It is actually suggesting a few things, not just that.

A petition with a single, clearly defined issue is much more likely to be looked at favourably.

Some valid points get lost when other points are already permitted.

You mention a "bridging visa option for 309 applicants for when they visit BEFORE the 309 is approved"..

The petition says: "and Medicare when the offshore applicant is in Australia ".

When they visit, even before the 309 is granted, they are already able to get Medicare, yet the petition is asking something that they are already eligible for.

When creating a petition, it is vital to ensure that there are no grounds to dismiss it due to inaccuracies or ambiguities.

Thanks JandE for your reply. You raise a good point and looking in to it I do see that you can apply for Medicare with a 309/100 application pending.

I am going to raise it with the organisers.

Might I also add that timing is an incredibly important factor when considering presenting a petition to Parliament. A last minute dash in the midst of a pandemic when people's mind are elsewhere and Parliament sittings are curtailed, is not a wise choice in my opinion.

That is correct.This is quoted on the petitions website:
Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on the House sitting pattern, some petitioning activities may be interrupted. This includes the presentation of petitions and ministerial responses which would normally occur when the House of Representatives is sitting.

From what I can see, the last petitions to get a response were in May. There will be a backlog to get through after this COVID is over.

One of the ones to get a positive response, in May, was:
Petition EN1385 - Shut the borders to Australia

Yes, I just realized based on my old post I did not know we can get medicare as 309 applicants.


However, this petition is mainly raising a voice to get offshore visa grants back on track. Especially since we are exempted to come into Australia on a 309 and we are all happy to pay for quarantine.

The wait is becoming unbearable to some of us especially with the global processing time increasing every year.

I satyed 3 months in Lebanon during the time we met and got engaged, I never got a chance to vist him between August 2017 to May 2018 i was waiting towards June July. After the refusal i visited him 2018 for 3 weeks and in 2020 i visited him 6months just came back to Australia. We are waiting for a rescheduled hearing from the AAT which was suppose to hapen in April 2020 its August NOW! I am hoping this can all work out soon.
Our migration agent stuffed us up abit with the evidence if i had applied my self i would of braind their system with evidence but we didnt send enough texts we did send over 200 photos together.

That was may problem i didnt have a wedding planner or proof of preparing because i wasnt sure what was going to happen. NOW WITH COVID their is now wedding just a small marriage with the celebrant whom i cant get a notice of marriage from because Melbourne is in Isolation and I am still Quarantined in Sydney. Its been crazy i have had enough and i am just furious when i see non genuine relationships getting their visa and coming to australia and breaking up and my fiance is still waiting.
Since I appealed for a review to the AAT in 2018 till now i have sent them over 1000 pages of call history over 200 pictures together and videos so many emails 2 psychologist report to get a priority hearing and still nothing!

Hello there,
If a prospective marriage visa is remitted through the AAT, does all the evidence we sent the AAT go to the immigration office with their decision??

Did anyone receive an automated email saying that your application is progressing exactly one year after lodging?
