If you can afford the flights, apply for a visitor visa while waiting.

An application for a visitor visa, with the reason given to wait out the PMV in Australia over the holidays, may even speed up a decision, if it is made at about the 7-8 month mark.

I have heard that some get the PMV instead of the Visitor Visa

Anyone got Grant recently? If so, how long processing?

Exclamation

Hi,

I applied for 309 visa back in 18th March 2016 from Sri Lanka. I'm planning to travel to Dubai for about 2 months vacation. I need the following to be clarified. Any help would be appreciated.

1. How should i inform the high commission ? Through E-Mail or is there a form to be filled ?

2. Will travelling abroad have an impact on the time taken for the grant ? (Will it take longer)

Thanks very much for that. It's great to know...

It would still be a huge weight off our minds if the Visa was granted in advance! Our proposed travel date to Australia is 8 months from when I submitted my application. So, it's significantly prior to the 10- 14 months quoted as standard. But surely they can process a straight forward Visa for a low risk country in 8 months... Please... fingers crossed!

Hi all,
I have moved to Australia around 3 weeks ago, my husband is still in South Africa waiting for his Partner/Spousal visa to be approved. We have been assigned a case officer, but because of his DUI in 2010 his character assessment has gone into the VACCU for further processing. Has anyone had any experience with this. I am missing him so much and really am looking for any support.

Over 12 months for me :-( really hard coping with the stress of an outcome, especially being alone, raising children without my husband.

Praying for a positive outcome soon for you and I both

We have been waiting over 7 months now.

Applied in February 2016, have provided medicals and police checks. My partner has completed a phone interview over two months ago.

Wondering if we should send an email/message to move along the process.
