Hello, we applied June 2018 and still awaiting To try speed things along we asked our agent to send our HAP ID and when they did we noticed Tiana was spelt Tianna. This was a mistake from the agent on entry which seems to be fixed in most parts of the system, but still appeared "Tianna" on the HAP ID form we supposed to take to the medical.

Anyway on querying this with the agent they said we must wait until SA Oz Embassy fix the HAP ID name mistake before we can go get medicals done.

We have not been requested for medical yet, just to try move things along.

Does the name (Tianna instead of Tiana) make a difference being so slight and an obvious typo, considering we have the HAP ID numbers etc?

I am Australian Citizen by birth, lived South Africa 13 years. Returned to Oz Sept 2018 to setup home/life for family. Met my wife 5 years ago in SA, married and had a baby September 2016. Our baby is Australian Citizen by decent now (no visa needed). Tiana's son 8 years (I have raised him since 3 and my son too realistically) and Tiana are South Africans applied on the 309 offshore visa, I am the sponsor (dad/husband).

Applied June 2018
Nothing since then

Hello. We applied for the PMV in June 2018. My partner is from Zimbabwe and has just received an invitation to attend a face to face interview next month. Has anyone had any experience with interviews for this visa? Just curious what kind of information they are looking for and if this means they are questioning the validity of our relationship? Thanks 😊

I have no personal experience with this but there is a search function on this forum. You could try that. I know I've seen people on here discussing interviews and the questions etc before

Rather than changing timeframes and delaying application why can the immigration not employ more people.They should consider how these long waits are mentally affecting people.l am one of them l am mentally drained.I understand that they thoroughly assess curses but honestly let us be realistic 20months??.let us have our voices head keeping to ourselves will never help.
Am so in support of this, we are suffering.

17 months, not a single contact. Pretoria seems to have the longest processing time. Very frustrating

true, so slow. Because I saw someone getting his visa (less than 5 months or even 3). In this thread, I didn’t hear any recent grants, have you? Are you uploading any recent supporting? I’ve been waiting for 5 months, still a long way to go.
