My wife and kids (from Thailand) got their Partner visa grant today. The details:

10 Feb 2016 - submitted paper application at Bangkok VFS, included police certificates

15 Jun 2016 - request for health check ups

28 Jun 2016 - submitted health results

In October decided to apply for Visitor visa to come out over Nov/Dec while waiting.

18 Oct 2016 - submitted Visitor visa application online

10 Nov 2016 - Granted Visitor visa 600 (3 months, No Further Stay condition was NOT applied. We deliberately ticked 6 months on application giving an open ended return date, but immigration called my wife on the day of granting saying they were confused since indicated dates of travel would be 3 months 'did she make a mistake ticking 6 months?' My wife said it was mistake.)

Sent couple of emails to immigration informing them we applied for visitor visa and update on partner visa, but no reply.

15 Nov 2016 - Confirmed flights, arriving on 19 Nov. Sent another email to immigration saying will be in Australia on 19th.

16 Nov 2016 - Partner visa granted (both 309 and 100). My wife received call and email from Immigration explaining to use 100 visa - the visitor visa can be ignored. Also said they could not refund Visitor visa (we didn't ask for it, nor do we care at this stage). Latest date of entry is 3 Jan (when I got my AFP police check done).

19 Nov 2016 - Our family starts life together in Australia!

Thanks for advice and info on this forum, and good luck to everyone waiting.

Me and you did the exact same thing and having exact feeling! Btw, for your medical, did you have to respond to a series of questions first before generating the referral letter?

Hi there, thanks for the response!
9 - 12 months seem very very though and on the other hand people are getting granted their visas from 5 months to like 2 years time range!?

Yes absolutely, very tough indeed when it goes over the 6 months wait and worst when it's over 12 months! My fiancee is coming on holidays here in Mauritius for a month this coming Dec 16/Jan 17 (it's her country of birth too), and so from Feb 17 onwards I would be really impatient!! Btw, for your medical, did you have to respond to a series of questions first before generating the referral letter?

Sorry it was my typo! It meant to say 9 - 12 months still seem very "rough" and in fact people have been granted in the range of 5 - 24 months!? It surely is tough and rough!.....

I did asnwer questions online before the medical referral letter was generated. It is now sitting in my application account under Medica. When I open it, it says " this person is required to go through the medical examination such and such..." and there is a button to export the referral letter. I have not done it yet. I am planning to complete both Medical and Poilice clearance in coming December (4.5 months since the applcation submittion), as I was told the initial entry to Australia after the grant of visa will be dependant on the validity of those two.

We uploaded all documents including medicals and police checks. Don't know if they will need something else! I guess they would have asked for something by now! Who knows!!! Will be 8 months soon and nothing so far. I don't even know if I have a case officer!
