Hey guys

A while ago I posted on this forum regarding Partner visas and since then I've been reading this thread and seen a few things change in terms of timelines etc so I just want to double check my path going forward.

My Situation
I'm a NZ citizen and have been working in Aus for the last 6 years. I've applied for a 189 Skilled Visa and it's currently being processed having recently completed my medicals.
My partner of over a year is Indian, lives and works in Delhi, India.

Going Forward
Once I attain my residency we will be looking at getting a partner visa for her.
We have every intention of getting married and can definitely prove that we've been together for over a year.

Questions
What brought about some doubts is she was told by a friend who has contacts in the department in Delhi that it would be quicker through a partner visa(married), as quick as 3 months.
Given what I've read on this thread I'm finding that hard to believe. Do Prospective marriage visa get processed slower?

Given our situation would going for a Prospective Partner visa be faster than a Partner Visa (if we got married before applying)?

Thanks guys, Your help is greatly appreciated

Hey valer,

Unfortunately you friend is very wrong about the current processing time frames. Both PMV and partner visa applications have the same processing time frame. As per the AHC New Delhi website, they are taking 8-11 months to process the applications. Below is the link from their website:-
CURRENT AVERAGE PROCESSING TIMES - Australian High Commission

Which application will get processed faster- neither of them are processed any quicker than the current speed of processing unless obviously there are compelling and compassionate reasons. The current case officer allocation time frame is 270 days (estimated) from the date of application.

Which is the visa for you- Depends on how much evidence you can provide of your relationship together. If you are doubtful about the amount of evidence you have, go for PMV as it is much less paperwork required compared to a partner visa application.

Partner visa application (on de-facto grounds)- will require the applicant to have lived with their partner for a minimum of 12 months at the time of application. Couples who register their relationship (QLD, NSW and a few others do relationship registration), 12-months living together requirement doesn't apply to them.
Partner visa application (on marriage grounds)- will also remove the 12-month living together requirement but the applicant will still have to provide strong evidence showing cohabitation and sharing of finances, social context, etc.

Make sure you read the partner migration booklet before applying for a partner visa. It'll give you an insight on what the PMV and partner visa is and more importantly on how to prepare your application. The approval of the visa depends on the application. Below is the link:-
http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/1127.pdf

Please do ask if you have more questions. Hope this helps.
Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Valer welcome to the forum. I can see that you've already done your homework and good on you.
There is no such thing as a visa being approved in 3 months especially de-facto, married or PMV. You are looking at 12 months to 18 months processing.

Sometimes it feels like everyone know someone that works in the embassy or knows someone who knows someone.

One my husband's ex co workers said a friend knew someone who worked in the embassy and would have "no problem getting a tourist visa" needless to say he had a problem.

It is very rare to see a visa processed in 3 months if it did you would go out and buy lotto. Alot of embassies are processing around the 9 months these days and some are longer than that. There are more and more applicants which means longer processing times.

Exactly! AHC New Delhi is taking at least 10 months to approve the visa and New Delhi processes the visa faster compared to embassies from other high risk countries.

Although no harm in dreaming

Hi Becky
Sorry to Bogart this persons post but you mentioned about compelling and compassionate reasons. I am 45 and had a test done for fertility and its low so my Dr wrote a letter advising this, as we are desperate to have kids. My migration agent sent it in with our online paperwork but said they couldn't ask for expedite on the case until we had a case worker. Would this be correct or should I get them to push again?

Hey Sonakshi,

Unfortunately I don't have a lot of knowledge of what is or isn't a compelling and compassionate enough circumstance that could lead to a faster visa processing.

Maybe the seniors here could help you. Sorry I don't want to tell you something that might be incorrect information.
Seniors, please help! Thank You!

Good Luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Infertility is not a compassionate or compelling reason to get a visa expedited. Sorry to be harsh but do you know how many couples in this world have infertility issues? It is becoming alot due to couples now waiting till later in life to have children. I am sorry about your infertility issues but unfortunately will not be seen as compassionate enough for DIBP.

Usually they will only expedite if it has to do with death ie. cancer. DIBP specially say that pregnancy is not a reason to expedite a visa, therefore infertility will not be either.
