    Hi, We're submitting my spouse visa (I'm British, hubby is Aussie) on Monday and wondering what the current processing times are? Does anyone know - i've heard they're up to 10 months for the spouse visa currently?

    Thanks lots,

    My husband got his a few months ago and it took over a year.Its no secret we had the C/O from hell(she later quit:biglaugh:)We had to supply up to 5 years of spent bills,bank statements,and god knows what else.I was told initially it was an easy process,which it might be if you get a good C/O who actually knows what they're doing.:cute:

    Are you applying in or out of OZ? as the time frames are different.

    I just had mine granted (in OZ) in 6 months and didn't know I had been assigned a CO. I front loaded my police certificates, had my medical as soon as visa was lodged and supplied 1-2 years of evidence including photos, wedding plans, holiday bookings, bills and bank statements etc.

    I got my visa in Feb 2008. I applied in the UK. It took 8 weeks. Our situation was fairly straightforward, but I did work hard to anticipate any follow-up questions in those areas we all have where we don't quite fit in all the boxes. As a result we didn't have too much ping pong with requests for further info and then further info to the further info. Maybe we were just lucky.

    There is a massive thread about this on Pomsinoz - which will tell you everything you need to know. They will quote you 6 months or whatever but if you get as much info to them up front and your case is simple and you don't get the case officer from hell then it will be much quicker.
