Subclass 300 visa for fijian applicant

Hi,

Has been just over a month now my Fijian fiance lodged his visa application at the Australian high commission Suva.

We have not heard anything. Not surprising since Fiji is considered a high risk country, but surely a case officer should have been assigned by now. The letter he received from the high commission said the process could take up to ten months.

Has anyone had any experience with the high commission in Suva? We don't want to contact them just yet, but as everybody else we are anxious.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks

Some people may wait several months and longer re advice, whether it be a CO appointed or otherwise.
Ten months or thereabouts may be a nominal global assessment for the moment based on numbers of applications and annual government budget and yet there have also been posts re shorter times based on applications of last year.
If everybody keeps seeking info on processing, that will if anything just slow progress for it takes time of people to process responses to enquiries.

Progressive news.
My fiance telephoned the High Commission in Suva last week. Has been advised a CO has been appointed though he did not talk to them and it seems medicals and police clearance have come back from Australia fine.
Well we can only go by what they say and wait now.
It was definitely a positive call. We are hoping quicker than 10months processing, we are now having to postpone our wedding till later 'just in case'

Great news, visa granted!! Just over four months.

Funnily enough he had called Australian High commission in Suva - still no progress. They advised him to send an email requesting 'Expedite' process (something like that, basically to speed it up). Same day he emailed to say he had not been contacted by Case Manager and wanted to know progress on our visa.

Surprise - next day he received an email saying we are reviewing your application and require Single Status Certificate from yourself and Sponsor. His cost $5 in Fiji and mine was $78, go figure!!

We had these in within 7 days even though had 28 days. And we were both so surprised, couple of days later he got the call to say it is approved..

Jan 27th 2011 - 3 June 2011..

He is coming home in August and we are getting married in December. It is such a relief. That is it from me on this forum. I wish you all the best. They say not to contact where you have lodged visa, but if we hadn't done it, I can guarantee we wouldn't have been planning our wedding right now. Be firm but not forceful as it is such an emotional process not just on yourselves but your family too.

Good luck everyone :-)
