Congratulations to those of you who have just received your visa grants! I submitted my 309/100 application on the 28th October and am still in the process of uploading everything. Can I just ask whether you all submitted a form 80 (character reference)? I’m finding conflicting evidence about it and am wondering whether to leave doing it unless I’m asked. We’re front loading everything else - my husband has done his police checks and I’m about to do mine today and have my medical booked for Thursday. Really hoping ours goes through in 6 months like a lot of the other London ones are.

Its better to get it done as it is part of the character reference requirements. if you wait until asked your application could be delayed

Lelliot75 we did a Form 80 for both of us as advised by our migration agent. I would say always worth doing more than less. Good luck

Nothing since.
Been together 4 years and have 2 children.
Visitors visas denied (4 applications, ETA refused)
So yep +16 months
100 percent recommend applying onshore. Because onshore you’re waiting for an application only but offshore you’re waiting to see your partner .

309 can be frustrating. I felt drained. Sometimes I can convince myself everything will be just fine. That I will see him soon. Other times just so hard. It only had been 7months since we had the application lodged and Sept first week we left Aussie and already too heavy for me.. I can't imagine how I would be if it will take more than 12months like you guys😢 I honestly salute your patience guys, really do. Hope u all have your 309 soon and 100 a day after😍

Hey everyone, just wanted to share some good news. My husband and I got granted our Spouse visa 309 and 100 this week! Because we've been together for a long time they granted the Provisional 309 and then immediately granted the Permanent 100 visa as well. We were applying from Sri Lanka.

We originally lodged 21st May 2018, were contacted with request for more information (including medicals and police checks) 13th August 2018, we were able to supply everything within 6 weeks then amazingly got our grant only a month later!

We are extremely excited to get our grant in only 6 months (actually only 24 weeks = 168 days) as we were expecting it to take a minimum of 9-12 months (because we are from a "high risk" country). Thought I'd pass along the information to give other people hope, even though the "service standards"/processing times currently say 75% within 13 months and 90% within 17 months there are definitely some being issued much earlier than that. :-)

We used a MARA registered agent as our case had a few complex issues that needed to be addressed and the application was lodged online. We provided very detailed supporting information and statements. Hope everyone else here doesn't have to wait too long for their grants too. We're now making plans to move to Oz in February, YAY - very excited.

I am so sorry to hear that. It must be super frustrating for you and your family. Hopefully with the approach of 17mths you can start calling and asking for answers as to what the hold up is?

Must also be extremely frustrating that you are denied visitor visa's - do you think this is maybe attributing to the hold up?

That is the downside of applying offshore. We were lucky in the fact that my wife was with me in Canada on a WHV when we applied.

For my own curiosity, why is your partner and children not with you in Canada? I find it odd that a Canadian ETA was denied as well.
