Yes it was about 9 months, which felt like forever. I was afraid it would take much longer after seeing so many other people getting visas at 5-7 months...

Are there any partner visa applicants who applied in November 2014?

Seems like we had a lot of October applicants approved in a flurry of activity in March to cover the 5 month goal, but haven't heard much since...

Shmiffy even when you apply online it's the Washington office that will approve your visa as they deal with all applications from from USA and I think parts of South America.


Hi all,

Dropping in to see how everyone's progressing and it seems quiet at the moment. Happy to say we headed out to New Zealand and we had the visa email within 48 hours, coming back into Australia was a breeze Now we are onto finding work for my partner and planning our little celebration before are back online for the second part of the visa.

Quick processing wishes to all!

Exclamation 309 or 820 HELP

I don't know where to start...

I am American, my partner is Australian. We have been together for 3 years in October. We have been in a de facto relationship since Dec 2014 as I went there on a WHV and we lived together. Then we both traveled back to USA for 3 months. Now she is back in Australia and we are doing long-distance, gathering everything for a partner visa.

Original plan was for me to go there on an ETA and for us to apply for the onshore 820 in May.

However due to the increased price of the onshore 820, I am now looking at applying for the 309 and then still flying there on the ETA. I know the processing time out of DC is 12-14 months, however I was hoping to apply within a few weeks here... Fly there on an ETA, extend my ETA to a 600... then in December fly back to America for Christmas and wait for my 309 to be processed.

In regards to police/medical, I figured we should wait to do medical for sure... but police checks aren't too pricey and could do now just in case since the wait time is 14 weeks or so.

Can I apply for 309 and do my medicals in Australia on an tourist visa?

Will I face any problems being in Australia for the duration of my processing times on an ETA or 600?

Should I just pay the extra cash for the 820 to be able to be there on a bridging visa and have work rights? That way I don't have to worry about leaving the country or anything?

SO MANY MORE QUESTIONS ... what do you think? Either way I am NOT keen to spend time apart during a 12 month processing window... so If it comes down to it we will pay the extra 2.5k to stay together.

For a partner visa, you will need to provide evidence that you have been in a de facto relationship for 12 months prior to application. You can waive this if you are able to register your relationship in the state where she lives, or by getting married.
