Smile london prospective marriage visa processing times

Hey guys,
I am about to apply from my pmv! I just wanted to start a new thread for everyone applying for a prospective marriage visa from the uk to give us all an idea of how long we have to wait at the moment and how fast applications are being granted. If you could put down your processing times:
date applied:
when co was assigned:
medicals front loaded?
police cert frontloaded?
interview required?
date granted?
and any other information that you think would be helpful!
there seems to be a thread for people from indonesia and phillipines but none for us pommies! and i thought it would be nice to get some insight from others...

Thank you!!

I am also in the process of putting together my submission from London (I live in London, fiancee lives in Sydney) and would love to hear how slow or quick your processing time was. I have already done all the health check, police check stuff so I'm really interested in how the process worked for you from the time you submitted your application.

Hi, This is ours. We are patiently waiting for what seems a lifetime already for a email saying your visa has been approved. Even a simple email saying how the progress was going or do we need to supply anything else would be just great

date applied: MAy 10th 2012
when co was assigned: May 15th 2012
medicals front loaded? June 7th
police cert frontloaded? sent with application
interview required? not as yet
date granted pacing the hallway waiting


Would be great to here from anyone else that has lodged theres from the LOndon embassy to see how long there visa took to be approved.

Hi there, also putting together me and my fiance's application to be lodged in London.

He will be returning to England at the end of August so will probably submit a couple of days after he arrives home.

The biggest hassle for him is going home and trying to track all his travel and visas from the past for the Applicant paperwork - he has travelled the world, so dates etc is going to be very difficult for him to remember!!
Plus his old passport is at home so he will have to go through that when he gets home.

The whole process is so stressful - I'm doing something for the application EVERY DAY. My fiance took me out to dinner last night as a "night off" from visa prep haha

Also, we have not been together long - 3 and a half months - so I'm a bit stressed about that.

Hi there

We have applied for the de facto partner visa on 8th August 2012 in London! The money has been taken out of our account on the 9th, so that's great! Now the long wait has begun.

Will keep you updated...

Hi guys,

Anyone still watching this thread?
Our application was sent Friday Aug 31st, told by the post office it would arrive by Monday, so hopefully we get an email of reciept by the end of the week! Fiance going to medicals ASAP whe he gets the go ahead. Hi police check arrived at our house in Aus on Friday, so I am sending that today. He is also sending off his UK police check today, which only takes like 7 days.. Will be so glad once everything is sent in and all we have to do it wait!!!

Hi guys,

I am hoping someone's still checking this thread. I'd just love an update on if/when you guys got the visa, and how long it took.

My fiancee and I applied for the Intent to Marry Visa and got a case worker assigned at the beginning of Feb. I'm praying that we get it soon because I have to go back to Oz for work and he'll have to stay here in Spain.

They've asked for his medical check to be sent next week. Is that a good sign?

I know they say 10 months but I've read a lot of people saying that generally, for applications from low risk countries, it's more like 6 months. Is this still true? It's so frustrating. I understand that the Australian visa people must have so much work on their plates but I just wish we could get it sooner and start our lives together in Oz.

Thanks guys,

Sarah

So they are quoting 10 months now? We were told 8 to 9. We've been waiting 6 1/2 months already, and last time I looked Britain was not a high risk country , so I wouldn't expect any special treatment...

If anyone is reading this thread can they please let me know why once i lodged and paid for our pmv in london, we got an email from our case officer saying NOT to lodge medivalz or polive checks until july 2013 (we applied april 2013). Could thiz be due to capping perhaps?
