Hiya, just wanted to see if anyone else has been granted a visa recently? I applied in August and have heard nothing, and wanting to head over to Aus in February but I am unsure if I should book my flights yet. The anticipation and waiting is not so fun! Any one have any suggestions?

I applied in August too and haven't heard anything either.. although I have heard of one that applied in August as well, that has been granted already, so fingers crossed for us.

Paulsyd - what are the basics of your application in terms of how long you've been with your Oz partner, where in Oz you are intending to move to etc? I'm getting the impression that applications are clearly not being processed in the order in which they are received but rather to what extent they meet certain criteria.

Otherwise how are there people who have applied through the London embassy in 2017 for a 309/100 visa and been approved in some cases within 2-3 months?

The DIBP website says up to 75% of 309's are processed in 11 months. That means theoretically some could be processed immediately, and others wait the full 11 months (within the 75% that is). There are many factors involved, and one would think the queue is based on when an application was lodged, but that is clearly not the case. Apparently 'decision ready' applications were once processed sooner, but according to the chatter here, that is not necessarily the case anymore. Immigration in any country is not subject or governed to what we think is fair. It's a waiting game for all of us.

Iím the Aussie citizen (since 2006) with my Irish partner since 2011 and de facto since 2013. Plenty of evidence uploaded and everything is in order. Moving back to Sydney. Havenít even been asked for additional information. To me it should be a relatively straight forward case I would have thought. Think I just have to have patience!

Hi I applied for my 309 in September and heard nothing either. My Aussie Mrs and I have been together 9 years, have two children who are Aussie citizens and they have been living in Australia now for 3 weeks without me. Its hard playing the waiting game.

Yup, 4 months to the day. I have this evening sent off Australian Police check. And about to do UK checks for my partner and I (the applicant).
Luckily he should be able to book in a health assessment really quickly too. Hopefully this means it will all be approved soon?!
