309/100 offshore partner visa
 
Hi there,
I have applied offshore partner visa with all the solid evidences on 4/02/2014 from India and got acknowledgment on 19th feb 2014. I applied onshore visa in Australia before but unfortunately they said I didn't meet the criteria of two years of de facto relationship. That's why I had to withdraw my file.My partner & I was living together in Australia for 1.7yrs. Since then I have t heard anything yet. My migration agent said looking at my file which was almost decision ready included my medical and police which was done in Australia, it would take only three months. Apparently it's going to be complete six months on 4th august. Is there anyone who applied start of this year and got the visa approved. Please suggest how long it can take upto!! Your help would be much appreciated.i am really frustrated now coz when I. Was going to apply everyone said it would only take three months or so, and I agreed to it. Missing my partner now and this immi doesn't care about the sentiments. Please suggest if emailing them about how I feel would of any help or just waste attempt😪

Hey KomalAujla,

Welcome to the Forum!! :):)

As per the latest update, AHC New Delhi is allocating case officers to December 2013 applications. You might have to wait another month or so to get a CO allocated to your file.

AHC New Delhi recently increased the case officer allocation time frame to 30-31 weeks since date of application. Below is the link from their website that has detailed information on processing time frames:-
CURRENT AVERAGE PROCESSING TIMES - Australian High Commission

The increase in time frame is most probably because of the increase in the volume of applications lodged and the lack of officers to process them.
Kindly post on the thread made for applicants from India, below is the link:-

Feel free to ask if you have more questions.
Hope this helps. Good Luck! Please keep us updated. Thanks for your time.

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hey KomalAujla,

No worries KomalAujla. Happy to help.
I unfortunately am not sure how long AHC will take to clear December 2013 and January 2014 case officer allocations.
I can keep you updated if that helps.

I have a case officer, I'm still waiting for my visa. My timeline is in my signature below. It has all my details.

Good Luck! And please keep us updated. Thanks for your time.

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hey waitng,

Welcome to the Forum!! :):)
AHC New Delhi is taking 30-31 weeks since date of application to allocate case officer to an application that is roughly 217 days maximum.
Below is the link from AHC New Delhi website which has the current processing time frames of the services they provide:-
CURRENT AVERAGE PROCESSING TIMES - Australian High Commission

As for acknowledgement letter, AHC New Delhi doesn't send it to every applicant. You can call them and check for your peace.

Sorry for being the bearer of bad new but you have a long wait ahead of you. I'd suggest you take up a hobby or something cause this process can drive a person insane especially the lack of communication from AHC's end is the cause of more stress and depression. Current indicative processing time frame as per AHC New Delhi is 8-11 months. The global standard processing time frame as per DIBP is 12 months.

Keep yourself busy and you won't even feel this waiting time.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky
