We had our civil wedding last June 2016, and will have our church wedding in Dec 2016.

Just to let you know - it does happen. My partner got his 100 last week, 9 months and 17 days. He was asked to do his Police check and two weeks later he got the email with the visa attached.

Has any of you been interviewed? How was it and how long did it take till you got the outcome?
My partner had a phone call and was asked questions he had already done in the application. I think they just check that you remember what you put down months before, it means you are genuine. Two weeks later he got an email with the visa attached.

Hi! I'm brand new here, so apologies if this is in the wrong spot...
I am Aussie and my partner is Spanish. He recently had his student visa renewal refused and has 28 days to leave. We were planning on submitting our 820 but on advice of a Migration Lawyer today are considering him going offshore to apply for a 309. as he doesnt hold a substantive visa we will have to prove compassionate grounds whilst he should stay.

So we are faced with option of short term solution submitting 820 and 'fighting' together or him going offshore and returning on tourist visa periodically whilst 309 is processed.

My questions are: is he likely to have his tourist visa refused if he has already been here on student visas for 5 years?

secondly, what is the feeling regarding approvals of onshore applications for those with cancelled or non-substantive visas?

We are split. He wants to stay and fight, I think short term inconvenience is worth the security of having a 309 granted (and hopefully then 100)

Its an intense and emotional time as I'm sure you can all appreciate. I would really appreciate any input anyone is willing to give

Suz

Hello All,

I am Australian and my husband is Spanish. He received an email today (March 14th 2017) to state that his grant has been approved after 5 months of waiting. Yay!

We applied for a 309 but were granted a 100 straight up due to being together for 6.5 years, married for 2 years and have a child who is an Australian citizen by descent.

*Applied offshore (via Madrid embassy) on 4 October 2016 for a 309/100.
*Received a request for Police checks and Medicals on 14 January 2017
*Police Check and Medicals submitted on 19 February 2017
*Visa subclass 100 granted on 14 March 2017
*He has until 22 Feb 2018 to enter Australia.
*We hope to arrive by November 2017.

My advice is to provide evidence and other information from all the categories but don't go overboard. In particular don't go overboard with photos. Follow your instincts on what to or not provide. I guess what worked in our favour is the length of our relationship and that we have a 2 year old daughter. I have also been told that the Madrid embassy approves the grants very quickly. Ours took just over 5 months.

This forum has been a great source of information and therapy for me. Thanks to all that I have been in contact with.

I wish you all the best in your grant approvals. I only read last week someone else say - It will come through when you least expect it. So get on with your lives!!

Angela

My wife applied offline from Abu Dhabi and the visa was granted within 4 months. She's from a high risk country as well (Thailand). I think it all depends on the evidence and individual case, but from what I heard most, if not all, applications lodged in UAE are processed very quickly.
