Oh! South Africa, I was like what is going on, why the delay! After 2 weeks of giving them what they asked for but finally I can now breathe easily.

Congratulations! So glad to see movement for people who have been waiting far too long...

What was your processing office?

It seems to me like recent applications are getting approved quickly (via Berlin), while the older ones are still with Pretoria.

@ Jano, thanks. I have always felt it was Pretoria because Nigeria is under South Africa but don’t really know because it was lodged by an agent for us.

Thanks Massi.

309 finally got granted! Processing Office: Pretoria

Applicant: Zambian
DoL: 23 November 2018
First RFI: March 2019
2nd RFI: October 2020
Grant date: 01 March 2021

Lucky to have had the department make the amendment to make grants onshore.
I have been in Aus throughout the waiting of my visa.
Managed to do this through a bridging visa which was granted by appealing my rejected work sponsorship. Lodged my appeal in 2019 and have been waiting since then.

When I checked my VEVO, I noticed that the 309 has overridden the bridging visa.

I thought I would automatically get a 100 after all this waiting but at this point, I'm just happy with the grant 🙂
