Marriage, fiancee and partner visa processing times

UK family immigration:

The length of time it takes UK Visas & Immigration (formerly the UK Border Agency or UKBA) to process a UK fiancée, partner or marriage visa application depends on a wide variety of factors. Generally, processing times for settlement applications vary depending on the country where the application is made as different British Consulates, Embassies and High Commissions have different standards for approving UK marriage visas.

Australia partner migration:

Processing times for Australian partner migration applications vary depending on the visa office where the application is lodged. The time it will take the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) to process a prospective marriage (subclass 300) or spousal/unmarried partner visa application (subclass 309) can vary depending on many different factors, including the country of application and whether the application is made in the prescribed manner or requires additional administrative processing.
