Unhappy Offshore 309 partner visa

Hi everyone, my husband has applied for a 309 partner visa offshore at Vietnam in 30/3/15 (2nd time), the processing time normally take between 9-12 months so up until now we have been waiting for more than 12 months and still haven't heard anything from the Immigration. It's so frustrating for us to wait, especially we've been rejected for the first time, applied for tribunal and still got rejected and then this. Just wondering if anyone know why is it taking so long for the immi to finalise the application? Is it because we've been rejected 2 times? And if we've been waiting for more than 12 months this time, does that mean it's a sign that we'll get rejected by the immi again? Please help

It might depend on the reasons for rejection before, and if all that has been fixed correctly.

Did you use an immigration agent this time?

Hi JandE,
Yes we are using an immigration agent in Australia, but when we ask them why is it taking so long all we heard from them is: "you just have to wait, we have submitted all the required documents, now we both have to be patient and wait" which make us feel very frustrating because we don't know what else to do rather than waiting.

That's because there is nothing else you can do. Constantly asking for updates isn't going to speed things up. It generally only takes a few hours to actually process an application. Most of the time the application just sits there waiting for someone to work on it. I get asked the same thing quite often and it just as frustrating for us migration agents.By using a registered migration agent you have given yourself the best chance of having a well prepared application, which should have a positive impact on both the outcome and timeframe.

Hi Nick,
thank you for your response, as a migrant agent, do you think waiting for more than 12 months is a sign that we'll get rejected from the immi again this time?

Yours may not come under normal processing times, due to the history.
You may need to expect a longer processing time than average.

Your agent has said: "we both have to be patient and wait", it is logical that they may be correct.

As a migration agent I have learned not to speculate on outcomes, especially not for applications I have had nothing to do with and know nothing about.

Most of the time these applications are just sitting there gathering (cyber) dust, until someone actually gets to work on them.

If official processing times are exceeded and you get no response from the processing centre you can raise your concerns through the global feedback people.Obviously you wouldn't do that yourself if you had engaged an agent, as that would annoy them and also may mean a breach of your contract..
