Some ppl have applied after us and got their visas in 4-6 months via the same office but I don't know why their dragging ours for so long! It's becoming so frustrating.
I came here on a 1 year tourist visa which will expire in October 18 and we're feeling so dejected now, as the hope to get it granted before my departure date is becoming slimmer and I really don't want to go back home and wait before I can be with my husband permanently again, now that the processing time is 26 months!
It feels quite unfair the way they do the processing as our case is extremely straighforward, friends from high school, married for so many years,
it's our first marriage, we have so many pics, msg, friends and family to confirm everything.
It's quite sickening really...
Sorry for the rant.
Hi All,

I'm very new to posting on this site. My case is somehow different. I'm an Australian Citizen and currently in Mauritius. We have submitted my husband's application for 309 Visa over 6 months now. Was wondering if there's any other applicants from Mauritius, and most importantly Shobz if you have any positive responses regarding your application.

Hi All,

My partner and I have had a 300PMV application in since July 2017, which is about to be changed to a 309 as we recently got married.

We received a request for a Marriage Certificate, AFP and FBI checks, we have uploaded the marriage cert, applied for both AFP and FBI checks, mailed the fingerprint card via express post today to West Virginia. We are hoping to have all information back to the DIBP within 2 weeks, after they have received the documents how long does it usually take them to assess/grant?

After 17 months of waiting my visa through the DC office has finally come through!!!!
So happy and all the stress seems to have disappeared.

I was only granted 309 and not the 100 like I have seen some other people get, but Im ecstatic either way!
Now researching the 100 process......

Good luck to everyone
