You will need to supply two new 888 forms, two new AFP checks (one for you and one for your partner) and a partner stat dec which you can find here https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/Visas...ec_sponsor.pdf

Additional supporting evidence to your relationship, similar to what you uploaded for the 309, is suggested as well (ie joint bank statements, joint lease/rental agreement, photos with family, online accounts, club memberships etc)

It's important to note that all info provided should detail you and your partner's relationship since the grant of your 309. Good luck!

Hi there!

Thank you for your input! Really helpful!!!
So just to double check.... The eligibility date for this 2nd submission online is after two months before the 309 submission date 2 years ago, not the 309 grat date?

Eligibility is two years from date of application, not grant.

It used to be that you could upload evidences for stage 2 two months prior to the eligibility date, but the DoHA website now states: "You can provide your documents no earlier than one month before that date. Do not send your documents too early; we will not begin assessing your application until two years have passed from the day you lodged that application."

Hello! Thanks for the reply!
But I am now a little confued regarding the timeline when the submission can be made. Like mentioned in my original post, there is a section on DIBP website stating as below

"Shortly before you are eligible to be assessed for a Partner (permanent) visa (usually two years after application lodgement), you will receive a letter from the department asking you to provide information relating to your application.

Important: If you send your information and document more than two months before your eligibility date, we will return them to you and ask you to obtain updated documents closer to your eligibility date."


Does anyone know which one is correct??

A few months ago I checked as many actual cases that I could find, and saw that those who lodged early tended, on average, to take longer to be processed than those who lodged a bit later.
I decided that we will wait until the 2 years wait is up before lodging the 100.

As they no longer send out that letter, I would assume that bit is now out of date / old information.

Two years from your 309 application is your eligibility date. You cannot apply more than two months before you eligibility date.

Example

If you applied for the 309 on 18 April 2016, then your eligibility date is 18 April 2018. You can apply no earlier than 18 February 2018 for the 309

Hope this helps!

They don't send out the email anymore advising that you are eligible for PR and to submit your documents. They ceased doing that from July 2017. Now you have to remember what your eligibility date is and remember to do it yourself.

Hello everyone. I am just posting to say that my permanent residency (sc100) was granted yesterday after FIVE MONTHS. That's right, no joke, FIVE MONTHS. I really hope I'm not the unicorn because some of you have been waiting so long. I wish you all the best. My application details below.

Applied for 309 Offshore (UK): 03-03-2015
309 Granted:18-11-2015
Arrived in Australia: 26-05-2016
100 Eligibility: 03-03-2017
Submission date: 31-08-2017
100 Granted: 19-02-2018

Just looking at your dates:
100 Eligibility: 03-03-2017
100 Granted: 19-02-2018 (11 months later)

I think the submission date is not too relevant. I feel they just try to use 'eligibility date to grant date' as a processing time guide, and yours might have been 11 months, if you had submitted at the time of eligibility, still with a February grant.

I've noticed this before.

Yes, I agree with JandE. From my experience processing goes by Eligibility date, not by upload date. So technically your processing was 11 months (like JandE points out) not 5 months. Still, 11 months is a great timeline nonetheless and under the average 12-14 months we've been seeing on here. Big congrats Legodarthmaul, and I hope you and your partner have a wonderful life together here in Oz!
