Hi everyone! I wanted to give an update earlier but with holiday travel and such...

Our 300 was granted this morning!!! I got the notification to leave Australia just before Christmas and our grant came through this morning on the 31st. Total time from application to grant was 12 months 11 days.

Thank you everyone for your support and advice!!! It’s been a long year. We’re very excited we can finally get married.

You have nothing to loose by asking your local MP for assistance, I personally received none, but other in this group have received quite a lot of assistance. It depends greatly on your local members attitude.
Also remember that the times are indicative only, not a guarantee, and as the website states;

"Circumstances that affect processing times
We assess applications on a case-by-case basis, and actual processing times can vary due to individual circumstances including:

whether you have lodged a complete application, including all necessary supporting documents
how promptly you respond to any requests for additional information
how long it takes to perform required checks on the supporting information provided
how long it takes to receive additional information from external agencies, particularly in relation to health, character, and national security requirements."
Hopefully if your MP is prepared to assist you , it may be possible to find out just how far your application has progressed since they last requested information.
Good Luck!

That's great to hear! 12 months for 300 sounds promising. I just submitted all my information on December 30th that was requested from me when they reached out for additional information. Curious to see how long they'll take from here on out.

Hello all! I just wanted to update that we received our 309 visa Dec 18. I actually kept it a secret from my fiancé and surprised him Christmas Day in Australia with the visa in hand. So I didn’t want to post on here until after I had done that and then I kept forgetting to do it until now. Anyway, it was a long process but I’m happy it’s finally over and that people seem to be getting their visas more quickly now. Good luck to all of you!

When we called the general inquiries number in August they told us that once we pass the 90% mark, we can contact them and get an update on our application. So I would maybe call them and ask about that. Doesn’t hurt to try.

We finally (FINALLY) received my partners state check and have submitted it today. *Only* took 6 weeks to get the results. I've been an anxious mess waiting for it to get here, especially since it is coming up on 2 months since they requested it. We did submit proof of application to them so they knew we were doing what they ask. But so happy to finally have submitted everything they asked for, and hopefully we hear good news from them soon.

Hey everyone,

So our ImmiAccount finally displays "Finalised" and "Granted" next to the applicant's name, and "Submitted" and "Approved" next to the sponsor.

One would think that a visa grant letter would follow however its been 2 full days since the status has changed above and we haven't received any correspondence in the ImmiAccount, nor can we access the "Visa grant details" section of our ImmiAccount (which looks like a new option) and we haven't received any emails (we have in the past for requests for information). Everytime we click the grant details section it displays an error message indicating theres been a
technical error.

We've logged a technical error ticket with the Department of Home Affairs, but just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and knows of the turn around times with the technical team?

Thanks in Advance !
