Good luck I hope you can find the solution to your problem.
Thanks! The long story shortly is that once i was refused entry to Australia I didn't pay return air ticket. I contacted DIBP already and no debt. Might u have an idea which institution I have to ask??

Thank u

Hi Lisa
I think to be safe you should get this information from DIBP in writing.

If DIBP only told you on the phone you have no debt, write an email to them providing specific details about your identity and your inquiry about your possible debt due to being returned. I am pretty confident you will get a reply even if you don't receive it straight away. Hopefully they'll confirm that you have no debt!

You can write to this address: https://www.border.gov.au/about/corp...ut-our-service

Otherwise just tick 'no' debt and hope for the best. Honestly I'm just speculating either way

Good luck

Some weeks ago I emailed DIBP( [email protected]) provided all my details and reference no and got an emai there is no debt.

Just want to be sure if I contacted right institution OR is another body which administratives debts ( unpaid return air tickets)

Thank u!!!!!

Considering that I think you should be safe to say you do not have a debt especially since you have tried to establish otherwise. Good luck with your application let us know if anything progresses.

Hello friends,

Even though I seem to be the only active poster in this thread I thought I'd keep the Egypt post flame alive and let everyone know tonight we received our 3 month tourist visa! Even though we applied for 6 months we are beyond thrilled to have it approved (with a history of one refusal/one approval - high risk country).

It also doesn't have no further stay condition applied...so there's an opportunity to extend

I will continue to update with my PMV progress (none so far ) as it was really helpful for me to read over the old posts and timelines to share experiences. If anyone else is applying to Egypt office would love to share this journey with you! Please reply or message me privately. Good luck.

Hi al_ghazal

It's unfortunate that there does not seem to be others in the waiting queue with you at the moment. We found this forum so helpful and supportive before and after our successful application.
We are now ready to submit the final stage for the PR 100 visa and I still come to this site for help and advice.
I wish you good luck in your application and hope it is through in record time!

Hi al_ghazal :-)
I'm new here, and will be joining you in keeping this thread active! I have just applied for a 309 visa online, but processing will be in Cairo.
In a few weeks, we are planning on applying for a 3-month visitor visa so I can go see my husband in Australia. I was so worried about the visa. You have no idea how relieved I felt when I read your post about getting your visitor visa granted. It gave me so much hope!

I see you are from Yemen. Just prepared that the 309 may take ages due to security checks. I am unsure if it differs for female and male applicants but we had a male applicant a few years ago that took 18 months to get the visa. I would assume males take longer for security checks but who knows.

I really just wanted to prepare you.

Hi Butterfly Cairo and everyone

I am glad my experience gave you hope. Have you submitted your tourist visa application yet? I hope you can receive it quickly! How is everything going, did you apply online?

Does anyone know if Cairo updates the status in the immiaccount to show 'assessment in progress'' generally? My tourist visa one never changed from received to finalised.... but it's a quick one to assess once they get around to looking at it I pressume.

It's frustrating to see my PMV300 still just sitting there.... It's been 3 months now, I wish I could have some indication of any progress. We have not submitted our medical so I know if they were really looking at it they might ask for that document. Everything else is there, translated and ready to go though.

I have actually emailed them to advise when my fiance is travelling to Australia on the tourist visa... but I didn't get a response. I also asked whether I was meant to update the address, even though it's only a temporary visit. No response...don't know whether to follow up.

Application Status on Immi

Hi al_ghazal

No we haven't submitted our visitor visa yet. We decided we will wait for a couple of months until we settle a few things before applying. Btw have you applied under the tourist stream or the family sponsored stream?

Everything is going well so far alhamdulillah. We lodged online from Cairo on the 2nd of Feb 2017. Medicals had already been done last month using 'My Health Declarations' and had already been cleared by DIBP. Biometrics and originals of Police certificates were provided on the 7th of Feb. Now we are bracing ourselves for the wait ahead
How about you, has your fiance already provided his biodata and original PCC's?

Regarding the status update, I do not know about visitor visa's. But for my Partner visa, as soon as I lodged, it changed quickly to "Information Requested". Then once we uploaded all our supporting documents (we have lodged a complete application according to the Cairo checklist), it changed immediately from "Information Requested" to "Assessment in Progress".
