You may not require it being that you are from Germany.

Yea, maybe. Let’s wait and see! But, I’m not sure whether to do the medical now or when requested?

Personally, I would do it ASAP.

Petition

Hi all,

I know this was posted previously but I'm going to post it again for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. This is a link to the petition that will be reviewed and debated in Parliament this upcoming Monday (Aug 31st). It highlights the need for changes in the partner visa process for a fairer, quicker process. For those of us who are being sponsored and currently stuck in Australia unable to leave for our visa to be granted, this is our chance to change the rule of offshore visas only being granted offshore!

If you or your partner, family, or friends are Australian citizens, please sign the petition as soon as possible. The more signatures, the more weight this thing carries. It only takes a minute

Thanks!!

There is a possible drawback to that, if it was to be passed.

We know that immigration need to control the numbers entering Australia, and they will find ways to reach their targets.

If it is legislated that offshore applications can be granted while onshore , they may stop granting visitor visas to offshore partner visa applicants.

During COVID, that rule should be relaxed, as a special situation, and if that was presented as a separate issue, I feel it would have a good chance to be granted.

The wording of the bill to be debated is of concern, where it says "refusing to let people who are currently in Australia on a temporary visa and who are granted an offshore partner visa to activate that visa without having to fly overseas".

I can imagine the reply regarding this: "people who are currently in Australia on a temporary visa and who are granted an offshore partner visa. As they do not need to leave, if it has been granted.

We know what he means, but the wording could have been a bit better, for something that needs to be very clear.

For heaven's sake not this again!
The fact that it has struggled to gain so few signatures is a clear indication that in these perilous times people are far more concerned with their own situation.
Other people have commented that the petition is poorly constructed, is contradictory, and choosing to present it at this time is foolhardy.
I doubt greatly it will be "debated" it will be probably " tabled" and the relevant minister will have 90 days to respond.
Of course the visa system needs overhauling, but the middle of a pandemic , when Citizens cant even visit their own children because they live on the other side of the state border, is not the best time to do it!

J and E is there a Bill being tabled or are we talking about a petition?
I am a bit confused

Do you know how long their 309 visa was in the system?
