Partner Visa Processing Times April 2019

Immigration released the Visa processing times for April 2019, on the 23rd May 2019.

300 – PMV Prospective Marriage (subclass 300).
75% processed in under 14 months. (March was 13 months)
10% processed in over 21 months. (March was 21 months)

309 – Partner (Provisional) (subclass 309).
75% processed in under 13 months. (March was 15 months)
10% processed in over 19 months. (March was 20 months)

100 – Partner (Permanent) visa (subclass 100).
75% processed in under 15 months. (March was 20 months)
10% processed in over 27 months. (March was 34 months)


820 – Partner Temporary (subclass 820).
75% processed in under 23 months. (March was 21 months)
10% processed in over 31 months. (March was 28 months)

801 – Partner Permanent (subclass 801).
75% processed in under 19 months. (March was 20 months)
10% processed in over 25 months. (March was 26 months)

Although these figures show the global averages for the first 75% and the last 10%, of applications processed in April 2019, the average processing time is often a lot less than the first figure quoted.

The longer processing times may be due to incomplete or inaccurate applications, lengthy security checks from some countries and various other reasons.

I applied for a PMV on the 2/5/2018, what processing time do I fall under, the processing time when I applied or the present processing time.

The processing times quoted when you applied where the actual times for grants at that time.

The only processing times that apply are always the actual times, and these change every month depending on the slowest of the top 75% of all decisions.

ie: If there were 100 finalisations in the last month, and 74 of them took 3 months each, but one took 10 months, then the 75% time would be 10 months, (the longest time of the first 75), even if the majority took 3 months.

The actual time of an individuals processing is based on many factors, including how long the checks to their home country take. That can create major differences between different nationalities.

Am sure the checks takes a lot of time in countries that are considered high risk, am from nigeria and it been 12 months with no response. If I may ask what’s the check that are being done?

I applied for PMV in Sept 2018 got married before grant decided due to family reasons, requested to change to 309 visa in Feb 2019, I had request for further information in Feb 2019 for financial aspects, and again in March regarding my son(from previous relationship). All requested information sent straight back, heard nothing since, do you think i may have a grant soon as I'm waiting to just book my flights and go.

I have no idea at all, but it might vary between Nationalities.

I have heard that some people have to attend interviews for these visas, while some others do not.

I have heard that the neighbours of the families of some applicants get asked questions, but many do not.

It seems it can be very different for everyone.

No one can really answer how long an application will take. Yours is complicated by the change from 300 to 309, especially as the two visas are very different in requirements.

We were not certain which to go for, but went for the 300 as we felt that we didn't have enough to cover the 309.

As you have changed, I assume you do have sufficient, and I wonder why you did the 300 first. Immigration might wonder the same, and spend time thinking about it.

We had a date set to marry In May 19 in OZ but due to family reasons they could not travel for the occasion, he was home in Ireland for christmas, we grew up in same town and started relationship 3 years ago when he was home, long distance romance all that time, so we decided to tie the knot while everyone was able to attend as family means so much to us. So we changed to the 309 after marraige. Explained in statutory declorations. And attached pics of the wedding day ect.. we had no choice we really wanted to share it with our family.

I have a situation, what if while waiting for the PMV 300, the applicant got a job in Australia? (As per PMV 300, the applicant need to be outside Australia) I need advise, anyone?
