Me and Partner (sponsor) are living in India and have been married since 2012.

Now the problem is that My husband's Permanent Residency Visa expired last Dec, n his Resident Return Visa got denied. We are absolutely clueless whether I will still get my PR by Sept,2017

This is a complex situation and don't think many on this forum will know the answers to your questions. Best as mentioned by Mish and Maggie-May24 is to talk to a good MARA agent.

Good start would be to post in Ask Mark thread.

As mentioned before, sponsor is someone who is an Australia permanent resident or an Australian citizen. With your husband's original PR expiring and RRV being rejected, that from my understanding would leave your partner visa in limbo as your husband isn't an eligible sponsor in the current circumstances.

Good Luck hope you find some information.

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hi,

Congrats!!

One quick question. I am preparing to apply for 309/100 from India and my partner is currently residing with me here. Can she continue to stay while the decision is made - I know it will take few months.

Thanks,
Andy

Hi all,

I have been a silent observer of this thread over the past year whilst I was awaiting my wife's visa (subclass 309).

Despite not asking any questions, this thread has been a reference point for me on numerous occasions and I've read each and every post.

Thanks to all for for sharing their experiences. I wish all the best to everyone awaiting an outcome.

The visa application timeline is shared, which should assist the nervous souls eagerly anticipating a grant notice.

Congratulations!
Was your wife in India throughout the process of Partner visa or did she visit Australia?
The reason I am asking is I have heard if the applicat is in their home country visa is granted earlier.

Hi all,

My wife received an email requesting a PCC from the regional passport office yesterday. She already has one from the police commissioner, now we have her ticket booked for this Friday, 19th Feb... but the next available appointment is not till the 29th Feb.

If she applys for this through VFS, is it the same thing? On their website it says it should be done within 7 working days unless it needs to go to India - which is up to 8 weeks.

In what circumstances will it need to go there? We have a 309 visa in the pipeline and that would be a major delay!

Thanks

Hey shank89,

Your wife will need the PCC from the regional office her passport was issued from. I had to do the same. AHC will not accept any other PCC.
You cannot apply for a PCC from VFS, they are the office that collects visa applications, all they can do is certify copies of your government issued documents.

Not sure if she can apply from VFS in Australia as she might need to provide proof of address which she might not have as I'm guessing she is in Australia on a visitor visa. No harm in contacting them for an inquiry.
The regional passport office also needs about 3 documents proving her address. Not sure, but quite a few people were able to get the PCC issued on the same day they go into the RPO. Also depends on how busy they are, I got mine issued in 3 hours.

Chances are it might need to go to India cause her passport would have been issued there. If the passport was issued by the Indian High Commission in Canberra, then the PCC would've been issued in 7 days.

If the PCC was to take longer than 28 days, you can contact the case officer and let them know of the circumstances and that you aren't going to be able to supply the document in the above mentioned time frame.

I had to do that as I had to get my husband's name and address updated; without it my RPO won't give me a PCC. So that took a lot longer than 28 days for me.
Case officers are understanding that government offices are slack as and things can take longer than they need to.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hi Becky!

Thanks for the response, i did call up VFS and there are plenty of other places online that seem to think you can apply for a PCC through VFS Australia. Including their own website, did you mean she cannot do it at VFS in India itself?

She is planning on going to the passport office today with her current police check and passport to see if they can squeeze her in. Our understanding is, since she already has a current clearance the procedure should be fairly straightforward.

No problem

I hope she gets the PCC, do keep in mind they might not give her one. As I mentioned before, PCC is meant to be issued by the passport issuing authority; could either be the RPO or Indian High Commission in Canberra whoever it was who gave her the passport she currently holds.

Please do keep us updated on how things go.
Good Luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Bugger! Hopefully she gets it when she goes in today.

If not, will have to hope the VFS service gets it, they did seem confident of it over the phone though.
