Hello, everyone! Sorry to necropost. I just have a few questions since I just recently applied for a visa to Aus for my wife, however, I believe the guy who is our case office might be this "Emre" that MelisUur mentioned about. He is a guy with glasses with a very rude and condescending attitude.

What is so strange and worrying is that he (our case officer) didn't even give us his name!! I have sent him 2 emails and haven't had any reply in 3 weeks!!

When my wife called him and asked for his name and details, he just replied: "Just send us an email". avoiding the question altogether ...

It's just funny since when we first went to the embassy 6 months ago {before we applied for the visa, we were just asking for details}, there was a blonde Australian women working there who talked to us and she was so helpful and kind.

But this guy, if his name is "Emre" is so unhelpful and rude ...

I hope someone here can shed some light on who he is and also the name of the nice blonde woman.

Thanks.

Thanks so much! Wow ... I can't believe it is him, but it makes complete sense now why he is avoiding every chance to give his name when so many people have complained about him. He must think we want to write and complaint about him, which I have thought about for a while now.

Do you happen to know his last name by chance?

Thanks again.

I just looked through my old emails and I couldn't find anything about his name I actually didn't know his name actually know that I think about it, I recall him giving my husband a false name and we called the embassy asking for him (sorry forgot the name he gave us) and they said nobody here has that name bla bla..I was totally confused I didn't know who our C.O was lol!
Then it ended up being him and I blamed my husband for not listing to him properly on the phone I guess I was wrong..His shifty by the sound of it..

That is so weird ... Who did you contact to complain about him? I was thinking of getting in contact with the ambassador but I couldn't find any contact numbers or email, just that his name is Ian Biggs ...

I have no confidence in this Emre, especially if he is giving other people fake names. It's just my luck that we have him as a case officer.

Don't worry he was mine too..
In the final stage a nice lady will take over she is either the supervisor or manager or something..
I never ended up making a complaint I've been way to busy..
I'm sure if you search on Immgration aus website you will find something

I hope so. My wife and I have been so stressed lately. Thanks so much for the help. I feel a little more relaxed as I hope the nicer lady will take over. Maybe she is that blonde woman after all?

My wife is going to call today for another appointment. I don't think it's worth writing a compliant yet, but I would like some answers from them about this Emre guy.

Thanks for the quick replies too.

We applied last month, 10th of December. We thought we had all the documents we needed, but he created a whole new list that was nothing to do with the 309-100 Checklist. He wanted more photos of the wedding and engagement (We showed 50 photos, but since then I have printed more and have about 130 altogether).

He also asked for us to fill out form 80 character assessment, X-ray and police checks.

He also wanted more emails and phone bills etc. I found that strange since we already gave him more than enough of those.

All those are fine and we have done them, however since my wife (she is Turkish of course) has worked in Croatia for more than a year she needs a police check from there too, but that has been so difficult and everyone keeps sending us in circles. We told Emre that since my wife is Turkish and not a Croatian citizen, they can't give that form, but he wouldn't hear of any excuse. I'm a little worried as he gave a time limit to submit the rest of these documents. 49 days he wrote, so I guess the deadline is 28th of this month. I wonder if they give extensions as it has been Christmas and new year holidays?

Also, while in the interview with him, he was writing something down on a notepad while covering his hand over it for us not to see. Is that normal? I feel as if he is very suspicious of our marriage and being together as a couple.

One more thing, he rarely talked to me during the interview and was constantly talking in Turkish with my wife.

I will certainly let you know what happens with our visa.

Cheers.
