Subclass 309

Could anyone help me, last Sept 2009 we filed a subclass 300 (prospective marriage). Immigration told us it will take 9-12months for it to be process. Last January 2010 (4 months after), my husband & i got married, so we inform the immigration to progress our application to subclass 309 (Partner migration). We send them all the documents required. I'm just wondering, do we have to wait for another 9-12months since we progress it to Subclass 309 or is the duration of the process will continue even if we change the application status. Looking forward on your advice. thank you guyz

Hi Iris,

First of all, congratulations for getting married I don't think this change will make the processing time longer. The original time they gave you is the longest possible time that it could take considering the number of cases they have to process.

The 300 and 309 visas have similar eligibility criteria, and if they have already been looking at the PMV application, they could then immiediately tick off the overlapping 309 criteria you have alreadt provided. I have read that they are processed in stages, so if the application 'passes' the relaitonship criteria, they move onto the next aspect, which may be health, for example. So, your application may have already passed some stages, meaning re-assessing it as a 309 application should start where the other left off.

This is just what I think and have read from various sources, so to be absolutley sure, you should contact your case officer, or even just give immigration a call to find out
