We applied for spouse visa at Perth office mid June 2011 and had the visa approved Jan 2012. I did pester them quite alot because we had a honeymoon booked for feb 12. I basically begged for visa approval because my husbands bridging visa did not allow travel.

I applied in late August 2011. I am still waiting. only heard from the CO once. I had to apply a BVB to travel overseas this month. someone said they are processing applications from June/July now. I saw on the internet that there are 20,000 applications onshore and 20,000 offshore. if you call immi, they will only tell you the processing time 9-12 months.

good luck with your application!

Hello! I applied in person in November 2011 and still no answer from anyone!
I tried to call DIAC several times but they stick with the 9-12 months processing, not a single information revealed...
In the meantime they waived my work restriction (from my previous WHV).

Good luck to everyone!

Form 1005

I lodged my spouce application in February 2012 and have heard nothing, except that they have recieved the application.
Reading throught the information on this thread it seems that the processing time will be the full 12 months.
Finding it really hard sitting at home everyday for the last 6 months while my wife goes out to work..... and its been a financial nightmare especially with the current Aus Dollar - UK pound exchange rate (we have to bring over savings from the UK supplement my wife's income).
Think I need to apply using form 1005 to have the "no work" restriction removed from my bridging visa.
Would really appreciate help from anyone who has managed to get the work restriction removed...
Thanks in advance

I havent done it yet but it seems that you just have to demonstrate financial hardship w a spreadsheet, few bills and a letter explaining situation.

Did u walk into the perth office? And could u hand it in personally or did u just have to put it in a box?

I sent in the application via registered mail, and got a replay about a week later acknowledging receipt of application.
Didnt know you could just walk in, how did you do yours?

Wow emily please let us know when its approved ( the 1005)
We will be submitting in september. I know theres a walk in office in perth but i get mixed answers to whether theres anyone in it who will speak with you haha! If i post it im considering sending to sydney to be honest, unless i discover definitively that perth is actually a processing center and not just a collection agency. ( we live 3 hrs drive from perth so its not worth taking the day off otherwise)
