we applied for my Husband's partner visa on the 23rd of June 2017 it is extremely stressful being apart for so long and needing to be together. The long wait and constantly seeing times increase adds more stress and upset to us and also to our family. We do not yet have children and want them. It is a horrible thing to be going through and not knowing from day to day when we will hear from them and be able to be together is devastating. I'm seeing couples who applied this year commenting saying they are shocked yet here we are 13 months later and still waiting. We can only hope ours is granted soon so we can begin our life together and get settled.

Me and my girlfriend applied on the exact same date!
Pretty sure the processing times were down to 11-13 months in May and now its up to 21-26. Its super frustrating I know exactly how you feel!
We were in contact with our agent in March as further information was needed, but ever since we provided it he has disappeared from the face of the Earth. Emails and phone calls are just a waste of time

/edit Ottawa office in Canada is dealing with out case

Its extremely frustrating we got an automated email in July saying my husbands visa is progressing but nothing since then we have a migration agent in Australia but everything will be through Delhi in India we nominated our agent to be the one who gets updates so he updates us whenever anything comes through or updates but we call him to find out if there's updates too along with sending all our conversations from WhatsApp monthly the waiting is awful and being alone is torture we are hoping ours goes through soon I found out today that a friends sister's husband got his granted and will be arriving in September they applied before we did so hoping we too get good news

Hi All,

Even I am awaiting my 309 visa and after the new processing time , I am not sure what are my options if I wish to stay in Australia once my current 600 visa expires in Feb,2019. Please suggest.

My local MP contacted my partner and I back. We had a meeting a few weeks ago about the processing times (prior to the 21-26 months change).
They said "there is nothing to be done, its a waiting game now". But I suggest you reach out to your MP as well.
It may do nothing, but its depressing to not try at least...
Hopefully we get some movement soon on some of the applications that are over a year in.
gotta keep hope

Would be interested to see the time frame for similar applications eg. Apply offshore, via London (UK), using an agent, young professional married couple, no dependants, front loaded application, no criminal history or visits to 'risk' countries and applied April 2018. Im hoping 8 month wait based off some research on forums etc

What is the usual way for CO get in touch with you first time? Is it only phone calls or emails as well?
I’m asking because I’m a cabin crew and flying quite a lot, so my phone not always has a service. For instance, if I missed a call, will CO send me follow up email or smth like that? Maybe somebody experienced similar situation 🙈

Hello all. I’m new to the forum. Just wondering, if i have applied for 309/100 in March 2018, with 75% of applicants getting visa in 10 month, I should look at these times as my processing times? Cause as it’s stated now the processing time has gone up to 21 month. But does this 21 month apply to people who apply now, or does it still apply to applicants who applied few month ago when it was 10 month??

They don't lock in processing times so what it says is what it currently is.

It 'should' be in those original times roughly but they can never guarantee that it wont take up to the new processing times because it depends on the complexities of each application.
