Date of application: 12 January 2011

Nationality: Serbian

Visa type: 801/820 Partner visa

Offshore/onshore: Onshore / Sydney office

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes in April
Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes in April

Date CO assigned: - Nothing yet

Date visa granted: - Still waiting

Has anyone else lodged an onshore app around January 2011 or thereabouts?? I've tried to contact DIAC but it's near impossible.

Date CO assigned: - 4 July 2011

Date visa granted: - Permanent visa granted 12 July 2011


After trying to contact unsuccessfully trying to contact Sydney Partner processing by phone and email (I never got any response to emails or requests for a phone call) I made a formal complaint. Shortly after we were assigned a CO and the rest is history.

Thanks to everyone who posts on here because if it wasn't for your feedback I would still be waiting for someone to call us. I asked our CO why some onshore partner visas are processed much quicker than others as I had been told that our case would be looked at according to the date it came in. I was advised that they have people that look through cases regularly. Those that have *ALL* the required info and documentation are often processed quicker than others.

[QUOTE=Eduardoamo;30323]Date of application: 11th March 2011

Nationality: Brazilian

Visa type: Spouse Visa - 309

Offshore/onshore: Onshore

Medicals submitted (yes/no): No, as I had medical submitted for my student visa less than a year ago.

Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes

Date CO assigned: Waiting...

Date visa granted: 11/07/11

VISA granted on 11/07/11 - 4 months after the application. Needless to say how helpful this forum was.

The waiting is worth. Hang on in there because in the end you will be rewarded.

Wish you all the best!

Talking

Update - I got my visa this evening! A letter was waiting for me when I got home and my visa has been issued since 12th July! Which means it was processed in a week! Can't believe this has happened to me I feel so lucky! Thank you so much to everyone on this forum - all the advise was brilliant and I actually could not have done it without you. I'm going to post my own thread now so any questions let me know

Date CO assigned: not known

Date visa granted: 12th July 2011

I lodged my visa in person at the Sydney office to the most bored looking man I've ever seen! I lodged while I was on a student visa but I've completely finished my studies which means I'm now on Bridging Visa A and can work full time while I wait - yay!

A couple of minor problems if any - I filled in the forms updated April 2011 rather than July 2011 but they told me it shouldn't be a problem - however I've read otherwise on this forum! Also my birth certficiate only has my name and not my parents' names but I did submit my passport and the guy on the phone said that should be fine.

What a weight off my mind! Soon I'll be putting together a list of what I included in my appliaction to help anyone else that needs it. This forum has been an absolute god send, especially for those of us who don't have agents. Thank you everyone and good luck
