Time taken for 100 visa when applying onshore with 309?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My partner (British citizen) and I applied for the 309 partner visa offshore from London in October 2018- it was granted in May 2019 and we moved to Sydney in Aug 2019.

We've just submitted the 100 application onshore for permanent residency as it has been 2 years since our original application- did anyone else do the same this year/last year and mind letting me know how long the processing took? Was hoping it would be a relatively quick process but sounds like it could take another 12-18 months?

 

Thanks!

These were taking a long time to process (12 -18 months), however, they have been moving much quicker of late. 

I have had a number processed in a few weeks lately.

Thanks Raul! Hopefully it doesn’t take 12-18 months then- we are kicking ourselves for not waiting an additional couple of months to apply, as we would have then qualified for both 309/109 together.

HI KitCat, did you go through the same process for this stage or is there a shorter way to get it done? I am about to start my 100 but it looks like they want all evidence similar to the first part.

Hi Belfastchild,
 

It is unfortunately the same application- however the supporting evidence and requirements is a bit lighter (no health checks, less attachments required). 
 

We also treated the evidence as just for the period since the last application was submitted rather than our whole relationship- so joint bank statements, social media, bills etc for the last two years only rather than our whole relationship. 
 

No word yet on our application (was submitted 5/10) so hopefully we handled it correctly!
