PMV and 309 Timeline for Washington, D.C.
 
Please check below and make sure your info is correct (and complete as you want it to be - if I don't have an exact date you applied and you'd like to keep it that way for privacy reasons, that's absolutely fine!)

Also, if you're on this list and you did NOT apply for a 300 (Prospective Marriage Visa) or a 309, let me know and I'll take you off the list.

And if anyone would like to be added - just say so and tell me your CO's initials (if you know), your application date, whether you applied for a 309 or a 300, and whether you applied online or via paper. Thanks!

Also, please note: the date format for this thread is the United States date format, so 4/9/2014, for example, is April 9, NOT September 4.

The good things we can deduce from this list are that very few people are up to six months' wait (with the exception of cheesy. :(). So the ~5 month average PMV processing time from DC still *appears* to be mostly holding steady. Hopefully we'll start seeing some grants soon before these five monthers turn into six monthers!

My guess is the slowing of the grants is due to people being on vacation and/or the Australian election and we might see some grants coming soon.

What else can we deduce? Well, ML is one busy woman! :p Haha.

CollegeGirl 09-06-2013 03:40 PM

Removed a couple of people listed incorrectly. Anyone else? :)

bjch 09-06-2013 10:29 PM

Me. We're on a 309 although I hate seeing myself at the top of ML's list.

MrandMrs 09-06-2013 10:42 PM

Thanks for all you do CG to keep us updated.

I swear its getting harder with the wait. Limbo is not a fun place to be. :(

cheesygarcia 09-07-2013 12:33 AM

We applied for the 309 too, hoping to go straight to 100.

Ditto. It would be a huge blow for our plans if we didn't go straight to 100.

CollegeGirl 09-07-2013 01:54 AM

Oh wow, okay. You aren't at the top of ML's list, bjch. There's someone who's been waiting a couple weeks longer than you that turned out to be on a 309 too so I took them off the list. Man... so I guess we're actually ML's longest PMV waiters, MrandMrs! I hope that means we're up soon!

CollegeGirl 09-11-2013 06:18 PM

Added another week onto everyone's waiting time above...

MrandMrs 09-11-2013 08:30 PM

OK what did I miss here...?? What and how was another week added to our waiting time?? I know I miss read something CG? The person longer than Bjch is still waiting?
