Depending on where you or your partner is from and how much evidence you supplied at lodgement your first contact should be within a year. most countries within the first 6 months.

if you haven't front loaded your application with medical and police clearances that will be the first email from immigration to look out for. if you have uploaded everything and they dont require anything else from you you may not get any contact at all until you get your grant.

Make sure you keep uploading documents as often as possible to show a continuing relationship. and make sure your sponsorship application is lodged asap, as all sponsorship applications will be processed first through the Perth office in Australia. once the sponsorship application has passed the screening in Perth your application will get sent to the applicants country for processing

PS. Sponsorship application is not a Form 40sp

Keep in mind i am not a migration agent this is all information i have gathered and read up on since the changes in July 2018.

Your application is at the New Delhi office. And according to the document for Offshore approvals. Its around 223 days which 7.4 months. The Berlin office which is 191. And I have heard most people for the Berlin office have a Visa Granted in that median stage timeframe from this document. Hope this helps. Document link below.

No one can be sure. The median for your area appears to be 7.4 months, and that means that half the grants will be done in 7.4 months or under, and half will be 7.4 months or more.

I have seen 309 decisions take between 4 months and 21 months.

True nothing is 100% but if he creates a good application with lots of evidence he can be closer to that timeframe. Medical and Police checks from sponsor(AFP) and applicant upfront. Continued monthly updates of evidence(Photos, Screenshots of chat, facebook). Joint Bank accounts and Wills, Super Annuation Beneficiaries. Travel boarding passes (very important and helps a lot)

Looking at past applications for Berlin office from this forum they have been very close to the median time frame. Small percentage over.

Going by the freedom of information documents on immi site for 2019 there are Global 244,000 applicants at this time, 11390 refused at 15months. So most applicants under 15months with no complications don't get refused, above 15months is a worry. Just going by statistics and giving everyone hope.

Complications can mean anything unusual.

Reasons for Partner Visa Refusals

The most common reason for visa refusals is failing to provide enough, and the right kind of, evidence with your application.

Fake documentation is another major cause of a visa rejection. It is also a cause of delays in some applications, where a specific country may have more fake documentation that others, and cause extra checks for everyone from that area.

Not replying to documentation requests in time, is another cause of refusals.
Under Migration law a visa application can be determined based on your submissions with the application. They do not need to request any further evidence from you. They can reject an application even for missing Police Checks, or Medicals, if they wish to. Most times they will ask, but if your application is borderline, they can choose to reject if some requirements have not yet been uploaded.

A visa application can also be rejected for criminal history or health problems.

Visa applications can also be rejected if the sponsor has already sponsored two applicants during their lifetime, or if a second application is decided within 5 years of a previous application.

If a really good application is done, with nothing against it, then it should be in the 50% under the median processing time, which you said was 7.4 months for his location.. (median being half under and half over)

Some recent 309 grants this year.

From Canada. 309 granted on 05/01/19 after 18.4 months.
From Pakistan. 309 granted on 11/01/19 after 10.2 months.
From UK. 309 granted on 26/02/19 after 9 months.
From USA. 309 granted on 12/03/19 after 12 months.
From USA. 309 granted on 15/03/19 after 12 months.
From USA. 309 granted on 21/03/19 after 11.2 months.
