Well the request from SAU for my overseas and AFP check was in March. I had issues getting the overseas one because of being here in Oz. So there was a delay and I had to finally go overseas in May to get everything sorted. Did my wife's overseas police check while we were there.Sounds like they are getting ready to approve the visa once they have the documents they requested. I supplied mine and got my grant just 2 days later. Best of luck! So excited for you!!
Late June we received an email requesting the AFP police check and health assessment for my wife. That's been completed and submitted early July along with other documents they requested such as Form 80, history of relationship etc.
A CO hasn't been assigned. It's been 8 months since we applied so I'm not sure where we stand. Wife was granted 3 months BVB which expires in a week and we need to go overseas again to sort out personal things and visit her family. So what do you think? Seems a bit unfair to have to apply for another BVB again when having the TR wold make things less stressful.
That's great that you had your answer 2 days after supplying your documents. Your circumstance must have been different, you were probably well into the waiting queue.
