I applied in February it was granted until mid-April
Then applied 2 weeks ago, granted until February

I would recommend you write the dates of both your trips on the application so they might give you the BVB that covers both
Cool! Thanks for the reply! <3

Hi Scott! Hopefully you don't have long to wait now! I also have no clue how the applications get processed - I also saw people getting grants even though they applied after me. Just have to carry on being patient I suppose (easier said than done!). Keep us updated!
Will keep you posted, I'm more anxious than anything. We have no reason to believe it will be rejected, it's just the wait times are soooooo long. I don't think Mauritius is classed as a high risk country so shouldn't be to long, we haven't heard anything apart from an email stating the application will be processed in Brisbane.

Hang in there! I just got mine granted on Wednesday and I applied a week before you did - processed in Brisbane as well.
I feel like Brisbane is behind now - but yours shouldn't be far!!

Unfortunately you still have several more months to wait, people who applied in September 2014 are only just getting theirs granted. I'd say you still have another 6 months to wait. That's just a guess, the waiting sucks and from what i read on the 801 thread its the same wait times 12-15 months.

Guys can you pls share your experience if anyone have similar to mine or just share how long it took to grant the visa after the case officer was assigned. Well it's been nearly4 weeks now that my application has been allocated to a case officer but no decision yet. Feeling super anxious. Have few complications in my case but not sure how bad they are. So guys can you share if anyone of you took this long in decision making process? Thanks
Unfortunately m nobody is replying me on this forum. I'm sure though someone has similar experience as me

When putting scans of greetings cards into a word doc for evidence (eg. Christmas cards, engagement cards, new house cards) would you include the front and the inside of each one or just the inside?

I'm also planning to include envelopes that have the date stamps clearly visible for any ones that were posted.

Thoughts?

I scanned just the inside where the message and our names are mentioned, unless the front had any significant message. I included envelopes as well :).

Thanks :) I've already scanned the front of a lot of them but not sure if it's necessary now!

I also have birthday cards from my family to him and vice versa which I think I'll include.

How many stat decs did you get? We're also planning to ask a couple of my British friends who've stayed with us for statements.

Since the minimum stat dec is two, we decided to submit four. From reading forums, most people tend to submit 3-6 it seems. :)

We submitted quite a few cards (combined file) from our wedding guests, as well as a few cards that we've exchanged and cards from in-laws. Do what you feel is best for the dynamics of your relationship/situation.

Yeah actually we'll have wedding cards too by the time we apply, hadn't even thought of that! We have a few RSVPs knocking around somewhere too.

Hi Dev. I looked back through your posts and it seems like you've been waiting quite a long time. Did you get a generic email saying your application had progressed/been transferred to a particular office or have you been told specifically that you have a case officer? I've been following numerous threads and honestly it seems like the times differ. Some people get the email saying their application has progressed and still wait several months. I didn't even get notification of being allocated a case officer. Are you coming up to the 15 month mark of waiting now?

Hi Leema. Thanks for replying to my post. Well, I'll touch the 15 months mark on 28th of this month. I applied online using a migration agent. I received the generic email in May then didn't hear anything until last month when my agent said that the file has been allocated to a case officer now.

Surprisingly it's been nearly5 weeks the case officer hasn't asked for anything or hasn't done any communication with us. Nor she granted the visa so I'm very stressed about that like what's going on?

Hopefully I'll get a response soon. Hope for the best.

Usually hearing nothing is a GOOD thing. You have been waiting a few more months than us, you can always call immi, they have a call back feature so your not on hold for two hours.

We have finally got the good news today!!! 820 approved this morning:) We applied on 19th October 2014 and approved on 19th October 2015. We got a mail couple of months back saying that our case was allocated to Brisbane processing centre and email from CO last week requesting additional documents for evidence of relationship.I have uploaded more evidence on this weekend and sent an email to CO. To my surprise got the visa grant email this morning. We were lucky to have a very good CO. Good luck with others waiting.

Hi sssforu

Congrats to you great news and thanks for informing us!

May I ask whether you applied online or on paper?

Did you receive an automatic email stating your application has progressed in the queue and you will be contacted by the Department once processing of your application has commenced? If so, when?

I received this email in mid August and I'm still waiting impatiently lol

CONGRATULATIONS - It's frustrating seeing people get theirs granted when you applied before them but congrats all the same. :)
