We didn't use an agent.

Congrats to GrizzlyHarvey and tijanaoc! I see London is still quite quick!

Thanks for updating the list, tijanaoc. I'm busy with a newborn, so I'm not around as much as I used to...

Hey guys,

Anyone else applied in August on this thread? Only been approx. 2,5 months since we applied, so not exactly expecting to hear anything yet.

Our case should be pretty straight forward I think. We've been in a de facto relationship for over 8 years and have a 2-year-old son together, who already has his Aussie citizenship. Also shared assets etc.
Factors that may cause delay with our application is that my partner, who is the sponsor, was born outside Australia and was granted citizenship by decent (already at 6 months old though). He also has a dual citizenship and has done the military service abroad (cumpulsory here in Finland). Hopefully it won't slow things down too much.

Hi Jesinaus,

I applied in August as well, not heard anything either (as expected). We have been in a de facto relationship since May 2016, dating since November 2015... and a relatively straight forward case too. We haven't been together as long as you and your partner, so it will be interesting to see if that has any implications on processing times.

Hi Jesinaus and JessL89,

I too applied in August. Im British, married this year to my partner of 7 years. My wife is Australian born and we have two young sons, both have Aussie citizenship, one by descent (born London), other was born in Aus last year. Shared assets and all the usual shared financial obligations / lifestyle stuff you'd expect in this set up. So id like to think we're straight forward too.

Ive submitted my PCC and medical checks ( (in the hope of a swiftish processing) with the rest of the online app back in Aug. No agent.

No contact at all as yet either but as you say, 2.5months is still early days i guess.

Fingers crossed for us all.

Smile Partner visa sos

Hi there,

If anyone was like me and feels very overwhelmed with the whole visa application then please know you are not the only one. I actually got through the process and my partner visa 309 was issued in just 6weeks from offshore (UK). I then created a blog to help others going through the same process as I felt this was lacking and I desperately needed reassurance.
Please check it out, google partnervisasos

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to me on there.
I promise there is an end to it and have a bottle of champagne waiting for your approval!

Cheers,
Cayli

Visa granted!

Hi all!
I just received an e-mail this morning saying my visa has been granted in just about 3 months!!!

I'm very excited, but a bit nervous now, since all of it will now become a reality. Now it's time to start the process of resigning from work, selling our apartment etc etc..

Good luck to the rest of you!!
