I've seen two 309s on FB being granted yesterday, with application dates April 2020 and August 2019.

That 2 month one, with 1 year together, applied for Covid travel exemption, before grant.
The 10 month one had been married for 20 years with children.

This may be a question more for migration agents but has anyone heard of other Gov. departments (i.e.ATO) contacting the Immigration Dep. in order to escalate an issue or grant an exception for a visa due to exceptional circumstances?

Usually it would be the other way around, immigration checking with ATO or Centrelink regarding the Bona Fides of application.
Every department is independent, and hardly likely to be readily influenced by any other department.

Would have thought so too but when I called immigration last week with our situation..(after holding me on the line for 2 hrs) they said they're waiting on the ATO to give them instructions in order to expediate the visa.

When I asked for further clarification as to how the ATO has influence on the visa decision.. their reply was 'We're not obligated to explain how departments communicate' lol

I was hoping someone had dealt with similar info in the past. Seems super strange..

"instructions" may very well be information, to confirm some claim that has been made.

You need nothing other than a valid passport and a ticket, though to be safe , most people print out a copy of their visa grant in case there are any questions.
I believe 309 visa holders don't require to apply for an exemption to travel.

I can only imagine that delay when checking on previous tax debts etc, where applicable.

Many countries tax departments are now sharing information.
