  • gianca 28th June 2021 at 11:24 am on subclass 801 Visa Processing TimesI'll never understand the logic and inconsistency of Australian visa processing times. Immigration asks an impossible amount of detail, and then sits on it arbitrarily with no feedback at all. A shockingly poor treatment. What policy outcome is such treatment aimed at achieving? The liberal conservative government needs to answer.
  • Mary 11th June 2021 at 10:46 pm on Partner Visa – Non-migrating members of the family unitSo the answer is no for "Does the applicant have any members of their family unit not traveling to Australia who are not Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents?" if my partner is an australian citizen and i am the one applying from another country, and yes “Does the applicant have any parents, siblings or children including those that are...
  • John 20th May 2021 at 12:48 pm on Partner Visa Planning Levels 2020/21Hi Admin, I am assuming these levels/grants are for financial year (July to June). July 2020- June 21: 72,300 places. Has government announced any planning levels for July 2021 to June 2022?
  • J R 26th March 2021 at 6:15 pm on Australian Partner Visas in the PipeLineSorry, spotted a typo in my comment, the grant date should be 25/03/2021. DOL is 14/12/2020.
  • J R 26th March 2021 at 6:13 pm on Australian Partner Visas in the PipeLineHi Admin, We just got our 309/100 double grant on 25/12/2021. YAY! Total 101 days of waiting with 2 RFIs, not too bad from the Guangzhou office. As promised, I've already input my timeline in the statistics. Cheers!
  • J W 12th March 2021 at 2:02 pm on Australian Partner Visas in the PipeLineThese numbers are horrendous. Married in Australia, we're waiting for the 820 for 13 months now. I'm an (anglo-)Aussie, she's Chinese. Case Officer not even appointed to the onshore application. Done everything possible to show the genuine and continuing relationship. Other applications get granted in just a few months - why is this?
  • John 26th February 2021 at 12:11 am on Partner Visa Pipelines for Applications onhandThanks a lot for maintaining such useful info blog!
  • John 25th February 2021 at 12:57 pm on Partner Visa Pipelines for Applications onhandHi, are there are quotas or upper cap limits on how many visas immigration can grant in partner/family stream? I know skilled visas are usually capped. But are family visas similar? I am interested to know about subclass 300 and 309. Also is it possible to lodge an FOI for visas granted for each visa subclass for year 2020? thank...
  • Johno 28th January 2021 at 7:17 pm on subclass 801 Visa Processing Times in 2020So you asked about processing times in an extra document you submitted to your IMMI account instead of using the processing centre enquiry form? I literally add extra things every month since we applied with all the required documents back in November 2019 and never heard from them. I don't understand how they would open a new document submitted as...
  • Johno 28th January 2021 at 11:44 am on subclass 801 Visa Processing Times in 2020Thank you. I applied for the 820 in Nov 2017, had an interview by phone in Mar 2019 and it was then approved 5 mins after the call ended. What do you mean by updating something else? I just keep adding big events photos, travel plans & photos, joint bills, big appliances joint account payments, etc.

  • Ingrid 31st July 2021 at 9:33 am on Lawful Residence Date for Australian CitizenshipHi there, Your website has been very helpful, thank you.

  • Kelly 20th July 2021 at 6:27 am on subclass 309 Visa Processing Times in 2020Flights got cancelled this morning unfortunately! Surprised it was so far in advance to be honest. I spoke to an operator at Qatar airlines, they said they don't prioritise expensive tickets just tickets booked directly through the airline... not sure if I believe that! Have signed up to the repatriation flights.. fingers crossed!

So am I correct in...

An Australian family unit is the applicant, partner and dependants. Dependants are normally children. More on this at https://www.abcdiamond.com.au/australian-family-unit-for-visa-purpose/
