My application was only lodged a week earlier then yours, however, the C.O. sent email instead of call in November requesting further information.

My sponsor status says still submitted!!

Either way, my application is taking longer than my friends who got their grants in 5-6 months via Beirut office.

Hi All,

Applied for 309 when my wife was working in Dubai. So ended have my application processed from Beirut office.

Application lodged: 05 Nov 2018
Medicals Done: 21 Dec 2018
Request for Info: 02 Jan 2019
Sponsor status: Further Assessment
Applicant status : Further Assessment

The request for info was very vague as the checklist was asking for all documents to be submitted which was not done with the application. In my case all the required documents were submitted when we lodged the application. I did email them asking for more info, but haven't received any reply yet. Has anyone else come up with same issue ?

Now my wife has left her work in Dubai and moved back to her home country India. I hope change of country of residence won't change the application office and create a further delay to the application.

Also next year Jan 2020 we are having our wedding ceremony and my wife wants to come to Australia with me on tourist visa if her 309 is not approved by then. Does anyone know if we can apply for sponsored tourist visa while we have an application being processed for 309.

Thanks guys

Upload it. They will most likely request a new updated one so it will save potential delays

You can definitely apply for a tourist visa whilst the 309 is being processed. The applicant will need to satisfy the requirements of a visitor visa including the genuine temporary entrant criterion. Additionally, if the visa was granted, the applicant would need to depart Australia when his/her visa is ready for decision.

Thank you zol for your response. Just a question, do we need to do a separate medicals for tourist visa or medicals done for 309 would be sufficient.

Check this link for medical requirements.

You might not need to have all the health examinations again if you had any in the last 12 months. Your referral letter will tell you what examinations you need to take.
