Some clients in Byron Bay have been horrified recently when I’ve told them they may need to wait over 2 years for a decision on their Partner Visa Australia application. As at today’s date 19 September 2018, partner visa Australia applications are taking between 19-25 months to be decided.
With the help of a migration agent Australia though, there are some things you can do to increase the chance of your application being decided as early as possible, such as lodging a “decision-ready” application.
Lodging a decision-ready application maximises the chance of a quick decision and minimises the chance of refusal because:
- your Case Officer already has all the information he or she needs to make the decision, and
- your Case Officer already has all the required documents from you and your sponsor, and
- includes a written submission identifying how the application meets all applicable legislative criteria for grant of the visa.
Each case is different and a quick decision can’t be guaranteed, of course. But my decision-ready Partner Visa applications for Byron Bay clients are consistently decided within 12 months, and I have a 100% success rate.
