Very excited to start life with my husband and dogs in Aussie.

Alright - Visa application received in London this morning. A lovely man by the name of "Darren" has signed for it.

And the waiting begins...

Hey. Has anyone applied to London around September/October heard anything yet? Trying to get an idea if we need to apply for a TSS instead.

Hey guys,

Has anyone heard any news recently? Still debating whether to apply off or onshore.

I applied start of June 2018 - heard nothing. Starting to get a little frustrating given at the time of application 90% were processed within 13 months.

I read that onshore is even worse - unless you can get a bridging visa with work rights I'd say it's a big risk (assuming you need the income!).

Wow June 2018 😮 Shit I’m hoping ours is done in 13 months or less - I thought we were giving ourselves plenty of time!! Flights & accommodation all paid for already 😫

Does anyone know if you can apply for the 600 12 month visitor visa, while waiting for the 461 to be processed?? I’m thinking worse case we might need to do this then fly to NZ when it’s ready to be granted...

I don't see why not. It can be done for a normal PMV or Partner visa application from other countries. No guarantees of course.

No harm in trying. Other than the $140 cost.

You would need to word the application just right though..

Hey all,

I've been watching this thread for a while now and thought I'd drop myself into the conversation.

My partner and I applied for the 461 in London at the end of September 2018. I'm a dual UK/NZ citizen (although I've not lived in NZ since I was a kid but applied for a NZ passport a couple of years back) and she's British.

Our application fee was slightly incorrect when we applied as we'd filled in the forms months prior to sending them and it had seemingly changed during that period. We heard from the embassy approximately a week later with them requesting the correct payment which we of course paid immediately but have heard nothing since.

From the top of my head the evidence we supplied was - joint bank statement, bills addressed to us, photos of us together through the years, flight bookings, joint invitations (weddings etc.), letters from both of us detailing how we met, how we split the bills etc. police record checks for my partner.

I wish I had more to add other than that but much like all of you we're still waiting and becoming more frustrated by the day. I will of course update when we hear anything further.

Good luck.
