yeah missus is here with me, we met when i was on a whv in perth 2012. its been a long road with one wasted application and about $10k i'll never see again. i moved back to perth in jan 2014 on a tourist visa so we could be together, gave up me job in the ifsc. then we arrived into ireland in june ,missus got a whv for here. it expires in june this year and she can no longer work but she's gonna stay here until we get the visa granted, bearing in mind we have to leave and re-enter to activate her tourist visa but we'll use it as an excuse for summer holiers

sorry to hear youre seperated, we had to do the long distance thing from april 2013 to jan 2014, although she did come to ireland twice for a month both times during the year. its a tough long road this viza jazz to be sure but worth it in the end no doubt

Wow, that's serious money Niall. I met my lovely boy when I was at the end of my WHV and I had to come back to Ireland without him for a while. He came here then, as he has an Irish passport, but couldn't get decent work so went home to his former job a few months ago. We got engaged when he was here, and applied for the Prospective Spouse Visa 3 months ago now, and we thought it would be about 5 months, but I guess we'll be waiting a looong time.

We might even have to rearrange our wedding, which is booked for Melbourne in mid-November, but at least not much has been organised and we're not the type of couple that's into a flashy best-day-of-my-life kind of wedding anyway. But wow, so much time without him, I'm not sure about that, dreading it. With our inflexible jobs, it's not gonna be easy for us to meet for any decent chunk of time in the meantime.

Emailed London, yes, good plan!

Oh, but back to an earlier question - I applied online 3 months ago and haven't been contacted by anyone, or assigned a CO. The only communication has been the automatic letter saying the application has been received.

Is this very unusual? Everyone else seems to have a CO assigned quickly.

have you checked spam folders etc, no harm ringing or mailing them. No cause for alarm though, I heard back within 3 weeks to say everything is fine but last year I heard back within 4 weeks asking for more docs and info etc in what was a failed app. So dont start panicking or anything, no harm ringing or mailing. i rang them a few weeks ago and spoke to a lady after holding for about 30 minutes but she was very polite and helpful. just give her your transaction ref number and they should look into it for you

My 300 PMV was granted last week and I entered Aus yesterday
So that was just over 8 1/2 months.
Have been in Aus for the last couple of months on a tourist visa and case officer (WP) was very helpful arranging grant whilst I left the country for a few days.
3 months until our wedding then start over with the application for the 820/801
Good luck to those waiting...

Congrats on your PMV 300. That's me just over 4 months since lodged, hopefully another 5 months is all I've to wait.

Congrats on your grant. We have WP too for our PMV so it is nice to see they are granting them.

We are five months this Thursday. Hopefully only 5 more months.

Hey all, here's hoping the July application grants start this week. I applied in September which had the 10-14 month processing time (which started on August 1? Correct me if I'm wrong). Theoretically, because June applications were granted in March, July applications should be granted in April. Does this mean that visas just won't be processed at all in May? Because the 10-14 processing time starting after August means the earliest these applicants would get their visa is June. Sorry for the long-winded post, been waiting almost 7 months and am just wondering about immi's logic about skipping an entire month (or 5, if they decide to not grant til 14 months).

I've been wondering about this too! I'm hoping they just carry on at current pace!

If immigration find themselves with nothing to do in May I don't mind if they spend time approving my application. 😃😃😃
