That's wonderful news !

I received the email saying that my visa is ready to be granted and have to leave the country I guess I'll spend a week in Bali

it seems there is a wave of grants from the Madrid Embassy !

I applied the 31st of January and got the email on the 19/05 so under 4 months

Good luck everyone

Cheers

We've now received the grant as well. Straight to Permanent 100.
The wait was 7.5 months. Need to enter by mid January.
We had submitted the requested medical and PC in January and have been waiting ever since. Were debating sending an email for a while and finally did so this week. Within 10 minutes we had the grant. Not sure if the timing was just amazing or they had just forgotten about us. Either way very happy and relieved that the wait is over.

I thought I would share my experience on here as I found a lot of info on this site that was really helpful....My fiance is French and we applied through the Madrid embassy.
We got told that it would take 10-14months to get the visa however we got it in under 4 months!

Perhaps because we'd applied for the partner visa and done the medicals already. So my husband will visit on this visa until the partner visa is approved. He'll then leave Australia prior to the grant.
Hi Pineapple88. We're in France like you were, I've just started an application for an offshore partner visa for my husband. I'm Australian by birth, he's British and we've been married a long time.

Just curious: were you asked for the police check in the end? I plan to have the medical done first as you did to speed things up but not sure about the police check.

Also, did you apply for his tourist visa the normal way like any other time you've visited Australia? Or did you have to go through a different process because you'd already submitted a partner application? Many thanks!

Glad to have finally found some info on the Madrid proccessing times. I am hopefully applying (from Paris) for my partner in the next few weeks, and I was wondering how exactly one goes about getting medical checks here? Can I just go to a regular GP ? And biometrics? Aha really not too good at the whole french paperwork systems (though the police check / extrait de casier judiciare is particularly easy to obtain).

Congratulations to everyone who had their visa approved!!

This is actually pretty straight forward in Paris (at least it was a gear ago).
After applying we got an email pretty quickly asking to come in for biometrics. The address is on the website somewhere.
Then there's a couple of doctors in Paris that you can see (also listed on website somewhere). Once we were asked to go in for medical getting an appointment with them was easy.

Hi everyone,

I lodged my application via Madrid embassy (as I'm French) on the 24th of January, finished uploading all the documents by the end of february.

If anyone has some feedback on recent processing times, I'll take it :-)

Thanks !
