Hi Everyone,   I am living in Pakistan and i applied for my partner visa 309/100 on 1st June 2016.  My medical is done, bio metrics is done, form 80 is submitted. It has past now 12 months. When i inquire about my visa status, they reply every freaking time that my application is under departmental checks from Australia.   

 

Can any body please guide about this departmental checks and how much tentative time it takes on this step?  

Thanks  

 

Irfan

Hey everyone thanks for your help! Super helpful!

Another question: does every document have to be certified? I keep hearing different things about this. For example, our defacto certificate? If we are scanning and uploading the original, is that enough? Or do we have to get a colour copy certified and then upload it? Other than i'd's and personal documents what else has to be certified? Feel like I live at the JP's! Haha.

Bit confused in this area. Thanks again in advance!

Hey Adam
I have uploaded all scan copy of original documents. You can use pdf24 to make pdf. Person who apply on paper must certify documents.

That means my decision is not gonna come for another 2 months i guess as my case is pending in checks?

Did you inquire them? what did they say about your case status?

Everytime they used to say that your case is in progress and the processing time is 12 to 15 months and you are still under the timeframe. So you'll get your decision under the timeline.

I had a long conversation with the partner visa head of Islamabad regarding the timeframe. She said the old applications are under the previous standard time of 12 months. Only new applications will be assessed under 14 months timeframe. But in my case they only say that we have sent your case to Australia for security checks and we cannot update anything till we hear on your checks.

 

I dnt understand their timeframe criteria. I guess your case is also struck on security checks.

Hello guys

The Department had requested for the PCC for my Australian sponsor who lived in Tanzania for a couple of years. I successfully uploaded  the Police Certificates for my sponsor who is now back to Australia,  the Australia Federal Police (AFP) Certificate was done under name search and the Tanzania PCC was based on fingerprints. I successfully uploaded both  and receipt was acknowledged. Today I was passing through my application and  have found '0 received' for AFP PCC, what does it mean? Does it mean that it is mandatory for the Australian sponsor to take the fingerprint based PCC?

 

Will appreciate for the reply.

Hey guys, thanks again for all your help. We have paid and begun uploading documents woo!

 

We think we have everything ready to go, just clarifying things before we get right in to it (tonight)

 

Under which category/subcategory do we upload our personal statements, and on who's account? Both on his? or one on Mine (sponsor)?

 

and, do we have to upload the financial/social/commitment/household statements again? even though we basically uploaded the same thing in the applicants form at the beginning of the process? If we do have to upload these, do we both have to sign them or can only one of us?

 

Thanks again in advance, fingers crossed all goes well.

 

Savanna and Adam.

S n A
It's good to hear you are uploading documents.
You both write statement about relationships and sign it individually. You should upload it under further relationship evidence of relationship evidence. It can be uploaded from applicant application.

Yes, you have to write necessary statements again. If the statement is joint then you both have to sign.

Thanks

Hi guys! Just a question. I am applying from Philippines and haven't received any update in my lodged application yet. I read about the PSA documents (such as marriage cert, birth cert etc.) that I have to request it from the Philippine Statistics Authority to deliver to embassy. I have uploaded copies of these in the attachment page. What shall I do? Will I request for it now or shall I wait for the email asking for these docs? Big thanks!

I did my health checks straight away, you don't have to wait for them to request it.
