I don't know of anyone who would lie on a stat dec.
Nor do I but there must have been examples of people fabricating or stretching the truth. Perhaps they see the relationship in a different light but they have been cancelled and I am sure the Stat Dec or 888 stories don't add up.

Well said AngeliquePrince.

Each of us have different circumstances, so it's unfair to judge others reaction based on their own experience. The base line is whoever have been waiting for similar time like me (11 months) , they were being told officially the average waiting time was 6-8 months at the time they lodged their 801. I personally think they have every right to be emotional or frustrated due to the fact that the waiting time is significantly longer than what they have been told, I heard some of them even never getting any communication over one year wait.

Furthermore, philipg and I have been asked for further information and we have provided immi longer than a months ago (almost 3 months for philipg), yet no communication at all. Whatever the reasons / excuses couldn't explain the huge delay after they have been provided the extra info, as those extra info really doesn't take much time to verify (compare to the initial application). I have no problem to provide whatever more they ask for but just found it frustrated for no communication when you knew your case has been looked into already.

Just want to respond to those who tried to explain the long wait was a measure to avoid marriage fraud. If gov or immi dept think the 2 years waiting time between 820 and 801 is not long enough to avoid fraud, fix the bloody law, make it 3 or 4 years, whatever they like, as long as the applicant is well aware what the waiting time it will be when they lodge the application.

Regards,
Daniel

The fact of the matter is that many have been asked for outstanding documents, submitted them in a short time and yet they have not replied back. It is true that marriage scams are rotting the system but I believe everyone believes that at some point they do not follow the timeline that they were saying based on the lodgement date. Those people of course wonder as to why this is happening. Yes we are grateful that we are in Australia with our husband and wife but you cannot deny the fact that it is causing emotional stress especially for those applying for a job and they get rejected. I hope that the new government will have a mandate to improve the system especially for the Partners visa. Everyone wants to get started with their lives. It is just we are human and we have emotions. I am pretty sure Immigration is doing their best to finalised majority of the backlogs. Let us be positive.

I agree that there should be full disclosure and transparency but this is the Government we are dealing with and it is hard to get a straight answer at the best of time, laws are written and followed however the interpretation is the issue.
My migration agent just sent through the advice letter for our 801 and it states on the bottom 12 - 15 months.

I can assure everyone that having a family with child and being in limbo is dam awful but what are we to do other than wait, pray and live life to the fullest regardless of the obstacles.

The attack on the Australian Government, rather to single it out as being totally incompetent was my first and only negative reaction.

I can assure you my dealings in South East Asia have been nothing short of an emotional, financial and physical stress. A bureaucratic nightmare.

At least here there is hope

Best Wishes To All Of You!

All government departments are the same. I have been waiting over 2 months for my income tax return to be processed.....

The non-communication from government departments is something you will need to get use to if you want to live in Australia.

I've been in conversation with a source close to the department. Longer processing times have also come about due to domestic violence cases in relationships.

Does the applicant hold a 820 or still on a BVA? If BVA then it is the security checks they are waiting on and even DIBP can't tell you when they will be back.

Pakistan is one of the few countries where security checks can take forever. UUnfortunately all you can do is wait.

We had one from Syria take 20ish months to process, one from Yemen take 18 months to process. There is one from Lebanon still processing after 2 years.

Oh My Word!
I see. Well my partner called embassy recently and they told her that everything is complete (your file) and has been sent forward (to where???) and that you will be notified as soon as a decision is made. On that same day i received the response of departmental checks and clearances that are being waited for.


Don't really know what to make out of that!
But yeah playing their waiting game

You mention embassy does that mean that she applied offshore?

With all government departments you can get a different answer each time you call.
