Unhappy

We applied for our 300 visa in Oct 2015 and are still waiting.
Its shows me approved as the sponsor and my fiance as assessment in progress.
We get no response from our case officer despite our emails to him pertaining to questions related to documentation.

We are waiting till Dec 16 - by then it will be 14 months which is the max time stipulated on the website and we will then make a complaint to the department as this has gone beyond a joke.

Very disappointed in the service but the sad thing is cant do anything about it.

Still waiting after 14 months, nearly 15 now

Waiting for a decision on our 309 partner visa over 14 months now. Hitting 15 months next week. It is being processed in Berlin. After contacting them they advised us that only 75% are processed within the standard processing times.

On the immi website the Partner Visa application shows "received" and the Sponsorship shows "submitted"

Also as we were starting a RTW trip in September we went ahead and got the medical and police checks done in August.

Are others in the same situation or should we be worrying?
Looks to be plenty of others in the same boat, I wouldn't worry. I've been waiting 11 months now, some others on here even longer than that it seems. My Partner is from Norway. We haven't had any communication since January hope your's is quicker than ours

Hi guys,
We applied the beginning of Feb and heard absolutely no word whatsoever until the 18th October so that was a really long wait. We were asked for some extra info and for medicals. Those are done now, uploaded and finalised so now I guess it's just another who knows how long to wait.
We are living in two different countries now so I seriously hope not too much longer. We also got married in September and had our certificate and other things added to our immigov.

Has any one who applied late last year or early this year been granted a visa yet?

Screw complaining to the department - I would go directly to the Minister. The public servant who (supposedly) oversees the entire portfolio and is accountable to the public

Yes and no to the above - read back a few pages and you'll get a good idea
