dear Gemini

id reccommend you be in contact with the immigration in your country, esp the global complaints department, because you should have had some confirmation within a couple of weeks that they got your application. dont be scared to rattle some cages and complain, i just wish i had of complained sooner than later like i did...i hope this helps.
my hubby got his grant this morning, cant wait to talk to him tonight and let him know..good luck

Gemini and vch like this.

Thanks, that's true. atleast we have been made sure that they have our application in their system after an e mail response from the place we lodged the application, advising our application is being processed

Here can you find the Global Complaints email or form online? I'm considering making a complaint especially since my CO has not acknowledged my last couple emails since September!

Just came across this ...when your hubby applied for tourist visa, didn't you give him sponsorship declarations and letter of invite ? Or did he apply as a lone tourist visiting australia where he knows no one ????... I hope I haven't read a part of the whole story and asking this question.

I have applied for PMV offshore on August 17th. No acknowledgement yet. But my fiance called up the embassy in my country and some how got our file number. So I am applying for a tourist visa next week quoting the file number,and also including letter of sponsorship and letter of invitee from my fiance.

I am unemployed now and I do not have much savings to "please and convince" the embassy people, but I have a sponsorship declaration from my future father in law and finance, both australian citizens.

I will be very interested to hear the outcome of your idea as I too am awaiting my Fiance's PMV and would prefer to have her here on a tourist visa waiting with me and do a couple day trip out of the country to approve her PMV if that is all it requires. I just understood the process to be that when ever they grant it, she will need to be already out of the country and being on a tourist visa unless pre-organised with the CO, might have caused issues with that.
I didn't look further into it but have seen many examples of 309 applicants doing this, but I can't recall any PMV applicants doing this.
Post your results if you could because I'm sure I won't be the only person curious about this.

Thanks in Advance.
Nathan

Hi Aussie_Girl,
I am in a similar situation as you were… I am living in Puerto Rico (U.S. territory) with my U.S. hubby. We applied for his Aussie visa early July this year. We got an application acknowledgement email but nothing else, no requests for medicals or police checks yet. There aren’t any registered panel doctors here anyway so he will probably have to travel to the States to get his medical done! I have to be back in Australia to start a new job at Christmas. We had really been hoping that he would get his visa in time to come with me, but we are slowly losing hope. After reading your story, I am considering the option of him coming with me on a Visa Waiver which would give him three months in Australia. What would you suggest? Does it make the whole process a lot more complicated? Does it take longer? Did you advise your CO that your hubby would be leaving to go to Australia? Was is just a matter of going to NZ for a weekend when his visa was finally granted? All info is greatly appreciated!
