    U.K. application time frame

    Applied 28th Jan 2018 Approved 21st Feb Landed in Aus last Thursday (31st May)
  2. Hi all Hello all this is my first post on here but have been reading a lot for the past few months so thanks everyone for the information and advice. I have a question about the visa we have lodged.... Myself and partner (Civil partnership) lodged our application on the 28th January 2018 for a partner (provisional) 309 Visa. I am British and my partner is Australian, we met in 2014 when i traveled in Australia for 12 months and when i returned home at the end of 2014 he decided to come and move here with me as at the time it was both quicker and easier. We have lived together in the UK since March 2015 and got Married / Civil partnership in October 2016. My partner has done visa applications before in Australia as part of a previous job so we felt confident we could do it ourselves and not use a lawyer but its always different when you are doing your own and not for someone else. My question regarding the application is when we came to submit the visa, although the application we lodged was the partner (provisional) 309 Visa it also had on the page / (subclass 100) visa. I have done a bit of research on this and it seemed to say that the (subclass 100) visa takes a lot longer to be approved as the guidelines for the 309 are 11 - 15 months and the guidelines for the 100 are 20 - 28 months. From this have i now been put onto the 100 and expect to wait 20-28 months or will i get the 309 first in the 11-15 months then get the 100 approved at a later date? Any information will be greatly appreciated.
