I think most of the COs have been on holidays or will be going on holidays soon but it should not affect the processing of the application as someone usually takes over till they return.

I noticed on this forum that the last person to receive a visa was towards the end of may so maybe this quota theory is correct...hopefully there should be lots of visas granted in july!!

We are now at 7 months and 11 days, cant wait till july!!!!

More and more couples that have been waiting 7 months are popping up and I can't deny that's it worrying :O I hope it's just because of the quotas

I agree everyone seems to be getting to and past the 7 month mark. I was really expecting things to be done by now...

I would not do that if I were you... from immi.com.au:

"You must be outside Australia when you apply and also when the Partner (Provisional) visa (subclass 309) is granted. You can be in or outside Australia when Partner visa (subclass 100) is granted."

You can apply for a tourist visa but it just means when your case worker is ready to make a decision you will need to leave the country in order to receive your results (E.g. go on holiday to New Zealand)

This is an option that was discussed with Immi as well as offered by the CO.you must be outside the australia when visa 309 is granted. You can be in australia on a visitors visa and the CO will notify you to leave the country to any other country(ie NZ) and when you re-enter you will enter under your new visa(309). There is no issue with this option except she dowsnt have the right to work etc...

Freddie, it is actually very, very common for people to do that these days. If you read more of this forum, you'll see that. Immi understands that they're asking partners to be separated for a very long period of time now that processing times are so long, so they've gotten more and more lenient with it. All people have to do is notify their CO they are getting a tourist visa and going onshore, and then the CO will notify them before granting their visa, they leave the country, the visa is granted, and they fly back in on their visa. I was going to do this myself, but my CO actually just went ahead and granted my visa instead, which was lovely (we'd already been waiting almost 9 months anyway).

Another thing we have asked our CO if there is any chance to obtain the visa in September which would be 6 months from date of lodgement however she replied this was unlikely at this point expecting the visa for October.

Hello Arthurkiss
Can I asked you when you asked your CO did you do it by email or phone? How quick was the response?
I ask because our CO seems unresponsive
