Is anyone waiting for 309/100 spouse visa from Australian High Commission, Islamabad, Pakistan, in this forum?
Yes, I'm. What's your timeline? When did you apply?

Hello everyone.. I recently review some of the posts for the spouse visa from Pakistan... We have applied offshore spouse visa in 1st week of Feb 2014 online.. After completing our 12 weeks, called Australian high commission in Pakistan to check the routine progress and came to know that since we guys have applied online the High Commission is still understanding the online system and probably have to wait more than the ones who have applied paper based...

Like I have never heard such kind of comments in recent years that the system is launched without prior trainings.. Anyways cant except any thing good from these guys...

Any one of you experience the same or similar ? Or any updates for your spouse visas?

Cheers.

I had submitted spouse application of my wife in end of Feb 2014 via online process, she is in Pak.

CO not assigned yet. Sent an email to ask about the processing but got the standard reply that it could take up to 12 months.

Edit: I'm planning to call my wife on a visit visa as we are not sure how long spouse visa would take.

Unfortunately Pakistan is usually 18-24 months because of external security checks, so you may be in for quite a long wait. :(

Unfortunately there's no set time for the external checks... sometimes they don't send them out until six months after application. It would be very, very uncommon (pretty much unheard of) for security checks for Pakistan to come back this quickly.

Yes, we applied for 309 spouse visa, paper based, from Islamabad, Pakistan. They said 12 months and that is how long it took.

If I may ask, where did you find the figure of 18-24 months?

From what we've seen it take for Pakistani applicants on this board.

Unfortunately if your visitor visa is rejected there's really nothing you can do but wait. How are you applying for a PMV if you've already applied for a spouse visa, though? You can't apply for a PMV if you're already married.

Why was your spouse visa rejected? Are you and your partner not legally married or....?
