  • 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.
  • Johno 28th January 2021 at 8:58 am on subclass 801 Visa Processing Times in 2020Hi there, I have been waiting for 14 months since submitted the 801 and I'm from Canada. Already got interviewed for the 820, submitted everything required when applying and kept providing additional updated evidence every few months since. Should I submit an enquiry or wait? Sounds like you're saying the average wait time for a 801 is 14.4 months so...
  • J R 26th January 2021 at 8:32 pm on Australian Partner Visas in the PipeLineI sincerely hope that’s not the current situation even though such prioritisation is in place because I’m living in the non designated regional area and applying from offshore, lol~  What I've recently seen is that quite a number of offshore applications being granted within as short as 39 days to as long as 18 months after lodgement. I also personally experienced being...
  • J R 26th January 2021 at 3:26 pm on Australian Partner Visas in the PipeLineWell, that should explain why I've been hearing people/lawyers saying they've been experiencing much shorter turnaround time for some cases as the department does seem to be dedicating most resources to partner visas since late 2020 in order to catch up with what was held back by COVID. But they will really need to decuple their workload if they wanted...
  • J R 26th January 2021 at 12:21 pm on Australian Partner Visas in the PipeLineGreat thanks! Does your expectation come from the slowing down in visa processing due to COVID-19 or from an increase in the number of applications? If that's the case, how would the immi department fulfil the nearly doubled allocations for partner visas set by the government this financial year? Do you think they've recently been pushed by the government to...
  • J R 25th January 2021 at 11:58 pm on Australian Partner Visas in the PipeLineHi Admin, Have the updated figures in the pipeline up to the end of 2020 come out yet? Also do you have data on the recent processing pace for 309? ie. number of grants per month worldwide. Thanks a lot!
  • Neol 20th January 2021 at 8:02 pm on subclass 801 Visa Processing Times in 2020Hi, I have been waiting for 13months since the eligibility Dec 2019 (801). I read your post above to use the Enquiry Form. Is there going to be a problem if I send one myself although I am represented by an agent? She keeps telling me to wait when I request her to send an enquiry.
