Spouse Visa high risk processing times

Hi All

Im new to this forum and have read the many posts from everyone and they really helped when I was preparing my partner visa (820/801) application.

I find the visa timeline thread to be encouraging but I feel some of the timelines would be better split up into high risk and low risk threads. When I read how quickly some of the low risk applications were processed ( 1 week was the quickest I saw) I start to get really discouraged.

If you have recently applied or have been approved for a spouse/partner visa and you are from a high risk country please feel free to share your timeline, experiences or just general words of encouragement.

Heres mine:
Date of application: 1 April 2011
Nationality: Zimbabwean
Visa type: 820/801
Offshore/onshore: Onshore, Sydney
Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes 6 April 2011
Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes 6 April 2011
Date CO assigned: Not yet
Date Visa granted: Not yet
