Hi there,
I am new to this thread.
i just wanted to know if there are any other people who have had experience with the 2nd stage partner process?

i have currently temporary residency visa 820 and has recently filled out and sent the forms in for the 2nd stage process in feb 2013 and was eligible in march 2013 with all the papers requirements.

The processing time is said to be 6-8months, I was wondering if anybody got their application processed sooner or have encountered any problems with this as i am feeling nervous in this regard considering my country does not gives e-visa which means it is a high risk country a/c to diac website........

I suggest you start a new thread as this one is for posting timelines.

anyone coming from China who can comment on the timeline for a spouse visa? I'm an Aussie citizen, and my wife (who is Chinese) and I are thinking about moving to Aus from the US. As I understand it since we now live in the US, she will need to also get an FBI background check which might add some time to completing the application too.

I'm not applying for jobs yet, but will be in a few months, and I might apply to some jobs in Aus as well as here in the US. If I get a good offer and we decide to go, I'd like to know how long things will take.

No one can answer that for certain for you. You'd be looking at six months, bare minimum, though, regardless of where she's from. Not a period of time an employer would probably want to wait.

What you'd probably want to do is get a job offer, then try to take her over there on another visa type and apply for a spouse visa onshore. This visa type takes longer, but you'd be together in Oz while you wait and she would have full work rights if that's something you're interested in.

Your other option is to apply with her offshore in the US. She could then join you in Oz on a tourist visa while it's processing. However, if she only gets a 3-month tourist visa, she'd have to go back offshore again for the remainder of her processing time. Even if she does get a longer tourist visa, she'll have to go offshore before her visa's granted - but it can be to Bali or NZ or wherever is cheapest, as long as it's out of Australia. She would be unable to work while in Oz on a tourist visa.

Honestly, the FBI check is the last of your worries (and don't forget she'll need a state police check, too, as well as a police clearance from any other country she's lived in for more than a total of 12 months in the last 10 years). You can get that in advance of applying if you want to, so it doesn't have to delay your application. But the FBI checks from what I've seen here are taking most people 4-6 weeks.

Of course, tourist visas aren't guaranteed, either. There's always a slight chance you could get a case officer who could look at the fact you're married, decide she's not a genuine tourist and deny her. Sigh.
