Hi everyone

Happy new year!

I'm South African and my soon to be husband is Australian (he's been working in SA for 3.5years). We've been together for just over 3 years with our wedding coming up in April. I'm hoping to submit my application for 309/100 visa by end February.

Wondering if I should add my police clearance and medical certificate with my application? Any advice on how much info to attach?

Are there also any recent applicant (less than 6 months), if so, how has the process been for you so far?

Nat

Hello,

I'm so glad I found this forum a few months ago because it has been so much help for my FiancÚs PMV, so thanks to everyone on here who is so helpful, I'm Australian and my partner is Sth African.

Online PMV applied for 5/1/18
Biometrics done 6/1/18
All supporting docs submitted by 11/1/18
Police Clearance submitted 15/1/18
Health Check done 18th & 19/1/18

Contacted by the department on 19/1/18 to ask for one of the 888 stat decs even though all 3 were attached on the same file (seems they didn't notice this). I then sent on separate files on 20/1/18. My sponsorship application already says approved but I know not to get my hope up and don't expect any decision until early next year

He also applied for a tourist visa on 20/11/17 but after 65 days that still hasn't been approved and he's due to fly here for a month in 12 days. So we are a bit stressed about why that hasn't been approved, but worst case I will fly over there. Will just cost more which we don't need as this process is expensive enough.

Thanks

We got our grant today! It's such an amazing and surreal feeling.

Applied: August 25th 2017
Submitted Medial & Police checks: September 2017
Granted: February 10th 2018

A little over 5 months of waiting, which is really great. We were expecting a much longer waiting time!

We did not wait to be requested for the police check or medical, we just did those ASAP. I think we had everything uploaded within the first week of September 2017.

In November 2017 we applied for a visitor visa so my partner could come to Australia to visit, but that was rejected. We have a friend who is getting married in April and we are both invited to the wedding here in Australia, so I sent an email to the Pretoria general information email address, just to ask if there's anything else we can do about the visitor visa being rejected, then a week later we have a grant notification for the 309! Wow.

I do wonder if my email enquiry had anything to do with the speed, but I guess we'll never know. (We never actually received a reply to that enquiry...)

While we were waiting, we were always curious about being asked for further information and how some people mention speaking to a case officer - but we never spoke to a case officer and we never were assigned to any particular person or received any correspondence ever. I hope this helps people who are feeling hopeless to just hang in there! If you haven't heard anything after a few months then don't worry! You may just get a surprising grant like we did.

Dear all,

Has anyone been married in South Africa while on a 300 PMV visa?
If so, how did you organised the NOIM? We have been told we need a letter from an Australia marriage celebrant for our application however are having trouble given we plan to get married in SA. They are all insisting on doing a NOIM before they will provide a letter.

Thanks,
Dan and Margot
