Talamo1 replied to LillyGal29's topic in Other Temporary Australian VisasHi everyone, I’ve been following this forum for awhile and have finally decided to post, I am of Maori descent from NZ. In a sense I am glad that we aren’t the only ones who have had to wait, hope and continue to pray for my husbands 461(renewal). We applied on the 18th May 2017 (onshore, Been in Australia 7 Years now) and didn’t hear anything. Finally received an email on the 13/03/19 for additional docs, AFP and health insurance sent on the 15/03/19... Now nothing again. Feels so frustrating as we have been married 12 years, 5 children, own a house and the processing times seem so unfair. I’ve come to breaking points at times as we are literally at a stand still until it’s hopefully granted. I am very happy for those of you whose visas have been granted, but feel disheartened for applications submitted after ours... Get very stressed about it at times, anyway, it’s so nice to see this forum and just know we aren’t the only ones who’ve waited almost 2 years for a visa that only took 3 months to grant back in 2012.
