Currently AHC New Delhi is processing applications lodged in February and March 2014. So can't really tell you if this will affect the applications lodged in August. If the case officer allocation time frame stays the same as what it is right now (which is very unlikely), you'll have to wait for 36-40 weeks since date of application for a case officer.
Hope this helps. Good luck!!

Becky

Thank you for your advise. I have few more queries.
1. My address in passport is different from where my parents are residing and post my marriage I am staying with my inlaws on a different address. Please confirm do I have to get the address changed on my passport or shall I let it be since my pcc will be done on the address as passport?
2. When will my status from single to married and spouse name in passport be added. I have already applied for spouse visa without any changes in the passport, will this effect my visa grant for subclass 309
3. I am unable to apply for tourist visa through my immiaccount as I have applied for spouse visa a week back. What should I do

3. I am unable to apply for tourist visa through my immiaccount as I have applied for spouse visa a week back. What should I do
1. Different PSKs follow slightly different rules. Some allow the applicant to apply for a PCC without updating their information on their passport.
However, in my case my PSK strictly advised me that I was not going to be issued a new PCC until all my details on my passport were updated i.e. my address (I was living with my parents as my in-laws are Australian) because my parents bought a new house hence the change of address and add my husband's name to my passport. I had lived in Australia for over four and half years when my parents moved to a new address so my renewed passport (from Indian High Commission, Canberra) had the old address.
That took me over 45 days to get my passport re-issued and then apply for a PCC. Once I got the re-issued passport, I went to the PSK the next day and I got my PCC within 3 hours on the same day.

So you need to check the requirements of your PSK. I unfortunately can't really advice you whether or not you'll need to get your passport re-issued.

2. AHC doesn't care if your partner's name is on your passport or not. Especially knowing how much of a pain in the rear end the passport reissue process is in India. I don't think you not having your partner's name on your passport is going to cause you any issues with the partner visa application. "Adding the spouse's name" requirement is more for the PSK as I explained in point 1.

Also I didn't change my maiden name to married name so the reissued passport has my maiden name but it has my husband's name.

3. Yes, you'll have to submit a paper application for the visitor visa because India is not in the list of the countries whose passport holders ARE eligible apply for a visitor visa online.
Below is the list of countries whose passport holders are eligible to apply for the eVisitor:-
Visitor visa online applications
Applicants from India however CAN apply for a partner visa online.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Nothing to worry about. As soon as your partner visa is approved, your visitor visa (even if it's valid for another 5 months) will be cancelled immediately because one person can hold only one substantive visa at a time.
It will not affect the processing of your partner visa as long as AHC knows that you're in India.

Online applications are taking longer than the paper applications as I mentioned in my earlier posts. The migration agent probably will be the first to know if there are any progress in the assessment of your application or if there is any requirement from your case officer for further evidence/additional documents when one gets allocated to your case.

Hope this helps. Please do ask if you have more questions. Good Luck!!

Thank you very much for your reply Becky. Your information has helped me a lot. I tried calling AHC, New Delhi - +911141221000 to find out the status of my application and whether CO allocated or not? But everytime I am getting a reply 'Visa office is closed and working hours from 8:30 to 1 pm ; 2 pm to 5 pm'. I am getting this reply once I am redirected to the 'information regarding already lodged application'. I cannot contact VFS since my application is made online. Is there any way I can get the information of CO allocation through phone ?

No worries Archu, happy to help
When you are calling the above number, make sure you press 1 and 2 immediately without listening to any of the automated babbling. That will put you in a queue which after a bit of a wait will get you through to an operator who will be able to answer your questions
No point contacting VFS, they are as lost as the applicants are in regards to the processing of the applications. Just keep trying and the call will connect, trust me

The case officer allocation usually accompanies an email and/or a phone call from AHC informing the applicant that a case officer as been allocated to their application. You can also call them to find out the same.
Hope this helps. Please do ask if you have more questions.
Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hey Sunil,

Thanks for your kind words Partner visa application process is a long one and the applicants need to be calm and patient during this time.
When did your partner apply for her visa? Currently AHC New Delhi is processing applications submitted in February and March 2014.
Please do ask if you or your partner have any questions.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

I applied for pcc and have got schedule of my appointment. Meanwhile, I spoke to immigration office and they suggested that I should get my spouse name added and change my address in the passport. Is there a chance that I miss my scheduled appointment date and first get the passport updated. Or shall I take the pcc on old passport then apply for reissue of passport with updated details and thn again apply for pcc on updated passport.

I don't think getting both done right now would be wise. Because if you get the PCC issued based on the information of your old passport, the re-issued passport will have updated information on it which will not match what will be on the PCC.

So, don't bother going for the PCC appointment IF you have been advised to get the passport re-issued. First get the passport fixed up with all your updated details then when you get the re-issued passport, go to the PSK the next day and you'll get your PCC with correct and updated information that will match with the information on your passport on the same day.

That's what I did and got my PCC within a few hours.
Hope this helps. Good Luck! Please do keep us updated

Kind Regards,
Becky
