AAT waiting times and further advice

Hi everyone

I applied for a visa subclass 300 (prospective marriage) in March of 2018 and was refused on the 12th of November 2018. On the same day, I called a migration agent and sent off an application for review with the AAT. Fast forward one year and I’m still waiting for an AAT reply or any sign of hope.

Since the rejection of the visa 300, I have legally married my fiancÚ according to the government rules and regulations of the country which she is from (Vietnam). I will now submit this to the AAT.

Does the AAT prioritise cases where circumstances change after the refusal was given (in my case, I got married even though the case was rejected, as life goes on). There is information on the AAT website which states that “subclass 300 cases where the review applicant and the primary visa applicant marry after the primary decision but before the review is finally determined” under prioritised cases.

I am thinking of moving overseas whilst waiting for a decision or call from the AAT for a hearing/conference. I would be moving to Vietnam after I graduate with my university degree in April of 2020.

What’s everyone’s experience with current waiting times and how the AAT operates?

Any information is appreciated very much.

Kind Regards

Vu.

You applied for a sc 300 visa which was rejected, submitted an AAT application and in the meantime you have been legally married. I am confused as to what you hope to achieve from the AAT?

Would you not be better off applying for a sc 309/100 visa (off shore) and withdraw your AAT application?

I am not a RMA and stand corrected if I am wrong but your circumstances no longer fit the sc 300 visa?

Policy where subclass 300 applicants wed is to proceed with the application as a 309.

Since you have retained the service of a registered migration agent, you might be well advised to consult your agent.
