[QUOTE=Becky26;542058][SIZE="4"][COLOR="DarkRed"]Hey Everyone!

Hope everyone is doing well.

Thought its about time to start a thread for applicants of partner (309/100) visa from India. There have been quite a new members from India who have been looking for answers to the very frequently asked questions.

Following is application processing/procedure 101:-
1:- Once VFS delivers the applications to the AHC New Delhi, AHC takes a couple of days to put the applications in some sort of sequence. Then they start sending Acknowledgement Letters of the applications to the applicants.

2. When medicals are requested, book an appointment with your nearest Panel Doctor (usually they will be able to book you in 2 days from the day you call). Below is the link from DIBP website which has a list of Panel Doctors in India:-
India

The 'Medical Request' letter sent by AHC will have your HAP ID which is linked to your passport.
The applicant must log-on to the 'eMedical' portal to generate their "REFERRAL LETTER". The link to the eMedical portal:-
https://www.emedical.immi.gov.au/eMedUI/eMedicalClient
You need to fill out the details requested by the page and click on "LOGON"
The system will generate you the above mentioned referral letter. This is important as it facilitates in tracking the processing of the medical reports online.
Below are the documents you need to carry with you on the day of appointment (also check the document requirement from the medical center you will be visiting):-
1. Original valid passport (and a photo copy);
2. AHC's Medical Request Letter;
3. eMedical Referral Letter;
4. 4 latest passport size photos;
5. Form 26 and Form 160 is provided by the medical center. (you can fill it out in advance and carry it with you, if you prefer);
6. Medical Examination Fees (varies from center to center)

Cases with no complications get submitted to the DIBP within 5-10 working days, the applicant can logon to the eMedical portal and this time the system will generate a PDF titled "INFORMATION SHEET" which will have the date on which the applicant's reports were submitted to the DIBP. The PDF will read as follows:-
"Health Case Status
This health case was submitted to DIBP on DD MONTH YYYY."


3. The best time to apply for a visitor visa to Australia is right after you submit your partner visa application. As per the AHC New Delhi website, the current processing time frame for visitor visa is 15-20 working days and 1 month as per DIBP global service standard.

4. If you plan to stay offshore, better get a hobby or find something to do that will keep you occupied for at least 9 months since date of application or you will lose your mind waiting for the visa.
As per current update, AHC New Delhi is taking 35-36 weeks since date of application to allocate case officers to the applications. Below is the link with the processing time frames:-
CURRENT AVERAGE PROCESSING TIMES - Australian High Commission
AHC has started allocating case officers to January 2014 applications.

As online partner applications were opened to the offshore applicants on December 9, 2013 the whole process is a ginormous MYSTERY
*** Offshore online applicants please share your experiences with us. Thanks!

- The case officer allocation time frame when I applied in July 2013 was 10-12 weeks since application. I got my case officer at 27 weeks since application. RIDICULOUS!! increase in processing time frames.

5. You should be hearing from AHC either you are nearing the 35-36 weeks since date of application (250 days at least) period or have completed it.
Now a days the case officers call almost all the applicants to either introduce themselves to the applicants, for a brief phone interview and/or request additional documents so GLUE YOUR PHONES TO YOU BUTTS!!
They can also contact the applicants via email, depends on the case officer, what they prefer. Sometimes the case officers call the applicants and request the applicant additional documents but forget to provide their email address. The format for the case officer's email for AHC New Delhi is as follows:
[email protected]
***We should cut them some slack as there are 20 case officer working in AHC New Delhi right now.
FOR VISITOR VISA HOLDERS:- This is the time when you PACK YOUR BAGS AND RUN!!!! Leave Australia ASAP!! Many applications (with no complications) get sent to the final queue on the same day the case officer is allocated.
Sometimes AHC will wait for the applicant to get offshore to send the file to the final queue.

6. If you are requested to submit additional documents, it could be either via email, courier/post or sometimes both, again depends on your case officer.
Many applicants ask how to

hello everyone

I have a much complex situation. Application for partner visa 309 was lodged in first week of July 2015 and till now there is no confirmation about appointment of CO, no telephonic conversation.

My wife visited India on our first anniversary and additional documents of her visit were also supplied to DIBP.

I am not sure if it's normal or when I could expect any further information. Things are complex and frustrated at my end. Kindly advice me your best.

best regards
