Congrats jesinaus thats a great turnaround time! I will be in the same boat whenever I get my approval in terms of resigning from work and needing to sell my flat - daunting!

Can I ask what are the basics of your situation in terms of length of time you have been with your partner etc? Also - did you submit medical and police check soon after the application was submitted?

Last question - but did your partner take long to submit their application once had the required reference number from yours?

Timeline

Thank you guys!
My partner and I have been in a de facto relationship for about 8 years and we have a 2-year-old son. Shared assets for several years, many travels, together with each others families as well.

I did submit police checks and medicals in advance, so I'm sure that helped move things along. Although I really didn't expect it to go this fast.

I was also granted a permanent visa sc 100 straight away. Corrected the timeline below accordingly.

Flying to Aus during waiting game

Hi everyone,

Ive a question hopefully you might assist with:

Im 3 months into the waiting game for my 309/100 Visa (London). My Australian wife has just been successful in a new job starting in Victoria (Aus), mid January 2018. Whilst im hopelessly optimistic that my visa may be awarded by then, im not sure where id stand in terms of going out there with her and our two sons (Aussie citizens). Essentially, provided i got a return flight so i could actually enter the country, and the usual 3 month tourist visa, plus update my immi account to inform them, what else should i do? Will doing this jeopardise / delay my visa app in any way? Obviously if my visa still isnt sorted at the end of the 3month tourist visa id return. If it is sorted whilst im in Aus, what do i do in terms of finalising the 309/100 if im already in Aus?

Ive already submitted my medical and P/check.

Hope this all makes senses and someone can shed light? Thanks.

If you're in Aus when they are ready to grant you the visa they will be able to see you're onshore and will email you asking you to go offshore so they can finalise your visa. You don't necessarily have to go back to the UK, you can do short hop to NZ or Bali for a week or 10 days. Let the case officer know before you depart when you are planning to depart and for how long you'll be away. Some people find that by the time they've got off the plane at the other end, they have a grant notification email in their inbox. Other people's take a few days.

Hi tijanaoc,

That all makes good sense to me and is very helpful. Especially the point about not needing to go back to the UK, just off shore for a bit. Thanks so much.

Does anybody know if its best to book a one way flight on a tourist visa in my situation, or should i book a return to UK on a tourist visa and just cancel that flight (NZ or Bali instead) if im awarded the 309/100 whilst there?

.... I just hope i at least have CO assigned come January!

309/100 application end June

Hi, we applied for my partnerís 309/100 at the end of June, just before the fees went up; have heard nothing since the acknowledgement. He did the medical and police report up front along with four 888 declarations and a lot of other evidence. I had expected that there would have been a rush of applications before the end of June but are other people experiencing this kind of slow progress? It would seem that some applications are being processed quite quickly, thanks.

Interesting to hear considering other people applying from the UK have been getting approvals in 2-3 months.
