Hi guys, this is my first post here and we've just lodged a partner visa (309/100) application on 29th Jan 16. I'm an Aus citizen by birth with dual Brit/Aus nationality and my wife is German.

We're hoping for a sub class 100 visa to be issued straight off as we've been together for over 14 years, I'll keep this thread updated with our progress as we go!

I just don't want to get my hopes up if it will be 9-12 months.

Thanks in advance!
Hi, I've been chasing this query for a while now myself.
I spoke to London this morning and they have confirmed the processing time is 10 - 14 months. They have also told me the 5 months as advertised on the site is incorrect, they are aware this is still on the website and they've had a load of complaints about this misleading information.....

Good luck. I'm at the 5 month mark now.....

Has anyone considered going over on a tourist visa whilst waiting for their 309 to come through?

Hi Backtoback,

I applied for a 309 in November and I'm going over on an evisitor visa next month and can try to help if you have a question? Or do you mean a different tourist visa? I know there is a 600 visitor visa (I think), and that one is a bit more complex...

Hi All,

This is my first post but I have been lurking on here for a while reading your stories & advice.

This afternoon I was delighted to receive the grant of my 309/100 visas (granted at the same time).

I applied online on 24 June 2015 & was granted the visas on 25 Feb 2016(8 months & 1 day).

For background, I am a UK citizen, married to my Australian wife for just under 4 years at date of application & with 2 (UK/Aus dual citizen)children. Therefore our case was relatively non-complex but still it is a massive relief to have finally got the grant!

I received my first contact from my caseworker (WP) on 3rd Sept requesting additional info & then another email on 21st Dec requesting police background & medical checks. These were completed by early January & that was the last I heard from my caseworker until today!

Best of luck to everyone else still in the queue but hopefully a positive outcome is in sight.
