Today we received the email to organise our health and police check. I have also been approved as the sponsor! We have 28 days to complete the checks. Exciting! Hope you all hear something soon.

Happy for you. Glad the ball is finally rolling and you've had contact.

I'll be on an e-visitor next month. I called last week and the guy at the embassy told me I didn't actually have to tell them if I apply for my e-visitor through the same immi account.

Apparently they can see that you've got the e-visitor. They then also know if you are onshore as you'll pass through immigration so known to contact you about leaving.

Congrats Koalakate! Great to see they're back from the holidays!

Good to know, Uhtred! I mean in this day and age with everything being done electronically, you would expect that, right? I think you're still meant to provide a different contact address if you are away for more than 2(?) weeks, though?

Wouldn't have a clue on the contact details. Again would assume they could contact you via email or your immi account if it's specific to your application.

We are away for 3.5 weeks and the guy on the phone didn't seem bothered. If ever in doubt give them a call, I had to wait for a bit but the guy was helpful and happy to even tell me I had a CO.

Uhtred - I hadnt even thought that the E-visitor would be an application through Immiaccount! That makes sense! It's been a couple years since applying for one, and we don't go until August, so i haven't even bothered to look into it.
Im secretly hoping we will have an approved grant by then and that we can use the trip as activation!

KoalaKate - Thats fab news!! Yay!

Edit to add: When we booked our flights for our trip over we uploaded a copy onto the application so they are aware of our plans.

Think I just replied to you in the other forum.

Hope you do it granted prior to your holiday, makes it so much more easier.

It's free through the IMMi Account (and easy to do), while when getting it through a travel agent, they usually charge you...

Hi everyone,

Some exciting news for me. We got our 309 and 100 today!!! It's been 6.5 months since we applied.

NO longer have to check emails every hour like an obsessive maniac.

I wish everyone the best of luck with the process and your futures together

Did you have any contact from your CO other than the request documents and then your grant?
