Provisional Partner visas grants in 2017-2018, by Country of Grant

According to a Freedom of Information request from the Department of Home Affairs in 2018, the numbers of Provisional Partner visas granted varied between a median time of 123 days and 446 days depending on the office at which they were processed.

Singapore appeared to be faster, with a median time of 123 days, for a total of 211 Provisional Partner visas grants.
Dili, in East Timor, seems the slowest, with a median time of 446 days, but for a total of only 7 Provisional Partner visas grants.
Washington, USA, was one of the slowest, with a median of 358 days..

Five Fastest Times:
  • There were 211 Provisional Partner visas granted at Singapore office in a median of 123 days.
  • There were 67 Provisional Partner visas granted at Tel Aviv office in a median of 128 days.
  • There were 101 Provisional Partner visas granted at Madrid office in a median of 140 days.
  • There were 17 Provisional Partner visas granted at Tokyo office in a median of 151 days.
  • There were 206 Provisional Partner visas granted at Seoul office in a median of 179 days.

Five Slowest Times:
  • There were 29 Provisional Partner visas granted at Moscow office in a median of 346 days.
  • There were 668 Provisional Partner visas granted at Shanghai office in a median of 353 days.
  • There were 502 Provisional Partner visas granted at Washington office in a median of 358 days.
  • There were 27 Provisional Partner visas granted at Port Moresby office in a median of 391 days.
  • There were 7 Provisional Partner visas granted at Dili office in a median of 446 days.

China is interesting with both slow and fast median times depending on the local staff:
  • There were 866 Provisional Partner visas granted at Guangzhou office in a median of 204 days.
  • There were 668 Provisional Partner visas granted at Shanghai office in a median of 353 days.

There's an entire thread dedicated to the US and they are vocal in their complaints.
Keep in mind how small a sample size of chats are and most only deal with their own country and even then it's only a very small sample of applicants of that country so they don't really provide anything in the way of usable stats.
Also depending on the country they just go off "someone say/people say"rather than facts and research.
Eg my wife was told it she got pregnant her visa would be granted instantly. I've heard countries times if someone marries a Australian citizen they are instantly entitled to Australian citizenship and you only need to provide a marriage certificate.
Facts are there are more applications than allocated planning levels. False applications increase the required scrutiny and also delays processing time.
I often hear people complain that they don't take peoples feelings into account, that obviously I'd required as applications should and must be looked at objectivity.

Someone who has time on his hands and likes statistics, and searching for facts.

That is correct, processing times vary for everyone, there is no set reason for any specific nationality to be delayed based on nationality.

As you see, some in India are fast, some are slow. This month alone we have seen 5.9 months and 15.1 months for India.

I saw one on the forum from Ghana recently at 5.3 months.

Most in the US however do appear to be slow, with the fastest from the US being 12.2 months in the month that the one above from Ghana was only 5.3 months..

At one point they had the most racist man in the party head of immigration. So says it all. Its common to see an african wait for 2 years than usa unless they have a criminal record of some sort or they are actually not from the usa.
I agree that Visas could be done faster, but Australia is reducing the numbers of grants, and the numbers applying are increasing.

The result is longer waiting lists. I just don't agree with you that it is down to the colour of the applicant.

From the 86 subclass 309 grants that I have seen this year (with 2 or more grants), the three countries that wait the longest, on average, are Canada, Iraq and the USA.

The fastest are Turkey and Fiji.

That does not indicate that the applicants colour has anything to do with it.
.
  • Turkey, 3 grants between 1.4 and 7.1 months with an average of 4.5 months
  • Fiji, 2 grants between 4.7 and 5.2 months with an average of 5 months
  • UK, 12 grants between 2.7 and 9 months with an average of 5.3 months
  • Netherlands, 2 grants between 2.7 and 8.6 months with an average of 5.7 months
  • India, 9 grants between 3 and 15.1 months with an average of 6.5 months
  • Germany, 5 grants between 5.5 and 14.9 months with an average of 8.4 months
  • Thailand, 3 grants between 4 and 10.8 months with an average of 8.5 months
  • Lebanon, 5 grants between 8.1 and 9.4 months with an average of 8.6 months
  • Canada, 10 grants between 6 and 18.4 months with an average of 9.5 months
  • Iraq, 2 grants between 8.8 and 12.8 months with an average of 10.8 months
  • USA, 15 grants between 10.9 and 18.6 months with an average of 13.6 months
Applications from Pretoria, in Southern AFRICA wait for over 2 years.

New and really need advise on 309visa

Hi everyone,
I've been following this forum for some time and I really do need any helpful advise that anyone can provide.

This is my story and apologies to anyone for taking much of their time

My husband is an aussie citizen and we got married in aug 2018 and applied for 309 spouse visa in mid Dec 2018. we had a migration agent in aussie who lodged our visa from aussie. We received an email from the CO in march 2019 to upload more pictures and original marriage certificate, but haven't received any news from immigration till date, or been called for interview.

However my husband and i had a few misunderstandings since 3months and now he doesn't speak to me. He said that he has filed for divorce in my home country as we got married in my home country, but i have not received any divorce papers yet, and that he has withdrawn my application as we didn't receive the visa grant by then.

Could anyone please help me with the below information? I am really desperate and would be really grateful.

1. He said he has withdrawn the application on June 28th. If he has, would the DIBP notify me or the agent? and if so, would the migration agent be obligated to notify me as i'm the applicant?

2. Should I inform the migration agent of this situation? as she never contacted me to ask anything about what happened between me and my husband. I'm not 100% sure that he has withdrawn the application as i didn't receive any news from my agent or DIBP

3. Is there anyone who has applied in Dec 2018 and received their 309 visa grant?

I've been trying to reconcile with my husband, but he doesn't answer or reply to any of my messages. I really want to work it out with my husband,and I'm praying that he hasn't withdrawn the application and that it will come through soon.


I appreciate anyone who can really give me an advice on what i can do.

Thank you!
