Congratulations! My partner has had to return to Australia before we have the chance to get my visa approval, so I’m desperate to hear back as soon as possible.

Where are you moving to in Australia?

I remain perplexed by the apparent ‘we deal with applications in the order in which they are received’ official message when there are people posting on here who applied a good 2-3 months after you and heard back before you did.

Many thanks.

We are moving to Sydney.

I think that I read in a guide done by a Migration Agent that they “triage” new applications and the standard of application impacts how fast they are processed. I was a bit slow getting my sponsor piece uploaded so perhaps I was put in the “slow” pile.

Hopefully you’re in the home stretch now.

Oh that’s interesting to hear, not something I’ve come across often reading on this and other forums but I suppose it makes sense!

We submitted everything including police checks and sponsor documents/form at the same time, and certainly took a couple months putting together as thorough an application as possible so here’s hoping it’s seen as of a high standard.

Hi All, I just wanted to ask how the department communicates with you all, do you get emails on your linked email account or do you have to check your immi account for contact?
I also notice on my partners application on his immi account it says form submitted, but on my account for the sponsor application it says received. Is this normal? do others have this, I was just worried I had not submitted my part of the application properly and just wondered why mine says submitted and his says received.
I guess I am just worried about the whole application process.
Congrats to all who have their visas approved, how exciting!
Thanks

MJL4 my application is the same where my part (as the applicant) says received but my partner’s bit (as the sponsor) has said submitted ever since start of November when we uploaded everything.

Received the email today that my 309/100 visa has been approved!

Submitted the application on November 6th 2017 so that's just a little bit over 2 months processing time.

Applied in the UK so through the London embassy, and submitted my police check and medical ASAP after the application was sent in. My partner (the sponsor) also submitted her part of the application within 1-2 weeks after I submitted mine.

I met my Australian partner when we were both in Fiji back in February 2014, and she moved to Scotland a couple months later on an ancestry visa and has been here since so we've been together around 3.5 years so thankfully I have gone straight to the permanent residency visa.

Happy to answer any questions anyone has about the application process, I have received so much help on this forum so thank you everyone.
