I applied for the 600 from the USA. It was actually processed in Australia and was approved very quickly. In about two weeks from memory.

I applied for a 600 last year and it was approved in 22 days. Not sure if that's still accurate but it was pretty straightforward.

"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."

I was just wondering, based on this information from Dept of Home Affairs site, do they mean 2 years from when you started dating or 2 years since you've been married?

The reason I ask is my husband and I have been married for a little over a year, but at the time of lodging we had been dating for 2.5 years and have a child together. Unfortunately we have been separated for a large portion of that time due to immigration issues and I doubt we would qualify for the 100 right away, but just out of curiosity. Does anyone know?

The website says you can become Medicare eligible once you get married on the 300 and have applied for the next visa 820/801.

You're only eligible when the 820/801 or 309/100 has been made. Hence why I said 300 applicants aren't eligible. If you've made an application for the 820/801 from a 300, you're considered an 820/801 applicant not a 300 applicant.

It's the permanent residency application that makes one eligible, so the 801 and 100 part of those applications. Hence why a 300 does not make someone medicare eligible.

Dating doesn't count. Needs to be de facto or married or combination of with proof to support the time before application.

That being said, sometimes COs don't deem the evidence enough and in one case they didn't count the combination of de facto and spouse and wanted them to be married for the 2 or 3 years prior to applying.

Ohhh ok that makes sense. I really wouldn't expect to go straight to 100 either way but I was curious. Thanks!

You never know. One chick from the US applied for the 820/801 and had only been with her partner for 1.5 years and no kids. Don't even think she knew her partner for 3 years and somehow they granted both the 820 and 801 at the same time.

Maybe you'll get lucky and the same CO will hand your PR out like candy too lol.

Well Washington seems to have gone quiet again. Hopefully there a few grants in May! We hit 14 months this week. Is there a process to follow if we haven’t heard anything within the current 13 months for 90% of 309/100 applications?

Redleg, Ronniedee, NYCtoaus, Cardude151 - you guys have any updates since being initially contacted in early March/April?
