We applied 25 June - CO assigned 27 July - medicals / Police clearances completed in August (south africa and uk due to my husband being from SA).

Married 4 years, no kids. Pretty straight forward application I think.

No grant yet - will let you know though as it seems June applicant grants are coming through!

Uhtred, Feb would be very convenient for me. Got my return flight to London booked for 21 Feb anyway (Tourist Visa...3 months). Fingers crossed!
Start of Feb would be brilliant for me too. We holiday end of Feb for 3 weeks so I'd like to activate it then...if not then I'll have to be back before September.

Congratulations to June applicants. Amazing news. Enjoy your weekend celebrating.

Has anyone applied in July? I wondered if you had heard anything (CO, medical)? I know August applicants (myself included 18th August) are still waiting.

Thank you for sharing. Interesting you heard so quickly about your medical/police check. I applied 18th August and have has no contact. I'm sure you will be granted your visa in the next couple of months.

Would be interested to know about that as well but I believe his application was handled in UK and that's where it was lodged too.

Hi both - my husband is from South Africa, but we applied in London on the 25.06.2016. We have been living here for 4 years, so he had to get police certs from both UK and South Africa - the SA police check I was expecting to take a while, but it didnt it was quite quick actually.

Hope this helps?

Perhaps! We will just be happy if it's granted, that's the main thing, we are not stressing over how long it takes really, as there's nothing we can do to influence that (apart from what we have done already - prepare the best application we can). I do understand it is far more stressful for others with different situations though, especially the prospect of time apart.

I havent seen anymore grants from June as yet...so maybe these are all yet to come. I uploaded a job offer this morning - I have been offered a job starting in Jan back in Melbourne, so hoping this in some way will assist with the approval times.

Not sure though!
