I am from Kenya, my wife is an Aus citizen. We have been in a genuine relationship since 2009 and got married in Aprill 2013 here in Nairobi. We were blessed with a very beautiful lovely baby girl in Feb 2014. We applied my partner visa 309/100 in July 2014 in Nairobi AHC. Submitted the PCC with the application. Not yet medical. No single word since from the AHC Nairobi Kenya.

As all of you here in this forum,my fingers are crossed for further communication like allocation of a CO, request for Medical and any other documentation, in case required. Lets us relax in the most frustration period in our lives in this wait and hear world.

Best wishes to everybody including myself.

Regards,
Hassan

Hi Hassali
If you read through other posters here from Kenya you can get a realistic idea of the true wait time, which can range anywhere up to 2 years for applicants from Africa.
It is quite normal not to hear from a CO for a long time.

Hello Jmac,
I've been waiting for my 309/100 for the last four months now. I applied in late May from Jakarta/Indonesia, sent all the required documents in and has been on the frustrating wait. It feels like FOREVER and very hard for me and my husband.

We haven't heard anything from our CO (hope it's a good thing).

Good luck asti. It's amazing how long it takes! All the best of luck and fingers crossed for a speedy reply for you! We haven't heard anything at all either. I figure this means we're just in a pile of visas waiting to be processed, hopefully we're moving up to the top of the pile as time goes on :)

Hey! Just thought I would share, I wanted to ask immigration something about our visa the other day (not important, just inquiry) and emailed the Aus High Commission in NZ, they got back to me saying that they don't deal with online applications, just paper.. and that I would need to contact DIBP. If that means anything haha :) (probably not)

Hi there all,
As you can see i'm new to this forum.
I am a British Citizen and my Partner is Australian, we live and work in New Zealand while we are waiting for my 309 Partner visa to come through.
We applied for the 309 Partner visa online via immi on the 24/08/2014.
We have contacted Australian Immigration in Australia and New Zealand because we have run out of attachment space and still have some important documents to attach.
Australian Immigration in New Zealand has told us that they do not deal with online eVISA's as well, so i am really concerned as to if we are wasting our time waiting and expecting a reply because they "Do not" deal with online applications and no one can give us answers about it.

Any ideas, suggestions or answers would greatly be appreciated.

Has any body sent a email to [email protected] and got a reply?

Thank you.

Thanks Jmac. Whilst our applications are piling up at their office, we're piling up here. LOL! *joking*

@ Charlie, I suggest, you have a thorough read of this thread, where you'll get a lot of attachment tips: http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...lications.html

As per my knowledge, you should be able to attach any number of documents, just make sure you abide by the file size and proper format (pdf always works). I

My partner is American and he applied off shore thru DC so anytime I need to ask questions I have to call America.

Oh WOW, okay I did not know that... Although... did you call TT Services, or the embassy? As far as I know, all visa processing in NZ is contracted out to this company: https://www.ttsaustralia.com/
Are they the people you contacted?

I will be keen to hear how you get on as we are in the same situation (Aussie and Brit living in NZ, applied for a 309 not long before you and we also cannot upload any more documents, we have some important things that need to be uploaded).
