sorry for the harsh comment. but i observed @Jande comments on all the threads and it is frustrating.
Not everything I say is negative, but if immigration are not granting any PMVs at the moment, there is no point saying they will.

Some PMV holders can get an exemption, which I have said should be requested. One did recently, after I mentioned it and it was granted.

Sometimes people have to be realistic. You can't just tell everyone that their visa will be granted don't worry.

Especially at the moment, when so many things are up in the air.

You say I assume things without any legal backup. I read things and see no PMVs getting granted, and say it. Immigration now say that they have insufficient PMV grants to give times. It ties in with what I have read.

I am assuming that 309 grants might be reduced due to COVID, and it is best to consider that these may end up taking longer. This is feasible, based on grants seen on this forum in April 2019 and 2020.
12 in April 2019.
3 in April 2020.
(excluding the direct to 100 grants)

@Jande they say clearly in the email that they are prioritizing temporary visas for those who are in the exempt categories,and although PMV is a temporary visa,and we provided evidence of immediate family, they still wouldn't want to finalize it.
our case was just waiting for the final decision at cairo just before all this mess started but they were very slow and not cooperative.

For quite some time JandE has kept this group abreast of the trends in processing times of various visas.
His efforts are greatly appreciated by the vast majority.
He freely shares his knowledge with others.
To join and immediately attack him because you don't like the truth is pure ignorance.
If you have nothing constructive to contribute maybe this is not the forum for you?

Offshore Prospective Marriage Visa (subclass 300) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: Unavailable due to low volume of applications.
Mar 2020: 13-17 = 75% took up to 13 months. 10% took over 17 months.

Partner Offshore Provisional Visa (subclass 309) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: 13-17 = 75% took up to 13 months. 10% took over 17 months.
Mar 2020: 13-21 = 75% took up to 13 months. 10% took over 21 months.

Partner Onshore Temporary visa (subclass 820) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: 21-28 = 75% took up to 21 months. 10% took over 28 months.
Mar 2020: 24-29 = 75% took up to 24 months. 10% took over 29 months.

Partner Offshore Permanent visa (subclass 100) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: 23-27 = 75% took up to 23 months. 10% took over 27 months.
Mar 2020: 21-34 = 75% took up to 21 months. 10% took over 34 months.

Partner Onshore Permanent visa (subclass 801) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: 10-19 = 75% took up to 10 months. 10% took over 19 months.
Mar 2020: 13-21 = 75% took up to 13 months. 10% took over 21 months.

I wonder if any PMV's were granted in April?

I also wonder how any reduction in visa grant numbers might affect the processing times. Speeding up some of the easier ones, but not granting any of the more complex ones until after the travel bans are cleared?
Now that skilled visas are not issued any longer, I feel they might look at clearing the partner visa backlog before July. Again, that doesn't mean blind approvals. Some cases take longer and others don't. There is a reason and background to every case like the ones applying onshore via student and tourist visas vs PMV and 309 arrivals? Who knows..

I have seen a larger than normal number of 309/100 applications being granted direct to 100 recently. That seems to indicate Partner visa applications with longer term relationships may be getting priority.

I actually just got my onshore partner visa 802 and 801 approved in the same day!
Started logde on 17 May 2019 and I went home to my country on 28 May and came back by end of July 2019 due to prepare my departure for good to Australia. My substantial visa still was still valid at that time. I received my BVA on 29 of October 2019. Got case officer contacted through email for AFP clearance on 8 May 2020(both me and my partner as sponsor). Got our AFB on 20 May 2020 and lodge immediately whilst our international police check still in process. Surprisingly got my 802 and 801 on 21 May 2020.
I actually follow all the discussion in Australia forum since 1 year prior our visa submission, it does helps a lot on the preparation part. I think it not just relay to case officer, but to provide as complete as possible all evidence and all legal documents does help the case officer to asses and process visa faster.

Thanks for sharing madamaja
Just wanted to check that wasnt a typo. You got your permanent visa in 12months?
Did you mean 820 partner visa or 802 child visa?

We lodged 820 in Sept 2018 and recently got asked for the AFP like you.

Ah ya typo. It meant to be 820 instead!
Yes, got my Permanent visa in 12 months from the time we lodge our partner visa application.

Good luck to you and hopefully you got the visa finalised soon!
