Hey guys, hope you’ll doing well. I was wondering how long does it take to get a reply back once you have submitted the requested documents. We’ve applied for the visa in December 2019, got a RFI on the 12th of May 2021 and submitted that on the 4th of June
My RFI's were submitted, May 19th, 2021, and my 100 was granted June 18th.

There is no certain way of knowing how long they might take to reply after RFI. For some it takes just a day, and for some even months. For me, it took 3 months from the time i submitted all documents requested in RFI.

Yes, I can definitely relate to you. I haven't seen my partner for 2 years now as well, and we're currently processing our 309 visa. We are yet to submit our second RFI once my partner's Japan Police clearance arrives in approximately 2 months. The waiting game is the hardest as along the way, you start to have so many questions and doubts but all I can say to you is that, hang in there, give it more time and have more patience. Stay positive and let's hope you'll get the golden ticket soon :)

Thank you 😢 its just so difficult i actually have medical conditions and have supplied all proof for it yet they dont seem to give importance to the file. 3 months back C/O was responding quick and now its just dead silent. Everything they needed has been provided i just dont understand why there hasnt been any response. His police check also took over month especially the one from AUS. My friends also had the same timline as us and their grant has already arrived. Dehli office seems to take for ever fml

How long has it been, when did you apply for the 309?

The COVID pandemic has been one major reason for some of the long delays, with much fewer people getting grants.

I saw a couple of 309 grants from India last month, taking 24 and 31 months.

It looks like most grants are taking 3 months to happen
Not necessarily:

The last 12 subclass 309s that I have seen took:

July 2021 grants: (average 13.6 months)
  1. 9.5 months
  2. 31 months
  3. 5 months
  4. 1.5 months
  5. 19 months
  6. 16 months
June 2021 grants: (average 2.3 months)
  1. 1 month
  2. 3 months
  3. 3 months
  4. 9 days
  5. 3 months
  6. 3.5 months
The pressure to grant a certain number of visas quickly, ended on 30 June 2021, the end of the financial year.

In previous years the average has been around 11 months.

You will most likely get a grant after 1 year of application that is the minimum time wait.
So your looking at a possible grant after August 2021.
January 2021 is when almost all cases were allocated C/O. Myself n hubby had also. January - April they were really on top on things now they have slowed down alot many people got granted between that time that had their decision ready files as well as being in the system for almost a year.
I havent seen my partner since jan 2019 :-( its been 2.5 years for me.
