Hi there

I am planning to submit my EOI for 189 next month and I will be adding my wife as an additional applicant. Would like to confirm if it would take longer for my wife's PR to be processed compared to mine because of her being offshore. The current time stated on the immigration website is 3 months. So does that mean her PR shall be processed in the same time frame. I am a little confused about this because the partner visa time frame is stated to be 12 months or more. What would apply in case of a joint application?

Secondly, is it OK to have the police clearance checks before hand or does it have to be up to a specific date? Is there a time cap on these? for example, cannot be older than xxx months?

Would really appreciate your help
