I'm still trying to make it work between us, because i really want it to.

it is very complicated, i know

But thank you everyone, for the replies. just praying and keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.
Oh.. that’s tricky... in that case, you do have your application id right? If so, then you can call the immi department helpline and ask them yourself about the status of your application. They will just ask you a few personal details to verify it’s you and they shall help you with the same. They can’t share the processing timelines but they can share what appears on your immi page and it’s status.
I am not sure how it works in case of an agent involved and what agent details they may need.
I’d let anyone who knows that aspect of it to comment on this.

It’s a long shot, but if it works then it could help calm your nerves. And when you call the department neither your husband nor your agent will get notified.

I canít even imagine what you may be going thru.
Me and my husband are away too as we applied offshore, and itís so difficult to cope with the distance.
I really hope it works out soon for the both of you. And that both shall be able to settle your differences soon.
Donít lose hope dear, and keep trying.

If itís ok with you sharing from which country you have applied, then I am sure there are many helpful people out here who can share the timelines of that processing office.

Take care.

Hi, May I ask how you knew that your visa was processed through Fiji please ?
I applied from New Zealand as well.

Submitted in March 2019, request for health exams yesterday by an email. It didn’t show any information about immigration branch or office.

Thanks

The result is longer waiting lists. I just don't agree with you that it is down to the colour of the applicant.

From the 86 subclass 309 grants that I have seen this year (with 2 or more grants), the three countries that wait the longest, on average, are Canada, Iraq and the USA.

The fastest are Turkey and Fiji.

That does not indicate that the applicants colour has anything to do with it.
.
  • Turkey, 3 grants between 1.4 and 7.1 months with an average of 4.5 months
  • Fiji, 2 grants between 4.7 and 5.2 months with an average of 5 months
  • UK, 12 grants between 2.7 and 9 months with an average of 5.3 months
  • Netherlands, 2 grants between 2.7 and 8.6 months with an average of 5.7 months
  • India, 9 grants between 3 and 15.1 months with an average of 6.5 months
  • Germany, 5 grants between 5.5 and 14.9 months with an average of 8.4 months
  • Thailand, 3 grants between 4 and 10.8 months with an average of 8.5 months
  • Lebanon, 5 grants between 8.1 and 9.4 months with an average of 8.6 months
  • Canada, 10 grants between 6 and 18.4 months with an average of 9.5 months
  • Iraq, 2 grants between 8.8 and 12.8 months with an average of 10.8 months
  • USA, 15 grants between 10.9 and 18.6 months with an average of 13.6 months
I think there are no rules in regard to the processing time and that is just a tricky way to confuse the applicants and make them suffer in order to send a message to anyone who wants to migrate to Australia that it is not easy and to hesitate thinking about it.

I am talking from our experience. My wife was granted visa subclass 100 after waiting for 26 months and a half from the date of her eligibility to apply. That was after we raised the issue with the local MP and then, after a few days we received an email with the granted visa.

During the waiting time, there was no case office assigned and no contacts whatsoever from the department and they never respond to our inquiries by phone or email and never asked to provide further documents. We really had a very hard time waiting.

Benjamin, I think it is a good idea to ask the local MP for help.
Regarding my wife's 309 visa, she waited for more than 9 months to get it. We didn't use an agent, I fill in all the forms and submitted the application along with all required documents.
