We emailed Immi twice in the past month querying why they seemed to be approving applications out of order and got the standard reply back each time. Not sure if it helped at all.

We were pretty lazy to be honest with the second part of our application so I was surprised there weren't any questions. Included all the financial stuff, and a few photos including some from our wedding in March.

Good luck to all those still waiting. It is a long 3 years but glad its finally all done!
Congratulations!

Congrats!! It goes to show that you should query why they are not processing in order and not why it is taking so long.

Did you email yourself or did you email it as your partner?

Emailed from my husband's account. On receipt of the first 'auto response' we thanked them again etc etc and commented that we appreciated the due diligence required but again reiterated the question as to why applications were being processed out of the queue and if they could provide some feedback so that we knew what the actual process was.

My response back

Thank you for your email.

Please be advised that there is a significant backlog of work in the section and our expected service standard processing time is currently in the 12 – 15 months range from the date when you became eligible for consideration for the permanent partner visa.

Please note that service standard processing times are aspirational and are not a guarantee that your application will be processed within the service standard.

Individual cases may be decided in longer or shorter periods, depending on a range of factors.

A case officer will be in contact with you if further documents are required in order for a final decision to be made upon the application.

Your patience in this matter is appreciated.

Yours Sincerely

Permanent Partner VIC

Hmm okay we didn't get that back. Just the standard auto reply that I again replied back too. I would keep emailing! It doesn't make any sense at all. Did you apply online or on paper?

They are totally avoiding my question and how they state they treat each case fairly and from eligibility date.

I applied online

Getting the same response as you. We're about 6 months in to our wait but hoping that something will happen in April/May next year. If it doesn't well...........

I am not good at waiting but the husband just seems to go with the flow.

You can alway keep replying and asking if they didn't answer the question or lodge a complaint with DIBP or your local MP for help.

I spoke to my local MP a few months ago and sadly I knew more about the process and delays than he seemed to comprehend. Couldn't understand that my argument was around the delay in second stage processing when we had already waited the 2 years! I've no issue with the due diligence required for first stage but I gave up pursuing that avenue. Was tempted to make comment elsewhere but feared we would be thrown to the bottom of the pile if I made too much noise.

I did reply to the first auto email asking for a direct response to my question and 2 weeks later it was approved. I was contemplating emailing again this week. Strangely last night I went to upload a new lease agreement as my husband had notified them he had moved 3 months ago. Changed my mind as its in my married name and my passport still in my maiden name and didn't want them to then ask me for all new copies of ID etc and then 2 hours later he got the approved email. Probably just a coincidence and it definitely just said application "RECEIVED". This morning it says FINALISED.

It's definitely a frustrating process but given we get to live and work in the same country we did put it to the backs of our mind for most of the time.
