      SPOUSE 309 - applied in the last few weeks?

      Applying for a spouse (309) visa, our progress so far....

      20/4 - sent off application (frontloaded).
      21/4 - money taken
      27/4 - email from C/O confirming receipt of application
      29/4 - received all the evidence we'd sent back in the post
      05/5 - phoned C/O who infromed they didn't require anything else but there was a backlog of apps and it could take 3 months to hear.

      Has anyone else who's applied in the past couple of weeks heard anything? or been granted a visa?

      Hi Ozplorers!

      Our (very short) timeline is below:

      25/4 - App Sent Front Loaded
      27/4 - Payment Taken

      Nothing since then... no contact from CO or anything!

      Will keep waiting....

      Just received an email (the first contact) from my CO introducing herself and telling me that average processing time for this type of visa is 3 - 4 months at present!

      Interesting since most people I have 'spoken' to seem to get theirs in 10 - 20 days.

      Ah no this is not good news guys!! We put in our application last week on Thursday, have heard nothing yet. Were applying for a spouse visa, we pre-loaded the police and health check. We want to get it back before June, but it doesnt sound likely. please everyone keep me posted on your news - and good luck!!

      becandtarso, I wouldn't worry too much (I know, it is easy for me to say... we're still waiting for our house to sell) as looking at this thread: http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/migrat...our-stats.html things seem to move relatively quickly on 309s and similar. I can't imagine that changing too dramatically in the space of a few weeks!

      All the best!

      Hi Bubba, thanks for that link, it was very reassuring!! I am going to check my email asap, cant do that at work!! Hopefully the CO will have contacted. Thanks for your help.
      We applied in London, so Im hoping the application will move more quickly than the Sydney ones seem to be.
      Good luck to all!

      My understanding is that the timing depends on where you have filed. On other posts here I've heard that Sydney is taking 6 mths but London can be done very quickly-in weeks. So in making these posts you need to mention which office of Australia govt you lodged at. Otherwise, the guidance won't be very helpful to you.
