My partner and I have been waiting for almost 18 months now for PMV 300. How much longer is one expected to wait? Our agent emailed the embassy about a month ago and their email was very generic. Who else here has been waiting for the 300 since 2018 or has been granted recently after a long wait?

This video might help shed some light as to how our offshore visas are being processed and which ones are on hold.

I posted this on 2 facebook groups, one kicked me out and another didn’t publish it...not sure why they got sensitive about it!

Anyway I know I am frustrated like you guys that RECENTLY ONSHORE has been taking less time to process and grant than offshore, granted they don’t live far away from their families (this message right there is probably why I got kicked out of one group 😂 )
Don’t despair people! It might start up again to normal processing time by the end of this year, due to covid. (I am not an expert, but just following how slow it has been and preparing myself mentally), but don’t lose hope or patience. It is a delay, and I know some of you have been waiting for over a year or more and running out of patience. Just keep your faith and patience, inshallah things will get back to normal soon! This message is to bring awareness not hate or put you in a bad mood...I’ve been waiting for 309 since last year...so I am in the same boat as you guys

When you consider that the offshore 309 visas are normally processed much faster than the onshore 820 visas, your statement saying the opposite is puzzling.
  • 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).
  • The average processing time for the 26,118 subclass 820 visas finalised in the 2018/19 year was 497 calendar days (16.3 months). 75% were done in under 626 days (20.6 months).

Just recently, due to COVID, with the apparent reduction in visas being granted from overseas, to stop people arriving in Australia, the situation does appear to have changed around temporarily. But this appears to be a purposeful reason.

But once it is resolved and international travel is permitted again, the offshore partner visas will probably return to getting priority over the onshore applications again. Unless of course people complain and someone decides to make it more equal.. Maybe get the average to 13 months for each.

Please read my post again...I said it is only a delay due to covid that our offshore visas will take longer this year. I don’t think you read my post correctly. But I said exactly what you said in different words...
