Perhaps they could say no on the additional information but I'd say it would be harsh if it was rejected on something they'd already reviewed.
Hi there! Thanks for the response!
I now have another worry I am facing, and tying to think of more evidence to pour onot them before they make their decision!
I have done all the general evidence now am trying to think of MORE! People said nothing is too much evidence to submit. It is ok to keep sending them new evidence even though they don't ask for any more additional evidence, until they conclude their decision, right?

I'm in the process of applying for my 309/100 - just collecting evidence! Me and my partner are offshore in the U.K. He gained Aussie citizenship through decent, and is in the process of interviewing for a job in Melbourne - expected start date in March. Hopefully the processing time isn't too long so we arnt apart for that long!

A few of the late August and September applicants are yet to hear anything if that helps .

There's a London Embassy thread on here and also a good one on PomsInOz. Find it good to be part of a few so you can see different stories etc.

Hi I'm Australian and have applied to sponsor my Guinean husband. We also applied for three tourist visas in the meantime which were all refused. The partner visa application was submitted last January so it's been a year now. I went home to have some medical treatment and see my family and care for my ex who is unwell and now I'm back in Africa with my ex and my husband playing the waiting game. I never got told there was a case office but a year top the day of application received a letter "inviting" my husband and his children to an interview several countries distance away,and that means at least five borders and visas and it's in three weeks! I still don't know how we're going to get there, it's really hard and as this country had been in lockdown lately because of a nonsense dictator there are barely any flights even. I think we can only afford to go by car. Which actually takes days.
Anyway. Don't hold your breath. I think West Africans are considered very very high risk but I think yours will still take a bit of time.
I wish you all the best and thanks for trying to make sure we've all got company while we wait!

Hi guys!

Regarding the innitial entry date for 309, would it be possible to ask to change if there is a proper reason? I have a work contract I cannot break, and I know on the guideline you cannot change it, but I keep seeing posts about it and am wondering if that is ever possible depending on the reason!?!?!

I don't think so. The last possible entry date is defined by the expiry of your medical and/or police checks. Maybe it is possible for compassionate reasons, but I doubt work will be a valid reason.

Are you in a position where you could enter and then leave again for the sake of the visa?

I have never seen anyone been successful in getting it changed. DIBP is of the opinion if you are applying to move to Australia you should be ready to go.

Are you able to take a week off to fly to Australia and then come back? I know it is expensive but you would then meet the initial entry requirement.
