There is no requirement as to when you have to move, but keep in mind you're going the PMV 300 route which means within 9 months of grant, you'll need to apply for the onshore 820/801 (after entering Australia at least once and marrying anywhere in the world). If you don't get an 820 grant before the 300 ends, you'll need to be onshore when the 300 expires so the BVA will go into effect and that BVA has no travel rights. You'll need to apply for a BVB to go offshore and be allowed to reenter Australia and these are usually only granted for short periods (say 3 months). Once the 820 is granted (need to be onshore for grant) you have full travel again but if you continue to live outside of Australia, they may question why you're applying for a partner visa which purpose is for living in Australia with your partner.

which passport was used when you applied?

Even though he hasn't lived in his country of birth for 17years. Hopefully this doesn't cause issue.

Let the waiting begin!

Hello everyone

need a suggestion

a day ago I have been granted 309 partner offshore visa.

My relationship with my partner nearly 3 years so I was expecting I’ll get 100 ( permanent resident visa)

should I ask my case officer who grant me the visa?

Is that a good idea to ask case officer?

thsnks regards

Was it de facto for at least 3 years with strong evidence proving it for the 3 years prior to application? If so, you can email the CO and ask for consideration but it's up to them if you met the requirements or not. It's an at time of application requirement so time after applying does not count.

Really hoping to get some grants through DC soon. Over 12 months with no contact feels like a lifetime 😄

Interviews?

Hello All,

I have a question I wondered if someone could help with. I applied for the 300 Visa in June 2017 from the United States. I have yet to hear anything. I believe I have submitted all the required documentation (and even did my criminal background checks and medical already - perhaps way too early).

I am planning to be in Washington, D.C. in June 2018. Should I update my application to let Home Affairs know that I will be coming to D.C. in case that would be a good time to be interviewed? I don't know how many people they are requiring be interviewed. It seems here that many people are granted Visas without an interview. I also don't want them to think that I'm trying to push my own timeline.

Thanks for any thoughts.

You can try, i wouldn't hold my breath for a response though. If you're application is fairly straight forward and you've got a lot of evidence uploaded, i don't think they'll require an interview.

They keep decreasing the processing times globally, but it doesn't seem to have affected our processing times . Very painful.

Yeah every time we see the global times decrease it gives us hope. False hope I guess &#x1f602; At what point can we contact our local rep/ immi department and try get some movement? After 13 months stated on the higher end of global processing times? Or is it more of a ‘just wait it out however long it may take’ scenario? Just curious how that works if anyone has input?
