Compelling & Compassionate Reasons for Priority Processing 309

Has anyone applied for Compelling & Compassionate Reasons for Priority Processing (309) due to fertility treatment?

Given that the nature of the medical treatment is particularly time sensitive, I wonder if the department will consider it? The long term implications of missing our window is significant and time is literally outside of our control. Our doctor is investigating what our options are but obviously this is extremely hard to achieve and the current travel bans make it impossible to arrange visits around cycles. I am at the outer limit age wise to be considered for IVF so I need to act now.

Is anyone else here dealing with this situation? Its terrifying to think our entire lives are in the hands of the department.

I also understand that many of you are pregnant or have babies and are separated from your partners which I completely empathise with, who are not being considered on these grounds which is just so unfair. I really feel for you. I am just reaching out to see if anyone else has experience in this particular situation or have any knowledge as to how this might be considered by a case officer.

Thanks so much for your time and my apologies in advance for the over share

There is no one answer unfortunately..it is really a case by case decision. It will a matter for you to ask the embassy and provide as much evidence as you can from your doctor supporting your request. It won't negativity affect your application if they say no.

But you will find that every person has a different reason for wanting to speed up the process so you will get a million different responses from here.

The only pattern this forum will give you is that it will be depending on your situation and the case officer who is reviewing it.

Birth of a child isn't a reason, but sometimes a high risk pregnancy might cut it... But then again there are regular visas being processed in fewer than 3 months with no reason and some waiting 2 years... There is really no uniformity with this. Not sure what your situation will entail but best you put the request and see what they say.

Best of luck with it all!
