Hi Everyone,

Sorry in advance if my questions have already been answered elsewhere.

When applying offshore in the U.S., does Washington deal with all visa applications? Is it based on where you reside in the U.S. as to where you are processed?

Also, does there seem to be a difference between the wait on a 300 compared to a 309? Not sure if I have my visa categories correct, but basically if you are defacto compared to married, does it take longer for approval?

I gather from the posts above the wait time is around 9-12 months?

Thank you in advance.

I'm not entirely sure if it's the same for everyone but my partner applied for PMV 300 from New Jersey on August 1st and we haven't heard anything yet since then. I called the Ottawa American Service Centre who I was told deal with our application and they told me it's likely being processed in Washington and will take an astounding 12-15 months which shocked me as i believed it'd be around 6 months. I don't know what to believe anymore but it's definitely not looking like the visa's going to be finalized any time soon. It seems to me like anyone who applied in 2016 has had little to no luck so far.

Fingers crossed for all of us. I basically submitted by medical and police check along with uploading the application documents, which was maybe 2 weeks after submission. Thought it would be beneficial to have everything done, but of course that only helps if the application is being processed in time and within 12 months :/ Will keep you posted if I hear anything.

Hi Nervous Sausage,

Thank you for your reply. Sorry to hear that you, along with others are having quite a long wait and without contact at all. I really hope things do get moving. I look forward to reading some positive posts on here in the future with good news! Hang in there!

"Health requirement health clearance provided no action required
All health examinations required for the specified visa subclass have
been finalised. Once this person lodges a visa application, additional
health examinations may be requested where circumstances have changed
or additional information is provided to the case officer."

So I guess we are in the home straight...?!?! Eeeekkk!
I got similar health declaration. What exactly you were asked to do,after application got lodged with them?

I have been reading another forum out of curiosity. Apparently it is sitting around the 12 month mark Hopefully, it will eventually change back down to the 5-7mth mark. But at the moment, it is taking a while to process these visas

Any updates on people waiting on their 300? If you haven't had a recent grant, how long have you been waiting now?

We got our grant a couple days ago!

In total it was a 8.5 month wait.

I thought our case was extremely simple and straight-forward (no kids, no previous marriages, perfect health, no police records, lots of evidence, etc.) and everything was front-loaded.

Congratulations! PMV or 309?
