Yea dear, I'm praying a lot too for all of us. It's not easy and it's even stressful.

Thank you for your words Selwyn - let's hope everyone is reunited with their loved ones soon. I'll keep you updated

No it shouldn't... We are like 6-10 people here n the forum who applied through Pretoria but nobody received their grant yet though some applied from May-June 2016... My medical has been cleared online (No CO requested, I just went ahead and did it after applying for PMV on 30 Sept)
Hi Selwyn and Charlz
I'm one of these people - my husband is Zambian, we applied in May 2016 for his partner visa, but we decided to go to Melbourne because we didn't want to be apart - we are both currently here, he's on a visitor visa (we have to leave every 3 months) - we are hoping for the visa to be granted soon but my agent says the processing times are 12 months for high risk countries (we lodged in Pretoria) could be up to 15 months my husband has not been asked for medicals yet, we have decided not to submit them before we are asked because they expire after 6 months...and once we are asked for medical we know that our case is being processed so it shouldn't be too long until it's granted.
I know it's just so hard because we are all left in the dark - but I'm praying and hoping for the best. We are Melbourne - would love to meet up and share a drink and our stories one day when we are together.

Hi Abeez

Thanks for your messages. Yes let's hope everyone gets reunited soon and great to see some people active here. I'm sad to hear your husband hasn't been asked for his medical yet, I assume maybe coz he is Non SA Citizen as 1-2 SA Citizens were requested within few months only. It is true it should be around 12 months and can even go up to 18 months! My case is a little bit complex as my fiancee was previously married.

Btw, medicals expire in 12 months (not 6 months). It's been 10 months you applied already, I'd have gone ahead and do my medical (which I did already after 5.5 months waiting and still no words from CO).

Oh yea, we should all definitely meet up and I'm always in for learning new cultures.

Cheers

Selwyn

DIBP has just updated their website providing the current processing time and it's as follows:
PMV 300 : 75% application processed in 12 months and 90% application processed in 17 months
PV 309 : 75% application processed in 11 months and 90% application processed in 15 months
PV 100 : 75% application processed in 15 months and 90% application processed in 23 months
PV 820 : 75% application processed in 18 months and 90% application processed in 20 months
PV 801 : 75% application processed in 16 months and 90% application processed in 20 months

I'm really down now...

That's what I also ask myself. Some relationships sometimes can even break down or go into a bad phase. It's really hard waiting offshore while your partner isn't with you. Long distance relationship is a big challenge when its ongoing for years (in my case 4.5 years)
