I did notice people who applied in June before the tax time got their visas granted in less than a month..
I'll be married for 3 years next week and we have a baby together so i dont think marraige times makes a difference. We have been waiting since April with no contact.

But, I would be relieved if I hear that someone that applied in Belgrade (as I did) get his/her VISA.
And I am one week in front of you.
Hopefully we all get them around the same time.

Will let you guys know as soon as we get good news.

For the last 2.5 months I have been checking this forum regularly to keep myself motivated and don't give up hope. I came to Australia on a tourist visa and for the past 8 months haven't been able to work because of it. So you can all imagine how I felt when I got the news today.........

Date of application: 21 july 2012

Nationality: Dutch

Visa type: UK 820

Offshore/onshore: onshore Sydney in person

Medicals submitted (yes/no):yes with application

Police check submitted (yes/no): yes with application

Date CO assigned: no idea

Date visa granted: 28 september 2012

I am over the moon and so excited to finally be able to start working and contributing financially to our relationship!!!

I wish everyone who is waiting the best of luck and try not to give up hope....

From: Malaysia,
Applied: 09 Jul 2012,
Applied From: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,
Visa Sub: 309 Partner temporary Offshore,
Application: Paper,
Agent: No,
Police Checks: 09 Jul 2012,
CO Assigned: 10 Jul 2012,
Medicals: 07 Sep 2012,
To: Australia ????


Its been hell and back trying to compile all the documents. Started the process back in Apr when I sent in my request for my police clearance. We got our marriage registered in KL in May and that was a nightmare since he has been divorced and the certificate was available online the msian authorities refused to accept that it was a paperless system and insisted that a hard copy was required, caused a scene till they finally relented. Had to go to commissioner of oaths to get a formal certification of the divorce cert and a translator to certify that my husband understood the malay language form to register our marriage. the fact that Im malaysian and speak/read/write malay held no weight and I was obviously not entitle to translate for him. We then had to wait until he left back to Aus to get the divorcee decree certified because the comm of oath here refused to certify it without an original copy. I was only able to apply the visa after 1st July by which the price for the visa application increased.

As of now, Im yet to receive a reply from my CO ever since I did my medical. Im getting anxious. I am pregnant and Im hoping to get to Aus by Dec so that I can prepare for my baby's birth and Ive tried calling the number given and there is nobody answering. i just tried emailing them again today. Hope to receive a reply soon.



AAAAAAAAARGH IM SO PIST OFF WITH MY CASE OFFICER!!!!!.. DUMB B**** is claiming i did not send her any supporting documents when I did over a month and a half ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I COULD STRANGLE HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

HI Everyone,

I've been watching the forum for a while now, would love to hear any news from those that have applied for the 309/100 in ottawa.

My husband applied May 23rd 2012 and it has been a long tiresome wait apart, made all the more difficult by the fact that he is in Cuba(dont even get me started about all the extra hoops we had to jump through), with no internet, he is unable to work as he has got his exit visa( permission to leave the country) and just waits for contact from me everday as it is so expensive for them to call or even send sms.

This process has made my hair fall out and go grey and I would not wish this on anyone, the stress is constant and just worrying about his everyday safety and mental health is draining.

On the plus side we are over 4 months of waiting now and hoping that we will hear something sooner rather then later as my greatest wish is that he will be here for christmas.

Anyone who applied around the same time have you heard anything yet?
