Visitors VIsa

Hi Rick
I guess we have a common problem dealing with the department of immigration. I went to the immigration office on franklin street and they have no answers and don't know where to find them either, their chosen reply is refer to our website.
I notice you have decided to apply for your fiancée to visit Australia while you wait for the PMV. My question is did u apply for this online ? Did U need to mention that U had applied for a PMV ?? What supporting documents did U need to supply and which forms were needed to be filled??? What is the turn around to get a response for this VISA and during the time your fiancée is in Australia and the PMV is obtained does she need to leave the country to obtain the PMV???
I am in the northern suburbs of Adelaide.
Cheers

Hi Waiting65
I have been using a migration agent here in Adelaide & it just so happens that she is Russian so it has been good in that she can communicate with my wife really easily and she knows exactly what is required for us to hopefully get a positive outcome. We have applied for a 309 spouse visa as we got married last November when my wife last visited. She left Australia on the 8th Decand our visa application was lodged on line on 13th Dec.
We both went to Thailand in march for 2 weeks. We made that our honeymoon.
I have only posted our tourist visa application off last Friday, we are told we should have an answer 1-2 weeks. If this is granted we will need to advise the department of this & if she is here she will need to leave the country for the 309 to be granted. I had to write a letter about our relationship & supply bank statements. They want evidence that my wife would return to Russia eg. property leases & work commitments. But really there is no reason for her wanting to return to Russia. Hopefully they will see that we want to be together. She is my wife after all & we haven't seen each other in 5 months.
hopefully they show some compassion!!! forms to use 1149 & 1418.

VISA Received

Howdy folks

I have just been informed by my fiancée that she has been granted her PMV, the e-mail has arrived. The original case officer did mention that it should be sorted by the middle of August, she did keep to her word. Thank you to all of you who provided me with feedback and also the advice of not to take the advice given by the European service centre to seriously. After I spoke to them on the 15th of august I Was quite depressed.
Once again thank U to one and all, I wish you all the best and hope U all waiting for your respective loved ones receive good news. I wish you all well.

Hi Waiting1965,

How long have you been together before you applied for the visa? After you applied for the visa how long take for the immigration asked for the medical examination? Do you mind if I ask how old are you and your fiance?

For everyone, can someone inform me that if age of applicant is a factor (my fiance and I both are 34 years old) ? How about education (both of us have master degree)? Job (both of us have professional job)? What is the main factors for some visa going faster than others?

When we applied in June the Australia Embassy in Moscow website said the visa processing time was 6-8 months. After July than changed for 10-14 months! So we are really lost for how long going to take.

We applied after 1 week the immigration requested the medical examination, the medical examination was done, after that no more words from them.

thanks a lot.

Response

Hi Waitingvisa

I shall answer your questions as bullet points

• Met my fiancée January 2013, spoke on skype till July 2013
• Went to Belarus in august 2013 to meet her and spent 2 weeks with her went to Lithuania for a 5 days while there, together, as well when I was there. ( mentioning this as it is mentioned in my application and photographs taken there were sent with my application).
• Came back to Australia and organised all the necessary documents and sent it to Belarus for them to be sent to Moscow. ( Always use DHL or a courier company Australia post courier service a nightmare)
• Application was finally lodged on the 08th of December 2013
• Needed one form to be completed short delay was done and sent by email middle of December 2013
• No contact at all after that
• Interview via telephone first week of April 2014
• Medicals earliest date available in Minsk was 07th May 2014
• No contact after that for 4 weeks.
• I sent them one e-mail to confirm receipt of the medicals and all was clear they acknowledged around the 10th June 2014
• Contacted the Europe service centre via telephone first week of July 2014, I was informed application is being processed and takes time.
• Contacted the Europe service centre again on the 15th of August 2014 and was told it could take 12 months to wait, bloody depressing that was.
• Joined this forum and was told by “From Belarus” how not to take the Europe service centre information to seriously as it depends on the training and knowledge of the person answering the phone and they are not employed by the embassy and are not the ones who process the applications.
• VISA was obtained on the 21st of August 2014.
• Regarding our ages I am 49 never married no kids that I know about. My fiancée is 46 never married and no kids.
• Job’s, I have a Bachelors and I work for the Government, my fiancée works in education in Belarus and has a masters.
• I don’t know what factors govern fast processing as the rumours are many and the facts are few. I am only assuming when I say this and whether the current political climate with Russia is causing delays for those whose respective fiancée are from Russia, it is ONLY an ASSUMPTION on my part.
• I am not sure whether my working for the commonwealth government makes it easier for them to investigate me I don’t know again only an ASSUMPTION.
• My fiancée also has lived in Minsk all of her life and at the same home with her family for the past 34 years again not sure if this makes a difference or not.

I would like once again to wish all of you the best and I hope your loved ones join you in our wonderful country soon.

Cheers

The first time they sent email to me, they said that they take around 7 working days to reply an email. However I sent an email to Australia Embassy in Moscow more than 2 weeks ago and they didn't reply yet. How long does it take to them reply an email? What is everyone experience about communication with them.

cheers
