Interesting question...just glancing back on the updates in this forum, it seems last year Feb/March and August/Sept were active months..so fingers crossed now that the holidays are over that things get moving again in Feb. Also, I follow a facebook group for partner visas in Australia and have seen only one offshore grant from someone who said they "applied from the US" in the last 2-3 months...not sure if the US embassy actually granted the visa.

I have also seen a similar pattern. Towards the end of the fiscal year (30th of June), it is likely they are using the quota to issue visas for the finalised applications. Once a new fiscal year begins in July, they would clear the backlog by issuing visas towards end of the calendar year.

Visa arrived

I've been lurking on this thread for info, so wanted to report my visa arrived this morning :-)

We applied Jan 2019, received an RFI in August, sent requested docs in Sept, and haven't heard a word til today.

Also, I was wondering about this, so I'll mention: my immi account status remained "initial assessment" - it completely skipped the final assessment stage.

Big sigh of relief and WAHOOOOO!!!!

Thrilled to share that I finally got my 300 PMV grant after 327 days!!
Applied 06 March 2019
No agent
Medicals and Police for applicant front loaded, sponsor not
RFI for sponsor police check on 06 August 2019 with 48 day deadline for sponsor FBI check
Given 9 months to enter country
Had been a couple for 19 months before applying. Were physically together in US for 6 months (didn’t have a lease together), then did looooong distance for 2 years, visiting every 3-4 months. Did updates to IMMI after each visit to show genuine and continuing relationship. No kids, no criminal or medical history, or visa refusals. Had a 12-month Visitors Visa used to travel to Aus twice during visa process.

Should be in Perth in time for our tickets to the Tim Minchin concert!! Pretty thrilled about that too! What a way to start a life down under.

Hi guys, I just received my husband's 309 after waiting a little over three months!
Applied Oct 19, 2019 -- totally frontloaded the app (though it took us over a month to do that);
Granted: Feb 03, 2020 (309).

No RFIs or further communication. We've been living together in a relationship since August 2017, married in October 2019, and are due to have a baby in 3 weeks.

You made the right decision in the end. I recall you saying you didn't mind a 12 month a wait..

3 months ended up a great result..
