Hi everyone....... I'm applying for a partner visa and attended the medical in early February. Does anyone have any idea of how long we're probably going to have to wait? I come to Oz at the end of April

Thanks

Joanne

It's a Partner Visa ( Prospective Marriage Visa subclass 300)

We get married in May

I attended the medical 8 February and thought I might have heard something by now

Got an update today. I meet the medical requirements and they require no further documentation in support of my application. But it could still take another 5 months to be finalised............. Seems to be a ridiculously long time to wait when they've got everything!!

It might not be that long they just give you that as the outside waiting period .... what did they do in the medical examination ?

You have to be morbidly obese with weight related health problems before it becomes an issue.. I can point you at the exact wording if that woul make you feel comfortable?

Is your employer acting for you or are they using the services of a an agent ? We have submiited everything now to agent who is acting for my partners employer and they suggest as long as simple and no hickups then 4/6 weeks on 457 visa

 

Depends what your job is and family members etc... each case is different

 

Be helpful if you explained a little more detail ?
