Hi All, thought i'd chime in here. Applied in Feb 2016, Interview done, Meds done, original police cert received by Moscow 2 weeks ago with a confirmation email. At the end of the email the officer said 'we aim to contact you shortly' sounds promising but we are being cautious. I think ours is being delayed because its slightly more complicated when a child is involved (additional applicant) Such a stressful process really, hang in there people! I feel your pain.

Signed statement from child's biological father that they are free to travel to Australia, witnessed and signed before a Notary whilst not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

We had a few issues with Moscow with Statement of Consent to travel re signature, it was also witnessed Ministry of Justice.

The passport signature is a electronic generation and very hard to match - they did not like it and requested form 1229 again (guess the did not see it). We resent both again and had ex sign every page.

Looks like this thread is pretty dead, the people waiting for their visas have got them and buggered off. We are still waiting for ours. It a bit stupid really when you have submitted all of the paperwork, everything is done, they have told you they need nothing else from you yet they are still twiddling their thumbs playing with peoples lives and find it hard to press the 'send' button on a generic email with a visa attachment. Very hard work.

No need to imply we've 'buggered off', a lot of us still browse frequently to assist others, but other than that there's no reason for us to post. In fact, lack of popularity regarding partner visas and Moscow the better it is for you as it means quicker wait times and less posts just talking about frustrations. When the thread was most popular (and the Russian forum too) wait times were increasing to over a year, now people are only waiting around 6 months and applications are few and far between.
Waiting was the worst, it made me angry, frustrated and impatient. As long as your relationship is legitimate, you have the evidence to prove it, and you listen to their instructions (do the medical and police check a few months into your application unless they request it prior to that, upload them straight away, and KEEP your police check original to physically give it to them once they request, they will also request form 80 so do that and upload if you haven't already, make sure you are on it ASAP if they request interview/police check original... that's when you're getting close to the grant) you'll get your grant. To make you feel better, we only had a small amount of 'official' evidence (you know, wills, super, stat decs) and we got a quick grant. A lot was self-generated. If you'd like, I'd be happy to read over all the evidence you've submitted in detail and let you know what I think (I study legislation and foreign affairs in uni so I know more of the specifics). If you are or ever will be in Melbourne, we can meet and write some stat decs regarding your relationship for you.
Alternatively, if you or your partner speaks Russian, the Russian forum gday.ru is more active, but I find their trolling like attitude abhorrent, they won't like complaining about wait times, especially from non-Russians.

Hey, we are in the same situation. Applied a month after you and recently sent originals of police certificates as requested and completed the medical.

Disappointed you are waiting still and I share your frustration, I thought it would be a quick approval once everything has been checked off.

Hope you hear some news soon!

It is still a numbers game, a set amount of Partner Visa issues each year/month. Russia will have had that number reduced I expect due they do less countries now and less work as in phone contact for visas.

I also expect if they have lowered the wait time - several visa allocations will be taken away and given to other embassies with high wait times (to keep to "service standard" times).

FYI - your Case Officer has a allocated time to process your visa, and it is less than 6 hours (5.4 hrs from memory).

6 Months.... i wish, we'll be getting to 10 months shortly and still waiting.
Take your anger, frustration and impatience and add 4 months or more to it, it's like an overflowing volcano now You were very lucky. Looking at the spreadsheet someone got it in 2.5 months ...

Thanks for the offer but it's not necessary, we have an agent and we are very thorough ourselves We have everything done, it's awaiting a decision email only.

Good luck to you also, here's hoping they will hurry up, it's people's lives after all and futures, not an Ebay item.

Hello everyone,

My first ever post here. Just need a quick question answered. Are we required to upload digitally scanned photos of the applicant to the online application for 300 PMV? Or given that my fiancee has completed her medicals and got her photograph taken as part of the medical process in Minsk, we don't really need to upload passport photographs? Please kindly advice! Thank you in advance.

Regards, Nauman.
