When I think about that, I think of the exact moment I am made aware of the news. Might be by email, might be by a message on my phone and it might be after a terrible day at work, or perhaps a really good day.
No matter which way we look at it, I know without a doubt that it will end up being a day I remember for a very very long time. I will also know that in that moment, the waiting and nights and weeks and months alone will start to fade into the past and all my thoughts will be of the future. Without a doubt, that always makes me smile. The other thing is, I feel lucky that I know at least one other person in the EXACT same position as me, and I am lucky that I have met and found and have found someone who to me is as close to perfect as I will ever know, and that this process is just what needs to be done to get the 'reward' of showing patience and trust in my relationship. So I am actually lucky to be in this situation in a way.

SO life is not perfect, but will it ever be? For a not so perfect life, waiting for that moment is tolerable, but of course can be hard to see sometimes.

I personally also use this time to practice my cooking and get better at a few things such as Spanish or improve my fitness, especially when my fiance is actually sleeping on the other side of the world.

Hope that might help.
I also hope we do hear of some news from successful applicants, especially from the same countries as our own inclusive of the timelines that they have experienced!

I LOVE YOUR POSITIVITY!!! you are 100% right and pple like you make us feel better everyday is 1 day closer and I really pray to god that we will have our loved ones in our arms very shortly hopefully for Xmas and New years.....Fingers crossed

We've been waiting since April and they've gotten EVERYTHING! I mean everything, they didnt even ask for medicals but we still gave it to them. We haven't heard anything since the acknowledgement 2 days after lodging. Mind you, my fiance is a Vietnamese student, studying in the US so maybe that might have something to do with it but its really ridiculous as theres no communication at all.

The communication is horrible! They won't answer any questions! I mean we paid quite a lot of money for this visa the least we deserve is our questions to be answered!

I got married this time last year and applied on 2nd of May this year so I don't think it makes much of a difference..
I will add we are both young..first marriege..no children involved..the embassy indicted that it should take minimum time under these circumstances but it hasn't..So I think it all just depends on what's happenin in Canberra getting the final decions ect..I think their very busy this time of year too
I did notice people who applied in June before the tax time got their visas granted in less than a month..

You're applying for a partner visa right? I'm applying for a PMV.

Hi NZlander,

We had to apply in Cairo as no embassy in Morocco and Cairo has responsibility for visa apps from Morocco.

Did you at least get an email acknowlegement of your Application - I was pretty excited to see that this correspondence had a name on it with actual contact details for a real person

I must say I also sent an email enquiry before we applied and they responded the next day addressing my question specificically without telling me to refer here or there instead. This gives me *some* hope.

We are apart - sob - and proudly sponsored by Skype and cheap(er) dodgy telcos. I lived in Morocco for about five months but had to return to Oz in July to recommence my job and get the ball rolling on the Application. I am going back to Morocco for two weeks in December which is making it *slightly* easier to bear.

I really don't know about the timeline, but I'm expecting a long wait - high risk country and all that nonsense. Likely the whole nine months they say. I am the kind of person who would rather be pleasantly surprised if it comes earlier than to get my hopes up about a short timeline and have my spirits crushed with each passing day

Hi, everybody. I just want to ask if anyone from the Balkans has been granted a partner visa yet?

I lodged the application (309 Subclass) on 13-th February, went on a interview on 20-th of March and submitted medical then. From then on, I haven't received any news, so I guess I'll keep waiting.

But, I would be relieved if I hear that someone that applied in Belgrade (as I did) get his/her VISA.

G'day, yes my wife submitted on the 20/ 02/2012,,,,,, interview on the 19 /04 . Not asked to submit anything further. We were told between 2 and 5 months from interview. That has just passed, not thinking about it anymore.

When it happens it happens,good luck. Nice to finally see someone else going through Belgrade,you are 1 week in front of us.
