My partner visa was granted! I received the permanent (100) visa right away as my partner and I have been together for more than 3 years. We are going out to celebrate tonight with a nice bottle of Australian red we've been saving for the occasion
Here is how it all went down..
March 25th, 2014- Submitted Application Online
2 months later- Received the stock standard email checklist requesting medicals, police checks which I then submitted one week later
5 months later- Received an email from my case officer saying a decision would likely be made sometime in Oct/ Nov
Visa 100 Granted 6 months after applying
My case officer was very helpful and professional which I am so grateful for. Thanks so much to everyone on this forum for all of your help and support. I definitely could not have done it without you!
