Some people got it quickly, I remember someone telling us in the forum about visa at least a month ago and they applied around same time as me. I front loaded everything except 40sp Online (I actually found that its necessary from this forum)

At the end, I think it depends where your file is being processed. some countries are faster that other. recently I found out that Canada is a lot quicker!
Congratulations on your grant!

May I ask where you saw Canada is quicker?

Hi everyone, I have a quick question on whether I am able to apply 309/100 as a de facto partner if we won't be living together at the time of application as I will be working overseas but have previously lived together for well over 12 months prior to the application, meaning that there's a 'gap' of 1-2 years.

TIA!

That 2 month one from Canada was an unusual one.
Applied for 309 in May 2019, and got the the 309 and 100 in July 2019. (Together for 9 years with children).
2.6 months to go from 309 application to full PR is very fast. Most take nearer 2 to 3 years for that.

Others from Canada, at about that same time, were:
309 Finalised after 9.7 months, from Canada.
309 Finalised after 8.2 months, from Canada.
309 Finalised after 6 months, from Canada.
Compared to:
309 Finalised after 6.6 months, from India.
309 Finalised after 5.9 months, from India.
309 Finalised after 6.1 months, from India.

Each individuals circumstances can affect a visa time enormously.

Some of the faster 309's in 2019
309 Finalised after 1.4 months, from Turkey.
309 Finalised after 2.6 months, from Canada. Direct to 100
309 Finalised after 2.7 months, from Netherlands. Direct to 100
309 Finalised after 2.7 months, from UK.
309 Finalised after 3 months, from India.
309 Finalised after 3.1 months, from India.

Some of the slower 309's in 2019
309 Finalised after 17.8 months, from Hong Kong.
309 Finalised after 18.4 months, from Canada.
309 Finalised after 18.6 months, from USA.
309 Finalised after 19.6 months, from India.

If an applicant from the USA has a poor application, it could easily take longer than an applicant from Pretoria that has a perfect application.

It isn't only the location or nationality that determines the processing times.

Although, a badly written application from Pretoria may well end up slower than most applications from the USA.

From the info I've seen I can't be sure, as I have been looking at nationalities.
Some from Zimbabwe have been 16.2, 19.7 and 20.1 months
Others from Africa, have been as fast as 5.3 months.

One of the slowest 309's this year was from Denmark, Europe, at 29.6 months.

Hi so, what will be considered a poor or badly written application?

A well written one could be one that an Immigration officer has confidence in, and has no real question marks about being genuine etc. Having all the required relationship proofs included in the original application. Both Applicant and sponsor applications raise no issues.

A poor application could be one that creates suspicions in the mind of the Immigration officer, maybe where the applicant and sponsor applications show inconsistencies etc., or wordings might be ambiguous. Or even just not enough evidence is provided. Some even forget to do the sponsor application part, causing months of delays, while immigration wait for it to be submitted.

One might need further time consuming checking, while the other gets processed without too much difficulty.

There can be many reasons.

Imagine you are an immigration officer, and have two applications to look at. One is straightforward, one is confusing... which do you prefer to work on?
