With a bit of luck you might be able to come home together after Xmas.
Good luckl
My PMV application was lodged in June 19(date the immigration acknowledged to have received by them). My partner wrote to my CO last Saturday to inform her about how much he needs me for assisting him in our wedding preparation this coming February 15, 2014(in God's grace). My CO however wrote back to him yesterday(Thursday) and informed him that my application is actively assessed and it takes 9 months to process. She said we are on the timeline. I noticed that applicants from US have 5-6 months waiting period ,but what about in the Phils. , where I am now? By the way, I am a Filipino, my partner is a true-blue Aussie, we lived-in together for a year in Australia but i have to come home to apply for an offshore visa and I was here last January 12, 2013. Although my partner visited me last April -May 2013 , we know just like almost all applicants here the pain from separation. I always believe that if this is God's plan for us, we will be together soon. We pray every night after we talk on skype. That is our secret of staying together -love for each other,faith in God and stay happy with a SMILE.God loves us all.

Processing times everywhere are going up exponentially. For the last year, the Philippines had the quickest processing time of any other country, faster than the US - we were seeing people on this Philippines thread get granted in as few as three or four months earlier this year. Now it looks like processing times have gone up for you guys - as it has for us in the US. Many of the US applicants have been waiting 6 or 7 months at this point and are still waiting (me included)... In fact, we went a whole month and saw no partner visa grants whatsoever for US applicants on this board, while grants were still happening everywhere else... it was crazy. They seem to have started again now, though, thankfully!

I wouldn't necessarily assume you're going to end up waiting 9 months, but if you plan for that, you can be pleasantly surprised if it happens faster.

Hi Gretz 57
9 months more seems a bit excessive, that would make it 13 months to process, which is more than there 12 month time frame.
If you read some of the other post you will find that people from the USA have a long wait as well. It seems to be the same for most places.
Don't panic too much it will happen in due course, it did for me and my wife from the Philippines, took about 18 months because of health questions. We have just celebrated our 24 the wedding anniversary so it was worth the wait :-)

This is what I received from the immigration yesterday as I emailed them last week regarding our application, I kept on checking the website and I am not sure if they've been updating it as you can see it is still on August 16 applictions for 2 months already, hehe


"Our records indicate that your application is currently being assessed.
While the average processing time of Partner Visa applications is 6-9
months, this is indicative only. Individual cases may be decided in longer
or shorter periods than the service standard, depending on a range of
factors, individual circumstances and the complexity of each case.

Should your case officer require any further information, they will contact
you directly as soon as possible."

So I guess our application is under assessment already right?

No assigned CO just as yet, but still having our hopes up that we will be granted on or before December. (Gave them a massive file, hope that'll do, lol)

I will be coming home to visit my partner this November, took a 2 week annual leave at work, can't wait to go home! :-)

Hi MarieBaird as what I know a visitor visa only take a week, and yes they grant a 12 month if I'm not mistaken its a multiple visa entry. If they are satisfied on the requirements you submitted it's not impossible they grant your visitor visa quick. Hope this help

Hi MarieBaird if you are lucky enough to get a visitors visa granted to you they are usually issued for a stay of 3 months at a time. If you are really lucky you may get a multiple entry visa valid for a period of 12 months, but each stay is only for 3 months. This means you have to leave Australia and come back again.Going to New Zealand for a short break is a common thing for people on a multiple entry visa as when you return the 3 months start again

Hi there!

I'm from Philippines. I have lodged my offshore partner visa last oct 23 at via center makati. I received an email the following day saying that they have received my application already and requesting for NSO Documents. I dont know what documents they were asking for but i sent them my birth certificate and marriage certificate. Then the lady i met at CFO (married to australian) said that i need to submit our cenomar (certificate of no marriage). She also told me that she got her husband's certificate of no marriage from NSO which is new to me because i know her husband is Australian. That's why i got confused if i really need to submit both our certificate of singleness/ no marriage and if i can get a copy of my husband's at NSO office here. also where am i going to submit or send my husbands certificate of single status? thanks!

Hello MarieBaird, you need to get the nso document that your CO is askingfrom you direct to the nso site. You will pay at the bank and the nso will directly send it to australian embassy in makati. But i doubt that you can get your husband certificate of singleness at nso because he is not filipino. Nso document is for filipino citizen only. ( someone ple correct meif im wrong) You are familiar to me im sure we are both in one fb page about filipina living in australia. Pm me if you have time. Good luck and god bless you marie.
