kristal posted a topic in Discussion specifically on applying for visasI have been following this forum for quite a while and haven't seen much update from Pretoria regarding Prospective Marriage Visa. I am inviting everyone who lodged their Prospective Marriage Visa PMV subclass 300 in 2019 to write their time line on this thread. If you did not apply in 2019 I kindly request you to create another thread if you would like to give your update. Below is my timeline Lodged PMV : April 2019 Applicant Police Clearance (RSA): Applied Apr 2019, Still waiting for clearance Sponsor Police Clearance: Uploaded Apr 2019 (front loaded) Applicant Biometric: Done Apr 2019 but flag still says required. This is a known issue in the system Applicant Health Assessment: Done and clearance a couple of weeks after lodgement. (front loaded) All other docs: All uploaded within a couple of weeks after lodgement Sponsor Application: Lodged same day as PMV PMV Status: Further Assessment Sponsor Status: Further Assessment Contact from CO: none
Hello. My partner is Australian and I'm based in SA, I want to apply for a quicker Visa between the PMV vs a skilled visa. If I go for a Regional Visa it would be Tasmania or SA. Which of the two Visa has a higher success rate of being approved and less daunting task of getting information non stop because Ive been refused twice the Visitor visa, but skills wise I'm quite versatile with lots of options and qualifications.
Hi there Submitting the visa application in hindsight has proved to be the easier part. Waiting for a case officer or contact from them is definitely the hardest. I have been trolling other forums around the world (which I need to stop doing) because it appears a lot of their experiences have not been very positive up to now. I applied for the prospective marriage visa subclass 300 on the 14th of July 2014 (front-loaded with medicals and PCC). I can’t really compare my situation to theirs (as everyone’s is different) but some of them have been waiting over a year with no contact. I choose to believe that it could be because they are applying from other countries and there systems are different. i.e. not South African. Then I read the processing times have recently increased and then there are quotas....and then I just stopped reading. LOL I know it has only been just over 5 weeks but I am really wanting to contact them to just confirm they have received everything. I am sure they have, it will just give me reassurance I guess. I feel like I am in a state of limbo. Hopefully no news is good news for now. If there are any other South Africans who have gone through the same visa process and can possibly shed light on their experiences it would be great . Do I contact them, or do I just hang in there? Goodluck to everyone else with their relevant visas.
