Partner Visa 309 - Travel back to AUS while awaiting final decisions

Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering if my girlfriend who is a daughter of a parent applying for their partner visa can visit Australia while awaiting a decision. I believe that all paperwork has been done, even the interviews and medical checks. The application began about 3 months ago.

My girlfriend is 17 and has a student visa that I believe expires the end of next year.

They are both from Iran.

Is it possible she can be in Australia while they decide and then travel back to Iran to receive the final decision?

Waiting for this visa is tough

I'm also worried because it is a high risk country, that the processing will take quite some time. Does anyone have an idea if the processing times have changed from the .gov website?

If they hold a valid visa then they are able to travel to Australia under the conditions of that visa.

It is advisable to upload a note on their Immi account to let immigration know of their intentions. That way they can inform your partner when they are ready to make a decision and she can then leave the country.

Note - she only needs to be offshore for the decision not necessarily Iran.

The times published on Immi site website are the best guide you will get, it is updated at their whim so depending on when you last checked yes it could have been updated.
