Embassy never called me at all, at 13 months & 3 weeks my fiance received a direct email to her inbox (not via the agent) saying they will be in her country to interview her in a designated hotel on 20th May 2016..the interview went well & she was able to answer all questions, there was many!...the best policy is to answer with 100% honesty as we've found out! as she did!, funny though in the email my fiance was asked if she needed an interpreter & what language, she replied to say she speak comfortably in English to me but for purposes of important interview a translator is best option...when the lady arrived she only spoke English so it seemed ironic to us that the Moscow embassy officer needed the Interpreter for herself to translate as she could only speak English & working in the Oz embassy Moscow

We are planning her entry into Australia as early as next week sometime..finally we can be together....its been a LONG hard wait to be together, if your still waiting we wish you well & hope you get your visa asap

I'll be back intouch shortly....gotta let alot of people know the good news!

Many thanks to the officer whom made the decision,they have the power to create what will be our beautiful future together

DOL 19th March 2015
Visa Grant 26th May 2016

Kind Regards
Fantastic news!! So happy for you and your fiance! Now you can plan the wedding and your life together

Looking at the spreadsheet it is a totally different story from last month. So many grants last month but nothing this month. Wonder if that was intentional because they're busy this month or if the grants are just going to those who don't log it in the spreadsheet

It is consistent with previous years if you look back I was totally expecting to see this, I think its got to do with being the end of financial year and they have hit the limit of visa's that they can give out so you wont see any more grants till next month

They have planning levels for the migration program each year. These are announced each year in the budget papers and statistics from the following annual reports always show they hit there target! So even though there is no "cap" on family visas the planning levels act like one.

When applications in any given year exceed the planning levels then wait times increase and cases are held over to the next financial year, hence the lack of grants in June. For the previous financial year applications exceeded planning levels by about 7,000.

Perhaps the increase in prices for the previous year will have led to a decrease in applications. It will be interesting to read the annual report when it comes out.

Just a tip to anyone thinking of browsing the Russian forun gday.ru, it is full of trolls and bullies who completely bullied me into having the worst anxiety about this entire immigration process. They teased my Russian, then claimed it was written by a native (my husband was helping me with it so, yeah... kinda), then accused me of not being a native english speaker, and trying to troll them even though all I was trying to do was talk about moscow embassy

I then got private messages from people who agreed with me and said that the forum is full of trolls who just want to insult every new person so that treatment is typical.

I guess I'll be sticking to this forum them with my apparently non native english :/

Some good news - my husband got a 6 month multi entry visa to the UK, which will be valid until february! We're heading there for at least a month as planned, and the multi entry gives us another option for a country to go to if need be while the Aus partner visa processes. Definitely feels good to get away for a while, and possibly meet some Australians (or at least people who speak English!)

Hi all,

Just signed up to the forum and I'm pretty encouraged that this Moscow thread is quite active. It has been good to read about and relate to other people's experiences.

My fiancee has applied for a PMV with the help of an agent and we uploaded all of our evidence in March and payment for the PMV was also deducted then.

We are not aware of being assigned a CO, however in March a DIBP officer did email the agent requesting details of my fiance's Russian residency (she is Ukrainian living in Moscow). Maybe that officer is our case officer?

Anyway I hope to update our application soon

We had information requested during the first couple of weeks of lodgement with a CO name attached but heard that it could just be a general look over, see what's missing and then request it rather than having a CO assigned who is looking at your application. So the person could change.
This month someone received a PMV after 6 months with a standard application so could be good news for future PMV applications. However someone else in this thread got one after 14 months(old financial year), so who knows! I did hear from someone recently interviewed that they are trying to get everyone processed under 12 months now that the financial year has just started, starting with all the older applications from late 2015 and they're up to around nov-jan 2015/2016. But if you look at the spreadsheet in the OP there are still people waiting longer. That could be a result of delayed security checks.
Someone in the spreadsheet was refused a PMV because they didn't submit enough evidence (bc DIBP customer service told them what they submitted was enough....), and the case officer mistakenly cited rules that only apply to partner visas, so still try to submit as much as you can.
If you haven't already, record your PMV application process in the spreadsheet in the OP, it'll help us calculate current averages.

Another note, because of the lack of applications lodged after the fee increase, we are all hoping the applications are processed faster. Here's hoping!

Thanks Kahliimah,

I will add details to the spreadsheet.

On another note, my fiancee did apply for a tourist Visa in August 2015 but was rejected - but her PMV application was lodged by an agent. Will the PMV application also be visible if she logs in to her original immi account?

Is there any benefit to logging into the immi account - can we chack progress etc? We just left it all up to the Migration agent to handle.

Cheers
