We have got the good news right on time before Christmas and we are really greatful and happy for that. Our family is finally reunited! PMV applied end of March 2018 and granted end of November 2018. Have patience and be positive. Good luck to all of you! I know the waiting is painful but believe it and it will happen. We will still be around for the next stage.

Congratulations Agape, what a joyful moments for uniting with your fiancÚ, and for him seeing his daughter for the first time. I guess Pretoria is back to work. Wish you well for the next chapter of your life. Did they ask you for further information or you guys just got the grants straight?

Thank you very much for your wishes. It is really so precious. We did the health assesment in October without being asked and in November they asked for police certificate from his country. After we provided that the grant came within some hours.

We’re 16 months now and still waiting. Obodo you mentioned you were at 17 months a few weeks ago. Have you called or emailed them to request update as you’re over the global time wait period?

Hello Waiting4eva, our agent did write them last week and we haven’t received any response from them, but at the moment Pretoria has closed yesterday Monday 24th and reopened the 2nd January 2019, hopefully we will get updates

Hi Obodo, I hope you hear back from them in early January once it reopens. We are praying we don’t have to wait over the 17 month timeframe, but it’s hard to know how behind the office is with processing at the moment.

How do you know where you Partner Visa is processed?

I am a British/South African dual national married to an Australian for 16 years; all four of my kids are Australian citizens. I submitted my visa application online through the ImmiAccount from Cape Town ... does this mean Pretoria processes it?

Does Pretoria take a long time to process Partner Visa's?

Thanks for the guidance

Hi psweaver, I’m not sure how you tell. Did you select the closest office during your application? If you put down a South African address I would assume it would go through Pretoria. I’ve been told it’s one of the busiest processing centres in the world however grant times seem to vary a lot. South Africans generally seem to be processed faster than other countries from what I’ve seen

How long are SA Police Clearance Certificates considered valid for by the Australian Government when processing a Partner Visa? Is it the 6 months SAPS say they are valid or for 1 year like the Aus Home Affairs website says?

I'm just wondering when to apply for a new Police Clearance ... don't want my present PCC to expire, be asked to submit a new one and have to wait a further 3 months to get it ... and delay my visa being approved.
