Checklist for Partner Visas 100

CG, you didn't come across as dismissive (but thank you for being sensitive to that possibility). You did come across as being
quite sure of yourself, and I don't think there is anything wrong with that.
I guess now that I have laid out the problem in more detail, you can see a bit more clearly where I am coming from.

I think people like you, me and Whitney who have a bit of knowledge of the system and can understand the language and can express ourselves relatively well are very fortunate. I feel for those who don't have that expertise.

If you are waiting for an answer on an application, I trust all will go well for you. I sent away the last of my wife's papers this afternoon. I'm hoping that all things being equal it will all be in the bag by Christmas, which will give us something to celebrate.

Thanks Chunchang. I am waiting on a visa myself, yes. Applied back in April, so we are hoping against hope to hear something in September. Our case is complicated by medical issues, so we're not sure of an approval. It's scary. It's one of the reasons I spend so much time around here - it's the only way to help stem the anxiety from waiting.

Best of luck to you and your wife with your application.

That's because the question stresses that it wants to know about any (and it underlines the word any) travel since the grant of the 309 visa, which necessarily entails travel TO Australia from the country in which the visa was granted.

In fact, why the question is asked is beyond me. Apart from the fact that the Department of Immigration can find out about the movements of the applicants and their dependents into and out of Australia at the press of a few computer keys, what does it matter? As I understand it, once the 309 visa is granted and activated by arriving in Australia, applicants and their dependents have the legal right to come and go from the country as, when and as many times as they please.

But then again, you wonder why, when filling in these forms for the 100 visa (as I understand it, when you apply for the 309 visa you are technically applying for the 100 visa, too) why do applicant, partner and dependents have to supply copies of the very same passport pages that the department obtained copies of, and would obviously have on file, when the original application was made?
I can only imagine the reasons behind this is to see if the applicant needs to provide overseas police checks. Of course they can check their system to see all the details, but if we can write it down, i guess it will be easier to process especially when there are thousand cases. For the passport page, we may be giving them the same passport copies as before, but there are people who have changed passport due to various reasons since the initial partner visa application, DIAC will need to know if there's any change. To me this is like an exam, I would just try my best to score my visa. There are lots of things I don't like about the forms etc, if I start thinking too much it will just do my head in. I just do it and wait for the final outcome.

hi Collegegirl,
i hope you would not mind if i ask what makes your medicals complicated because my medicals were referred to the Medical Officer of the Commonwealth of Australia for assessment on the 20th of August 2013 due for the reason that my blood pressure went up due to tension or let us say white coat syndrome i already done my Createnine test (normal) and I am already cleared from my Cardiology examination because I was automatically got a referral to a Cardiologist, i am still anxious and worried because i really do not know what's going to be the result of tomorrows assessment. I hope that this will not mess up all the effort that my husband and I made for my SC 309 application ( lodged Feb. 28,2013)

Wow, so much paper work to do even for the 2nd stage. Sigh~
So, if you don't mind, ChunChang, has your wife got the visa now?
