Awesome thanks, I’ll pass that on. It’ll either be Christmas in Aus or Canada depending on Aus government letting her back in on the tourist visa.
Cheers!

They specifically mentioned tightening up spouse visas too which is a real shame.


Has she thought about doing her police check/medical now, before they ask for it? If she does go the RCMP to get fingerprinted it is only $25, not a huge deal to have to pay again if her application does take another 12 months.

Hi Everyone,

I am sure you have all seen that global processing time has increased from 12-16 months to 21-26 months...

I thought I would send a quick note to see if anyone applying from Canada has gotten an approval lately and would like to share their timeline?

you might cheer up those of us who potentially have a two year wait...

Thanks!

Hi,

Is it mandatory for sponsor (PR holder) to stay in Australia to apply for spouse 309 visa ?

I am from Pakistan and working/living in Saudi Arabia having valid PR (visited Australia once for three days to mature my PR).
I applied for spouse visa in June 2017 and submitted all requested documents and waiting for reply.

I am in Saudia while my spouse is in Pakistan. Co has not asked anything about Australian address/job to be sponsor.

Please response if anybody has applied 309 visa being sponsor while both husband and wife living offshore.

Hi there! Glad that I found a 309 Canada thread!

So me and my girlfriend applied on June 23rd 2017 while we both were on a working holiday visa in Canada. Shes from Australia and Im from Estonia.
Its been just over 13 months and the application is in further assesment since March.
Been in contact with the CO and provided him with the up to date police clearence he was asking for. Havent heard from him since and that was like 4 months ago now.
Im currently in Australia as a visitor and my first 3 months is just about to run out.
Im reading that Ottawa is super quick and all that but doesnt seem to be the case in our situation. Could our case be classified as "complicated" due to the fact that im Estonian and we applied in Canada?
Calling them is a fairly pointless thing to do since they only hit you with the copy paste answers on the phone and wont go into much detail, especially when its within the processing time (which now is a ridicilous 21-26 months).

Hoping that someone can offer a bit of a relief. I'll only be able to enter as a tourist one more time so hoping it gets apporoved by November this year, which would be 16 months.

I applied Feb 4 and have not heard anything yet.

QUOTE=BDC;1896949]Hi guys, my partner is from Canada and we submitted our pmv march 17th 2018. No news as of yet. I’ve seen a few remarks about fingerprints, will she need to get fingerprints done with her police clearance in Canada? She lives in NB.

She’s coming back to Australia in 2 weeks for 3 months as our agents have told us not to expect anything this year. Hoping to spend Christmas together.

Cheers[/QUOTE]

I applied in Dec 2017 and have been assigned a case officer in Ottawa in March.
They requested medicals and some documentation which was all completed by April.

Have not heard anything since.
