What I didn't understand is why they called to request info and why did they call him?
Unnecessary anxiety at night
They asked me to submit a marriage contract executed by the government in my home country though it was given to them. However, the request came via email.

Calling and asking your partner to submit it is very weird to me. It should come via email or through immi account as there will be a deadline for it with a failure to submit on time resulting in visa refusal or delay.

Look on the bright side, at least your application is being processed and not sitting somewhere collecting dust..

My wife had her interview in Dec-18 and after that nothing happened. Therefore, it would take some time and better to be patient.

Yeah thats the thing I dont understand, it seems like they are in rush for some reason, I sent the requested documents 10 mins after they called, I'm feeling very hopeful at least I know they are working on it and I have feeling we'll be granted the visa very soon.
Fingers crossed.

Yeah my fiance had interview in March. Was told by my acquaintance that their PMV got granted less than month post interview.

However, all of us currently applied since circa mid-2018 are sadly subject to longer grant times due to a myriad of reasons all not working in our favour.

Thankyou. It's hard, but we have no choice but to wait. Hope you get your grant soon.

My agent has brought up this thing with them. This is because they have everything ready so there is no reason for not granting the visa. They said we are still within average processing time and interviews, asking for documents is only standard procedure to complete the file.

If you guys unhappy with Beirut office you can complain to immigration. it is our right. Below is the link for which my agent used to complain

https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-...nd-suggestions

If more people providing negative feedback, immigration will start cracking down on them.

The circumstances that happened during our application is unfortunate, but let's hope for the best, thanks for you kind wishes.
