I received an email from my case officer requesting more information, but was not given any of their contact information.

I've tried calling the service line listed in her email, and have emailed through the online form also listed, but was told both times that I'd contacted the wrong office.

Do I just reply back to the email that she sent (it seems like a very generic @immi.gov.au)?

Hate to be asking such a simple question, but I feel like I'm going crazy after waiting for an answer on my visa after all these months!

What are your case officer's initials (just because I'm curious)? Also, how long have you been waiting? Anyway, all the COs have the same email address format: [email protected] - so you can just use that to contact your CO if you don't want to use the generic email addy.

The quoted processing time for DC is 8-9 months right now, so you've still got a bit of a wait ahead of you. I waited almost 9 months, others have recently waited even longer (10 or 11 months). I had the same CO.

Partner visa 309/100

Hi

I am Australian and my husband American and we live in New York. We applied for 309/100 online on 6/29 to Washington. We have been married 12 years and are looking to move back to Australia. All documents have been uploaded except medical and police clearances. Payment has been deducted from credit card and waiting on a CO to be assigned

This has been a great thread, good luck to everyone!

Pmv

Good Morning,

Applied on June 10th, 2014 with all required documents including police checks as well as Health Check. As of 7/10/2014 no correspondence on who will be the CO. Is that normal? Also they have asked in the acknowledgement to contact the "Bellconnen office" in Australia; anyone else have experience with that?

Thanks!

"Bellconnen office?" That's definitely not one I've ever heard.

You applied through the Washington, D.C. embassy? Pretty typical not to necessarily hear if you're assigned a CO. If you've supplied medicals and a health check and the rest of your evidence, it's highly likely you won't hear from them until visa grant.

Thank you for the information! My wedding is planned for mid next month, I already foresee having to switch it to a 309.

Wow - you planned your wedding WAY too early. You do realize wait times through DC for the PMV are 8-9 months, right?

Be aware that if you switch to a 309 you're going to require more and greater evidence than a PMV requires. That's why many people try to make sure their wedding doesn't fall before their PMV is granted. You'll have to provide evidence that you've got shared/combined finances, shared household, etc., which are things that PMV applicants don't have to provide.

Yeah, we had planned our wedding date well in advance and were given some advice to wait and apply for a 801/309 after marriage since it would only take 3 months, obviously that advice was incorrect. I also read in other threads, the more evidence you submit the higher changes of the CO asking to switch the subclass over to a 309. Would it make sense to upload wedding invites, honeymoon trip booking confirms, etc. Does anyone recommend that?

Thanks!
