You can actually apply for special visitors visas of up to 6 months or up to 12 months without having to leave the country after 3 months or anytime in between. You would only have to travel out of the country once your partner visa is almost ready so you can re-enter on that visa

For the extended visitor visa you just have to show that it is financially possible and you will be supported even though you won't be working, and that you won't overstay. For example when my partner visited me for 4 months in Australia I wrote a cover letter saying that i would be providing free accommodation and had funds to support him in case of problems. and sent a copy of bank statement. He also sent evidence of scheduled work for when he returned to his country so they knew he wouldn't overstay. It only took them 24 hours to approve.

SO it would be similar, only that you would say you would leave the country as soon as you hear that your partner visa is ready and then re-enter a few days later

Congratulations!
Oh wow! maybe the wait times are a bit longer than I thought! We were hoping for 8 to 9 months and we applied in Oct 2015, so sounds like they are still working on June applicants. oh well!
Enjoy Aus!

Hi,
I received an Email from our CO yesterday.
She requested Medicals and Police clearance from a few countries I stayed.
We submitted our application end of January 2016.

I am so happy. Also that no further information is required for now. Guess that is a good sign.

Hope we are all getting there soon!

Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd add my info here as well, since I've just hopped on the visa bandwagon.

Submitted my 309 June 2nd. Still uploading files. Uploading and organizing files has been a nightmare since I didn't expect the system to be organized the way that it is. I'm waiting on getting a few documents translated, and then all of my documents will be uploaded and ready for a CO to read.

I've read on this forum that it's suggested to upload all documents within two weeks of applying, so I'm hoping to hit that deadline just in case. Part of me is hoping that if all docs are uploaded the first time around when someone looks at the application, it may speed up the process.

I'm going to do my medical in about three months, which I think may be around the time that I'll be asked for it, and it hopefully won't expire before I get my visa granted (if it gets granted). I've also sent for my FBI background check April 12th and I should receive it within three months, hopefully. My Swedish background check should arrive within a few weeks.

I've prepared as much as I can to make this process as quick and painless as possible, and hopefully it pays off! Either way, my partner and I will be over the moon whenever it is I get this visa!

Hi Matilda. You don't have to fill another form. The form you filled is for 309/100 partner visa. I think you qualify too, but it's up to the CO who is assigned to your case.
