Australian Partner Visa 2014 India Updates

Recommended Posts

I applied in Colombo Sri Lanka, 

DOA : 15-12-2013

Medical : 20-Jan_2014

 

On 20 Feb 2014 received a mail saying : "I am the case officer who has been assigned to your application.This email is to let you know that your application has now been queued in order of lodgement date for consideration by a senior officer. Please refrain from contacting your case officer for a progress update during this time, as this will not expedite the process in any way and we will not respond to these queries." 

 

after this no response at all so far.......

Hi

 

If we check this link http://australianvisaforum.com/topic/346-partner-visa-2013-updates-only/page-37 , we can see that shine applied on 29-11-13 and got visa yday. So yours could be in the next 2-3 weeks. My suggestion is to wait for a couple more weeks and hope to hear the good news soon.

Hi All,

 

I have lodged my file on 13/01/14. this is my 31 weeks since I lodge my file I called them yesterday (mumbai number)  they told me since I have submitted all my docs including medical and pcc I might not get my case officer my file might go straight to final queue is that possible? They only assign case office if they need any documents. 

 

I am tracking my application on-line nothing is changed don't know what to do

Hi

 

Kaka too had a similar scenario as mentioned a little above. He had a clear update on his application status. But that doesnt seem to be the case here. Right?

 

I think you should wait a couple more days and then call the New Delhi office. Ask them your application status and if they are not sure then will you be notifed when it goes in the queue.

 

I hope you are tracking the status through immi-account. Right?

Hi,

 

I have applied for partner visa in Feb-2014. Got acknowledgement letter in last week of Mar-2014. Medical completed and submitted in last week of Apr-2014. Till date, We have not received any inquiry related to PCC yet. 

 

Has anyone experienced similar situation where medical is requested but not PCC? Please share experience of similar case.

 

Question: Is it possible to obtain PCC for Australia from Passport Regional Office without having request letter from Australian Immigration? If yes, what are the documents required for PCC from Regional Passport Office?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi

 

Normally its the case officer who will tell you that you need PCC incase its not in the application.

 

But my suggestion is not to wait for that. It just increases the processing time. Better make it part of your application.

 

Getting a PCC in India is very simple. Just make an online appointment and visit the passport office. The appointment letter will tell you what all you need to take there. You will also need a proof that you need PCC. Just take a print-out of the check-list for australian partner visa. There is a point there that says that we need PCC, which is enough for the proof. Fill the check-list and submit it with the rest of the documents.

Thank you, Rtjfromkerala..

 

From your experience, when should I expect case officer to be assigned to my partner's visa file?

 

After case officer is assigned and if all documents are complete, how long would it take to grant visa? I understand that all time advice here will be gut estimates but not 100% perfect, though any indicative time will be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Hi

 

I have been closely following the CO allocations and visa grantings of applicants in this forum.

 

From this experience, I believe Feb 2014 applicants should get COs or get finally queued by Sept 2014 atleast.

 

I believe visa grant would take anywhere between 1-2 months after final queue.

 

But 1 important thing for you is the pcc. I got an appointment after 1 month. I am not sure if you can go to passport office without appointment and get he pcc done. So please make sure you get this done at the earliest.

So sorry to hear that.

 

Well all that we can do is wait for the time being, I guess.

 

Try connecting to New Delhi office(not Mumbai) after a couple more days. I think they would be able to give a more positive reply, if they pick up.

Thanks. It's very helpful to know. It's understandable that not all cases are same, and any information should be taken as indicative timeline. From looking at all replies in this forum, I guess 70% cases follow the pattern.
