Great news <img src="http://www.australiaforum.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

I am hoping to do the same and fly out at the end of October, but I'm only planning on getting a 6 month visa. Can I ask what evidence you uploaded on the 600 tourist visa? I have read you need to provide financial evidence/letters of invitation etc., but can't see the option on the upload screen for this (only passport), so not sure if it applies to UK residents?!

Really encouraging to hear they have approved a 12 month tourist visa for an offshore applicant. I needlessly stress about everything lol.

It didn’t really show those things for me either. I uploaded my passport in the travel document bit and then in the recommended section I added evidence of my partner’s funds (as she’s mostly paying) and then I added my own statement and my partner’s invitation letter.

Hi

Thanks so much for a sharing. I will be getting the ball rolling with the same next payday!

Have an amazing time in Aus and I hope you get some news on your partner visa soon.

Heya,

This is my first post on the forum!

My 309/100 visa application was lodged at the start of July, from London. I was devastated when the global processing times shot up, and having had the immediate realisation that I'd missed the end of the spate of fast-tracked applications occurring just weeks to months before...

I will definitely keep in touch if, and when, any progression happens my end!

Keeping my fingers tightly crossed until then...!

Hi - my PMV 300 was granted on 31 Aug. It was lodged in December 17 and medical & police checks uploaded in March 18 - they weren’t requested, we made the decision to frontload to hopefully process quicker. It was lodged off shore from the U.K. Good luck to all those waiting and hope gives everyone hope that we finally have movement in the U.K.!

Hi, did you have any contact from a Case Officer? Also, did your status change along the way? Heard so many different stories of requests from CO and some where the status didn't change at all, then magically an e-mail arrives with good news! Only month 5 of waiting here but heard nothing and no status change at all

No contact whatsoever over the 8.5 months. It was literally an email in my inbox.

Hello! Anyone done an offshore partner visa from Ireland? Wondering if there is any difference in wait times?
