Granted October 4th 2018
As agonising and devastating as it is to just sit and wait with your life on hold, you will get there in the end with patience!!! We'd almost completely given up hope, but it was THE best automated email I have ever received in my life. Hang in there, we all know what everyone has had to go through to share a life with their partner. Good luck to everyone and hope yours gets granted soon!!!
That's great Lyndiz87! You must be so relieved. That means all the May 2017's that have posted here have their visas and all of June and half of the July 2017's have at least heard from immigration. Processing is moving even if it is taking forever....

It's great seeing all the US grants coming through now ...just wish there were some coming through via London. I can't remember the last time we saw a 300 or 309 from there

Yes indeed. I am looking at Business sponsorship now because my Company wants me in Sydney in January and I have been waiting since March. Painful.

In a facebook group for the Partner Visa (a very young/naive crowd, generally) there have been several recent grants from London - they seem to be moving much faster than DC, with grants around 6-8 months.

Great news!! We just got the email, both 309 and 100 have been approved! We applied in the US on July 23, 2017. We were never contacted for additional information. Good luck to all, it’s a slow painful wait but there is light at the end of the tunnel!!

Well here's hoping. I'm into month 7 of waiting (via London) to hear about a decision on my 300. Flying over to Oz for a few weeks in November. My RMA was hoping we might hear something before I travel but I'm certainly not getting any hopes up!

Hi Noodlejaffa, I thought I'd put some context around the visa's you've seen coming through out of the DC office. We have seen 15 users that have been contacted by immigration either for visa approval or request for more information. No one has waited less than 13 months for contact. The average is 14.3. lyndiz87 who was approved the other day heard nothing for almost 17 months. What's worse, each month the processing time is blowing out by 0.3 months. i.e if the current average is 14.3 in 3 months time it will be 15.3. I know all too well how frustrating this process can be and I hope you're not being processed through DC and that your visa comes through soon. The canada or dubai threads are probably better places to vent 7 months of frustration. Those guys seem to move much faster.

I was genuinely congratulating those lucky to enough to have heard about their visa, not intending to Ďvent 7 months of frustrationí. As stated in my post, my application is going through London, not Dubai or Canada. Iím not worrying myself about hard facts, figures and statistics. What will be will be...I donít see the point in getting over excited about something we canít control.
