Hi bluesea

Hello Bluesea,thanks for replying to me.It is always nice to know that there are other people who are in the same circumstance like me.You will not have any difficulty to get your BVB as it is quite straightforward and they reply normally the next working day after they have received your application.I see that you are from Thailand ?I was there in June and I had a fantastic holiday with my husband.
I wish you the best in all your plans here and also all the best in obtaining your residency in this great country.
Take care

Thanks Mrs G. Glad to hear that you had a fantastic holiday in Thailand. What part of Thailand did you visit? I am originally from Ayutthaya the old capital city just north of Bangkok but have lived in Australia for the past 6 years studying and working.

Phuket is nice - my dad has a company there so I have spent a fair bit of time but there is certainly more to experience in Thailand! Congratulations on your recent marriage also :)

Hi Mrs G,

Great to hear from you again. I hope you had a fantastic time over in Europe and welcome back to Australia!!!

We submitted our application via hard copy (online applications weren't available back when we applied) through Sydney about 14 and a half months ago! We haven't heard anything since except for an automated email back in April to tell us they would look at our application in the next couple of months. We submitted what we believe was a decision ready application so we hope that I am not too far off getting granted TR.

Hopefully you will not have to wait as long as us to get yours granted.

Have a good day.

Hi Bluesea,
Holiday was great but always good to be back home .Thanks for giving me an insight of where you are in your partner visa application journey.I guess we need to be very patient and live one day at a time without worrying too much about the outcome !!But not always easy!!!For the time being,I will apply for Medicare and get my life more organised as there are many things I would like to do.After you sent your application and during the waiting period,did you send more evidences?What is a decision ready application by the way?I have come across this term many time but never really understood what it is.
Have a nice day Bluesea

I know what you mean about it not being easy to have to wait so long. I found the first 12 months ok but now I check VEVO every day hoping that I will hear something soon.

No, we haven't sent any more evidence (apart from updating the details on my husbands passport when he had to renew it) as we believe our application was very comprehensive and already had sufficient supporting documentation.

Decision ready just means that everything that the Department requires was submitted at the time of the original application - i.e. health checks, all police checks, all required forms and supporting documentation were submitted with the original application.

Speak soon :)
