I had applied for 309 subclass in July at Bangkok office as well. And they said the same 6-9 months processing and i havnt heard any thing of them as yet.
Any one of you got any answer?
not yet , still waiting nd waiting :( . have they asked you for medical or not ? any update ?
yeah i did the medical as soon as i got acknowledgment letter, which was in july, and no updates as yet. I was hoping to go by the end of this year but i dont knw
Also u can lodge complains against AHC islamabad by this link::
Contact Us - Compliments and Complaints - Department of Immigration and Citizenship
Also call the AHC Islamabad.
i think we can't complaint as the processing time mentioned on acknowledgment letter is 6-9 months . second AHC Islamabad is not processing the application , AHC Bangkok are the one who are processing.
when did u lodge your application and what processing time you got in your acknowledgment letter ?
this thread is about Timeline (309-Spouse visa) not student visa. well they have very strict policy regarding student visa these days, plus after 1st august Islamabad AHC dont processing student visa, its in Adelaide i think.
Honestly, I feel that the visa processing time is very subjective. I depends on the case officer whether to approve it immediately or not. But it would also help if your application is front-loaded. As for my case, I submitted a really complete application but I still feel that the efficiency of my case officer played a major part in the grant of my visa in two weeks!
I will probably send my CO a thank you card. Really. He's the greatest Santa Claus ever! (wink!)
Good luck to all partner/spouse visa applicants. I hope that it's also Xmas in November for you, guys!

Partner Temporary Visa (Subclass 820 Onshore) lodged on 2nd Nov 2009, granted on 16th November 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No bond (AoS), no interview!!!!!
Well that really depends upon your nationality or assessment level, to be precise. If you had the passport of Pakistani or Indian or any assessment level 4
country then thats a miracle tht happens once in a blue moon.
However if your passport is of level 1,2 or 3 then i believe thts not something unusual.
Well good luck any ways n have a great life.
Well any of other ppl who applied in bangkok got any response??????????
