VISA GRANTED after 17 months 21 days

Hi guys and girls. My fiance arrived in Munich last week to attend my graduation. A few days later we left for our holiday in Croatia. On our first morning (which was yesterday 30.07.2013) here while seated at a beach my CO JK called:

" Gerrywins are you sitting down?" I said Yes with a huuuge smile. " I am happy to tell you that your visa has been granted and that you can travel back to Australia with your fiance."

I am over the moon, now we can totally enjoy our two week holiday here in Croatia. We've already booked our flights for the 12 August 2013.

I thank you all for all your encouraging messages. The journey still continues and I will still be in the forum. Gotta go back to enjoying this wonderful news at a nice beach somewhere. :-)

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum, but I am already part of the club... I've been waiting for almost 13 months and still nothing at all :-(
The problem is that I am getting really paranoid about it, having often irrational fears of getting stuck with Bridging Visa A forever?? Or having my application refused after all this waiting?? Sorry guys I don't want to be a pain, but it's somehow so comforting to see that I am not the only one stuck in this situation.. :-(

Alex

P.S. I am from Italy and my partner is Australian. We are registered as Defacto and we applied for my Partner Visa in August 2012.

Have you contacted them to see what's happening? If so what do they say?

I've called twice, the first time they said if the application is not more than 13 months old they can't tell me anything, and the second time they told me that now the average time of processing is 18 months :-((

Since lale1403 mentioned a BVA they're onshore waiting.

Lale, 13 months is actually pretty common for onshore partner visas at the moment. Actually I think the average processing time is up to 15 months+ now. So don't be too worried. Hang in there. It'll happen.
