I thought I'd share my application process:

Visa : Subclass 461 (Nz-citizen partner temp visa)
Applied: 02.11.16
Police clearance submitted with application
Low risk country (Sweden)
Medical submitted 21.03.17 (1 week after requested by co).
Visa grant : 19.05.17


I went to Australia on a tourist visa at the end of February to be with my partner, and was luckily asked to depart for finalization of visa 10 days before my tourist visa ran out. I went to Nz and within one hour of departing Sydney they had sent me an email with my visa Grant notification.

I have been in a de-facto relationship with my kiwi boyfriend for 7 years and we have in the past done his partner visa for Sweden and that process took exactly as long as estimated and it was very easy to track your process.

I was a little frustrated about waiting for this visa for almost 7 months because when I applied the estimated processing time offshore for a low risk country was 2 months!! And 5 months later they changed this processing time on their website to 9-11 months!! I understand this is not a long time compared to the waiting time for partners of Australian citizens, this visa is however a temporary visa for 5 years and does not lead to permanent residency.

Good luck everyone and have a great weekend!

Hello Friends

A little update: Got my 309 granted after 17,5 months. I think the reason that it took so long time for me was security clearance.

So hold out guys! If there is a tunnel there must be some lights at the end.

Hope everyone get some god news very soon!

See you on the other side of the earth

Peace and love!

Hi all,

Just wondering how everyone's applications are going?

I submitted my PMV 300 at the end of May 2017 (high risk country being assessed in Berlin) and haven't heard anything as yet. Called the embassy one month in and they advised that there was still no case officer allocated. Will wait a couple more weeks before calling again for another update.

Hi,

From what I've heard this seems normal to have not heard anything yet only 2 months in (more so with high risk countries).

If you haven't heard anything in another month or two, you could always send your police/medical checks in.

What is your country of birth?

To be very honest, I feel it is standard but I thought I would call just for a general check in.

My country of birth is Australia, my partner is Czech

This is kind of late but I wanted to share the information anyway!

My Fiance (now wife) applied for her PMV on December 21 2016, and it was granted by the Berlin office on the 7th of April 2017.

This was hugely quicker than we expected. We didn't even know it was possible to happen even half that fast so it was a huge surprise we were not prepared for.

I just wanted to let you know it's probably not likely, but it is a possibility!

All the best to you all !

Nothing from my end. I applied a bit later than you (30 May PMV sc 300) and haven't heard anything. I keep trying to call the High Commission in London just to follow up but can never get through as the line is always engaged.

Applied on 5.11.2016 from Poland.
Case officer allocated asked for extra documentation that we provided a month ago and haven't heard since then so 9 months waiting already.
Application done by RMA.
There is my fiancée and her 2 kids involved as well.

Yep - the whole process is slow and frustrating. Hopefully we will hear something soon.
