Good news and the last couple of months of anxiety and uncertainty is now a thing of the past! Yaaahhhoooooo.... Fiancee's visa approved today...

Please find attached letter of decision in relation to your application.
The original letter will be forwarded to AVAC Bali via their Jakarta office
this afternoon. You may be able to collect them early next week.

There is no need for you to submit your passport for visa evidencing
process as we now have a label-free arrangement in place as of 1 July 2012.
Please read the notification attached below for detailed information.

The email was signed off by Christy.

Thanks everyone on this thread being so supportive and also giving great advice. Thanks so much Baligirl, Madura for your support and good luck to everyone still waiting... As Baligirl said, make sure there is contact all the time with CO if possible... not to the extent of hassling them, but to keep you updated with the status of the application.... Good luck everyone!

Hi everyone,

My Fiance applied for her PMV only last week and received confirmation it had arrived in Jakarta and also received a letter with her ID number to get the medical. We are both aware that we possibly have a long time to wait for approval so we are hoping we can apply for a tourist visa for her to come here for three months in January 2013.

I have read almost every post in this thread and it is just bizzare how there are so many differences in the processes everyone has to go through.

I see that some people get tourist visa applications refused and some get theirs approved.

My question is.....If we apply for a tourist visa should we just apply along the lines of her coming for a holiday and not mention we have applied for the PMV?? (I say this because from what I have read if we apply for the tourist visa before she has been assigned a CO then maybe the PMV application will not have any impact on the tourist application as it has for some of you)

Or...

Do you think it is better to be completely honest and advise that we have applied for the PMV however the tourist visa is strictly for a holiday and sightseeing etc.???

At the time we apply for the tourist visa her medicals will have been done and I have heard that if they know you have applied for a PMV and a CO has not looked into the medical side of things and ticked that off then the applicant can be seen a risk and a tourist visa refused (again bizzare)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi everyone I got great news too. My wife got her temporary partner visa 309 approved today after 4 months and 7 days. It's such a relief as I was expecting it to take longer given the long time people here have experienced lately.

Moose, I'm not sure if a PMV is viewed differently when applying for tourist visa, but on my wife's tourist application she mentioned that a temporary partner visa was in process.

Congratulations Jagzone and thanks very much for the feedback.

I agree that it is better not to hide the fact we have already applied for the PMV, Just wanted to hear what other people had done.

Yeah lovesbaliii it was a surprise to me as I thought the increased boat people coming over had a strain on the immigration budget, reducing the quotas of granted visas.

We didn't use an agent, just went to Avac in Jakarta ourselves and made sure all docs in the checklist were there. The following week my wife got the HAP letter (stated 12 months processing) and did her medicals and after that the waiting game began.

Up until getting assigned a CO, we didn't know how long this was going to take. We'd email the embassy once a month asking if there was anything else needed and we'd either get a canned response or one that said wait for a CO.

We made some plans in Aus, so I had to bring my wife another way while waiting for her temporary, so we applied for a tourist visa and got granted 6 months single entry.

After 4 months I called the embassy asking for an update about my wife's case. The man I spoke to said it was waiting in the queue (as there is a queue) to be processed and he wasn't sure when we'd get a CO. The following day we get assigned a CO and it was the first time we could ask about our case. The CO advised us the processing could take up to take but was aiming for 7 months as ours was submitted before July 2012.

A week later she gets the temporary visa. Perhaps they have more visas available to grant now, or the CO saw our case being straightforward.

I hope everyone else will be quick like ours too from now on. It's really tough being without your partner or being able to plan for the future while the decision is pending.

My fiance just got her visa granted!!! woooohooo!

Date submitted: 15 May 2012
Date granted: 28 Nov 2012

Soooo happy, and the best part is I'm flying to Bali on Friday for a holiday and she's going to fly down and meet me there. The purpose of the holiday was to catch up (and buy some wedding rings!) but it looks like we'll be talking about dates as to when she wants to come out to Aus.

I think she wants to spend Christmas with her family, but she might change her mind now
