Hi!!

He is from Nigeria.

I have emailed Pretoria several times and always received a reply. My last email was requesting someone look into our application as it had been 16 months with no progress.
We received an RFI after that email. We sent them everything they requested on June 18, but havent heard anything since.

Will email them again this week to follow it up.


What about you? Have you had any correspondence or request for rfi's??

I have no case officer yet until now. I get rfi on June 2019, and then automatic email that already passed 12 months after lodged. I think everyone get the automatic email.
After that nothing email or contact. Waiting 17 months now 🤔.

I did that and they didn’t grant me the exemption. No reference whatsoever was made to any document l submitted or the motivation l wrote for why l need to travel. I was just told that there’s COVID restrictions in place and as such l can’t travel and l shouldn’t make an attempt to travel l would be denied entry etc.

Most do seem to be rejected now.

You really do need a substantially compelling compassionate reason to get an exemption, and with the new restrictions that reason will be harder to reach.

Even interstate travel exemptions for Australians are being refused for things like going to relatives funerals etc., to try to stop the movement of people.

Medical certificates to prove your health condition is being affected by being kept apart from your long term partner might work. I did see that for one.

PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION!

Our official petition regarding offshore partner visa processing (subclasses 300 and 309) is LIVE! We need YOUR help to get 10,000 signatures before September 2nd.

If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident and can spare 30 seconds, it would be great to have your support added to the petition for parliament to process offshore partner visas fairly and quickly.

Signing this petition could help thousands of couples finally start their lives together in Australia. Due to inequities in the system (explained in the petition) offshore partner visa applicants can wait more than two years just to get their application looked at. This is an unreasonable amount of time and is resulting in incredible stress for couples and their children, many of whom have to live apart while their visa application is being processed.

If you sign, you will need to check your email straight after to confirm/validate the signature as otherwise it won’t count. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us hope of a fairer processing system!

Here's the link: 👇👇👇

Holders of Prospective Marriage Visas are not being granted travel exemptions at this time and as such may not be able to abide by the enter by date visa condition. As there a reprieve from immigration to alter the enter by date or one would have to reapply for a new visa when that happens.
