Hello everyone. I have been following this thread since few months ago now but I have never intervened. I got my PMV yesterday August 14, 2019 and I would like to share my experience. I’m the applicant, I’m from Benin (West Africa, located between Togo and Nigeria) and my fiancée is Australian. Here is our story. My fiancée and I first met in January 2017 while working for a humanitarian organization in my home country. We are both 32. Our relationship officially started 4 months later in April 2017. After she got back in Australia, she visited me in 3 occasions in my home country and we spent holidays in Singapore. We applied twice for tourist visa, one in March 2018 and the other in February 2019(after applying for PMV), both of them have been refused (not enough evidences to be considerate as a genuine visitor). We applied for our PMV on October 9, 2018, no immigration agent used, front load, except my health assessment that has been done in December 10, 2018. On June 14, 2019 i received an invitation letter to attend an interview in Accra (Ghana). On July 8, 2019 I attended my interview that lasted approximately one hour. On July 27, 2019 I uploaded a new police certificate (they never asked me to do it, it was my decision), the first one was supposed to expire August 2, 2019. So on August 14, 2019 at 9”38 am (GMT+1) I got my golden email, after 10 months and 5 days.
Here are the details of my timeline
09/10/2018: applied for PMV
10/12/2018: Health assessment
14/06/2019: Invitation letter for interview in Accra (Ghana)
08/07/2019: Interview held in Ghana
27/07/2019: Uploaded new police certificate (they never asked it, the first one was about to expire)
14/08/2019: PMV granted
Length: 10 Months 5 days

This process is unbearable, i can't even imagine how it's difficult for those who are waiting since almost 2 years.I'm praying this is the first of many grant to come out of Pretoria.Keep praying and i'm sure your time will come.

Thanks for sharing your experiences. Can I ask what kinds of questions did they ask you in your interview?
There have been many people saying they have had interviews but not so many sharing what takes place.
Thank you and congratulations I hope you enjoy living in. Australia!! And being together with your fiancee again!!
