    Visitor Visa- VACCU Referral

    Hi All, Does anyone have any contact details for VACCU or a local/federal MP in Brisbane? I am in a similar situation with my partner who's visa application is waiting with VACCU. His brother lives in Brisbane and we are attending his wedding. Looking if we can go down the MP route. We're due to fly on 24th August so getting very anxious now

    VACCU REFERAL

    Hi Lizbeth, Do you have an update on this topic?
  3. Thank you for your quick response! You've provided more info than we could find online! I called the immigration line and they couldn't help at all He's sent all requested documents back as soon as he was asked to with a cover letter providing information on the wedding, relationship and where/when he would be in Australia with proof of flight purchase. When you say contact an agent, is this at VACCU? He was only given a warning and the 100 hour community service, no prison time at all. This was all submitted in June, nearly 3 months before he required it. Thanks again for your help!
  4. Hi All, i wonder if you can offer some advice - My boyfriend and I are travelling to Australia at the end of August to celebrate his younger brothers wedding in Brisbane. I have applied for my visitor visa which has been accepted fine, but my partner's has been referred to VACCU. He was asked to submit any police record which he has done and has been told the wait could be up to 3 months before the application is even assigned to an agent. We're starting to worry that his application won't be approved in time for the wedding and he's deeply anxious about letting his family down. The background is, his first offense was a stop and search back in 2006 for possession of class C and the same in 2007. He served no prison time, but just received 100 hours community service (for the second occasion) which he completed as soon as possible. Does anyone know if there's anyone we can talk to to try and process the application faster? He's becoming very worried and anxious about telling his parents and brother that he may not be able to attend the wedding as a brother and best man. Anything you can advise will be deeply appreciated. He's forwarded all requested documents via email and post. Thanks in advance
