We are in the same boat Aus_citizen! Applied for PMV August 11th, 2015 online through London embassy...wondering if we will be assigned a CO soon? I know everyone is saying no news is good news so I guess we'll just have to be patient

VISA GRANTED!!! After the last week of people getting theirs before the 10month mark, I wasn't surprised, but I sure am happy and relieved!

Applied Feb 10
CO given March 20th (approx- cant really remember) Lissa.
Medicals/ Police checks Aug 4th
Visa granted 23rd Oct.

So about 8 1/2 months! Fairly straight forward case (in my eyes) together over 3 years, no unexplained absences, lots of travelling together etc. Hopefully this gives people a little hope that they seem to be moving quickly - perhaps so they can enjoy their christmas. It's been a tough wait, but being a viewer and contributor in this forum has really made me feel hopeful and excited. Thanks guys and good luck to everyone!

Congrats on the approvals!
My partner and I are having a hard time with the concept of another 7+ months apart and are planning for him to come and stay here while we wait for his visa. We have applied for a PMV visa though & I understand he has to leave the country for it to be approved. Does anyone have any experience of how this works in practice? The idea at this stage is for him to come out on a tourist visa and then fly out of Aus for the processing of his PMV (assuming immigration are happy to communicate about this so we can ensure he is out when he needs to be?). Any advice or suggestions on this? Thanks in advance

You just need to be careful doing this as you'll need to prove to immigration that he's there as a tourist and not hanging out until he's approved for a permanent visa so he'd need a return ticket. Don't forget there is a 3 month time limit on a tourist visa. If they don't believe he's entering as a genuine tourist they could deport him and then he'd be banned from entering for 3 years! As far as I understand it they are quite good about letting you know that you need to leave for your visa to be granted if you email them to tell them You're entering the country.

Hi all,
I've been reading this thread for a few weeks after submitting my partner visa 309/100 application online on 7th October, 2015.
The waiting game begins but from what I can see, London are processing and granting visa's in about 8-10 months.....but I'll keep you posted!
Congratulations to those that have had their visa's granted and I'm hoping that I can join you all!

Watching with interest to get a better understanding of the wait.

I'm from the UK, wife is an Aussie (Dual passport) and our two children (under 2) are dual as well, UK plus Australian Citizens by descent (The dog doesn't count yet but he has started his injections!)

PV submitted on the 31 Aug 2015. No Case officer yet, so we wait...
