Prospective Spouse Visa - Processing Times

I am going through the process of sponsoring my fiance's prospective spouse visa application, I am Aust citizen and she is Colombian. She currently resides in Colombia, myself in Australia, hence she has to apply through the embassy in Santiago Chile (no embassy in Bogota!). Just wondering if anybody has any experience of applying through Chile and the average processing times, or any other helpful tips they might have. Thanks in Advance. - Bruce

Hi Bruce,

I suggest you take a look at the family visa timeline sticky to see how long the PMV and other spouse visas have taken in general while you wait for a reply.

:) pmv 300

Hi Bruce I am From Colombia and also applied for a pmv subclass 300 in September 2011, My application was lodged in Chile, cause they take care of Colombian affairs.
I got a letter from my Case Officer 2 WEEKS later saying that we needed some extra docs(federal police check, my birth certificate with a side note of my divorce), which we sent shortly after.
I called the embassy in Chile and asked for my case officer and talked to her in two ocations first when she asked for the extra docs, and then again to confirm she got the currier mail and the documents arrived safely. The second time we talked she asked me if there was anything else that i would like to know and I ask her about the processing times... she told me between 6-8 months, I could feel she was irritated by my question cause normally no one calls the CO directly. Never mind that I have no clue really how much time it will take, but I would like to know more about your application if yopu like to share with me!!!
Thanks a lot!
Angie
