Hey Maud, you're welcome on board, I guess at the moment it's 11 to 16 months processing time on the department website..... maybe soon you will be asked for more information

Yeah I think the processing of the partner visa is all about individual cases or they processing it according to the date of submission.... well let keep our fingers crossed and hope it'll come soon

Australian immigration has changed their name again to Department of home affairs https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/. How I wish is the processing time of partner visa been changed to 3 months

Smile PMV and Visitor Visa

Hello all and Happy New Year!

I am Australian and my fiancÚ South African. Having read this thread our plan is to apply for a PMV and then a 12 month visitor VISA. We will both be in Cape Town during the application process however would like to get to Aus ASAP.
I would be grateful for any tips you could offer.
Also, has anyone used a good immigration Lawyer? I have spoken to a couple and they couldn't offer me half the information contained in this thread. Apart from the PMV my main concern is getting the full 12 months for the visitor VISA as we are both tired of the long distance thing.

Best wishes,
Dan

Perhaps speaking with an Australian based RMA would be more beneficial? There are a few very good and qualified ones who post on these forums. Also, there's a sticky right here with who they are.
