Applied for Offshore 309 Visa- 19th of July.

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Next time I will see my partner will be 11th of March.

Has anyone heard anything from their CO's yet? Ahh such a long waiting game, my partner and I are going to probably call up next month to see how our application is going and if they need anything else.

I called yesterday ( almost 5 months) to see if they got my email about my cruise next month.. They told me that I can upload info like that and don't need to email.... I asked about my application and wait time... She gave me the scripted 12-15 months , if the CO needs to get anything from me or has any news for me , the CO will email me answer....

So no news here... Even though I tried...

We haven't heard anything recently either, though we're still waiting on the FBI check to come back, and that will be everything.
I'm getting worried about our timeline because it's looking like my hubby will have to come back to the USA in the new year without me, since we plan to fly to Australia for Christmas when my American visa is up.

We applied on Anzac Day... so there's people around our application date gettin approved, but there's no way that it's going to be us if we don't get the FBI check back.

Heats, did they tell you what form to use to tell the about things like your cruise? I don't have a CO yet (am patiently waiting until the 3 month mark to enquire), but I am planning to visit Oz at Christmas then again March if my PMV is not approved by then (that's the 7 month mark, so unlikely will be approved - plans were made based on the 5 month low risk timeline from DIBP website, stupid me apparently). I'll need to tell them about my trips, provided I can get a visitor visa.

here is what he said.

"Thank you for the travel information. For future reference, you may provide this information by simply attaching a cover letter explaining your travel plans to your application in your ImmiAccount.

In addition, the current average processing time for partner visas is 12 - 15 months. Your application is currently under assessment; the Department will communicate with you regarding your application on an as-needed basis.

We hope this information has been of assistance."

not a lot of info there...

Thanks Heats. I wonder on what they base their "average" processing time, since based on the approvals we see on this forum, it's significantly less. It would probably be more correct for them to say the 'projected' processing time, since average implies it is based on historical data.

may be a global average... I have seen some from the HR places people claiming to wait almost 2 years.. I thought I read it was against the law for them to cap and queue the partner visa but I guess that changed... they (the government) make the laws I guess they can change it.
