We applied a month after you. Did they request for medicals? Usually when they request documents you not far from getting a grant. All the post. Fingers crossed we all get ours soon. Pretoria needs to work a bit quick on family visas.

This thread has been dormant for 2 weeks. I took it that there's been no news. Keep us posted, even if it's a simple contact from a CO or change in status...

I literally have not heard a peep since lodging except for the automated request for medicals and biometrics straight after applying... this whole "no news is good news" business is really testing my patience!

Lol same here... With the end of FY ending soon, I hope there are still lots of quotas for 309 and PMV to be granted. Crossing fingers XX

It is almost end of year for visa grants, so it is always slow around now. From memory there is a bit of a spike in grants in about 1 months time, but only at places the quota has not been meet.

Do you know hat happens to our applications if the quota has been filled ? Do they push them over to the new FY at the 'top of the pile' so as so say or does it go back to the bottom?

The case officer requested more information on the 10th March which I supplied to them within 2 weeks. I emailed them on the 9th May to follow up as we have been waiting 11 months and the medical will be expiring on the 14th June as per their request to do it at that time. I received an email last week advising that its still processing and will advise if they require any more information from me. 9th June we will be reaching our 12 month mark and is getting frustrating as they don't really provide no feedback at all. Hoping everyone gets there's before EOFY.

Hi all -

We just got our prospective marriage visa granted!

We applied in late Oct 2016, so about 6 months ago. My fiance is Lebanese, but we live in Liberia and he has lived here his whole life.

Now we are just trying to rapidly change our wedding plans as we didn't expect to get it granted so fast! Wish you all the best of luck!

Hey Soro! Congrats and wish you both all the blessings for the future exciting life in Aus. Thanks for keeping us updated!!

I had submitted my PMV on 30 Sept 2016 and provided by police check with initial application and also did medical end of Mar 17 but so far didn't hear anything. However, my application is a bit complicated and therefore I'm sure more scrutiny would be performed and also I'm from high risk country. If ever I get the grant this month, then this might help greatly and can think of moving to Aus by start of Sep (not sure but depending on work projects), but if not, then it won't make much difference if it's granted between June-Nov 16 as I won't move in Aus post Sept for work related reasons.

Have a blast!!!
