There was an issue with my dual citizenship that needed to be rectified, but I think since that was raised, to resolving was about a week and a half - from what I understand. For us, once we were in touch with a CO, they were extremely helpful and understanding.

I wish you guys all the luck in the world, and thanks for letting me vent - it does help
Congratulations! Good things come to those who wait!

Also granted!!

Hi All,

My partners 309 visa was granted today!! Super excited. We will now be moving there in July this year!!

We applied on the 19th of Jan, so just under 4 months... I am sooo happy. I had started to get my hopes up a little when I saw lots of other people getting theirs granted quickly on here, it is so nice to be able to relax now.

Good luck to everyone still out there waiting.... I think as long as you have kept your application clear and not over whelming it helps the case officer a lot. My partner also had the police check and medicals completed before we were asked for them.

It was so nice to have this forum as a place to communicated with people who are going through the exact same thing as you!!

Cheers

Visa Granted

Hi All,
I have found this forum very useful during my 309 application and have decided to post for the first time.
Visa submitted on the 28th Jan 2016, police checks completed mid Feb. Medical booked for early march then postponed because of a slipped disc. We received our first correspondence, a letter from our case officer Lissa on the 25th of April asking for me to complete my medical within 21 days (which was OK because it was rearranged for 3 days later). This letter reiterated to us that the waiting time at the London Embassy was AT LEAST 10-14 months. Whilst being happy that we had heard back from our case officer we were a little downhearted as we hoped we might get the visa a bit sooner than 10 months after application.
Medical completed 27th April 2016, we also attached a few more documents of evidence as we had moved house recently and wanted to add extra proof.
Knowing the expected time-frame I was not expecting to hear back from Lissa anytime soon, however, on the 5 May 2016 just over 3 months after submitting the application and 10 days after receiving a letter saying we were due to wait at least another 7 months...... VISA GRANTED.

Just wanted to tell my story in the hope that it can help someone and thank everyone on here for helping us!

After applying for my visa on the 7th October, I had my medical on the 12th May and my Police Certificate arrived yesterday, 18th May which I uploaded to my immi account. Final stage of waiting. I hope soon that I can post my visa has been granted!

Visa Granted!!!

Hi everyone,

I have been a very active reader of this forum and found quite a lot of useful information around. So now I decided to contribute and tell a bit of my story...

My wife is Australian and I am Brazilian, we have been together for the last 5.5 years, married for 1 and living together for the last 2 years. We both live and work in London and we decided to apply for the 309/100 visa.

Date of Lodgment: 06/02/2016
CO assigned: 26/04/2016
Police Certificate: 27/04/2016
Medical Check: 06/05/2016
Visa Granted: 17/05/2016
Intended first entry: early 2017

The email telling us that a CO had been assigned, also stated that the waiting time would be AT LEAST 10-14 months from the start of our application, so we were not expecting to hear anything anytime soon, which was also the reason why we applied early this year. But to our surprise, 3 months and 10 days after lodging and less than a month after having a CO, we have received the visa. Both the 309 and 100 came at the same time. We are over the moon now, with thousands of different plans to ensure a smooth transition from UK to AUS

It seems to do that. Very quiet or a flurry of grants. Never a steady trickle.
