The reason for the refusal is because we have a valid marriage certificate which means we can't apply for 300 we have to apply for 309. Imane only explained that to me after I demanded to know the reason for the refusal.
What confused me is why would she ask for a marriage certificate if we are applying for 300? Seems like a trap
Thankfully we don't have to start a new application, all I had to do was fill out the first page of 47sp which states that the application type is 309 and send it back to her by email (she asked me do that).
I was very frustrated and disappointed last night but at least there was a way out.
I contacted a migration agent regarding this issues and he said that this won't take a long time and I can expect a grant in the next week.
I hope I do get it because I've reached my patience limit.
Hope whoever is waiting hears some good news very soon.


Ayata i know someone who went through the same complication as this.. but i think they did not get the refusal however, they were just told her that even though she was engaged (but had her kateb kteb done) that is still considered marriage and so she changed the application type of while they were processing. Hopefully this can be fixed! No stress!! All the best

If you are married you cannot apply for 300 visa. The name of the visa itself is explanatory "prospective marriage visa". Are you both married?

Abdo i think they were just islamically married, in some countries traditions are to have ur ‘kateb kteb’ done if u are engaged (some families just prefer it to be done this way)

Islamically we are married and in the Iraqi government we are married and I did supply them with a Islamic marriage certificate explaining that its in our tradition and religion to be Islamically married, I submitted the Iraqi Marriage Certificate because she asked for it and I was hesitant that if I didn't supply the document there will be a delay.

However, we have received no correspondence from them since then, and not even a phone call!
It says "further assessment" on our immi form, however it used to be 13 to 17 months but it is now 15 to 20 months.

Looking at everyone else's posts now, I am worried that since we haven't received a phone call, that it's a bad sign! Has anyone heard from anyone else or has had this experience? Will they call us? Why has it taken so long!

Also, the CO I had in my first email was different from the one in my second email. I wonder what that means.
Hi Orkideh,
I am from Iran too, I lodged my application on October 1st and received the document request Email on November 28th, estimated time is exactly as yours and still no contact
Is it possible to contact you through whatsapp or telegram To share more details?
It would be appreciated if you send your contact information to the Email address below :
[email protected]
Thank you

Hello everyone,

I am PMV subclass 300 , from iraq

I just got an email requesting more information from Beirut office.

The requested information are:

1. Letter from marriage celebrants confirming the date of marriage
2. Police clearance for the sponsor issued by Australian Federal Police.

We already uploaded the NOIM from the church and the police clearance of my fiancé, but they requested the information again

Do we have to ask for the NIOM and police clearance again?

Has the date you previously had set for the wedding passed?? Maybe if it has get a letter with a new date from a marriage celebrant, and same with police clearance if expired you may need to re apply for one. However if not, just reupload what you already have and leave a note saying you have already submitted them, but definitely reupload what you have to avoid any delays.
