It has been a year since we have seen each other and dont know when will the department process the visa application for my partner.
Also secondly at the time of finalising prospective marriage visa 300 does the department need a letter for intended marriage from a registered marriage celebrant in Australia?
I applied for a tourist visa in order to see my partner during COVID - I'm a US citizen. The visa process is super delayed right now, but if you apply for an exemption after you apply for your visa and get it, that fast tracks your visa application. Very surprisingly, I got an exemption to travel to AUS to see my partner who I haven't seen in 8 months. Right after I got exempt, my visa was granted. So I'd say it's worth trying. It is rare to get, but I would say it's possible and worth trying if you get a lot of relationship support letters, maybe write a really good personal statement yourself as well. I provided extensive evidence to prove our relationship in the exemption application, as if it was a partner visa. I actually looked at partner visa requirements in order to figure out what I should include in the exemption app to authenticate the seriousness of the relationship. I'm not sure if it was all necessary, but I figured better safe than sorry. I also wrote a very vulnerable personal statement, which could help. Not sure if all of that is the key, but I'm not even technically de facto partners yet with my partner, so I had to apply under compassionate/compelling reason, and I still somehow got it.

I would like to know how you did this.
I have been separated from my partner for 7 months and I desperately need to be by his side.
Could you guide me though this? Please?
