Hi everyone. I’ve been reading through this forum for a long time. I am currently going through a really bad phase myself and it’s extremely painful. Just going to share my timeline for those who might relate to me. I am the sponsor living in Australia, my husband lives in Pakistan. 

DOL: 15th July 2017 

Interview & Medical request: March 2018 

Ever since then there’s no correspondence from them aside from a few auto emails saying Your application is progressing. I also did visit my husband in Pakistan August 2018 to dec 2018. We uploaded our photos together and when i came back in March I got the interview call but my husband didn’t get any calls. I was so happy that his application is progressing however I was wrong because from then on until now there’s no progress. it’s been a total of above 22 months since we have lodged and 14 months since the interview and medical so now his medical examination is most certainly expired 😢 Throughout this entire time from march 2018 until now i’ve tried every single thing. I’ve been in contact with them every other month basically. I kept asking them about the progress to which they only replied Mandatory checks are being completed please be patient. So my husband applied for visit visa in February 2019 as well but he was rejected because of no travel history etc. I then called the immigration feedback line and told them my formal complaint regarding the delay to which I got an email from the Senior Manager in islamabad immi department saying we know the delay is causing you concern but department checks are going on & we can’t give you a definitive timeframe. 

I had been seeing a psychologist because of the stress this delay has caused me and my psychologist then wrote a letter giving out my personal health details and mentioning how i can’t travel to see my husband because i am now my mother’s sole career and my husband has been rejected a visit visa either so we have no option and my husband then emailed that letter and requested for priority processing however... we have been disappointed again.. they’ve sent us a generic email again saying that checks are going on and if there’s any update they will let us know.  

at this point we don’t honesty know what is going on. There’s a bit of citizenship delay for me too but everyone has told me that doesn’t affect this because I am a permenant resident so i can sponsor him. There’s no such complications in our application. we haven’t been previously married or anything i just don’t understand what’s causing the delay. we have not seen eachother since dec 2018 & with this state of application i don’t think they will finalis our application even by 24th month which is qhat most people say that by 2 years it does get finalised that’s the maximum. we are only a month and a half away from hitting 2 years and still nothing..... 

Male Applicants usually go through additional checks. these checks could be known as Internal/External Checks or Integrity checks but most commonly they are known as security checks. Most of us went through same checks and it took them 12 Months to 2.5 years to complete,  As name suggests they are externally done by other agencies and Department of home affairs has no control on them. Security checks normally takes more time if applicant is from (or has any connection) KPK or Bluchistan. We went through these checks about 10 years ago and most of my highly skilled friends and colleagues had same experience. Seems like your husband's case has been referred to additional checks.

There are many threads related to these checks so patience is the key. wait and good news will come soon.

@Marium generic email is basically recieved a few months after you have lodged your partner Visa... let's say 6 months later... in that the CO asks for updated versions of a few docs... so even if you have submitted all your documents before, there will still be a febe which will need to be submitted later. E.g updated bankstatements of past 3 months, electricity Bill's of last three months etc .

Hi All,

Have any of you guys applied a visitor visa for their partner to visit Australia after lodging offshore visa (Subclass-309)?

For instance, If applicant gets approval in subclass-309 at the time he/she is in Australia on visitor visa, I have heard case officer notifies applicant to leave the country in order to get visa. What is the process like? For example, after receiving that notification, If we both make travel plans to leave country for a week by making a trip to any nearby country (other than home country) and notify case officer that applicant has left country, what is the likelihood that case officer is going to approve visa and notify applicant before entering back to Australia from the trip?

I would like you guys to share your suggestions/experiences as I am starting to dig through the process of applying for visitor visa.

Is it wise to do medical and biometric test before asking of Case Officer? And upload the result so is there any chance that Visa processing might be speed up as we uploaded all the required documents including PCC, medical tests etc?

You pretty much have to do biometrics straight away its mandatory to identify you. Then PCC and medical is totally up to you when you want to get it done. I personally think it doesnt make a difference. Expiry of either you PCC or medical(whichever is longest) will determine your last date of entry if the visa is granted

Thanks, it means if we do biometric, medical, PCC and polio vaccination soon after lodging of application then chances of speeding up the visa process is high? And is it good to do medical test before asking of Case Officer? Or shall we wait for Case Officer to intimate us for medical test?

Hello my dear, After applying for partner visa 309, its difficult to get visitors visa. My wife applied for partner visa on Oct, 2017 and up till now she has not be granted. I have applied for visitors visa 3 times but was rejected. Just last month (after 19 months) the CO requested for further information (my pcc and wife's pcc, bills etc). These days its very difficult to get visitor visa approved. I think its advisable to go thru immigration lawyers

good luck

So obviously you gota get your biometrics done straight away. Then get your PCC and medical done after that. It is helpful i guess to speed things up but at the same time they might expire before you visa is granted. Remember before you get your medical done you have to get this polio certificate from PIMS Islamabad if u in Islamabad otherwise they wont do your medical.

Yes only for the applicant. And if they need it for the sponsor too the case officer will ask for it

Chances of expiration of PCC and Medical also exist even if Case Officer asked the applicant to do? But submitting it before intimation of Case Officer are likely to speed up the visa processing time? Correct me if I'm wrong.
