Hello Everyone,

I am new to this forum and & I have a couple of questions as my wife will be applying for the subclass 309/100 visa by end of this month from Sri Lanka and any help would be highly appreciated.

1) As I am her sponsor, can someone tell me who should fill the Form 888? Does it have to be a person living in Australia and also a person who attended the wedding ceremony? Or can it only be a person known to me living in Australia.

2) What is the average time frame for this visa to be granted? I know it takes up to 12 months but are there any Sri Lankans who have got it well before that time line?

Any help would be highly appreciated as we are new to applying for this visa and we would take any advice for a quicker grant.

Kind Regards,

1) I believe Form 888 should be filled out by a person who is currently living in Australia and is an Australian citizen or permanent resident. They should be people who know you and can say that your relationship is genuine. When we lodged ours, we got 4 people to fill Form 888 and we also got 2 of his friends (in Sri Lanka) to write letters stating that our relationship is genuine because we spent a lot of time with them in Sri Lanka and while they were not eligible to fill Form 888, we asked them to vouch for us because we spent a lot of time with them as a couple.

2) My husband's visa was granted in 6 months. I saw that some people on this forum had to wait unto 11 months but many received their grants within 6-8 months.

Feel free to message me whenever. We tried to go through a lawyer who would have charged $3000 and still couldn't guarantee a grant. We ended up doing it all on our own and now my husband will be here next week. Happy to help a couple in need. Good luck!

Hi mandy0228

My wife applied for her visa at the end of Nov 2015 and she was asked for her medical in Feb 2016. According to few recent cases, it could take around 2 months for the visa grant.

Also, please subscribe and enter your details to http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...-lanka-54.html

No updates since the medical was submitted.

Some people have gone through a phone interview but that's only some of the applicants.

If all the documents have been submitted, then it's a matter of waiting.
