What probably happens is that someone in registering yoir application will quickly go through and perhaps have their own check off list of what kind of supporting info has been supplied but because they do not want a whole heap of stuff hanging about, they have returned it to you.
It may not always happen but it has at times and is just to the discretion of where the application has been made and people looking at the application.

It has been just over 2 months since I applied for my visa. I know it has not been to long but what I am concern about is I will have to pay for my enrolment fees soon.

As I am on a student visa, I have to pay for the enrolment fees by the end of next month. It is a lot of money - $5,250 for the semestre. I was hoping to be granted the partner visa before I had to pay for my studies.

I am wondering if I could write a polite and formal letter to my CO begging her to have my visa granted before the payment deadline for TAFE. If I don`t pay the fees, TAFE will contact the immigration then I would be in troble. I would not like to study full time one more semester. I have good jobs opportunities to work full time but I need to be granted the visa.

Is it worth writing a letter explaining what I have just mentioned above?

I appreciate your comments.

Thanks and regards

when we lodged our app, the guy at immi said it was not necessary for recently married couples to be living together straight away, as long as there was intent. he told us they didnt expect it. as long as you are genuine and doing as the app says, you should have little to worry about.

Hi Ed

We are in the same situation with the student visa. These are the options we have been given.

1. Request a deferment at the school to see if my husband can postpone the start of his course for a few months. You remain on your student visa with the same work rights but do not attend classes for the period of deferment. This is at the discretion of the school and they normally require compassionate or compelling reasons.

2. Cancel student visa and apply for bridging visa e. No work or travel rights. You can request work rights if you can prove financial hardship.

I don't think they would fast track your visa application because you have good job opportunities. It's worth a try though. There are many people in the same situation so unfortunately it's a matter of waiting.
