Hi Aus,

we are married well over the 3 years requirement, and yeah you are correct, that's why we were able to get the 100 visa

best,
Thanks a lot for confirming that, mate ! Wish you both a bright future together...

Hi Kalloggs40,

It seems they are pretty quick in Berlin provided everything is correctly & cleanly submitted. And as mentioned, frontloading makes it quicker.

At the same time, it's risky. We were hoping it will get processed before the 12 months are over otherwise we would have had to start over with Police checks, translations and that health test.

I hope you have just as much luck, Im sure you will

take care!

Initially, I downloaded the paper form and submitted it online but this was the message I got from the case officer - "Please note the form 40SP you have provided, is old version and is not acceptable."

Here's the link to current online 40sp form -

Smile From Turkey - still

Hey guys,

Just to ease some of the waiting strain, as I'm struggling to find similar stories from Turkey I wanted to briefly share ours. I'm an Australian citizen by birth and met my husband in Turkey 4 years ago and married in November 2017. We applied for visa subclass 309 to in October 2018 and finalized all the documents within a month. In the meantime, as my husband had been granted a swift Visitor Visa to Australia we had a year to come and go and spent two months during the new year period.

Only after we returned home did my husband receive a direct phone call on February 20 stating that our case officer in Ankara Turkey had approved the documents, that all documents were in order and nothing was required of us. She stated that they would now be sent for approval to the ambassador but it looked positive. Next to this she did confirm that should my husband wish to apply to Australia for a workers permit that they would be able to assist so we could move to Australia sooner and await our partner visa outcome there.

Soon after returning to Istanbul to wait out the period, we were offered jobs in Eastern Europe and now wait out our process here.

We are still actively updating our visa information where necessary i.e. telephone, address etc. The online "Further Assessment" status has still not moved, however after 6 months we are still patient and hopeful.

Just to clarify we were extremely thorough and timely with the application, including form 40sp, my sponsor application, police checks and health assessment.

I hope our example is relatable at all.

Please feel free to ask us about any further information and insight. WOuld love to try and help!

Good luck to us all!

Y

Do we need to give evidence of education of applicant for 309/100 spouse visa?

This comes up time and time again but people keep submitting a paper form. It's obsolete and was meant for paper applications, which are no longer an option. Even the checklist on immigration's website gives instructions for the sponsor to do the online form and does not mention a paper form anymore.

Unfortunately, many social media groups still share the misinformation and links to the old paper form. For some time immigration would still accept it, but it seems they're no longer doing so.

Getting close to 11 months on my wait for my partner. She's strained by the process. Hoping that post election there is a speed up in processing.
