I have applied for a partner visa for my wife on 09 may 2019, we had a RFI in November 2020 for Police Clearance which we have submitted and we are still awaiting the response. She is on a visitor visa here and it expires on 21 feb 2021 but the thing is she is pregnant and her due date is 17th feb 2021 is there any option of a bridging visa for us to apply as we wouldn't be able to travel immediately after birth.

I had a friend of mine who got their Bridging Visa A based on her 309 as her Visitor Visa got expired but then mine was rejected last week citing 309 is not eligible for a bridging visa. I am bit confused and with so much financial difficulties it would be tough for a new visa as its expensive as well. Strangely though got our Medicare card renewed till Feb 2022 without applying for the extension.

Please suggest me for some options as we are running out of time.

Thanks,
Kartheesh

Hi Kartheesh, i'm not sure why it was rejected as i applied for my mum's bridging visa who was in a similar position and it was granted in 2 days.
When applying for the bridging visa, i did send them a brief letter describing her circumstances. I mentioned her old age and the fact that her entire family is in australia and she cannot travel due to Covid.

That's quite sad and unfortunate. I think given your circumstances, it would be best to hire an immigration lawyer/agent.

Don’t send them email go in person if you are in Sydney go to Lee st and talk to them face to face I’m sure like this they will give you more option.

Kartheesh 01-25-2021 03:24 AM

Hi guys, I just finished lodging my application, and am a little bit confused.

Were you guys able to attach documents before the submission?
ImmiAccount did not prompt me to attach required documents, so I only started attaching now after the payment was processes.

Also, I thought there was a 60 file cap but there seems to be 100. Did they change the cap?

Also, ImmiAccount says to attach required documents first, and then attach recommended ones. Where does it say the required documents because I can only see a list of recommended files to attach?

So sorry for all these questions but this is really getting me confused and worried.

Thanks for all your help in advance!

We didn’t have any required documents either only recommended, I started to attach documents straight away. Hoping for the best. 🤞
Where are u applying from?
