I too am regretting applying in Brisbane... Looks like I'm in for a long long wait... Good luck to all!
Hi all!

Such unexpected and great news came today... Visa granted! I'm ecstatic and in utter shock. Here i was just thinking today was going to be a normal day, I casually checked my email and there it was! I thought for sure I was in for a 12+ month wait being that I applied in Brisbane.

CO assigned: unknown

Date granted: 03 Oct 12!

On a side note, other then applying for bridging visa B, I didn't make any additional inquiry-type contact with immigration. However, I do remember that when submitting my police certificates, i attached a letter indicating that my application is decision ready. As many before me have indicated, this could be vital to getting a "quick" processing time. Maybe instead of calling immi, some could try writing a formal letter to the place they applied? I'm of the sort that formal documents addressed and signed have a stronger impact than a note in an electronic file saying that the applicant called- you know? Then the information on file would be in your words, not the impatient words of the call centre people.

Anywhoo, I wish the very best to all who are waiting. Xx

What is the average time from when you send the last documents to when you receive the visa.

Long time lurker on these forums, didn't have much to add until now but I can give an update on our timeline! I'm Aussie, partner is Mexican. Our case officer called today to confirm his visa will be approved We hadn't heard anything from the CO before this.

Date of application: 18 May
Nationality: Mexican
Visa type: Prospective Marriage 300
Onshore/Offshore: Offshore (sent to Ottawa, Canada)
Date CO assigned: late August/early September
Medicals submitted: June
Police check submitted: June
Date visa granted: Advised today (3 October) that it will be approved! Just got to submit one bit of paperwork to change the wedding date since we have to get married within 9 months and the visa will be granted way earlier than we anticipated.
