I can't believe it, I just received the 100 grant today, only 2 months after supplying evidence for the second stage of the partner visa! Here is my timeline:

Applied for 309/100 from the US: April 2017
Received 309 grant: March 2018
Moved to Australia: May 2018
Submitted additional evidence for the 100: April 2019
Received 100 grant: June 2019

So the whole process from start to finish for me was 26 months. My partner and I were engaged when we applied but got married in August 2017 and at that point had been in a relationship for nearly 5 years.

When submitting additional evidence for phase 2 of the partner visa, we provided:
-Apartment leases for the past 2 years showing both our names and our bond agreement
-Joint bank account statements and credit card statements with joint purchases annotated
-Utilities bills (these were all in my partner's name but we showed how payments for these bills came from our joint bank account)
-Joint US tax returns and Australian tax returns with each other listed as spouse
-AFP police check for applicant (I hadn't submitted one for the first stage as I was yet to spend time in Australia)
-Each of our Australian drivers licenses showing us residing at the same address
-Copies of our joint contents insurance policy, health insurance policy, listing of each other as sole beneficiaries of our superannuation accounts, and screenshots of HR portal at work where we each have the other listed as an emergency contact
-Scans of cards and letters addressed to both of us from friends, family and organisations
-Scans of each of our passports and the other identity documents we supplied the first time around (birth certificates, drivers licenses, marriage certificate, etc)
-Statutory declaration from partner, using the specific sponsor stat dec form found on the Home Affairs website
-Statutory declarations on form 888 from 3 relatives and a coworker
-Screenshots of texts and Facebook messages we've sent each other, copies of our mobile call records to show we stay in contact while apart at work or elsewhere
-Screenshots of Facebook evidence (events attended together, photos and posts of us together, comments from friends/family on our wedding photos, etc.)
-Scans of all joint travel from the past 2 years (airline tickets, rental car contracts, hotel room bookings, photos from us traveling)
-Scans of tickets/invitations for events attended together (concerts, weddings, etc)

We organised everything very clearly and had cover pages for the entire submission and for each of the four categories. We may have gone a bit overboard in supplying evidence but this is what we did for phase 1 (309) and it resulted in a relatively quick grant. This was the case for the 100 as well. Good luck to all on your visa journeys!

The AAT remitted the decision back to DIAC on May 23rd, and I am still waiting for the Department to acknowledge this.

100 Granted in 7 weeks

Hi All

So I received my grant letter yesterday and couldn't be happier. This forum has been such a help over the last 2.5 years and I always draw great comfort from hearing other peoples progress so I thought I would provide my timeline.

My partner and I have been together for 6 years, but didn't moved in with each other until 2 years before apply for 309/100.

Online application start to finish:
Applied for 309/100 from London: 23 April 2017
Received 309 grant: 30 May 2017 (5 weeks) [front loaded all police checks and health check)

Emailed asking if I would also get 100 visa but was told I did not meet the 3 years living together requirement. did not receive any further communication other than when I was eligible to apply for the next stage in march 2019 and then the grant letter.

Became eligible for 100: 23 April 2019
Submitted 100 Application & Documents: March/April
Received 100 Grant: 11 June 2019 (7 weeks)

So the whole process from start to finish for us was 25.5 months. We have still not moved to Australia yet but will be moving later this year.

When submitting additional evidence for 100 visa, we provided:
-Flat leases for the past 2 years
-Joint bank account statements with annotations
-Utilities bills in both names
-Police checks
-Scans of both passports and the other identity documents like birth certificates and drivers licenses
-Statutory declaration from partner, using the specific sponsor stat dec form found on the Home Affairs website
-Statutory declarations on form 888 from 3 people (2 Australian and 1 UK citizens)
-Facebook page and relationship PDF
-Scans of all joint travel from the past 2 years with tickets, hotels, rental car, accompanied with photos from the trips.

and thats it. it was probably an easier application than the last time but to be honest that's probably just because we had done the application before and had most of the main documents from before.

We didn't do that much organising of the documents and didn't provide a covering letter outlining everything like we did for the first one (309), but i get the feeling that the important thing is to prove that you live together.
I had expected to get PR strait away when apply back in 2017, but not having lived with my partner for more than 3 years prior to applying was the main reason I had to wait the extra two years before getting PR. This surprised me as I was under the impression that if we could show we were in a committed relationship for more than 3 years prior we would get PR strait away.

Im not really sure why my application took considerably less time than 75%-90% of applications but, I hope some of this information is useful to you all and provides some comfort to those of you who are still waiting or are about to apply, I wish you all the best of luck .

Congratulation, pretty quick..

You are actually in the 75% group yourself, although just about the fastest of the recent ones..

Many people get confused with that 75%-90% timelines

These are the most recent subclass 100 grants on the forum (excluding the direct to 100 grants).
17.4 months, from Columbia. 41.4 from 309 application
4.9 months, from USA. 28.9 from 309 application
4.3 months, from Philippines. 28.3 from 309 application
2.5 months, from Chile. 26.5 from 309 application
2.8 months, from USA. 26.8 from 309 application
1.8 months, from USA. 25.8 from 309 application
1.6 months, from UK. 25.6 from 309 application

Most of the above are in the 75% processed in under 15 months group, for the 100 grant..

It is almost time for us to submit my husband's 100, on the Home Affairs website it says he needs overseas police certificate. He has not been back to the USA since moving here two years ago, do we still need to obtain this.

And another thing I'm already stressing about is photos of us with our family and friends. We have attended quite a few different events over the two years, but we both have got new phones and didnt think of keeping the photos, nor are we big on taking many photos... how many do we need and will this be an issue, or will the form 888's from family and friends be good enough?

Thanks.
