Yeah we all know that until now it has been incredibly slow but maybe with this online application they will start speeding things up slightly. So someone who applied last year might have to wait 12-18 months. People who apply from now going forward might get theirs in 9-12months. Anyway nobody knows for sure, you ca always wish though :-)

I wouldn't count on it. Processing times are increasing, not decreasing, unfortunately. The disparity in quoted processing times on this thread is because you are comparing apples to applies - Onshore processing is 13-18 months. Offshore processing depends on the embassy.

In person or by post doesn't matter in regards to partner visas. What matters is onshore (Australia) or offshore (an embassy).

Hi Craig. Not included the Medical Check & Police Check from my country as I understand both record only valid for 12 months and the processing of the visa takes at least 9-12 months. Hence I did both check few months after the application lodged.
