Hi all! My partner applied for the 461 early Aug 2017 and applied within Australia. Still waiting on the visa which is very frustrating. Completed all forms and have lived together 6+ years, any others still waiting the full 26-28 months plus? Also congrats to anyone who has been granted recently 🙂
Thanks

[QUOTE=rajbir123;1965249]I applied for my 461 in july this year..my husband is in australia.can i apply for tourist visa now to visit him for a month so..please advice..
We think you can apply for the instant tourist visa and travel yes, but don’t be surprised if this makes the processing on your 461 even longer. As we’ve had a bad experience with the tourist visa.
Cheers

Hello

I applied 3rd July 2017 and have yet to hear anything, I’ve just been granted my third Bridging Visa B to leave the country and that’s until the middle of February 2020. It’s definitely been a looooong wait, I came over here on a ETA visa so I haven’t been able to work in that time. I am a member of a 461 group on Facebook and a lady had applied 2 weeks before me and has just had it granted so it should be close to our turn. It’s slightly frustrating that people applying in London, Auckland etc are having it granted within 6/12 months! Just keeping my fingers crossed I will hear something soon but I do wonder if I’ve just pushed myself back further by applying for another Bridging Visa.

Sorry I’m not sure my last response was accurate. My partner thinks you should not apply for the tourist visa at all. Sorry I wasn’t much help.

Thanks for your reply, well fingers crossed applying for the BVBs doesn’t have any effect on the processing times.. Also cheers for letting us know about the lady who’s had hers granted. Thanks again 🙂

I have almost the exact same timing as you- both application and BVB.
I do wonder if all my BVBs have actually delayed processing (on my fourth BVB, until February 2020)
I hope not. I'll post if I have any updates.
What's the Facebook group called?

Hello

It’s called ‘Partner Visa of New Zealand Citizen 461 visa in Australia’. The group is getting quite a lot of new members as people seem to be waiting longer and longer(onshore that is). I haven’t seen anyone on any groups who applied after me onshore be granted the visa yet so realistically I don’t think the BVB has delayed things. I believe around the time that we applied was when the government announced plans to change things up a bit with immigration and make it harder to apply. So I always assumed there was maybe a big influx of applications in order to be on the books before any changes were made. Turns out they didn’t make any of the changes they were suggesting anyway. The waiting time for all other visa applications seem to be getting longer onshore.

Since leaving the last post someone has commented on the Facebook page who applied in September 2017 and they’ve just had contact asking for another AFP check... that does make me think that the bridging visa B delays things.

I don’t think it affects it to be honest. I think it’s more they get allocated out to case workers and some case workers are moving faster than others.
