Rubbish!

The same number or very slightly more Partner Visa applications have been approved each year since the fee was doubled, yet the processing times have continued to grow.

There is a planning level each year for Partner Visas that will be issued by the government, this is around 120,000 per year.

Very simply put processing times have and are increasing because more than 120,000 applications for Partner Visas have been received each year. The fee increase was also hoped to reduce the number of applications but that seems not to have worked.

it was also mentioned in the vac release of the first increase (basically) was due to them being unable to pass three budget.

Sorry I mixed up skilled visa numbers with Family Stream (Partner Visas).

The Migration Programme is designed to achieve a range of economic and social outcomes. The programme is set annually, with the total places available capped at 190,000 for 2017-18, unchanged from 2016-17. The total programme is broken down into the following streams:
• Skilled – designed to improve the productive capacity of the economy and fill skill shortages in the labour market, including those in regional Australia. This represents the majority of places offered (128,550 places in 2017-18).
• Family – is predominately made up of Partner visas, enabling Australians to reunite with family members from overseas, and provide them with pathways to citizenship (57,400 places in 2017-18).

Here is the planning level from a few years back -
The total permanent migration programme outcome for 2015–16 was 189,770 places within the planning level of 190,000.
The major source countries in the migration programme were India (21.2 per cent), China (15.3 per cent) and the United Kingdom (10.0 per cent).
Within the managed migration programme the breakdown was:
• 128,550 places were delivered in the Skill stream;
• 57,400 places were delivered in the Family stream; and
• 308 places were delivered in the Special Eligibility stream.

2- Non-migrating members of the family unit
Not sure about this , is this question asking for my wife's siblings/parents?

3- Is this applicant related to the sponsor by blood, marriage or adoption?
Not sure , Yes/No? , we are related to each other by this new marriage , not sure if the qs asks if we were related bcoz of someone else's marriage?

TIA

1 - Who is the sponsor? You or your spouse?

2 - I don't think it's asking for your wife's siblings and parents. For ours, our family unit consists of myself, my fiancee (sponsor) and my two children (from a previous relationship). However, the children are not migrating with us at this time, so they are non-migrating members of our family unit.

3 - From what I gather (and read) It's asking if you're related.

By blood - Are you siblings, or first cousins?

By marriage - Are you related to your wife by marriage, i.e did your uncle marry a woman who already had a child who is related to you by marriage.

By adoption - Is your wife apart of your family by adoption and are you marrying?

hi mate , thanks for the reply

1 and 2 - I am the Sponsor (AUS PR about to become a citizen soon) , newly married couple with no kids , so I assume family unit is only ME+WIFE? so we dont have any Migrating or Non-Migrating Family members?


3 - Thanks for this answer , I have come to know thru different forums that this question specifically asks if ME+WIFE were related to each other thru Blood/Marriage/Adoption (marriage = someones else's marriage)

Thanks

Happy that I finally got a case worker and finger crossed the end is nearer than I thought!

I got requested to supply my Australian Police check.. easy enough!

What I am really stumped by was to supply further information for the financial aspect of my relationship for Dec 16-Dec 17 (specifically Jan-Apr 2017) and (Aug-Sep 17)

I have uploaded all my joint accounts! and we uploaded both of our individual accounts for the whole year which on both I detailed and highlighted where are joint expenses were and what we paid as a couple

Where I think they might be seeing a problem is we have no joint assets and no joint bills (we lived at my parents, where we had a informal agreement of rent to be paid as a couple each week) Also we didn't have a joint account from Jan-Apr 17 as we went from Australia to UK and was setting ourselves up and just used our single accounts for the moment until I had a job again and we could use a joint account more easily again.

Im wondering if asking my parents to do a stat dec might help?

Also maybe doing another joint statement detailing why we have a gap in our joint account finances?

Anyone that has been in this situation and anyone with advice in what else I can upload/ do to help satisfy this request.

I am freaking out that my whole visa could be denied based on a couple months in which we didn't have a joint account! I had made such a strong and detailed application in my opinion otherwise.

How did you get on with responding to this?
Seems like a similar strategy the tax office uses to conduct an audit... Rather than review all financial history the investigation looks at a sample.

Did you get any useful advice from the forum?

Hey senior members I have applied for 309/100 on 5th Dec 2017 offsore im from india wife is in Australia and yesterday got Docs requested by DIBP.

Form 80 updated, medical, pcc for applicant n sponsor. Is it normal time from Delhi AHC ? Also an email mentioned case officer n position number. Its complex case as i have a bad Aussie history previously claimed refugee 6 years ago. Residing in india since 5 years. Been rejected visitor visa twice in last 6 months as i have twin babies in Australia born 3 months ago. Did not get visitor visa cos of previous history.

Now my wife is coming over to india with my twin babies to stay with me till my partner visa gets granted.
How long it takes to get visa granted after docs requested by DIBP ? I knew it will take time to open file cos of previous history but surprisingly got email yesterday. Any applicant have similar situations ?
