Your application for the Temporary Partner visa will be allocated to a case officer

Hello every one,

I applied for a Temporary Partner visa in April 2013.

I received an email from DIAC / DIPB on Friday 15 Nov, saying "Your application for the Temporary Partner visa will be allocated to a case officer and undergo further assessment within the coming months". And this email was giving me some details to complete documents such as Police Clearance, Medical test and for 80. I lodge my application with these documents.

In addition, my application is now processed in Perth, although I lodged it in Sydney.

Anyone has an idea of what this automatic email is? Does it mean I'm going to have a case officer soon?

Your help would be much appreciated.

Do you mean you've lodged your application incl files of police clearance, medical exam result..... And now they ask you to provide these documents again?!

It is quite confusing. This is what the email says.

You have two options for submitting your application to the Australian Federal Police:

No, that's just boilerplate language they send to everyone, Princess.

They send it out about halfway through the usual wait time. It probably does mean you'll be assigned a CO soon, Flo, but it doesn't mean you're about to be granted or anything, generally.

However, if your application does take longer than a year, they *can* ask for you to do medicals and police checks again. They don't always, but it happens. That's why some people choose not to front-load those things with an average 820 waiting time of 13+ months now.

Ok, I think it's just an auto-generated email to pending applications...

Thanks, CG, that's what I'm thinking now.
A confusion for me: I got my acknowledgement letter with a case officer name at the end, does that's mean this is my assigned case officer? Thank you

Maybe, maybe not. Unfortunately there are very few definite answers in this process...

I think I got too excited for nothing. Any idea whether the transfer of application to the Perth office is a good sign?

I take all the fun out of everything. I'm sorry It doesn't mean anything - they frequently transfer cases between offices in order to offset heavier workloads.

Hi there FloOz

We momentarily got our hopes up over the same email...

Look closely at your letter though - it actually says "your case has been assigned to the Temporary Partner Processing Centre in NSW"... but then it goes on to give contact details for WA.

My guess (and that of Mark Northam) is that this is a typo.... and quite frankly, it makes me fairly angry. So, I guess every person who got this letter will now needs to call immigration and confirm which office we need to send our details to... or we risk sending information to the wrong office. Pretty big error if you ask me..... but of course DIBP would hardly be forgiving is we made such mistakes in our applications!!

Hang in there....
