Timeline (309-Spouse visa) applied in May?

Recommended Posts

Asalam alikum everyone,

Because of being impatient for my visa 1 more question arises. Does it effect the processing time of visa if it has been applied from sydney through consultant?

Thanks :)

No it doesn't matter! My partner applied for me through an Agent in AUS, Adelaide. And I am living in Dubai. I am waiting for almost 7 months and 22 days now for the good news.
Processing time is the same as far as you submit all the documents! We keep providing updates of our continuing relationship though!

Hi there,
Can we apply visit visa for the spouse right after the offshore partner (309) visa ? Thing is that I want my spouse to stay with me in Australia during the visa processing time.

@irggy DIBP says that at the time of the application of visa AND at the time of grant, applicant MUST BE outside Australia BUT nowhere it says that during the time of visa processing and applicant can not be in Australia.

Hi y'all,

Total processing time fr visit visa is 3 to 6 weeks. And virually the outcome of visit visa application does not affect spouse visa application. And spouse visa applicant can stay in Australia for the duration of the visit visa, but if applicant is in Australia at the time of spouse visa grant, case officer email applicant to go ofshore for 309 visa to be granted.

In case, for any reason visit visa is rejected it does not affect 309 application, but it does appear in one's immigration history that a visa of a different category was applied and rejected, and based on the reason of rejection, your decision on 309 visa can take extra longer due to higher scrutiny and checks.

Hope this helps,
Asim

AoA

When is the case officer alloted? Like do they send an email or something? How can we know that case officer is alloted and working on our case ? :/

well guys i agree these are two different visas, you can apply for visit after spouse. it will affect decision, not in terms of acceptance or refusal,but it can delay the grant. (keeping in mind AHC-isb is not very efficient)

But every case is different so can ask AHC about your case

You don't. If they want something they will contact you, if not, you will not hear until a decision is made. COs prefer to spend time processing visas rather than sending emails to introduce themselves. :)

it was a short interview, 10-15 minutes. the case officer asked me my husbands date of birth, his family, our relationship history (basically things we had written in the application). in our case we havent had rukhsati (we have done nikkah) so the case officer asked about rukhsati plans etc.
