Exactly, we have been waiting for so long, i have seen they are granting 309 more quickly now. I read 3 people who got their 309 visas granted this week.

I’m sure they would since they won’t be working on any other visa

I really truly believe everyone in this situation needs to escalate the matter

That only works for the countries/cities in the dropdown box on the webpage,

There are no options for me to click in the list (i'm in argentina), so i have to go click through other departmental contacts.. which leads to me only one option.. snail mail to aus embassy in brazil!

This was all told to me by immi on the phone.

Now we have national quarantine here, i cant even go out to send a letter, let alone print one!

Just applied for a waiver last night from the USA (my partner and I are engaged,) and I was granted it a couple of hours ago. My partner and I are ecstatic, we've just had to spend six months apart and were five days away from seeing each other again. We were devastated, but it all ended up working out in the end!

Can you please explain? Did you already have the visa 300? And what waiver?

No, I was scheduled to come in on a 600. No idea what office processed it, the first time I looked at the form it had the drop-down box with offices, then when I went back it had a bunch of boxes to tick and a place to explain your circumstances and prove that you're the immediate family of an Australian citizen or permanent resident. I didn't have to select an office. If granted, it allows you to travel to Australia (though I would recommend printing it out to show the airline, although in the 'grant notice' it says the airline will call the Australian Border people to confirm you can get on.

Does it give a time limit or entry by date? Or just that you have permission to enter on your original visa conditions?

It doesn't give a time limit or entry date, it just says I can arrive while my current visa is valid.
