I assume you applied online from Australia? I believe when you apply they tell you the wait time, which is up to 10 business days, if I recall. My partner is with me in Canada and we had it mailed to her Mom's in Australia and it only took a few days. I believe it is sent by post only.I already submit the sponsor police check online for partner visa. Does anyone know how and where to check the status outcome for the police check result? How long will i be receiving the certificate. Receive by email or post?
