Kinda like sitting still and watching everyone around you get on with life while you are in a constant "hurry up and wait" frame of mind!!
Oh you read my mind... this is exactly what i am feeling right now...
I keep trying to remind myself that I’m one of the lucky ones - in that my husband is in the US with me, we are healthy, and we’re not in any danger in the states - so many couples have so much less.

That being said, it’s incredibly frustrating knowing we’re hitting 9 months and our status hasn’t changed, our police/Medicals are going to expire (and they didn’t come cheap!) and that our life is completely on hold. The long waits for US applicants are ridiculous!

Atleast you have a hope of getting visa process within a year (sry didn't know whats ur visa subclass). I am almost near to 16 months waiting for my pmv to get finalised... so hel frustrating to stay away from your partner for so long and life becomes completely on hold...

Yes, I’m trying to be as positive as possible - I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be apart!

It’s scary and stressful though, in its own way - and a lot of things we’d like to do (start a family, for one) is on hold due to the visa process.

Has anyone thought to reach out to any media about the long waits that Americans are encountering? Surely it would be a interesting piece for the Aussie media.

No offence but why would it?
It's been a issue for many years now for many countries it's only an issue when it affects the individual. For example did you care about it 2 years ago?
Most people think you just get married and your partner can just come over.
Most never learn the difference unless they find themselves or someone they know going through the process.

America has done it's fair share of immigration quota's and outright bans. About time we got the same treatment from other countries. The Aussies I have spoken too are not too worried about the length of time Americans have to wait given their experiences with the US. They tend to prefer Canadians, as Canada allows them into their country easier than the States.

My husband's partner visa 100 was approved today! We applied offshore back in March 2017 and his 309 was granted in July 2018. We applied for his second stage for PR when it was available in March 2019 and didn't expect to hear so soon so it was a fantastic surprise to get this morning. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear.

Exactly this! Having gone through the US system for my husband, we were able to enlighten our friends/family here about the process. People really don’t know.

With all the attention/discussion in Aussie media (and politics) about immigration, id think that sharing the info on waits and process - for all applicants, but the angle would be the Americans - would be interesting and beneficial.
