Hi Guys,

I have been following this forum with regards to the timeline for Subclass 309/100 process in London. I will send you my timeline as I have been waiting for almost 8 months.

23/ October /2018 - Subclass 308/100 Application Lodged Philippines(No agent)
23/March/2019 - S56 Additional information requested
26/March/2019- Other documents provided and
31/May/2019 -last document of Japanese Clearance Provided.

Emailed and Called but just general question and CO told me 75% of application process for 13 months and 90% of Application process for 19months

My processing timeline at the moment is 13months to 19months and still RECIEVED STATUS. Itís really nerve breaking waiting for the grant. Will I think we just hope for the best result. 2 year in defacto. Been married for a year and have a year old baby.

Has anyone still waiting like me can you please enhance and give me positive feedback with your timeline in waiting your Partner Visa Subclass 309/100.

All the Best for us God Bless

Regards
May

I just don't want to get my hopes up if it will be 9-12 months.

Thanks in advance!
I wonder if you could tell me if my future wife from Russia could apply to UK office as he would be spending many months with me in UK on a tourist visa ? Also, as I think the offshore partner visa is done wholly online , why is any office involved as decision about Grant taken in OZ I think ?
thanking you

You can't request a specific embassy, once it was designated purely from country of passport but now can go to others as well.
I can't work out what you are asking in the second part but all partner visas are online.

Sadly I will have to go though the visa process again after doing it in 2014 and with
the marriage failing and subject to the 5 year rule . At that time the printed out papers and documents were taken to the Russian embassy in Moscow in our case . Can you
confirm that it is now all done electronically online and no need to take anything to the Embassy which is now in Serbia for Russian applicants I think? So is everything uploaded to the immigration site including skype and email contact and is the now huge visa fee of over $7000 paid to embassy in OZ and can it be done bank to bank by B pay to avoid the obnoxious debit and credit card charge ?
thanking you and hope you can kindly respond . The thought of going through it all again is scary and especially the stress of it as an "oldie" ! ( smile )

You can pay by:
  • credit card (most card companies are 1.32% to cover the card cost)
  • PayPal (Paypal charges are 1%)
  • UnionPay (They charge 1.9%)
  • BPAY (Banks dont charge anything, but can take up to 3 days)
)
The charges vary depending on how much those companies take from the amount you pay, before Immigration get the balance.

To use BPAY you must:
  • have an Australian bank account
  • be registered with the telephone or internet banking service of your bank

surprisingly quick at London office as presumably a very small workload there as more
applications lodged in other countries .
