When we did the 300 visa, we got a message to do medicals pretty soon after lodging, but that was from Asia.

Why did you change from the 309 Partner Visa to the PMV300?

The 309 is the Partner Visa for couples, married or unmarried, who must normally prove a committed relationship for 12 months.

The 300 is the Prospective Marriage Visa (PMV) for unmarried couples, with shorter relationships, who plan to marry after they arrive in Australia. They must have met other, at least once, to get that visa.

Their process are really complicated and make ppl stressed... They don't consider how the couple feel. Or what obligations they have toward each other...
They care only about the paper work and evidences.. 😣😔

From just reading the forums on here. The Pretoria office is really slower than most. The kenyan office is not as slow. There's a Kenyan 309/100 active thread and if you scroll down the thread, it has a document that gives average processing times for 2017/2018 on all consulates/centres. It can give you an idea. Kenya doesn't seem to give interviews either. No one on that forum has said they got an interview, just email communication. Regardless, I keep my phone active waiting to be called. 😅


Is it true there is no interview from kenya?because I lodge my 300 last week on Friday and they request biometric collection on Monday
None that I've heard of. People who have posted talk of just receiving emails for FI or grants. At least from what I've seen here. The kenyan office thread is labeled "309 visa application from Nairobi Kenya". Yes health checks seem to be automated. I also did my police checks and submitted everything at once. They also reply to emails about 300, 309's especially if a question is very specific.

They do actually consider everything about "how the couple feel, and what obligations they have toward each other".
These are things we needed to explain in the application, and provide evidences for.

The need for evidence etc., is to weed out those who make fraudulent applications, and consequently cause genuine applications to be delayed.

An example of how these fraudulent applications can cause problems was highlighted recently with the following news report:

In the 2016-17 year, 26,247 Malaysians lodged subclass 866 visa applications, but only 168 were successful in that year. But the processing time for so many applications is causing the genuine applicants to have their grants delayed. Some of those 168 had been waiting for some years.

The news report on that also stated that genuine applicants felt that their “life chances were being obstructed”, by the delays caused by Australian Immigration.

However, if those fraudulent applications were not being made, the delays would not be there.


I recall reading in one article that the Malaysian government are now working with Australian authorities to try to stem this problem.

It is food for thought.
