As you said that she asked you stupid questions like why you were far from each other in a photo, what else seemed weird to her? And the estimation of 12-13 months because of an old case means you will be granted sooner because of the old case? Estimation of 13 month is short in her mind? 😱
Thank you
Hi Maryam,
I think they are trying to clear old cases to focus on recent ones, when she asked for the documents to be sent asap it seemed like she wanted to get rid of my application because its been there for nearly 12 months.
I guess she's seen it all she's seen 4 month visas and 18 month visas.

It would be safe to assume 300 should be quicker than 309 because with 309 you have to prove marriage. Where's 300 marriage will occur after grant of visa.

But the processing times for 300 & 309 seem the same

I know people who done 309 and got granted a visa in 4 months and people who've applied for 300 and got grated a visa in 6 months, it is harder to prove marriage and I see where you coming from but the CO said its all about evidence the more you upload the more likely you'll be granted a visa in a shorter period of time.

Hi Everyone,

My fiance and I received phone calls from our case officer today (Her name is Imane). She called my fiance first and asked him many questions (including stupid questions), his phone call lasted about an hour, mine lasted about 30 mins and it was just basic questions e.g. how we meet, where we want the wedding, living, study and work details and etc

What worried me was the fact that she is still asking for more evidence, she asked me for more photos of us going out and etc and Ive already sent over 20, she said that in one of the photos (which was with our siblings) that we were standing far away from each other? and I told her height factors require that as I was the one who was taking the photo, seemed pretty stupid to me.
Another thing she requested was evidence that we are going to have a wedding here, she said if I can put in a deposit for a venue or something like that and I told her that isn't possible as it requires both of us to look at the venue and decide together, I told her I can send her screenshots of wedding venue inquiries and photography etc and she said that would be sufficient and asked for them asap which I sent after the call.

At the end of the phone call, I asked her if she can give me an estimate of when the visa will be granted she said she cant give me an exact answer but she said because its an old application it would be between 12 to 13 months and she said don't hold me up to this.

I really hope it comes out soon even though I just sent through documentation but I feel like its at the final stages and I wish everyone hears some good news soon.

Similar thing happened with my wife, but the interview last for half an hour only. So the officer spent 1.5 hour just conducting interview for both of you. This is a reason for long processing time
