That's amazing news congratulations!VISA GRANTED!!!
The best news to hear after waiting 10months!
My husband was assigned a case officer in March in which he just had to send in a police check and a letter from a family member confirming our relationship but then nothing!!!
After writing into then two weeks ago he got got told they they can't grant his visa while he is in Australia (he was here visiting me on a tourist one)
So once he left to NZ they granted his visa!🙌🏼
It has been a long wait and a few calls in..without much luck, but finally has come through.
So just some advice (as it's jot on the website) you can visit Australia while waiting but they can grant or process it while you at there (that's when applying from the UK)
I think I'd take ten months at this rate (it's nearly been six already). Do you mind me asking why they asked for further proof of your relationship? I've submitted mortgage documents and joint bank accounts, along with some other ancillary bits (not including a letter though) - hoping that will suffice!
Also, how did you know you were granted a case officer? Was that just because they asked for further documentation or did they send you separate correspondence?
