  • Holly 3rd December 2020 at 8:21 pm on subclass 309 Visa Processing Times in 2020Hello! I wanted to share as i use this site often, that my husbands 309 got approved.

  • N 2nd December 2020 at 5:50 pm on subclass 309 Visa Processing Times in 2020Hi Sonia, I would ask why they want to change the name since a quick google search says that it takes on average 15 days to reissue a new passport in India. A new PCC also takes 15-20 days on average. Assuming 15 days each, it's still longer than the 28 days window given. You will likely need to call...

No need to get excited, unfortunately we got our hope up but still nothing 21 months into waiting. Wishing you better luck the my partner and I are having with getting a grant.
  • Mk 30th November 2020 at 8:38 pm on subclass 309 Visa Processing Times in 2020Have to disagree with you Admin, some countries like Afghanistan can't even get a visitor visa (I'm talking pre covid - we tried multiple times) so it can be considered descrimiation based on the applicant's country of origin (the comment given at the bottom of our refusal notice was that they didn't believe my partner would return to Afghanistan due...

  • Karlien Breukelman 18th January 2021 at 4:22 pm on Subclass 309 Visas Granted in 2021Hi Admin Just a quick question. Just want to confirm that once the visa is granted, it states on the document the time frame you have to enter Australia, which is 12 months from the date the visa is granted, right? Is it still 12 months they give you to enter Australia? Me and my husband will go over first...

  • J R 12th January 2021 at 3:52 pm on Dubai Subclass 309 applications.Well, that explains it I guess. It's a good thing if they are allowing more time for couples who have weaker evidence to accumulate more evidence rather than refusing their applications right away. I do hope most of the cases being put aside were waiting on new evidence rather than going through tribunal processes. Oh, and I've seen another 10-year...
  • J R 12th January 2021 at 3:13 am on Dubai Subclass 309 applications.Oh Gosh, how were these applications all left behind and not getting processed? Is there a circumstance where a CO can't refuse or grant a visa but has to wait indefinitely on something? I thought they usually make a decision based on what's ultimately provided to them.
  • Sonia Sharma 10th January 2021 at 9:30 pm on subclass 309 Visa Processing Times in 2020That means People who have been asked fr rfi are less likely to get the visa grant?

  • Surbhi 10th October 2020 at 2:57 am on 72,300 Partner Visas Allocated for 2020-21Hi Admin, With the increase in Partner visa cap, does that mean that more partner visas can be allowed to be applied? How is the department deciding on this, when already they have such a huge back log ? Does that mean the processing might get faster? Currently even after waiting for 9 months, I do not feel confident that...
  • Nora B 15th September 2020 at 12:30 am on subclass 801 Visa Processing Times in 2020Hi guys, I currently have been waiting for just over 14 monts from the date of eligibility (lodged the 820 in 2017 July and was granted the 801 in May 2019). I just saw today that the global processing time for the 801 has increased from 10-17 months to 13-25. Freaking out a bit as the potential of waiting another...
  • Guest 21st July 2020 at 8:34 am on subclass 801 Visa Processing Times in 2020Some fast times for the 801. I guess that while the overseas processing is on hold, probably as much as possible to purely to reduce the numbers that can enter Australia and therefore avoid increasing quarantine numbers, there is more time to spend on the onshore processing that doesn't have the "entry to Australia" issue.
  • Nelson 9th June 2020 at 11:38 am on Partner Visa and PMV grants April and May 2020Hi Admin, Forgive me, what I meant to say was 1 309 grant globally in the month of May. I do realize that my wife and I would likely be on the back end of the spectrum as other than us being apart, we don't particularly have any other compelling reasons for immigration to approve our visa earlier such has...
  • Nelson 9th June 2020 at 11:27 am on Partner Visa and PMV grants April and May 2020Hi Admin, Thanks for the response. Out of curiosity, is the information that you obtain regarding the granted cases from immigration or is it via the information given to you from users of this website. I do feel that it is rather concerning that if it were information plucked from immigration (probably meaning it has access to all grants and...

I read an article stated that if we got married before it's finalized, we can request to change PMV 300 to PV 309 with no additional fee, as it's of the same price. It didn't say how to actually do so. Then there's the article stating we need to withdraw,...
