Second Stage Partner Processing Timeline Info

Hi All,

I am not sure how many of you are currently going through the process and would probably have any number of questions.

I have recently gained my PR this way and wanted to inform or indeed offer assistance at answering any questions for you.

I first applied for temporary partner processing on 22nd July 2008 - as a tip, it is a great idea to book in to see a case officer as opposed to sending your info in via post. My application was processed and granted on the day. (Saves a long wait via mail)

In 26th March 2010 I received a letter saying I was about to be considered for Second Stage and could I provide further info:
  • Stat Dec - Applicant
  • Stat Dec - Sponsor
  • Form 80 - Personal Particulars for character assessment

I sent this to immigration back in May 2010.

I thought the processing would begin on their receipt of my documents. It actually begins 2 years to the day since you commenced your stage 1, so in my case it was 22nd July 2010. I found this out as I queried why I had not received my acknowledgement card back from them as receipt of my goods.

Immigration stated that it would be "3 to 6 months from 22nd July"

In actual fact it was just under a month as it was granted on 19th August.

I hope this timeline aids some of you, and as I say, if I can answer any questions around this process just send them across.
