I always think it best to let people make their own decisions.
I agree with you rich, different circumstances for different people! Everyone has their own way of planning their future! I wish luck to everyone

My CO is WP and I have to contact them with entry and exit dates for my upcoming trip to Australia. I have never had to contact my CO before so can anyone tell me what email I use? Is it [email protected] then with a subject line retained from the email they sent me with my CO details?

September applications are being approved now in the Madrid office. Know of two grants from there so far. We were given a timeframe of 12-14 months which turned out to be quite inaccurate.

Hi

We fly June 29th and that is the address I emailed. No response yet though I only sent it last Thursday. I included my TRN, name & DOB as well as my CO's name in the address bar.

I phoned the London helpline (0207) 420 3690 and they made a note and suggested I upload my flight booking to my immi account as well as email if I had space. I did do so.

We're travelling one way and I will enter Oz on a 457 visa. I know I will have to leave Oz for my spouse visa to be granted if I don't receive it beforehand. June 29th is coincidentally the 10 month anniversary of our application so I'm hoping we might get lucky and receive our grant before we fly.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
Stuart

So I sent them an email, I really hope they get back so I don't have to ring the embassy and let them know. It's really not convenient to have to ring them from Ireland.

I wish my visa was approved before I leave on 04/07 seeing as how Berlin is currently processing late October applications but that will never happen.

Btw it seems like London/UK has the longest processing times for low-risk partner visas, any ideas why? Short-staffed, largest number of offshore partner applications?? Really hope they start granting at 10 months, Berlin are already granting October, and USA, November. The London embassy is way behind - still in July grants.

I only hope they grant a large number in a short space of time. I can think of no logical reason why they are so far behind other countries. They give nothing away if you call / email as I've tried!

Just had a look on the immi website and from July 1st the offshore partner visa is increasing significantly again, they are making the cost of off and onshore applications the same:

Anyone thinking of applying may want to do so asap.
