Talking Subclass 309 Visa granted in 19 days!!!!!!!

My partner and I received our grant letter today! After so much hard work and being away from my family with no job or money we can finally start our lives properly!!!!

Thank you to everyone on this forum for answering all my annoying questions and for all the information it was so helpful in the application process.

I can't believe how great Pretoria are with processing applications! We still cannot believe it took 19 days

Other embassies like Berlin, London, Phillipines and US get a truckload more applications than other embassies like South Africa too.

As we know they can only process a specific number each year. The not as busy embassies seem to have maintained their service standards.

Shouldn't more applications = more staff?
