Angry Prospective Marriage Visa

Hi everyone,

Current Situation:
I am an Australian Citizen. My Fiance is Armenian. We applied for a Prospective Marriage Visa (subclass 300). We applied through an Immigration Lawyer/Agent.

Initially we were told that processing times through the Russian Embassy (which looks after applications from Armenia) would take somewhere between 9-10 months to process.

So when we applied on 26/06/2015, we thought that by now we would have had some notification that our application was allocated to a case worker.

It has been 8months & 5 days since we applied and we have not heard anything yet about our application. Not even a case worker has been allocated.

To make things worse, apparently the Department of Immigration has said that prospective marriage visa applications are now being delayed due to an influx of applications and that the visa can take up to 12 - 15 months to progress.

It sucks as the expectations keep changing yet we have not seen any progress to our application since we applied.

Is anyone else in the same boat here? Has anyone else applied for a Prospective Marriage Visa through the Russian embassy? What were your processing times like?

I'm so frustrated and upset :-(

Ours was around the 9 months think it was 10 actually. That was from Ukraine and around a year ago we were issued our PMV.

Did you supply police and medicals at time of application?

Hello,

Yes we supplied police checks, medicals, single status certificates, evidence of genuine relationship, statements, photos etc etc...

We went through an immigration lawyer and made sure that we had every single document BEFORE applying.

Even by doing all of that its been 8 months and not a single update

if you have supplied everything, they have no reason to contact you.
Many people in your situation hear nothing until the grant.
What does your immigration agent say about it?

Russia do not like to communicate, you use to be able to call the embassy but no longer.

Hey queenregina,

My wife is from Armenia and we are in the same position as you! We applied on 25 June for a spouse visa through the Moscow embassy. There is a tracking spreadsheet being used for people lodging in Moscow, and it might give you a better idea of how things are going there. Feel free to add your details to it.

Are you living in Aus at the moment? My wife and I are currently living in Yerevan together and hoping for a grant inside of 12 months!
