hi bee bee2,Hi Kam143,
as you said from this moment onwards it is a waiting game.
Depending on where you or your partner is from and how much evidence you supplied at lodgement your first contact should be within a year. most countries within the first 6 months.
if you haven't front loaded your application with medical and police clearances that will be the first email from immigration to look out for. if you have uploaded everything and they dont require anything else from you you may not get any contact at all until you get your grant.
Make sure you keep uploading documents as often as possible to show a continuing relationship. and make sure your sponsorship application is lodged asap, as all sponsorship applications will be processed first through the Perth office in Australia. once the sponsorship application has passed the screening in Perth your application will get sent to the applicants country for processing
PS. Sponsorship application is not a Form 40sp
Keep in mind i am not a migration agent this is all information i have gathered and read up on since the changes in July 2018.
just a quick question my immi account shows sponsorship status says submitted.. shud it be saying recieved..??
just got be bit concerned that as im the main applicant and my status is received but my sponsor's is submitted is that how its supposed to be??
waiting for your reply!! thanks
