The Australian Government has reduced the number of places available under the Other Family category from 585 in the 2013-14 financial year to 500 in the 2014-15 financial year.

Most of the 500 Other Family visa places will be allocated to the Carer visa category with fewer places allocated to the Remaining Relative and Aged Dependent Relative visa categories. This reflects the priority that is given to the Carer visa by the Australian Government.

The department cannot predict processing times for Other Family category visas in future program years. Waiting times for applicants with queued applications or applications that have not yet been assessed may vary due to a number of factors including:

changes in planning levels
number of visa lodgements, withdrawals and refusals
Migration Review Tribunal remits
Ministerial Intervention cases.

Applied for Offshore 309 Visa- 19th of July.

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Next time I will see my partner will be 11th of March.

If i don't have a CO by January I am going to have to pack up everything and leave my full time job which I have already left before and than obviously not be able to work in America so I will have no income My partner and I will have already been apart for a total of 8 months this year I am not going through it again next year! I wish immigration could understand how hard it is for us to be apart from our loved ones

P.S If it says "Organise your health examinations" does that mean someone has looked at our application or does that just pop up as soon as you do your application cause I don't remember seeing that when looking at our application when it was first submitted. But I could be wrong just wondering if this was the same for everyone else. You think by saying that it urges to get people to get their medicals done yet they say wait until a case officer is assigned to do it. I think my boyfriend is going to get it done next week and lets just prey to god that we get approved within the next year!

You can't call and request an interview, but honestly that doesn't matter - DC very, very rarely does interviews. Only usually if they suspect there's something fraudulent with your application, or if you've spent a lot of time in a high-risk country. They'll call you if they want to interview you - typically it's done by phone these days.

Is there a reason you're posting this? The "Other Family" category of visas is a completely different category of visa from Partner Visas. None of this applies to Partner Visa applicants.

It is the struggle falling in love with people from the other side of the world. My wife and I have never had to be apart, but having family this far apart is hard. When we moved to the states we made 1/2 the family happy and 1/2 sad.. Now that we want to move back, the people who were sad are now happy and the ones happy now sad... I think it's my kids who make them so happy or sad.. Can't think any one really cares where I live ... Hang in there it will happen.. And heck if you have to live here you should be able to find work.. We have millions of illegals working in America and more showing up every day ...

It doesn't indicate anything, unfortunately. You can do your medicals at any time, of course, but that link isn't them requesting them. It's just something automated. If they wanted to request them, or they want any sort of information from you, they'll email you or call you - they don't communicate with applicants through ImmiAccount.

Thanks guys!! I thought that was for all family visas I guess not! thank god collegegirl! I hope we are approved by january, and I am definitely not going to work illegally not worth it Heats but thanks for the idea I just want to be with my partner more than anything else in the whole entire world. But because I just spent 6 months in America I am not allowed back there until October so I am going to go there for a month. Guess I just got to make the most of our time together and pray to god that a miracle happens and we are reunited in january 2015!
