Finally got around to submitting our 309 application, from Pretoria.

We did a self-managed application, with an agent who reviewed it for us, which helped a lot.

Thankfully we've been collecting docs (birth, marriage, PCC) for a while already. Lockdown meant the PCCs took 4 months from application to collection at police station. My country of birth was wrong, but an email to [email protected] and it was corrected and ready for collection at the Criminal Records Centre in Pretoria.

We aren't in a hurry, due to Covid travel restrictions, but if we get it by this time next year I'd be happy.

All the best to everyone who is waiting for an answer!

My husband received his 309 visa grant through Pretoria last month.
He is from Nigeria and we lodged our application Feb 2019.

Which email are you using for Pretoria, I emailed them many times and always received a response almost immediately.

PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION!

Our official petition regarding offshore partner visa processing (subclasses 300 and 309) is LIVE! We need YOUR help to get 10,000 signatures before September 2nd.

If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident and can spare 30 seconds, it would be great to have your support added to the petition for parliament to process offshore partner visas fairly and quickly.

Signing this petition could help thousands of couples finally start their lives together in Australia. Due to inequities in the system (explained in the petition) offshore partner visa applicants can wait more than two years just to get their application looked at. This is an unreasonable amount of time and is resulting in incredible stress for couples and their children, many of whom have to live apart while their visa application is being processed.

If you sign, you will need to check your email straight after to confirm/validate the signature as otherwise it won’t count. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us hope of a fairer processing system!

Here's the link: 👇👇👇

Sorry can't read it, have the times changed again? I think that when they finally resume there will be a big backlog, and then a long wait to get into Australia. Even Australian Citizens are complaining they can't get a seat in a plane to get home.

Yes, they are getting faster. Most now done in under 15 months instead of 16 months before COVID.

309 - Partner (Provisional) (subclass 309)

Dec 2019: 16-21 = 75% took up to 16 months. 10% took over 21 months.

July 2020: 15-20 = 75% took up to 15 months. 10% took over 20 months.
