PMV or 309?

Almost no PMVs have been granted worldwide in last 3 months.

During April, May and June 2020 only 598 Subclass 309 applications were granted.
In the same period in 2019 there were 3,501 Subclass 309 applications granted.

There may be a lot of applications, ready to grant, but being held back from final grant, until the restrictions end.

It seems that those that are granted might have specific compelling circumstances, eg: for a couple to reunite when children are involved.

Hey my 309 was just granted! Thank you for your reply!

They are still issuing visas! I want to share the update, and hope the people who are still waiting won't lose hope. This forum really gave me strength in my hardest time. Good luck everyone!

FYI, my timeline:
Lodged Application: May 2019,
RFI: Sep 2019, completed Oct 2019
RFI & health exam: May 2020, completed June 2020
309 Granted: Aug 2020

Congratulations. You say you were married with a child at time of application. I wonder if that helped. Were you together in the US or was the sponsor in Australia?

PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION!

Our official petition regarding offshore partner visa processing (subclasses 300 and 309) is LIVE! We need YOUR help to get 10,000 signatures before September 2nd.

If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident and can spare 30 seconds, it would be great to have your support added to the petition for parliament to process offshore partner visas fairly and quickly.

Signing this petition could help thousands of couples finally start their lives together in Australia. Due to inequities in the system (explained in the petition) offshore partner visa applicants can wait more than two years just to get their application looked at. This is an unreasonable amount of time and is resulting in incredible stress for couples and their children, many of whom have to live apart while their visa application is being processed.

If you sign, you will need to check your email straight after to confirm/validate the signature as otherwise it won’t count. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us hope of a fairer processing system!

Here's the link: 👇👇👇

I think you can stop spaming every post with your request to sign your petition, we have all seen it multiple times.
While your enthusiasm is admirable, your naivety is self evident.
Do you really believe that the Parliment beset with a myriad of problems , hundreds dead, thousands sick, a million unemployed, and a depressed economy, will give much attention to a petition from less than 5000 , let alone spending time, effort, and money overhauling the system.
As others mention timing is incredibly important when presenting these types of requests, and I could not imagine a more inappropriate time than the present to do so.
