Hey all,

My partner applied on 6th September 2014 online to the London embassy for a 309/100 partner visa. He's UK, I'm an Aussie citizen. We got our CO about a week after we applied stating that the new wait time is 10-14 months. So lonngggg!!!!!! Hopefully its closer to the 10 month mark as we have been living out of Australia since February 2013 and I am missing my family and OZ like crazy and just want to go home! Anyway, our CO said not to even think about getting his medical done until after the 6th March 2015! Which means we are settling in for a long wait. Just wanted to keep in touch with others who are waiting for their visa too.

Take care x

Oh, great. We applied 2 days after you (French citizen married to an Australian, application online). We haven't received any response regarding the CO and my husband already did the medical which cost 200€ . The application form actually said when we applied that we should get the medicals done, and it provided a link with the number to call to arrange the appointment...so I'm confused now. I really hope he doesn't have to redo it. We were hoping to be back by March so I could do my masters degree but I guess we have to reassess our plans now. Should we have applied through Madrid instead?

Hey, you applied to the London office? Yeah we got our CO (initials SD) on the 17th Sep (11 days after we applied online). They quote "as current processing times for partner migration applications at this office is 10-14 months, we ask that you obtain health and character checks after 6th March 2015." Which means at least a 6 month wait til they look at everything. I really hope we don't have to wait 14 months. It's crazy that application fees have gone up and so have waiting times! Oh well.

Hey. I had DP. I just did exactly what the initial email said. Never contacted him again (just sent the police checks in the post as requested & got them back within a few days with an acknowledgment).
Got my visa exactly within the set time frame (8.5 months, time given was 8-9 months).

We applied 10 days before you and we've heard nothing back - did you apply online or by paper? we did it online and my partner is French.
