Hey everyone, just wanted to share some good news. My husband and I got granted our Spouse visa 309 and 100 this week! Because we've been together for a long time they granted the Provisional 309 and then immediately granted the Permanent 100 visa as well.

We originally lodged 21st May 2018, were contacted with request for more information (including medicals and police checks) 13th August 2018, we were able to supply everything within 6 weeks then amazingly got our grant only a month later!

We are extremely excited to get our grant in only 6 months (actually only 24 weeks = 168 days) as we were expecting it to take a minimum of 9-12 months (because we are from a "high risk" country). Thought I'd pass along the information to give other people hope, even though the "service standards"/processing times currently say 75% within 13 months and 90% within 17 months there are definitely some being issued much earlier than that. :-)

We used a MARA registered agent as our case had a few complex issues that needed to be addressed and the application was lodged online. We provided very detailed supporting information and statements. Hope everyone else here doesn't have to wait too long for their grants too. We're now making plans to move to Oz in February, YAY - very excited.

My story is Lodged application at VFS on March 9th (we gave police clearance for both of us with the application)
Then I went to Melb on tourust visa, and stayed with my husband for 3 months.
On 6th June i received email from AHC to go for medical and more info req.
The more info was only financial aspects of relationship. I did the medical on 12th June (i was back in SL). We did not have much financial aspects to show, no joint account or any assets in both names. I gave a letter explaining that.
On July 19th i sent a letter to AHC asking the status of my application, received email back saying its still under assessment. Same day later i got a immi56 again asking for more info, this time social/financial/household evidence.
Provided all that on July 24th and waiting now.
I wonder how long it takes from info request to grant?
Why AHC request twice more info? they should have asked at the initial more info request
Any 309 grants in this month from the Colombo AHC anyone know of?
thanks
