No email to them because they are pretty much uncontactable. We have simply been updating our information every 2-3 months, at 6 months we uploaded an updated statement and some more 888s etc. Only thing we can really do 😊

It's a stressful situation but I found that running around trying to contact them just made the situation a whole lot more stressful.

We did send a request for compelling and compassionate escalation due to personal reasons which I won't go into here .. but the lebnon office responded almost within 2 days to say visas will be processed by date order. So I knew they were operating. And that was before the Department decided to prioritise spouse visas. (So they say - looks like onshore are taking the priority).

Keep positive everyone and I'm hopefully for a turn around after the financial year 🤞🤞

That petition seems to have issues that may cause it to be rejected quickly.

It is asking for, among other things: "Medicare when the offshore applicant is in Australia".

A 309 visa applicant is already eligible for Medicare when they are in Australia. www.servicesaustralia.gov.au

Please reread the petition! It is saying it is unfair that onshore and offshore applicants pay the same fee however onshore get the benefits of medicare amongst others, while offshore gets nothing until they get the grant!

Anyway, people who CARE please sign! Thanks 😊

What is your case? Where did you apply from? Is it 309 or 300? And how long have you been waiting?

So you want the Australian Govt to pay your medical bills in another country?

The application fee has nothing to do with Medicare

No ofc not, I don’t expect that at all! You are not getting the point!!!

820 grants are being given so fast now, while us offshore applicants are not getting grants! The person who made the petition just wnated to compare what 820 applicants are getting and what we are not (we don’t get the rights to work, study or other benefits as 820!)

Before 820 took around 2 years, now it is taking less timr to grant than 309!


The point is NOT about medicare or benefits!

It is about granting offshore visas since they said 309 visa is exempt while little grants are being given since covid! Some of us here have been waiting for 2 years or more!

THIS IS THE POINT!

some of us have been apart for too long from our partners and some have children too. This is the point!

I didn’t sign for medicare benefits! That is not what I care about!

Of course the 820 onshores are getting approved quicker. There are restrictions on entering Australia and how many can enter, just like there is in most countries around the world.
Australia is entering the 2nd wave of the virus currently and the Govt is doing its utmost to control this. This is why offshore visas have slowed right down.
Perhaps its you who is missing the point of this

Yea many countries are going through a second wave! We are happy to pay for quarantine and take the test! Many countries who still have cases every day have opened and you just have to quarantine and do the test!

It is something humanitarian! 820 are with their partners! We aren’t! We can’t even visit and it is difficult for them to leave! Some people apply more than 15 times for an exemption on their tourist visas! So it is even difficult to see our loved ones!

Anyway, I don’t see why you are attacking me if you applied for 309 as well! Seems odd. Usually people in our position are frustrated by the current situation.
