I've lodged online (I'm from Mauritius). I was told by Aus Embassy here in Mauritius (before I apply for PMV) that they do not process Family Visa and that I should lodge in Pretoria or online. Therefore I lodged online, which I assume has gone to Pretoria. In previous Aus Embassy Pretoria website (4-5 months back), they said SA Citizen PMV/Partner Visa shall be processed within 3-6 months while Non SA Citizen within 12-15 months. I still have a long time ahead :-/

Hi
Yesterday was total 4 months for me..but I guess it will come soon..
I am a SA citizen so I will get in in maximum 6 months.
The wait is killing me because my husband went back to Australia in October..so we living apart till I get granted my visa ...
But I dont think it will be 15 months..from all the reviews it will be under 12 months

I'm hoping you get it ASAP too, so that there's little hope my application will soon be looked at next...Btw, you did your medicals and PC yourself without being ordered by CO right? In the affirmative, you haven't yet heard anything till now from the latter?

We also lodged visitors visa fingers crossed it will be granted as we want to be together Christmas time. Hope we won't have to wait long before we got our partner visas
