Greetings to every member in this forum.
I applied for visa 309 and have finished with my medicals and police clearance but got this automated message below from Department of Home Affairs.

We are writing to inform you that your application for partner visa is in progress. Your application takes time to process as we complete a number a number of thorough checks.

since a week that i got that letter i haven't heard from them, please can someone tell me what to do or if there's any problem. Thanks, waiting for your respond.
That's a routine message. So you wait , if they need something they'll get InTouch , meanwhile, do update your account of photos, visits, and any other development.

Jambo MKenya,
No news on my end. I was talking to a couple who applied for 309/100 in June 2019 and the lady just got her visa last week.
That's right after I applied🤫.
Hope I'll hear from immigration sooner since I responded to the RFI.
Still good to know Nairobi is issuing visas 😊

Partner visa 309

No, it does not take too much time for getting Australia Partner 309 visa. You can easily acquire this visa, provided you must satisfy its points test and furnish the entire needed documents related to your education, skilled professional experience, spouse documents, English language proficiency documents and so on. Pursuant to this, a character federal police certificate should be provided which ensures that you do not have any criminal records in the past years. It generally checks criminality records of aspiring applicants who are 18 years or older than 18 years old.
