No chit- chat on this thread please - only visa timelines!

Please don't post any questions here or make any other posts. We want to keep the thread as "clean" as possible. If you are excited about getting your visa please start a new thread so everyone can post congratulatory messages.

Date of application: July 12th, 2010

Nationality: I'm Irish, he's Australian

Visa type: Defacto Partner

Offshore/onshore: Were living in Ireland at the time of application so applied through London office

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes, in mid August, 2010

Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes, August 19th, 2010

Date CO assigned: July 26th, 2010

Date visa granted: We were told at the time of application that it would be on average 3-4 months but the website has since been updated to say that the general processing time is now 5-6 months. We received an email in late August from CO confirming that all required documentation had been received and to expect to hear from her in November. Here's hoping.....

I emailed the CO in early November looking for an update. She responded that the our visa processing would be finalised on November 12th. That was yesterday but we didn't get any update yet :-(

Looks like the email was sitting in someone's Draft Folder all weekend as it was sent first thing on the morning of the 15th! I'm currently in Aus so I have to get out for a minimum of 3 working days for them to finalise processing and I will get it on my return into Australia. I am so glad this is all over for now and hope to never have to go through such a stressful process again!!! 4 months and 3 days.
