Yay yay yay! Happy dancing for you AUSUSA8892!! So glad your stressful wait time is over!
And of course - a question - how much time did they give until the entry date and how does that date relate to expiry of your police or medical checks?

My hubby landed back in the USA today to the wonderful news that his visa was approved!

If only we'd known it would be such a quick turn around when we booked his flights, because it's going to be almost three weeks until he's back home with me (for good)!!

FANTASTIC!!! Such good news. 3 weeks will be easy after such a long wait to get the approval! :) :) :)

Congrats, Mellie! Great news :) So that's 3 approvals this week just on this board, correct? Maybe they are starting to really roll now! When did your husband apply?
Yep that's three this week, all 309s and all at or under 9 months. Lkimball, AUSUSA8892, and Mellie. I'm watching this closely since I'm kinda "next on the list" (though there's a few people who applied before me we haven't heard from in a while - they may have gotten their grant but not reported it here).

I am hoping my case isn't overly complicated to result in a delay.

I keep my "maybe today's the day" hope going until 2 pm when it's quitting time in DC, then attempt to let it rest till the next day! It's a bit emotionally exhausting, but this whole process has been.

Nearly three years in a long distance relationship except for the five months together last year. More than ready to have this 'visa year' behind us!

Hi Sharyny,

Could I ask just out of curiosity what kind of information do they ask for when they asked you for one more piece of information?

we forgot to do the state police check where we lived before we left .. we did the FBI check but not the local police check and thats what she needs and thats it. she has everything but that.

I've seen some activity on the old DC thread so thought I would post to bring this one back to the forefront.

Hopefully those who posted there will also find their way here and join the wait group.

As for us, still waiting on our FBI check and would be really nice to have a CO assigned sometime in the next month.

Cheers to all and hope you had a lovely Australia Day :)

Could someone please steer me in the right direction of where I should upload supporting witness statements? Social aspects? Nature of commitment? I'm not really sure! Thanks for your help!

*** Edited ... I figured it out :)
