I wish us all visas by MARCH!!

This is a good find!! Based on my experience this information is accurate!

Because we have news - my partner received his grant last Friday! That's 8 months processing time for us. As you know, it was all starting to drag on... but now we have relief.

Our application was front loaded back in July last year, we had no commutations from the dept during processing, at all.

Advice - be patient and it will just surprise you one day!

Congratulations on your visa grant!! Great news indeed! I hope we all have similar timelines if not less!! That's the best prayer I can make.

Did they call to interview or anything like that?

No call nor interview! No communications just a grant email early Friday morning last week. I suppose the fact that our application was complete at the time we submitted meant that they didn't have a need to contact us. Plus we updated it by uploading a few more attachments in January (photos, joint travel records etc.) may have helped push them along to assign someone to look at our case.

Good luck for the rest of you!

So I sent an email to immi to find out about a visitor visa 600? Has anyone applied for one successfully while on their 309 waiting time? I got this reply. I'll attach it above.

We applied September 5th. We are on month 7 going on 8 in April.

Thank you for your email. Please note that that you can apply for another Visitor visa application as you wait processing for the Partner visa application. At this time , we cannot guarantee that the application shall be successful until an assessment is completed by a case officer and all requirements are met .



Please advise what new evidence you have provided so that we can check if the documents have been uploaded in the immi account.

On immi, the please confirm if you have attached...wasn't clicking.

For us we applied tourist visa 600(Sept 2018) right after we applied 309(Aug 2018), it took so long to process but it was approved. And it worked alright as we travelled Oz in december while our visa was still at an early stage. They require strong financial Evidence to support as a genuine tourist and strong ties to return home (job,title deed,own property, family, school), statement /invitation letter, Proof of previous travel, bank statements, money remittance (western union, bank transfers)payslips, employment contract,acknowledment letter of partner visa.

So not the standard 28 days? That's a lot of evidence. Are you still in Australia, if so, did you take a leave off work? We are thinking if we hit the one year mark, it might be a good idea to take this visit visa. But I dunno what I can put as strong ties to come back when hubby and baby are with me 😋.

I wonder if you'll be getting your visa soon? Jana123 got their visa grant and they were a July app and your August. I'm a Sept app. Cross fingers, toes and tongue. Lol

Hi, yes we still in Australia, I was not employed, mine was own business and study. I wish we could tell when will get the 309,it can be pretty frustrating staying in this limbo. Hope/think you will get your visa soon,when you have a child seperated with dad heard the department is more considerate (but ofcourse there so many other things affecting the process).
