Has your husband applied for an ETA before?

I was reading on another thread/forum that this was happening to a lot of people in a similar boat as us. They figured that the partner visa was capped and it may be because their 309/100 is being processed and they will have it very soon--beginning of July. Most of these individuals were from India so I wasn't sure if it would work out the same way for those of us who applied in DC. I guess it is the same. I will try applying for the ETA myself just to see what happens

Just applied for the ETA and was granted it immediately. This is weird. Has your husband applied for the ETA in the past?

Yes, he has been to Australia every couple of years for the past 21 years on ETAs. So odd. Glad yours came through straight away. Assuming no response from your CO?

Yes, no response. I'll keep you updated if I hear anything... I hope something works out soon for you. Even this ETA option isn't a great alternative. I turned down two engineering jobs and am just sitting here (unemployed) waiting for my grant lol. It is very frustrating... At least now I can visit once I get my cat shipped out. Hoping our 309/100s are granted soon.

That must be so frustrating to be turning down jobs when you aren't currently working! We are both still working in the US for now. Really hoping the partner visa comes through in the next month. It's felt like we are so close for months now.

We went ahead and applied for the e600 tourist visa yesterday. Hopefully that goes smoothly, or the partner visa comes through soon.

I hope that works out for you... Does your husband have a fairly new passport? I just got a new (US) passport and it is very different then the old one. It feels like there is some sort of electronic technology inside... Maybe your husband has an outdated passport that doesn't support the ETA? It may be a stretch but it's just a thought I had.

Thanks Res12345. His passport was issued mid-2015, so not very old.

The e600 visitors visa was granted this afternoon, after filing last Thursday evening. Insanely fast since they said it could be 36 days, and we are so grateful that my husband can at least visit Australia while we wait for the 309/100 to come through. The granted him 6-month visitor visa with in/out privileges.
