And to think we never thought they`d get it done in the 5 months they say they aim for! We heard nothing at all from the embassy (apart from them taking the application fee) for the first 4 months after sending off the application. Once we were assigned a CO, though, it was all very quick. We had a few extra documents to supply (like originals of things instead of the certified copies we had already provided, even though the application asked for copies) and the medical to arrange. And no interview (I thought they were essential)! The visa issued is a permanent resident one, too (as we meet the criteria re. length of marriage/children from the relationship).

Visa granted : still waiting

Note 1: Was told in Jakarta (AVAC office) timeline was expected to be 5-7 months but initial contact from embassy should be within 6-8 weeks.
Note 2: Utterly useless staff at AVAC, she completely re-ordered our application even after I asked her (3 times) not to as it was already in the right order (same as the checklist which I received directly from the Australian Embassy in Jakarta - as it has specific Indonesian documents listed, such as KTP) - luckily I'd supplied an index and numbered all the pages tho, so hopefully Immi can still make sense of it. Secondly she asked me if they were "original photos and emails" (I'd supplied screenshots and printed photos), I said how do you expect me to do that when they are digital? She just shrugged at me. And finally she hardly spoke any English and found it easier to communicate with my partner in Bahasa Indonesia and pretty much flatly refused to speak to me in English. Not much good for an agency working for the Australian Embassy IMHO!

PS. Sorry mods for the extra chit chat on this post, but I thought it was kind of relevant and might be helpful to people applying in Jakarta.

CO assigned early June 2011. Told we needed to do an AFP check as partner had been in Australia for longer than 1 year. AFP check done in <10 days and posted to Jakarta.
Informed around 29th Aug that partner visa is ready to be granted so she would need to leave Australia.
Visa granted 5th Sep 2011.
Took 2 months less than we were told.
Thanks DMIAC! :-)
