I have been closing following this forum for pretty much 2 years now and it has provided a lot of useful help so thanks guys!
Yesterday I got my 820 grant email after waiting for 15 months and 6 days. I'm from the UK & lodged in Melbourne online with medical completed and police checks up front.
Received a generic your application has progressed in the queue email in July 2016. I uploaded the form 80 not too long after this and then a new police check in December 2016 as mine (the applicant) had now been older than 12 months.
No official contact from a case officer until their name appeared on the grant notice yesterday!
