Just noticed on my ImmiAccount (and DoHA website) that the processing times for PMV 300 have been updated and are quicker times.

75% of apps in 12 months
90% of apps in 16 months

We have been seeing some very quick grants so far in 2017. Good luck to all

This is so interesting...
We applied on November 20th and also were asked to provide police checks and medical on December 12th

I, however, did not expect the reply so soon.
I know it doesnít mean anything, and if be honest I really donít mind to wait (as we are together live in a third country)

One strange thing I have noticed is that on the footer of the document from the case officer asking for the additional documents, it has contact details for the Berlin Embassy... but I am applying from the UK? Unless this is normal, but maybe Berlin are picking up some of the UK applications from the London embassy?
Either way very excited and relieved.
We too received a request for more information from the Berlin Embassy, despite applying in London. We received the request on December 18th 2017, having applied on August 21st - so just shy of 4 months.

We were in Australia visiting my partners family for Christmas when we received the request for further information, and were only given 14 days to respond. We had informed them we were away, so weren't expecting any correspondence during the month we were away. After some digging, we managed to get the email for the Berlin Embassy to request a bit longer. Our case officer replied, allowing us an extra week, which was great news as this allowed us to get back to the UK to deal with this.

However, there is one concern hanging over us - my partner's sponsor application is now showing as 'Approved' on our Immi Account for some reason, so the 'Add Documents' button has disappeared! I've hit my 60 document limit, so cannot upload any from my end. However, we have been assured by the Europe Service Centre we can email the requested documents over to the Berlin embassy email address we had previously found.

Hopefully they have received the further documents on that email address.

The information requested was for a specific three month period of our relationship (we were perhaps a bit light on evidence for this period, but managed to find some more), plus police clearance certificates for my partner for the UK and Australia. It was odd to me that we were only given 14 days to get these, when the Australia police certificate (according to the website) can take up to 15 days. This was over Christmas too, so getting this in the post wasn't guaranteed. Anyway, it's all worked out okay in terms of getting what we need and sending it over.

Will keep everyone updated. Fingers crossed for everyone reading this going through the partner visa process, it's certainly...stressful.

Good day (morning/evening/night) everyone!
Happy to share that we got our grant today! In super short time 6 weeks!

Really didn’t expected it so soon, and also didn’t expected to be processed by the London office (applied from Kazakhstan, Central Asia)

Cheers.

That's great, congrats! Funnily enough I applied on 19th August 2017 as well, and it was on the 21st December I was asked for the police check and medical assessment to be uploaded within 28 days. In hindsight I probably should have front loaded my application as well, I was being too cautious...

Wow, that is great. I recall seeing another post where someone was rude to you about applying quickly. Congrats! You did well!

I just replied and in the thread where person asked how to get their 309 quick... this person is going to apply in March and I suggested to try to apply earlier and the guy thought I was being sarcastic I guess... oops..

Crazy online communication
