Partner Visa for Australia – sometimes they get it right!
Posted 29 June 2012 - 07:18 AM
With all the negative stories you read and hear about in regards to visas and agents, I wanted to share my latest experience.
On Monday 25th June 2012 at 11:00am I entered the immigration department in Adelaide South Australia to pay for a Partner visa for my now wife who had entered Australia on a Prospective Marriage Visa(South Australian Partner Visas get processed in Perth Western Australia). I was asked how I was going to pay the fee and it was my intention to pay by using EFTPOS (savings account).
The lady asked if I had all the relevant application papers and documents with me which I did. She advised me that by paying this way I could pay for and lodge the visa application at the same time which would start the process and they would transfer the application for me to Perth Western Australia for a case manager to review and make a decision which could take between 9 -12 months for a decision.
By 11:45am application was lodged, paid for and I had a letter of acknowledgement of partner visa application received.
Well by this time I was I was feeling fairly lucky as it all went smoothly and I did not have to pay Australia Post or a courier to send our application to Perth.
Friday 29th June 2012 at 3pm I receive a call from a case manger in Perth in regards to our application and that the first stage of this visa had been grated!
WOW! I could not believe that it had been lodged on a Monday and approved by the following Friday!
I put all the application together myself using the checklist immigration supplies and info I have researched.
Thank you to everyone who has posted constructive information for others to use!

My application for my (now) ex was 6 weeks approved from application to approval. We did use an agent, but frankly for the spouse Visa I dont think we needed to do so.
Good on you......
