Can say for certain that neither of us have an undeclared debt..that's what's baffling.

I was hoping someone had dealt with similar info in the past. Seems super strange..
I can only imagine that delay when checking on previous tax debts etc, where applicable.

Many countries tax departments are now sharing information.

If you had one, they might have found it, and finalised it, but if you haven't, it might take them longer to realise you don't have one...

There are so many uncertainties just now with COVID, there might be many reasons for various delays.

Has the applicant had any other visa, and spent time in Australia before ?

Yes, the applicants been twice in Aus (Tourist 600). Always adhered to conditions and his current 600 is still valid.

hello guys,
wanted to ask a question, if u r onshore and the department asks u to leave the country for a decision to be made

How do u even prove to the airlines that u r able to fly back to Australia, as ur visitor visa expires and ur 309 will be finalised once i will be outside,
coz as far as I am aware, they dont let board if we dont have proof that we can return back as per the Return ticket booked

Hello everyone
my first post is a question . My wife (Chinese citizen in china) and I permanent resident have applied in January for a 309 and where meant to meet again in February but my flight was canceled for obvious reasons !
Since there is no easing in sight we decided to apply for a tourist visa under the special circumstances because she is my wife !

We aren’t sure what to put in the letter in regards to the time for her to stay here then usually tourist visas are 90 days maximum per stay but with the situation of flights and quarantine it seems very tight !

Should we ask in the letter for a longer duration or will the department adjust that automatically?

Any ideas are deeply appreciated

I have applied for 309 Visa on 28 March 2019. I submitted the documents to migration agent in Sydney. I didn't receive any email until RFI on 2 March 2020. So I have a confusion that does the RFI means my application has been allocated a case officer or not?
It will be 4 months since RFI and 15 months past the lodgement. The agent says I have to wait more as I don't have any case officer.
So did someone had similar experience?

To get an RFI, a case officer must have sent you that request. Hence a case officer has looked at it.

The main reason for delays at the moment are probably due to fewer visas being granted due to the Coronavirus.

The fastest I have seen took 1 hour. Some take a lot longer.
