confused! please help..

The situation is..

My husband is currently with me in Sydney on a Tourist Visa..

The status of his application at the moment is all documents have been lodged in. The last document was an Fbi clearance which finally arrived.

I emailed the case officer, to ask what happens next.

Her reply confused me, she said that for the application to be placed in queue for finalisation my husband has to go back overseas for finalisation.

I think I read somewhere in one of the threads here, that the applicant can stay in Australia until decision has been made and then they have to depart australia to get the visa..

I think I've confused anyone reading this..

Please explain!

thank you..

that sounds unusual that he has to be out of Australia for it even to be on the queue for processing. I think it's best that you contact the CO again and ask her to clarify. Even if you husband did return home, how would she even know? Especially if you hadn't advised her.

I have an Irish friend who had their PR issued when it was approved and she was in Argentina. So I don't think it's necessary that your husband returns to his home country, it can be as close as Asia or NZ.

Unless by 'finalisation' the CO just means the issuing of the visa??

The normal situation is that visas can be processed but an offshore visa cannot be granted when someone is onshore and that is the finalisation that has been referred to.
Your husband only needs to go to the closest destination outside of Australia and that from Sydney is New Zealand.
As desde has indicated, you should be able to have the CO clarify that and yes, there have been some people decide on making trips to Australia or have been here while offshore visas are being processed.
