I agree - it has been sooo quiet. Last one was give just under 10 days ago... the process is painful... really, unfair. Don’t even think applying for a tourist visa is gonna make this situation less painful.

I agree not until the new year now.

Don't be disheartened. You will get your partner visa when time comes.

Meanwhile, surely you can apply for a visitor visa. I have seen few people from Asia getting visitor visa while waiting for their partner visas. Especially if the applicant is employed and have leave granted from work, it is easier to get a visitor visa. Even without employment, you can try. Need to show that the applicant has sufficient incentives to return to the home country before visitor visa expires. You can show property, other assets, funds in the bank accounts as evidence. Also, other close relationships/close-family in the home country is an incentive as well. You can give the reason for the visit as to be with your partner and see the country with your partner.

Only issue is my partner is from Lebanon - with no family members here in Australia and with the situation in Lebanon now, there truly isn’t any incentive to go back - except to his family. I’m sure it will come, just thought with our ‘simple’ case it would have been approved by now. We need to update our NOIM as it was due to be this Friday 20/12. It will be 8 months on christmas, since DOL.

Thanks for your advice though, appreciated.

The last two PMV subclass 300's that I have seen from Lebanon took 10.1 and 12.3 months to be finalised.

You mentioned doing a NOIM, so I assume you are on the PMV.

I have not posted here for a while. I’m still waiting on my fiance’s PMV 300 grant which we lodged in December 2018.
Our first call was in November (last month) and only my fiance was interviewed for about 15 minutes. He is from Syria and applied through Beirut. 2 weeks later we had an RFI to change a particular answer to a question on a form and so we did and submitted instantly. Since then, we have not heard anything. Most people I know who had lodged in December or before have already got their grants so I think our turn should be any time now. We really didn’t think it would take a whole year but here we are.. still waiting on that golden email.

Yes, it is for PMV 300. Thanks for the stats. hopefully we are amongst those who receive it within 12 months. agent said status is still 'initial assessment'. if that even means anything...

Your the third person i know that lodged in DEC/JAN 19 that received a call in November, I'm sure you will receive your one soon. I heard they only call the sponsor if they are not convinced by the applicants responses, so that's a good sign - i guess. InshaAllah not too long left for you.
I think years ago PMV was much quicker, but the increase in price hasn't deterred genuine couples from applying for PMV and i guess that was not budgeted for.

The processing times has been updated still to 75% at 17 months.

Patience is a virtue they say....
