Who knows. But in the two cases I knew of obtaining a 100 visa directly, they are married for several years and have children.

You must at time of application for a partner visa be in a de facto and/or married relationship for three or more years, or at least two years if there is a child of the relationship. This means you may qualify to go straight to PR, but only if the CO decides your relationship qualifies, and you still have to wait the normal wait time for the first stage.

From the DIBP website:

"We consider you have been in a long term relationship, at the time you lodged your application, if you had been with your partner for either:

-three years or more
-two years or more and you and your partner have a dependent child of your relationship.

You will need to provide documents that show you have been in your relationship for this length of time and if applicable, that you have a dependent child."

Partner (Provisional) visa (subclass 309) and Partner (Migrant) visa (subclass 100)

If you should travel to Australia, please advise so." It is not a grant notice but does cheer us up so much.
It's nice of them to provide an update like that, never read of that before in this forum. Good to see that things are moving along. You've been waiting for about 9 months now right? Let us know if your hear any update.

Hi everyone, quick question for those of you who submitted a FBI background check and state police check. Did you get these notarized or certified in any form before uploading it to the application?
Thanks!

I did not. I don't think any documents need to be notarized for online submissions.

Just make sure you follow their directions and use one of the department-approved FBI channelers:
  • National Background Check, Inc.
  • National Credit Reporting
  • Telos Identity Management Solutions, LLC
  • Accurate Biometrics
State Police checks are fairly straightforward. FBI background checks can be obtained immediately. It took about two weeks for my State Police report.

After nine years marriage and living in the States, my wife (sponsor) just moved back to Australia yesterday. We intended to wait until my visa was granted before either of us moved to Oz, but after 6 months of unemployment and no (US) job offers, my wife applies to one job in Australia and gets a 6 figure salary and asked to start in two weeks lol. It has been quite a whirlwind since. I hope I have the same luck as her when I start looking for work in Oz.

I just hit the 10 month wait mark. I sure hope I get the visa soon
