A user posted that the case officer told them that they are processing all of the applications from 12 or more months ago by the end of this month, only a few of those left and they've granted two already in the last couple of days. I am guessing they'll get all of them done in the next 2 weeks and it'll be onto the applications lodged around nov-jan
So all we can do is hope and pray that they will start granting visa soon !

Hi All,

Hope you guys had a good long weekend!

Asa , maybe you are right, files are waiting in the ques. If you see back on this thread 33-34-35 there are bunch of people got their visas within 9-10 months in 2015, some are 11 months. Last year also there was a delay and October 2015 there were partner visa grants at a stretch.

It depends on case to case some received '' Initial assessment completed and progressed to the next level '' last year applicants received '' Initial assessment completed and queued for senior officer in order make the decision'' . Either way it has queued for the final decision.

This is the process stages they mentioned in their web;


What happens after a Partner visa application is lodged?

• Stage 1 – Registration of application

After an application is lodged, it is registered in our systems. The applicant will receive a confirmation of the registration of their application and willbe advised of their case file number and the estimated timeframe for processing.

• Stage 2 - Assessment

The application is assigned to a case officer and an initial assessment of the application is undertaken.

If the information provided with the application is incomplete, the applicant will be requested to provide the information within a specified timeframe. Failure to reply within the specified timeframe may result in an adverse decision being taken on the application.

The time taken to assess an application can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the case, medical issues that need to be resolved, the requirement for an interview and/or the need for 3rd party checks.

If an interview is required, the applicant will be contacted by the case officer to make arrangements for an appointment at the Australian High Commission, Colombo.

• Stage 3 - Decision

Once there is sufficient information for a decision to be made, the case officer will proceed with a final assessment of the application. The decision maker will contact the applicant to determine whether the relationship is ongoing.

A decision to grant a Partner Visa application that has been lodged outside of Australia can only be made when the applicant is outside Australia. If an applicant is in Australia when the application is ready for finalisation, they will be asked to provide details of when they plan to leave Australia.

It is not just us in Sri Lanka. There are many people who have applied from South Asian countries that are waiting for more than 10 months.
There are few Indians who have received their visa this month but they have applied almost a year ago.

If you look at the "Australia Timelines" section on the right hand side of this page you will be able to search other people who applied from your country and see how long it took them. Hang in there and good luck!

I think India post takes more time to process SB300 /SB309. Some are 12- 15 months. Percentage stand point applicant numbers are high comparing to Sri Lanka. I am completing 10 months in 1st of Aug 2016.

Pray and hope visa will come soon!
