Date of application: 26/08/2011
Nationality: British partner, Aussie citizen sponsoring. Together for five years, living as defacto for two.
Visa type: Subclass 309
Offshore/onshore: Offshore London. Presented in person at Australia House, payment taken straight away.
Medicals submitted (yes/no): No
Police check submitted (yes/no): No
Date CO assigned: Waiting
Date visa granted: Waiting.

I was told that it would take 10 business days for a CO to be assigned, and about 6 months for a visa to be granted. I guess it might take a little longer applying this time of the year as it's only 4 months till Christmas.

I have edited this post so that people won't get confused. The poster didn't put the year. 13/08 refers to the 13th day of the 8th month (August). The application was obviously made in 2011 but they've only put day/month and not the year.

A very good day

Date of application: 19 May 2011

Nationality: Applicant: Filipino - Sponsor: Australian

Visa type: Partner Provisional - subclass 309

Offshore/onshore: Offshore. V.I.A Makati

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes - 20 May 2011

Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes, NBI Clearance

Date CO assigned: Never received email stating Case Officer assigned.

Date visa granted: 01 September 2011.

My first post, but long time reader of these forums.

Awesome news. My wife got her Visa granted today. Only 3 months and 13 days wait. Fantastic.

We did not use an agent. We took our time with the visa application. I guess we completed the application over 5 weeks. I believe this was a very important factor why our application was granted in a short time.

We only received 3 emails from the Immigration department.
1. They received her visa submission.
2. They received her medical tests/results.
3. Visa granted.

No email saying a Case Officer was assigned. No request for interview.

A great day.

Thanks again to many people here for the information you have provided.

When I was about to lose all my hopes, my visa has finally been granted. It took one year and three days!!!
Since I've been living with my partner for almost 5 years, I was granted the permanent residency straight away, but it was a long wait nevertheless!

Good luck to everyone! :-)
