Smile Family sponsored Visitor visa 600 from India

Hello,

My husband is an Australian Permanent Resident and I am an Indian citizen. He has applied Family sponsored visitor visa for me in Australia while we are waiting for partner visa 309/100 which we applied on 25th Aug 2015 online.

DOL of VV600: 4th April 2016

Type: Paper

Acknowledgement mail received:6th April 2016

Fees for the VV visa was cut from my hubby's account: 7th April 2016.

Now its been correctly one month and I haven't heard anything from them. My husband called to the IMMI office in Australia and they are not coming on the line. The automated voice says "As we are high in demand we cant take calls now" .

Anybody has any idea as to how much time it takes. Many of the people I know were granted within 3 weeks who applied Family sponsored visa. Therefore am curious whats the situation with me. Any advice will be appreciated.

Thank you

The Department of Immigration are short staffed and so these applications are taking longer than they should. Just be patient. With luck all will be well in the end.

We have been waiting almost 5 weeks for our visa with no word yet. The service standard is 6 weeks, with some people on this forum not getting a grant for 3 months. They won't say anything until the service standard has passed, so don't bother calling until week 6 has long passed, in fact I'm not going to bother calling until the 2 month mark has passed.
