Partner Visa - Moscow Waiting Room
 
Hi All,

I just wanted to start a post for those waiting for Partner Visas from Moscow.
Please share any info or experiences you are having.

My wife and I lodged our partner visa at the Moscow embassy in June, still now word, and we are expecting a 10-14 month wait.

Someone has set up a useful google doc tracking the status of partner visa applications in Moscow, so please add your info here too if you are applying through Moscow. It seems like visa being granted at the moment were lodged about 9-10 months ago. And there is also a bit of surge in applications around June 2015 due to the increase in the visa application charge. Here's the link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...hu0/edit#gid=0

Hi Guys,
We are soon to submit a Partner Visa 309 for my wife who is Russian, we have a Australian Born son who is with her while the visa is processed offshore so im interested if any of you have applied for a Visitor visa and if it was successful?

On 3 Sep 2014 we received while waiting for PMV, a Visitor Visa for my now wife and her 2 children.

We asked for 6 month multi entry visa but given 12 months multi entry from 3 Sep 2014, it also did not have a No Further Stay condition an we did not need to leave the country every 3 months as some people have to.

We had before PMV application 6 Visitor Visa's refused by Moscow, and the only way we could get a Visitor Visa was to leave a kid behind.

That is great you got a visitor visa after so many attempts!! How is your PMV going?

My wife has been refused a visitor visa by Moscow three times, but we have been able to get a sponsored visitor visa on two occasions now, valid for a month each.

PMV was granted early 2015, we are married and have partner visa now.

Is only 2 attempts as kids are also a visa now days. So we applied 3 visas (rejected), 3 again (rejected) then 2 visas approved, then 3 VISA FOR A PMV???!!!!! and then 3 Visitor again (approved).

Hi there,
I thought that visitor visa are 3,6 and 12 month
How can they say 1 month? Seems unfair

When did you apply for rejected Visitor Visas? Before or after Partner application.

Had your partner been to Australia before?

We've had 3 refusals from Moscow embassy. First before lodging the partner visa, 2nd after lodging partner visa and being married and the 3rd was following my partners visit to Australia on a sponsored tourist visa.

She has been granted two sponsored tourist visas, we only asked for a one month stay so this is what they gave us on both occasions. We applied for the sponsored visa after the 2nd and 3rd refusals from Moscow. When they granted her sponsored visa they didn't require a bond, I assuming because we only asked for one month stay.
