309 visa application from Nairobi Kenya.

Hey everyone,

just wondering if there is anyone applying from the Nairobi office. 2019 new year had me very excited and then I came back to this site and I now kinda feel like I have to adjust my expectations.

We applied September 5 2018 for a 309 partner visa. I have a 2 year old with my husband who is Australian. She has citizenship n lives with me. My immiaccount currently shows "further assessment" from 2018 16th Nov. I havent heard from anyone and I know I am in a high risk country.
Have provided medical and police records as had been requested.

Questions. Anyone here applying from the same office and got their 309 without too much hassle time wise and anything else? (Take that with a pinch of salt)

Anyone know exactly why the character federal police certificate is needed from Aussie sponsors and what exactly they need from it for a positive visa outcome. (Hope that makes sense)

I also applied through Nairobi for my PMV in June 2018. Medical and police checks submitted in August 2018. But the visa is yet to be granted, my dear. My fiancé lives in Australia. I am in Uganda. I think the best thing to do now is to patiently wait though not the easiest thing to do! I wish you luck

Thanks. You too!! Can I ask what your immi account reads? Mine reads further assessment. I wish I knew exactly what that meant. Last updated november 16th 2018 and since our months are not too far apart we can tell what month they are working on. It's a stretch but 🏾. Can you tell I am eagerly awaiting this visa?!
Thanks

I am just about to make my application thru the Nairobi office. My partner and I have 3 kids together who already have their AU passports. I am Kenyan but we are currently living in Uganda..
Does my hubby ( sponsor) need to be cleared first for sponsorship before I submit my application?
Thanks in advance

We applied through a Registered Migration Agent based in Australia who uses his immi account and all communications pass through him. So, i have no access to his immi account to know what it reads. But sometime in December, they requested for the form 80. The wait is killing but let's keep our hope. Do you know someone who has applied through Nairobi b4 and how quick they were? I also can't wait to have this visa granted. I have not seen my fiancée for quite a long time... Fingers crossed

The best person to answer that would be a migrated agent if they see this. It seems like it's a new law. But I don't know if it's been implemented yet? Maybe check the home affairs website. Personally, I applied in Sept. 5 2018 and I applied first and then he also submitted his sponsorship online. I haven't heard from the offices apart from an auto generated message to get biometrics done and medical. I did that and police clearance for both me and my sponsor husband. Everything seems ready from our perspective.

Hope that helps.

So glad to find other Nairobi Kenya application people on here.

I think they must be looking at your application. Does you agent know approximately how long it may take after asking for info? There's someone on this thread asking about sponsors having to be approved, would you happen to know if this is true? Did your sponsor apply the paper format of SP40, I see there's a slot here for that on immi even though mine did the online version. So confused.

New here... Any news or updates from Kenya, Nairobi. Are the visa applications from Nigeria processed in Nairobi or Pretoria?

Hi,

I found this on Nigeria.embassy.gov.au
Visa applications from Nigeria

All visa applications to Australia from Nigeria are processed through the Australian High Commission in Pretoria, South Africa. For more detailed information on the visa application process, please visit Pretoria’s Visa and Migration website.

Please Google this to confirm since I could be wrong about it. Hope it helps.

Hi everyone, just found this thread, thanks to who ever who started it!

My partner (de facto) is Ethiopian, me Australian. We are both currently living in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

We submitted and paid for his Stage 1 - Partner or Prospective Marriage Visa (300,309/100,820/801) application on 1st July 2018. Last updated by us on 8th July 2018 with all required attachments, a whole lot of evidence and everything else they ask for.

The only communications we have had was in the first week we submitted, to get his health check. After we completed this the app status on our Immi page then changed to "Further Assessment". Mine, as the Sponsor, has not changed the whole time from "Submitted".

We are friendly with the Embassy staff here in Addis, who have told us that we will be processed through Nairobi. I don't have much information on processing times other than 2 (married) couples also Ethiopian-Australian offshore applicants who received theirs both under 6 months in 2017.

I have heard from other couples that it appeared to have helped them to update their application after submission with new evidence or any changes to contact details. It seems to have triggered the case officer with some applications, as they received their visa shortly after making an update. Others were triggered seemingly by applying for a visitor visa while the partner visa was in processing. We will be doing both of these things by the end of the month and will keep everyone posted with how it goes for us...
