Please check below and make sure your info is correct (and complete as you want it to be - if I don't have an exact date you applied and you'd like to keep it that way for privacy reasons, that's absolutely fine!)

Also, if you're on this list and you did NOT apply for a 300 (Prospective Marriage Visa) or a 309, let me know and I'll take you off the list.

And if anyone would like to be added - just say so and tell me your CO's initials (if you know), your application date, whether you applied for a 309 or a 300, and whether you applied online or via paper. Thanks!

Also, please note: the date format for this thread is the United States date format, so 4/9/2014, for example, is April 9, NOT September 4.

The good things we can deduce from this list are that very few people are up to six months' wait (with the exception of cheesy. :(). So the ~5 month average PMV processing time from DC still *appears* to be mostly holding steady. Hopefully we'll start seeing some grants soon before these five monthers turn into six monthers!

My guess is the slowing of the grants is due to people being on vacation and/or the Australian election and we might see some grants coming soon.

What else can we deduce? Well, ML is one busy woman! :p Haha.

Oh wow, okay. You aren't at the top of ML's list, bjch. There's someone who's been waiting a couple weeks longer than you that turned out to be on a 309 too so I took them off the list. Man... so I guess we're actually ML's longest PMV waiters, MrandMrs! I hope that means we're up soon!

I simply meant that previously I had us down as having waited 4 months and 2 weeks.. it's now been 4 months and three weeks. It's been a week since I posted this thread originally. :)

Ok today is the 5 month marker and nothing .....:( So it looks like the wedding date we had planned can't happen.

So as I understand I can't go to Aus on ETA Tourist Visa for my wedding date because I am in the process of the PMV?

Has anyone had any news or movement ? I would think someone would have some inside information as big as this forum is as to what is going on in Washington these days that has so many of us in limbo.

When is your planned wedding date? You can go to Australia on an ETA however if you get married before the PMV is granted I think you will have to convert your application to a spouse visa. That will probably complicate things further.

Yes, exactly right. MrandMrs, if you marry before it's granted you'll have to convert your application to a spouse visa and they'll be looking for the evidence that visa requires (so more intense than the PMV). It can also delay things.

Nope, no inside info. :( Sorry - wish I had some!

I was going to say maybe we should start a new thread, but we have so many DC-specific threads on the forum now I think maybe adding them to this thread would just be better. ;) So yes - I'll start a 309 section on my first post in this thread. It's impossible to tell with some of the new Timelines what visa people applied for, though, so - anyone with a 309, let me know and I'll add you to the list!
