Hi,

My partner has recently applied for subclass 309/100 visa from overseas and has been advised by the agent that her visa might take upto 18 months to be processed.

I would like to know :
  • When should we expect a case officer to be assigned to her case
  • What to expect from the case officer when they are assigne
  • Why is the processing time so long ? As i received my subclass 190 PR visa within 9 months.
  • What can we do to make our case stronger or is it just on our luck that we get a good case officer who processes our case faster ?
  • Have any partner visa 309/100 been issued within 6 months ? which seems to be a fair timeline.

Thank you for your continued support.
Cheers !

When should we expect a case officer to be assigned to her case
Hard to tell

What to expect from the case officer when they are assigne
It depends, if you have all the documents submitted, it's possible that you won't hear from your CO at all (before grant). If CO needs any additional information/documents, only then (s)he'll contact.

Why is the processing time so long ? As i received my subclass 190 PR visa within 9 months.
Processing time varies between different subclasses because they give different priorities to different subclasses.

What can we do to make our case stronger or is it just on our luck that we get a good case officer who processes our case faster ?
You have no control over that.

Have any partner visa 309/100 been issued within 6 months ? which seems to be a fair timeline.
I don't have any answer to that, but processing time is not something written on the stone, it's just statistics based on recent outcomes. I have seen a lot of variation in both ways (significantly longer/shorter).

@MysticRiver

Hi MysticRiver Case officer has made contact over the phone with my wife and also sent our agent an email on 12/11/2021 with the following additional information:

Request Detail
Other requirements
Photographs of your wedding
Photographs of your wedding ceremony and celebration. You should include photographs
of the central ceremony as well as any other cultural or religious ceremonies that were
performed. Please include photographs of you and your sponsor together plus photographs
of you and your sponsor with guests in attendance.

This was already submitted in our application
Photographs of togetherness:
Photographs of you and your sponsor together plus with social gatherings to show that your
marriage is socially accepted.
Please include photographs of your honeymoon and photographs of you and your sponsor
attending events/outings with friends and family.

This was already submitted in our application
Evidence of contact
Detailed evidence of your contact with your sponsor since you first met (eg. itemised phone
bills of both yourself and that of your sponsor during any period in which you have lived
apart; evidence of email correspondence over the period of your relationship, itemised phone
card records, internet chat history).

This is pretty much ongoing checks
Partner visa declarations
Please note that you have inappropriately answered the questions under 'Partner visa
declarations' in the application form 'Application for migration to Australia by a partner'.

Please answer the questions again and provide the application form.
This is was question which was answered incorrectly in our application


Just looking to see what do you think is the reason the case officer has asked for this information again ?
and we have managed to submit all the above information in 7 days time that is on 19/11/2021.

Also as per your expertise how long do you think the grant will take to come as my wife has completed her medicals aswell in august 2021.

Hope to hear soon
TC

It happens time to time. Sometimes CO misses some docs, sometimes another team starts handling your documents and they ask again. All you need to do is just supply what they ask.

I don’t know about timeline.
