309/100 from Hong Kong

Hello everyone!

My husband is Australia citizen and we got married in May 2019. Then I lodged partner visa application in sep 2019 from hk, uploaded everything except for medical and police.

Just days ago I received email from an officer asking us for additional documents, including me and my husband’s police certificate, my medical, proof of continued relationship from past 3 months, my husband’s residence history in past 10 years.

They gave me 28 days to submit everything. I’ve submitted all requested documents except for police certificate.

I found the hkid number they put on my “request for hk police certificate” letter is incorrect. Just sent an email to the officer asking for an corrected document. Now im just waiting for further notice.

Is there anyone submitted at similar time from Hong Kong? I’ve read here many received the grant not long after they submitted police and medical. Don’t want to give myself too much hope but really fingercrossed.

Also on my medical examination appointment letter, my visa type is 100 instead of 309, does it mean anything?

Not really.

All medicals appear to marked for the 2nd stage of the partner visa 100 or 801, even though they are carried out at the 1st stage, 309 or 820.

Hi, just about to start lodging for the permant 100 visa, just have a few questions.
1. Do we both have to do another "My comittment to..." where we write about how much we love each other and stuff like that again?? Seems extremely pointless as it's gonna be so repetitive. ( I know the sponsor have to do a stat Dec, not talking about that.
2. The stat Dec the sponsor have to do, writing about all the 4 aspects within the relationship...surely that can just be exactly the same as what we are already writing in the main application?? Not sure how many ways we can explain the exact same relationship..

I was wondering if anyone could shed any light into the following;

Once the 309 is approved how long do you have to move to Australia?

Also it says on the conditions you can travel in and out of aussie as much as you like. Does this mean you have to have this as your main residence while the 100 is being processed?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

For me they have put 1 year to move to Australia. Its says granted 4.3.2020 and first entry no after 4.3.2021. And multiple entries. So I think its the main residency until they decide the 100.

Its based on when your medicals and police checks expire, so whatever expires first is the expiry for entry.
My due date was no where near the expiry date of my police check and medicals. All done same day though. They expire this april, but i have till next year to enter. So i am not sure it always based on the expiry date of your medicals or police check

Well I uploaded about 86 documents during this nine months period of waiting time. I went in all relevant categories and tried to upload as much as relevant documents as possible. Every month I uploaded documents which shows we were in contact and our relationship is continuing.
