Anyone else in a similar situation?
Yes, we are. Applied in May 2016, my partner was asked to do his medical in August, which he did successfully but we have heard nothing since. It's just over nine months and we are just living in limbo.

Hey everyone, is there a list of people waiting for their 309, hard to see since there's no list of waiting applicants.

I'm gonna submit mine end of the month in singapore.
i've been told 12-15months for offshore 309 by my agent.

But another agent tells me 8months??? which is more accurate??

One of the migration agents on here said something a few weeks back that changed my perspective on it a bit.

Getting an Australian visa is a privilege not a right - when you think of it that way and consider the large number of applications for here the wait and the cost don't seem as bad....still frustrating but once I got out of the mindset of "I meet the criteria, I deserve this visa" to a slightly more humble view it makes the medicine easier to swallow.

I have seen processing times between 6 months and 12 months, I am at 15 months (offshore from India to aus subclass 100, 309) but I saw a partner visa take 19 on this site.

Is that the case for anyone else?

Limbo is such a great description. I'm so happy i found this site. I am nervous that we are waiting for nothing. But to live in Austraila is a privilege so when the day comes (in theory it should be this month) we will be so happy to finally be together and the 15 months waiting will be worth it

Not to derail the conversation but I don't see what is so much better about Australia than any other country. Actually I could reel off a fair few disadvantages.

Sure it's a privilege to live in any developed country and yet the process here is just so much more expensive/difficult than other comparable nations. So saying it's a privilege is really no excuse at all, the process is just too expensive and inefficient. Certain segments of the community will say it's a privilege but that's only because they're trying to push their own agenda, it's nothing to do with the actual opportunities available here.
