I don't know where you got the idea you can't work on a PMV. You totally can. It's unlimited work rights.

kyliekinz, I'm so sorry to hear that. :/ It's a huge undertaking just to even apply, and I completely feel you on the money part. I really hope after speaking with Mark or the MRT that there's a better outcome for you. Sending good thoughts your way.

Getting a bit nervous of my own since the grants seem to be going out now quite frequently. Haven't heard anything from a C.O. still, and last communication I had was one I sent through the email thingy on the website just to notify them of my 600 grant and that I'd be traveling around Australia a bit more so they'd know to give me a heads up to leave the country if my VISA was granted. Nothing yet, though. 1-ish more weeks will be 7 months...

Thank you all for your well wishes I agree we've seen a lot of grants lately I'm crossing my fingers that we continue to see the trend for all the others still waiting.

It took about a week to get back my wife's (the Aussie) AFP and State of Texas back ground checks- looks like another 11 weeks until we get her FBI back. (I wish I had gone with my gut and ordered it back in July when I got mine... I had a feeling even though the guy at the embassy said I would not need it)

The good news is my CO.. told me today "Once I have received all 3 of the sponsor’s police clearances, I will be in a position to finalise the visa application. "

Sucks to think if we had that FBI clearance today we would most likely have the VISA today, but it is Awesome to know everything else looks good and is ready to go. So after 5months, 3weeks, 1 day... we wait some more..( about 11 weeks more)

That's great news that they are ready to grant when you get the FBI check! Hopefully not to much longer for you and the family.

Heats my fiancé sent off his FBI checks the same day as you…. fingers crossed it comes through sooner than 12 weeks! I'll post when ours comes through.

26 days till he comes back home, fingers crossed customs don't have a problem with all the luggage he's bringing back lol. We emailed immi to notify them of his arrival to australia but haven't heard anything back yet.

Hi! I am new here, and it's very overwhelming with all of the information (that seems to change case by case)----Just wonderfing if anyone can update me on Washington DC processing times. I applied A few weeks ago for my partner and my PMV and just want to be aware of how long we 'should' expect.

Thanks in advance if this has been a recent question it's just a ton of information to sort through

Hi falcorkle. They tell us partner visa processing times are 12-15 months so you have to brace yourself for that kind of wait. We're seeing approvals on this forum come in at about the 7.5 month mark, but you can't plan around that (even though we are all hopeful).
You can google the australian embassy in DC and check their status - navigate to th visas page there's a link to processing times. Note that the australian immi.gov.au still says 5 months for a low risk country.
