Date of application: 25 Jan 2011

**Received letter from embassy payment received 26 Jan 2011, and file number provided for future reference.

Nationality: CANADIAN

Visa type: PROSPECTIVE SPOUSE

Offshore/onshore: OFFSHORE

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes 1 week after mailing application.

Police check submitted (yes/no):Yes MARCH 8 2011
Date CO assigned: UNSURE

**Called on March 18 to ask if police check was good, advised yes but no case officer yet on file. Told that they would contact if they needed anything else, application is complete and just waiting now. I was advised by customer rep to call back in two to three weeks to see whats going on.

Date visa granted: soon hopefully
************************************************** *************************************************

Received call from Consult on march 28th in regards to error on application, fixed the error, asked if i had a case officer yet, and was advised that they were the case officer, and the application looks good. Told me that if I didnt hear from them they would authorize visa.

April 4 2011 Visa was granted to enter Australia by email, no need to send in passport as it is done electronically now no labels .

As for some tips...Try and send a complete package with as much evidence about your relationship as possible, the longest thing was the police check...it took about 2 months to do, try and get that first, and do a medical while you are waiting...either way they are good for a year from the time you take it. The whole process was quick though...Hang in there and it will come fast Good luck

DATE VISA GRANTED 08.04.2011

I WEEK!!!!

Onshore/Offshore: Onshore (Processing centre NSW)

Medicals submitted: Yes

Police records: Yes

Date CO assigned: 7/4/2011 (?)

Date visa granted: ....


I got a phone call on the 07/04/2011 from a lady I assume is my CO asking me to provide form 815.She said she was 'finalizing' my application and once she recieved the form it wouldn't be to long at all....
I faxed the form straight away, fingers crossed ...
I called immi today just to make sure they got my fax and was told that my visa was granted on the 08/04/2011 - one week (!) after I lodged it!
I should get the letter within the week via mail.

I'm so happy and so suprised that it got approved so quickly!In my Acknowledgement letter they said the current proseccing times for the partner visa were 9 months and I never would've thought that I get it so soon!

I spend a lot of time researching and preparing this application and fontloaded it with policechecks and medicals.I tried to make it as easy as possible for my CO,wrote a cover letter,made a table of content,devided all the evidence in sections with a short statement explaining everything.
Me and my partner have been together for about 1.5 years and also have been living together for nearly the same time.Problem was we couldn't prove it as the lease and the bills stayed in his name, that's why we got our relationship registered (NSW) just to make sure.

I wish all of you the best of luck that your application gets approved soon!

Nationality: Swiss

Visa type: Defacto Visa 820 (temporary)

Offshore/onshore: Onshore

Medicals submitted (yes/no): YES

Police check submitted (yes/no): YES

Date Application Submitted: 7/3/2011

Date CO assigned: Received an email saying application received on 9/3/11

Date visa granted: 11/3/2011!!! After being told it would be a 9 month wait we received it within the week.

NB: For those of you worried about the 12 month living together thing, we were only living together since November 2010 (we have been in a relationship since Nov 2009), but that is just 4 months before lodgement. We registered our relationshiop with NSW Births Deaths and Marriages as soon as he arrived in Australia so that definitley seemed to work. Also, we included with our application a cover letter stating why we could not live together due to his wok committments in Switzerland, mine in Oz, financial etc. I think that really helped as well. Good Luck to everyone!!

[QUOTE=fabi;30510]Date of application: 9 Feb 2011

Nationality: Brazilian

Visa type: Spouse (Subclass 309)

Offshore/onshore: Offshore (Brazil)

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Not initially. Submitted on 9Mar2011 after request from CO.

Police check submitted (yes/no): Not initially. Submitted on 21Mar2011 after request from CO.

Date CO assigned: 22Feb2011 I guess. That's when I got an e-mail requesting further documentation (Police checks and medical)

Date visa granted: 29/07/11

28/03/11 - contacted CO to check status. Was told that they were waiting on medical assessment. Asked me to check back in 2 weeks time.
13/04/11 - contacted CO to check status. Was told that medicals were received in Sydney on 22/03, and they are currently processing the ones received on 18/03. Asked me to check back next tuesday, 19/03, and mine should be finalised.

My CO has marked everything on my application as ''met'', pending only the medical assessment. Once this has been met, my visa should follow soon after.

16/04/11 - contacted by CO. Was told that my application is decision ready but my visa can only be issued in July. She suggested I applied for a tourist visa in the meantime and check with her end of June.

18/04/11 - applied for a tourist visa
27/04/11 - tourist visa granted.
30/04/11 - went to Australia.
18/06/11 - Asked CO for next steps. Since I applied offshore, I had to be offshore when the visa is granted. Was told that anytime after the 1st of July, my visa would be ready to be granted. I had to go to an offshore embassy to pick it up. Arranged to go to Auckland, sent travel itinerary to CO.
29/07/11 - Went to embassy in Auckland. Visa granted. Although I have applied for subclass 309, I was granted a permanent visa straight away ( subclass 100).

Happy:-)
