Thanks for the response we applied for the 309 though. Sorry did not include this in my original post. I was just wondering if I should ?re-submit? the sponsorship form meaning i fill out an online now even though I have already filled out the paper and have attached it to my husband?s application. Sorry for asking this! I just don?t want to overdo it to the point that a CO will be annoyed

Is there a difference between the paper form and the online form? I have already filled out the paper form and attached it to my husband's 309 visa application (we lodged online). I was just wondering if I still need to do the online form?

Thanks in advance for your help!
DIBP prefer that if you apply online, the sponsor form is done online. Read it here: https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-...#tab-content-1

it says the same thing under each so here's the 309 link if you want to read it. https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-...#tab-content-1

I only keep saying it because it seems recently people have been doing the paper app for sponsors instead of applying online which makes me think they're reading others have done it and following along. It really is not the preferred method by DIBP and there has been word they are trying to change it so that you must do the online sponsor app (so it must be getting annoying).

So until they say otherwise, you should be fine. But think about the extra work on the CO to now have to open and read through a pdf instead of having all the information provided through an online form with easy access to what they need.

Thanks very much for your response I will just submit an online sponsorship form too. Should contain the same information anyway

Hi all! Been watching and reading through this thread since I found it, glad to find other patiently waiting applicants! My first post here... I'm in the US, engaged to an Aussie..We applied for the PMV 300 in early Aug 2017, frontloaded everything except the medical which I flew to Dallas for in early November. Hoping to hear something by next Spring ...the wait is dang painful !

Just curious if anyone's had any movement on their applications out of Washington lately?

I've never heard a peep out of them. Applied July 2017. I know its not a long time, but i would have at least expected some contact asking for further info, or whatever.

The wait time atm is around 9-12 months.

Hopefully this shouldnt be a problem

I check immiaccount daily. they've contacted me on that regarding my son's citizenship by decent, but not my wife's PR. You should be safe checking Immiaccount regularly.

Does anyone know....if my 309/100 visa is still pending approval, can I still go to Australia on another visa in the meantime? If so, which one?

Sigh...this whole process is tough!

Anyone else nearing the 12 month wait mark with their account only saying Application Submitted? No CO assigned, no additional information requested, nothing We submitted 17 February 2017 and submitted police check and medical soon after...still waiting.

My partner has now moved to Australia but submitted offshore so now we're anxious about her having to fly out of Australia twice in a short period due to tourist visa rules and then partner visa rules.

Anyone out there who submitted in the US had theirs approved lately? Need to hear some good stories!
