Sorry to burst your bubble there - I'm 99% sure mine showed the same though. I remember thinking the same thing at the time.

Yes the referral letter on immi said 100 (I think that's a general letter for all). However, on our request email it does say 309.

My medical referral said 100 too. Not sure if they will acknowledge our 3.5 year (at time of application) relationship as we only lived together for the last 12 months of that. Before it was long-distance.

Letter asking me to leave Australia did not state either subclass. Only said "migration visa". Will see if we get the 100 once I leave Australia in late Feb.

Also the referral letter is generated pretty much right away once you've submitted and paid the visa application. I was able to download it from day 1. It's highly unlikely that someone had a quick look to decide if we qualify for the 100 right away.

Cool, thanks! We qualify for the 100 anyway - but as Uhtred says - it makes sense to have 100 on the letter as that it the end result requiring the health check i guess!

We ended up having contact from CO the day after we did the medical anyway, asking for Police check and an additional document. Given 28 days to provide, then the wait begins again!

Officially 12-14 months (and that's what you should plan with to not be disappointed), but recently there have been a number of cases were visas have been granted within 4-6 months. However, that depends on how convincing your application is and, as we learned recently, how lucky you are with the CO assignment. Some COs are apparently quite quick in processing their work load, some actually do take close to a year.

Thankyou so much for the information... your advice about preparing for the longer time frame is good. I guess patience will be the key!

Better to mentally prepare for a longer wait and then be surprised by a shorter processing time than the other way around

And definitely try not to get disheartened when you go onto forums and see others getting grants or contact even if they've applied after you.

Whilst they work applications in order, we don't know why people are contacted at different times etc.

Just got to go with the flow.
