Partner Visa real processing time observations 309 /300

Hi Everyone,

This is my first question to all in the same boat.

Has anyone noticed what is the actual time of processing the Partner visa 309 in many cases you know?

I am aware that the immigration Australia website gives an estimate of 13- 15 months.

I applied in May 2019 for my wife.

Your feedback will be appreciated.

Thanks Flyboy

Quite a few May 2019 sc309 applications were finalised in February 2020. Has yours been finalised yet?

Interesting to compare to the official times for last month, Jan 2020. Jan 2020: 14-19 = 75% took up to 14 months. 10% took over 19 months.
