Hi everyone, I am in the stage of reading and researching as I'm planning to lodge a partner visa (probably 309). I just found out this amazing australiaforum site with so many useful infos with regards to applying for partner visa! I'm a PR and will be sponsoring my wife who is working in China.

I'm wondering if anyone can kindly add me to the wechat group mentioned in this thread? I tried but couldn't find where to PM others in the site. Thanks!

We have recently (7 November) lodged our 309 visa through a migration agent in Australia for my partner in China and have not heard anything. Wondering if anyone has heard or have granted their visa? How long does it take?

The average processing time for the 14,847 subclass 309 visas finalised in the 2018/19 year was 323 calendar days (10.6 months).
75% were done in under 391 days (12.9 months).

People often wait a few months before hearing anything.

Hopefully we will hear something soon. It hasn't been easy living apart!

Mine was granted after 11 months and I think the first contact from a CO to request further documents was 10 months after submitting so it could be a while before you hear anything

So there is nothing for the first 10 months after submitting? My agent told us we do not have to get police clearance or medical check done until they request for it.

Also, our agent lodged the application from Perth. Will it get processed in Perth or in China?

It varies.

I've seen a request after 3 months, then a grant after another 5 months. (they did their medical 7 days after they applied)
I've seen a request after 12 months, then a grant after another 2 months. (they waited to be asked for the Medical, a year after application)

We did the medical and police immediately with the application, for the 300 visa. Took a gamble hoping not to have to do it again.

Most seem to get done at the applicants countries embassy, but it can vary.
