A mate told me that immig told him the waiting time for a USA visa application could now be up to 4 years. Surely this is not true? He lodged fiance visa about 18 months ago. Pretty standard application he’s been here heaps. I’m outta date on all this stuff nowadays. Thanks!

The whole process PMV - 820 - 801 is around the 4 - 5 year mark (length of relationship plays a factor to length of grant time here). Longer if you include citizenship.

PMV only is less if he's been waiting 18 months I'd be inclined to complain as 90% of applications are finalised within 16 months.

It seems a bit odd.

I don't follow the USA thread closely but I thought they were around 9 months processing time.

18 months seems a long time though for the USA. Have they spent longer than 12 months in a high risk country?

Our PMV would have been granted around 9 months, but we then switched to a 309 which took it to 12 months. But around 9 to 12 months seems to be average atm.

It is never a good idea to take advice from a immi employee, but if a PMV application has not been processed after 18 months - it will be time to be asking why.

The 4 year statement is indeed very strange Chicken, but as above it is about the time line from a PMV application to a PR grant.
