Hi Hoda, I called when thje protest began in lebanon to the sydney immigration they said they will only escalte the case and of course put it as priority if you can prove that your partner is in danger. i asked what evidence they needed and they said they can not tell me but they will either approve it or tell me that im still in processing times. i didnt end up sending and evidence as their office opened back up, in 11 days ill be at 1 year !

Thank you very much for replying so fast.
Lets hope they will look at it soon, a year is long time.
The situation in Iraq really bad now. How can we prove that they are in danger like everyone else in Iraq.

No Worries

In My opinion things like screenshots of news reports and press images etc, honeslty not sure what else would be considered as evidence?

I emailed them as my husbands PCC and medical have expired and he’ll probably soon need to go to Baghdad to renew them as we’ve been waiting 15.5 months.
I emailed the Beirut embassy asking what he should do in this instance as Baghdad is too unsafe to travel to at the moment and they’re not allowed people through the check points either.
I never received a reply from the embassy.

You still can send an email but if it wasn’t really urgent the wouldn’t reply to the email.
Huda why do you think he have to do the biometrics and the health assessment in Baghdad ?
If he’s in Australia he can do it here.
And if not he have to do it anywhere he got no options except doing it.
In Jordan I did biometrics and health assessment he still can travel to jordan to do it I guess. Call TLScontact to ask about your matter if he can do it there , and Dr’s there are some panel dr’s around the same location of TLScontact.
The embassy I send them emails they always replied within 2 weeks sometimes 3-5 days.
But when you send an email make sure to list all the information and the subject of the email is very important there is a code for urgency.

Provide biometrics
Applicants outside Australia
You will need to provide your biometrics at an Australian Visa Application Centre (AVAC) or an Australian Biometrics Collection Centre (ABCC) if you apply:
for a visa that is part of the biometrics program
from a country that is part of our biometrics program
See the countries that are part of the biometrics program
You can:
submit your visa application in person at the AVAC and provide your biometrics while you are there
apply online or by post. If we send you a letter to let you know we want your biometrics you must come into the AVAC or ABCC so we can collect them.
Find an AVAC or an ABCC
Applicants within Australia
We will tell you if you need to provide biometrics.
If you apply for a new visa that requires biometrics outside Australia and then enter Australia on a new visa that does not, we won't grant the new visa until you provide them.
Arrange the collection of your biometrics from the Department of Home Affairs office in the country you applied from.
What we collect
We will:
take a photo of your face with a digital camera
scan all 10 of your fingertips with a digital finger scanner
Applicants must have a parent or guardian with them if they are:
aged under 16
incapable of understanding biometrics collection
For applicants outside of Australia we don't collect fingerprints of children aged under 5. We only take their photograph.
For applicants within Australia we don't collect fingerprints of children aged under 10. We only take their photograph.
If your face or fingerprints are injured
Wait until any temporary injury to your face or fingerprints has healed before you provide biometrics.
If you are missing a finger, we will collect fingerprints of your remaining fingers.
Contact your AVAC or ABCC to find out if you can still give fingerprints if you have a mehndi or other temporary decoration of your hands or fingers.
If you wear glasses or a religious head covering
We will still collect your photo.
Your face must be clearly visible from the bottom of your chin to above your eyebrows, including both cheeks and both ears. You might have to remove your head covering or glasses. If you do:
your photo and fingerprints will be collected in private
you can ask to have them collected by someone of the same gender
Pay
AVACs and ABCCs charge a service fee for biometrics collection. Find out more about these fees from our service providers overseas.
Who we ask to provide biometrics
If you apply for an Australian visa we might ask you to provide us with:
a photo of your face
fingerprints
Some applicants only need to provide a photo of their face. We don't collect an applicant's fingerprints if they are:
younger than 5 years old (outside Australia), or younger than 10 years old (for applicants within Australia)
incapable of understanding what biometrics are for
physically unable to provide fingerprints
What we use biometrics for
We use your biometrics to identify you. This helps to:
protect you from identity fraud
make travel to Australia safer
secure our borders
We store the biometrics you give us. When you enter Australia, we might take your biometrics again and compare them to your stored biometrics to confirm your identity.
We collect, store and use your biometrics in line with the requirements of the Migration Act and the Privacy Act.
Who we check biometrics with
We may check your biometrics with other Australian or international agencies to verify:
your identity
your criminal history
your protection status
How we store biometrics
We store your photos and fingerprints in a secure database. Only authorised officers can access the database.
