Medical check referral letter -visa details

Hi,

My husband has applied for a partner visa (offshore) and I was just looking at the medical referral letter which he received (he's done the health check and it was approved). Under "Client visa details" in the letter, it states "BC 100 Spouse (Permanent)". Do you think this might mean that if his visa is approved, he might directly get the permanent visa rather than the temporary one?

We have been together almost 5 years, married about 1.5 years, one child and another on the way, so a good case I suppose.

Thanks for your views!

There is a very good chance that he will. I always find the best way is to write a submission explicitly setting out your relationship history and asking your case officer to consider granting the 100 and not the 309. It works for my clients.

Mine said 100 as well, however you've been together longer and we are not married either. I downloaded the referral letter pretty much as soon as I submitted the application and I'm pretty sure that nobody at IMMI had seen it at that point. I think it says 100 (instead of 309) because that is the visa you are going for in the end.

I had just thought it would show the permanent visa you're applying for (mine was for 801 for the onshore visa) as when you apply for your partner visa it's not a temporary one as the goal is a permanent visa.

OK. Good to see the different views. I saw on another thread that often they put the most "important" visa you are asking for (so the permanent one) on the referral letter. We'll see what happens. We have applied via Madrid and seems to take a while through that embassy unfortunately.

Thanks!

Hi, have you got your visa? is it 309 or 100?

Sorry for the delayed response. Enjoying life in Oz!!

My husband was granted both visas at the same time, so he entered on the permanent resident visa.

I don't think that the reference on the medical check had anything to do with it though. I think they say that you are being checked for both visas. We got the permanent one straight away as we've been married for 3 years, together for 5 and 2 kids together.

Hi Pineapple88. I know this is an old thread but I'm hoping you will see my question anyway. I am in the exact same situation as you were. I'm Australian, my husband is not, we are living in France and we've been married a long time with 2 kids. Did you specifically ask for to go straight for the permenant visa in a letter somewhere in your application (as suggested above by someone) or did the office just decide to give it to your husband without you doing anything? Thanks!

They SHOULD grant you the 100 without you asking for it, but it doesn't hurt to mention it somewhere in your statements or include a cover letter or whatever you prefer. What happens is you get a letter granting the 309, and then immediately after a letter granting the 100.

Agree with what college said. I didn’t ask for anything particular but put a lot of genuine demonstrations of our relationship. I don’t think it hurts to call them up and have a pleasant chat either. As I said, a few hours after I called, the visa was granted. I think someone forgot about us. I would definitely recommend applying off shore. So much easier to arrive with full work rights. My husband saying he is a permanent resident makes a huge difference for employment and other things. Of course it’s against the rules to arrive on a tourist visa with the intention of staying long term anyway.
