Just discovered this forum. We applied for an offshore Partner visa 309/100 in early May. I'm from the UK. My husband is an eligible NZ citizen now based here. We had uploaded everything except the Medical which we were asked for in July. Haven't heard anything since. We were hoping to be in Australia by Christmas but it sounds like we may be waiting a while yet....

We also applied offshore from Ireland at the start of May. Obviously no news yet, we were hoping for news before Christmas but looking unlikely ☹️

Yes, I have applied from Ireland but it goes to London for processing.
How long have you been waiting?

Anyone heard of any 309/ 100 applications being approved recently? The unknown waiting is a nightmare!

No change on our end unfortunately.. Im praying it comes through right before we fly over to save ourselves a $1000 trip out of Oz for it to be granted....

Me and my partner are in a similar situation, after uploading the health check 4 months ago, haven't heard anything.

MrsMorrow28, i've been holding off on buying flights hoping to of heard something, but i'm thinking now we may have to enter with my partner on a tourist visa.
Have you applied for the tourist visa? did you have to let them know? or are you waiting in case you hear news on the decision?

Hi tnerts,

I am the same, I applied at the end of April and absolutely no change on immi account since then. I am expecting to be waiting at least another 4 months as from what I've seen the most recent grants (and there's not been many of them!) seem to be people who applied in December 2017.

I'm going to Australia on a six month tourist visa in November. I waited until the tourist visa was granted before informing anyone. I uploaded a letter, my flight details and visa grant to my 309 application and will update my address when I get to Australia. Then if they want to grant the 309 visa while I am there they will know they need to let me know to go offshore.

Also as far as I know from my research, if you get the visitor visa and your 309 visa is approved after that, before you travel, the 309 visa cancels out the tourist visa so you can enter on the 309 as originally planned. The opposite is also true though, so be cautious/prepared to withdraw the tourist visa application at the drop of a hat.

Saying that my tourist visa was approved in under 48 hours.

Hope you get some good news soon!

Thanks for your reply.
I'm starting to think the 6 month visa may not even be long enough. The 600 tourist visa is usually 6 months but i think we can get a 12 month one.
Does the visa time period only start when you enter the country? i think that's right, not when you actually apply for it.
Really just sucks not knowing how long it will be, i wouldn't mind it they just definitively said 12 months.
