I applied beginning of August. As I'm Swiss I can only stay in Australia 3 months at the time on a tourist visa and have to leave again. That's why I'm outside of Australia right now and he only granted it so I will not have to leave again, which is the nicest thing! Otherwise he would have granted it in March. I'm sure yours will come through very soon.

hi blubb. this is great news for you, congratulations!

i am very interested to know though why your CO was able to grant yours so soon? we applied a week before you, in london as well.
my partner is shortly arriving to australia on a tourist visa too, so i am interested to know if theres any way we can speed up the approval of the de facto visa as he will also face having to leave and return to aus as well.

many thanks!

Smile Partner visa app filed

Hello all,
I'm new to this forum. Great info so far!
We've lodged the application for Partner Migration Visa on Friday, 3rd May 2013. Haven't heard back from Embassy in London yet, but the money has been taken from our Australian account already. No email or mail of acknowledgement yet. We are expecting to receive a message to request the medical exam and police check, as they haven't been done yet.
They told me on the phone before that we should send in what we have and as soon as payment has been received, they will assign a case officer.
We have applied for the citizenship by descent for our son (8 months) and received an email after a couple of days to request payments in Sterling, as the same credit card that we used for the partner migration visa application, was refused for his application.
Weird ...

Anyway, official processing time is 8 to 9 months according to their hotline consultant. Is there anyone in this forum thread who has recently applied and got a quicker processing time?
We were told it would probably be straightforward, since we are married (although only 1 year) and have a child. But you never know ....

Would love to hear more from others who have recently logded their application in London.

Thanks all!

hey there.

we applied offshore in london on 15 august 2012 and the visa was granted on 22 april 2013. so that was 8 months and a week.
when we applied they said 9 months, then early in 2013 they said 8-9 months, so it ended up being closer to 8 luckily.

all the best.
