5 months and no case officer assigned for Partner 309 Offshore

Hi, I'm an Australian citizen and my wife is from India... has any applied ONLINE and has an idea of the timeline for assigned case officer? We have only received an acknowledgment saying application has been received. No correspondence after that for 5 months. We have submitted the medicals and PCC from one country. Partner is from INDIA. Waiting to submit a PCC from India as soon as a CO has been assigned?

Any help. advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Veenaunni
I wouldn't worry too much. I am in the same situation as you! We submitted our 309 on line on the 13/12/2013 and no case officer contact as yet. They will only contact you if they need more information.

Hey veenaunni,

As per AHC New Delhi's website, the case officer allocation time frame is 30-31 weeks since date of application. Below is the link to the AHC website:-
CURRENT AVERAGE PROCESSING TIMES - Australian High Commission

It is normal for them to not contact the applicant until a case officer is allocated to the application.
AHC was allocating case officers to January 2014 applications but recently they have stopped temporarily assigning case officers, not sure why. I'm trying to find out. Will post back when I do.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Becky - OP could probably use your warnings about being onshore while his 309 is processing, since he appears to be onshore at the moment.

Good Idea CG! Thanks for reminding me.

Hey veenaunni,

Have a read of my post (link to which is mentioned below) explaining the whole step-by step procedure AHC New Delhi follows to process the partner visa application and the warnings that are very important to remember to avoid any kind delays:-

Please feel free to ask if you have more questions. Hope this helps.
Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hi Rick..

Thanks for your response. Hopefully things are moving. Do update when you get your visa. All the very best

Hi thanks for your reply. Honestly that whole lot of info has freaked me out.
There has been cases of my friend's spouses who got their PMV in 6 months and they applied late last year. So it primarily varies individually.

Also online and paper applications have different timelines.

Good luck to you.

Hey veenaunni,

No worries happy to help.
My intention was to inform you of the important tips lack of which can possibly delay your visa, not of freaking you out. Prevention is better than cure. It is better for you to know these now than later when you stay onshore instead of being offshore and delay your grant for an extra 1-2 months at the least.

Processing time frames have changed a lot in comparison to last year and I'd be lying if I say that you will get your visa soon. There is a long waiting time period that cannot be change because that's how AHC works. With changes in partner visa time frames, a handful of case officer processing the applications and thousands of applications waiting to be processed is making this procedure more and more lengthy. AND yes, every case if different.
Current indicative processing time frame for AHC New Delhi is 8-11 months.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hello Becky

I dont think anyone can take an authoritative stand to announce when a visa may or may not be received. And if you read the original post, i specifically asked a doubt about case officers and did NOT ask for advise when our visa would be granted.

I think you need to read posts before you over load with information. Thanks!

No where in my post I have taken a "STAND" or claimed to know when someone's visa will be granted. Was trying to explain to you the trends of AHC.

And I did explain the case officer allocation process. As I mentioned in my last post, my intention was not of freaking you out, but to provide the information that I thought might be helpful since you were onshore as our Moderator CollegeGirl suggested.
Many applicants unknowingly stay onshore for longer than they should causing a delay in the visa grant.

You are the first "rude" person I have come across on this thread and honestly don't know how to respond to your post.
Never heard anyone complain about the information I share on not only this forum but two others...I guess there is always a first for everything.
And I do read the posts before responding to them. Read the thread from the beginning and my answer to it.
A fact is a fact and is not going to change because it FREAKED you out. The PMV/partner visa applications are taking 8-11 months to get approved at AHC New Delhi as per current trends. Sorry if I popped your bubble

A Tip:- If you have issues with information overload, this forum is definitely NOT a place for you. And putting a smiley at the end of a sentence doesn't make it a polite one.
Have a good one!

Kind Regards,
Becky
