Can you share the reason with us if you feel like it?

Maybe we can help you with advice. Please don't give up, as love always finds a way to be together.

Im sorry to hear your news, unfortunately anything that comes out of CAIRO is negative. The amount of people in our boat is incredible - its like the decision makers in CAIRO like to play GOD. In my case at the moment MRT is a further 15 months away for tribunal, then a further seems 10 plus months for the form 80 to be processed. This whole process is inhumane to say the least with little regard for ppls feelings, and the ridiculous excuses for refusal. NOT BIG WEDDING. NOT MANY AT WEDDING. ETC ETC. what law is there to state the amount of ppl has to attend ur wedding or engagement etc. Complaining to authorities does not help. If you apply via embassy in thailand - u get visa in 4 months. CAIRO years. We all should join forces and take this issue and go public. Annie123

have to agree Annie with my own situation my diabetis has gone way out of control with readings in the 20's do they care."They dont seem to care"we seem to be another number or another $$$$. the stress level on both sides is high.I have to wonder what the plan is in making people wait long delays.Are they hoping people will just give up.are we supposed to have no feelings.we shouldnt be treated this way because "we chose to do things differently'What is this issue with the WEDDING anyway,are they saying it is important to have a celebration in our spouses country but not care about our own families feelings in australia
Dont we as Australians have the right for freedom of choice where we marry and how we marry
when did we lose that did someone forget to tell me.what happened to dont forget australian values and equal opportunity
Far too many people are getting hurt and emotionally abused.

Sorry to hear this, I totally understand how you are feeling. I too have to agree with Annie and Trishher, I too am in the same situation with my husband. I too thought it was my choice to marry where I wanted and with a person I simply love, trust and adore. I feel like we have done something wrong by falling in love and we are being punished.
My refusal was the marriage was not celebrated large enough, age difference, religion, financial and cultural differences. My husband and I already had a marriage celebrant booked to say marriage vows on our first wedding anniversary being later this year, but I have had to postpone this arrangement until he comes. I thought I lived in a multicultural and diverse society where everyone is treated equally and not discriminated against because of age, religion, race, financial status and culture. I feel very betrayed by my country. Changes to this process need to be done as it puts everyone’s life on hold, puts your life financially and emotionally in turmoil and can start to effect one’s health and social wellbeing.

The process should be fair. There should be a uniform standard in place when assessing applications from overseas missions. Countless people get their partner visas with just a civil ceremony wedding. I know of successful cases where the husband is about 30 years older !, and where does the religion come in?

Mondy, your wife paid most of the application fees. So what?? Does that indicate a fraud going on? What nonsense reasons.... and the divorce was legal. How can a stranger judge you after an hour or two's tense interview?

All of you guys and gals that are dealing with Cairo, and others that have had absurd reasons given for a refusal, need to put in a class action against them.

At the very least, get an immigration lawyer to write a letter on all your behalves, stating each case briefly and send it off to the Global Feedback.

There is no way that the decision maker in Cairo can be 100% certain that each of your cases was fraudulent. If there is some doubt, then the humane thing to do would be to grant the visa, because after all, it is a two year provisional visa. It is designed to give the couple two years to prove that their relationship is genuine and continuing. The final and more accurate assessment comes then, when all doubts will be clear.

Feel for you all.....it's the worst kind of disruption to life, and to be made to feel like a criminal for being in a genuine loving relationship, is definitely inhuman and opposed to Australian Values.

Hi again. I for one have complained to the Global, but as they told me they cannot help. But they told me they would send my complaint to Cairo that day. I totally agree with you re THE 2 YEAR PROVISIONAL VISA. Imm has time on their side by holding us to prove our relationship is true, genuine and continuing. We have even applied for a tourist visa and this also was denied. CAIRO seems to be a law unto themselves and I and many others have done all the legal paperwork required and as far as my relationship is concerned we proved and showed it is genuine. I think a 10 year relationship for a start says something, plus the fact I have travelled to Morocco many times since 2005,and living in Morocco for 18 plus months with my partner and his family. At the moment I do not know how they define genuine. Perhaps im missing something, but they do not elaborate. The time frame for refusal in our case after our interviews, was 10 months, now we have a further 15 months according to MRT to be allocated a date for a hearing, then based on others in the same boat, if it is remitted back to CAIRO, it seems a further 9 plus months to be granted a visa, or should I say HOPING to hear if CAIRO will at last grant our visa. Even after this time some are STILL WAITING. If this was not so serious and damaging to our lives I would think im living and participating in a comedy show. I asked a question at my interview "is there a quota system here" reply was 'YES" . Anyway to all in this nightmare, emotionally, and financially draining experience THIS BOAT IS FULL AND IS SINKING.

Annie, have you contacted your local MP in Australia? That has helped in some cases. I still think that if all of you put in a group complaint to the right authority, the system will be overhauled. There needs to be parity with other DIOC's around the world.
