I think this is for the end of the financial year and after July we will see grants hopefully.

Hello All,
I would like to know if anyone has applied for a visitor visa, while already lodged a Partner Visa 309 (offshore) to the Beirut embassy.
Has anyone been successful? If yes, what did you provide?
Did you use an agent or yourself?
Does it impact your Partner Visa at all?

I have the same question as well?
because it takes so long time to get a partner visa maybe that would be reasonable to use a tourist visa as well.

but I think after partner visa granted you should re-enter Australia because your partner visa was offshore.

using an agent or not?
what would be the length of a tourist visa for the first-time visit?
any effect on current partner visa processing time?

hope to see new grants after EOFY.

Before the partner visa is finalised, a 309 applicant in Australia on a Visitor visa, will be asked to leave, so that the decision can be given while they are offshore.
If the decision is a grant, they can then return on the new 309 visa.

Some people can get a 12 month visitor visa, but I feel they have generally had a 3 month one prior to the offshore partner visa application.
Even with the 12 month one, many need to exit every 3 months.

Not everyone is granted a visitor visa while waiting, as Immigration do not want people using it as just a means to live in Australia. They need to give a good reason.

Look I'm not an expert, but I have seen few of them getting family sponsored tourist visa approved even with partner visa in process. Also quite a few have been rejected mainly because immigration thinks that they will overstay their tourist visa.

I think we can stipulate length we would like, but its left upto immigration to decide. I'm thinking of applying for tourist myself If I don't see a grant in next couple of months.

Luckily, Beirut office is still processing applications. I saw one grant yesterday for Oct 18 application in facebook group. So not long before Nov 18 applications start getting their grants.

It does look like some African nationalities take longer than others.
I've not seen any from Ethiopia.
Ethiopia happens through the Kenyan office and we had a grant a few months back. At around 8/9 months which seems to be how long the Kenyan offices take according to the document from home affairs I found on the Berlin thread. There's a Kenyan 309/100 thread somewhere.


I have lodged my 300 on Friday and they send an email requestin biometric collection on Monday. Do they normally request for more information the next day after lodging the application? And also is it true there is no interview from kenya?

From just reading the forums on here. The Pretoria office is really slower than most. The kenyan office is not as slow. There's a Kenyan 309/100 active thread and if you scroll down the thread, it has a document that gives average processing times for 2017/2018 on all consulates/centres. It can give you an idea. Kenya doesn't seem to give interviews either. No one on that forum has said they got an interview, just email communication. Regardless, I keep my phone active waiting to be called. 😅


Is it true there is no interview from kenya?because I lodge my 300 last week on Friday and they request biometric collection on Monday
