Asides the superannuation statement
I am being asked for the same thing. Evidence of my intentions to reside in AU, what did you attach? What is PCC?

Hopefully after that it will be a speedy progress to grant !

I have an update.. I contacted the case worker and she has advised that we do in fact need the AFP check even though he hasnít lived in Oz for 17 years.. I guess its down to their discretion and maybe for men (not being sexist!) but they seem to be a bit keener on making sure thereís nothing funny going on e.g., coercion, arranged marriage without consent, domestic violence etc..

Luckily we had applied for it anyway on 19 Nov after the RFI request but unfortunately AFP didnít advise that it had been posted until 7 Dec so I guess we missed the final post dates with it being the holidays. More waiting but weíve waited this long so hopefully it arrives soon and that will be the final step. Such a shame it canít be sent via email seeing as weíll be uploading it anyway! Canít complain, we should have just got this earlier just in case so Iím kicking myself now.

On the bright side, I had a response from Immigration in Belgrade in less than 24 hours so that was great service! If only snail mail to the UK was as quick!

309 currently onshore

Hello folks,

I've been following this thread and I hope we all get our visas soon
I have a couple of questions:

1. I have an Australian PR. I got married in December '19. My wife applied for her onshore 309 visa (from India), in Jan 2020. She had got a visitor visa and she came to Australia with me. She was supposed to go back, in April (since there's a 90 day limit for each visit). Due to covid restrictions, we were able to get another extended visitor visa for her, up to middle of Jan 2021. We are looking at what would be the best option to stay back here after her current visitor visa ends. There is an option for Bridging visa (in my wife's Immi application). Do I apply for a Bridging visa or re-apply for another visitor visa?

2. Meanwhile, my wife's case officer contacted us and asked us both to get our Australian PCCs, my Indian PCC and Form 80 for my wife. The case officer has given us 28 days to respond with these documents. The Australian PCCs are already on the way. I have applied for my PCC, via VFS. But, I doubt that I would receive my Indian PCC, within 28 days from RFI. If so, how do I let the Case officer know that I have applied for the PCC? I do not have the case officer's email or phone number.

Thanks in advance.

You can upload the evidence that you have applied for it - e.g. a receipt for the payment or a copy of an automated notification that the request has been received. You may get lucky and they may make a decision on that alone. Just upload whatever you have in your Immi account in the section for the check.

Exactly the same thing has happened to us this week, sponsor's AFP check hasn't arrived and the 28 days was up yesterday! I emailed the embassy that is dealing with my application (just found a generic email address on Google ) putting the reference numbers in the title and they responded in less than 24 hours to say they would give me extra time for it to arrive. I'm sure they are being slightly more generous because of Covid-19 and seasonal delays so shouldn't be a problem especially if you can show you did it in a timely way when asked.

I can't help on the other point but I'm sure someone else will be able to. Good luck..

I also had to get an Indian PCC as I lived there for 4 years. Surprisingly, this arrived within about a week of applying through the Indian consulate. I am not sure if it was quicker as I am not an Indian national, but it seemed that from the US the process was remarkably efficient. Either way, probably good to upload the evidence that you have applied for the PCC prior to the 28 days expiry.

Well, it was worth a shot I guess. My wife was also only 21 when she left Australia so very little time to get into serious trouble I guess!

Good luck with the application and I hope you get a nice start to the new year with a visa grant!
