Be aware that many Visa applications are now being outsourced overseas to other Australian embassies in other countries. I was told that this is as a result of the high refugee and immigrant intake. My Visa took 2 years and was processed by some faceless person in Cairo Egypt. The visa was cancelled despite being told by the immigration agent in Sydney that our documentation was superb. I read between the lines and assume the application was rejected because I was getting the agent to put pressure on the people in Cairo. There was no feedback on progress at any time and no request for additional documentation. The other reason may have been someone called immigration and suggested I was paid a substantial sum of money by my wife to sponsor her visa. I was refused access to any documentation regarding the claim and under The Privacy act the name of the person making the akllegation cannot be revealed as I want to sue for defamation of character

Is it for Onshore 801?
I know that they outsource if application is made offshore and the applicant is from High Risk nation.

My 820 was processed in Cairo. The CO requested additional documents after 6 months and the visa was finalized within 7 months. I was surprised as I was prepared to wait 16-22 months as per published processing time. I am from high risk country, that maybe why my application was sent there.

I think the officer still have to finalised your visa based on legislation and I don't think putting pressure on them would be the reason visa was rejected. Did they tell you someone reported you about the money paid by your wife? They would still have to investigate the fact though. I can't imagine they refused the visa just based on the claim. Did you provide the reason why your wife was giving you the money (if any)?

They need to make their decision within legislation and refuse on that basis.

I dealt with the embassy in Cairo when we lodged my husband's PMV and if I am honest I did pester them quite a bit about when it would be finalised (along with a few others too) & none of our visas were rejected.

The complaint could have been made anonymously. However, immigration would have investigated it. Immigration do have the powers to contact banks and obtain all your bank statements. Would the bank statements have revealed anything of concern to them?

Was this for the 820? I was of the understanding that only the first stage was being processed at some overseas posts.
