I don't feel comfortable sharing that address, but if you received an RFI it should fill it for you.

Our situations may be a bit different as we waited until we were requested to complete our Medical Examination. As such, the body of my email largely referenced how they had asked for it one year ago, and given it was set to expire we requested they review our case prior to their expiration.

See above, if you have received an RFI you can simply 'reply' to that email.

Congratulationsss!!! thats great news
I'm just wondering about the medical examination, ours was requested from IMMIaccount directly, so we dont really have someone who emailed us.
not sure why was it like that ... I wish they had emailed us

Any news on 309s

Hi all

Seems like its pretty quiet on the 309 processing out of DC. We applied in April last year and just got the 18month automated reply. Reading different forums it looks like 309's are processing at about 20% of previous levels. Im intrigued to know if there is a big batch sitting ready for visas (once borders open) or if all processing is on hold. (You would like to think if things are just waiting for borders to be opened again that any visas to be declined would still be moving (IE notifications being sent out) and folks not having to be disappointed when things open up again)

Finally

Hi everyone,

I know how much I checked this forum when I was waiting so I will make sure to post my good news!

I was finally granted my 309! It's not as if I can travel yet anyways thanks to COVID but at least I feel the relief of being approved. Just wanted you all to know that applications ARE still being approved. Hopefully Australia, as well as everything else, begins opening back up soon.


No Agent
Submitted: September 8th, 2019
RFI: September 20th, 2019
All Documents Uploaded Including Medicals: Mid October 2019
Visa 309 Grant Notice: September 4th, 2020

Every few months I made sure to upload any job, income, or address changes as well as any new pictures together.

A few extra tidbits that I always looked for in others' comments.

We've been together 7 years now. Long distance for around 5 with visiting each other every 6 months. I lived in Australia for a year on a work and travel visa from 2017-2018. Then we both came back together to go live in the US. My now husband (Australian) came on a US Fiance Visa in August 2018 and we married in September 2018. After living in the US we both realized that we were happier in Australia. We've now been married for 2 years and can't wait to begin the rest of our lives in Australia for good!

Your approvals will come soon. Please don't give up hope!

Hi all. Need advice on what to do to cancel a visa.

My then-partner was applying for the Aus visa from the US (offshore, 309/100). I filled in everything on her behalf. We applied August last year but we split up end of April this year and the 309 was approved in mid May. I haven't had the heart to do anything about it since, but obviously it's not going to be used, she's staying over there because we're not together anymore. Do I have to cancel it (I can't upload new documents) or do I just leave it to expire? Cheers.

You can't cancel it you need to notify the department of the split. It's in the grant docs how to go about it

Found out she has to fill out the 1022 form and submit it through the enquiry form. Thanks for your help.

Technically both parties should notify the dept.
As a sponsor you can notify them.

Congrats on all approved. Quick question for those approved. After approval, how long did you/ do you have to enter Australia? Thanks!

I have exactly a year from the approval date to enter Australia. I believe that's standard for approval of 309.
