Visa type: Partner Provisional - subclass 309

Has anyone else out there applied in Canada recently? Is the wait time really looking like 6-9 months? And is it worthwhile to try and contact the High Commission in Ottawa to inquire about the progress of the visa? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

All the best to everyone who's going through the same thing as us right now!!

Date of application: 1 August, 2011

Nationality: Taiwanese(Applicant), Aussie(Sponsor)

Visa type: Onshore Defacto Partner 820

Offshore/onshore: Onshore (Sydney)

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes, 1 August 2011

Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes, 1 August 2011

Date CO assigned: 9 August 2011 got written letter from CO regarding details as a Temporary Visa Holder

Date visa granted: 9 August 2011 wasn't expect that quick at all!!! Originally thought it's gonna take at least 3-9 months. But it all came together now

Have a quick question though. My student visa won't expire until March 2012. Am I still bound to the work restriction, or I am eligible to work as many hours as I want?

Thank you.
Cheers.

Offshore/onshore: Onshore - Lodged in Melbourne in person.

Medicals submitted (yes/no): No. Had medical in the US for WHV less than 12 months before lodging spouse visa. - Unsure if another medical is required.

Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes. USA FBI check.

Date CO assigned: N/A - Phoned immigration last week and was advised nothing had progressed yet.

Date visa granted: N/A

We submitted my husbands application with significant evidence to support our relationship and about 6 statutory declarations from his family in the States and mine here. We were informed by the woman who took our application that it would take at least 8-9 months to be assigned to a CO. She was most unhelpful and we had to pry information from her as to what would happen next, etc. I'm hoping we hear some good news soon!
Applied for removal of work restrictions on BV-A (form 1005) week before last and had an email this morning saying our request was granted. Still no CO assigned which is very disappointing..

My husbands visa was granted today, we're so happy. To top it off it's permanent. Will be making our way to Melbourne at the end of November. Thanks to all for your help!
