Hello everyone,

I've just joined the forum. My fiance and I have also applied for the PMV this year. We submitted the application on January 18th. Still having heard from a CO but I went ahead and got my medical done on the 28th of February. Applied through Ottawa from Barbados (me) and my fiance has already submitted his sponsorship application as well in January after I submitted mine.

If you have submitted everything they need, you may never hear from an Immigration Officer, until the day you get the decision.

Some people, who don't submit everything initially, and need to be asked, may get requests from more than one person, during their "often longer" wait.

Our PMV process was longer for two reasons, one being 'not attaching everything required', and the other 'having to leave Australia to get it granted'. During that time we had contact from two Immigration Officers.

Ohh. Thank you for your reply JandE. I feel a bit better after what you said, we submitted everything upfront and plan on updating it when any major new thing happens with us or like every 2-3 months or so.

Hi, successfull interview we believe. Senior Immigration Officer asked about partners current finances/ employment, previous travel & how/ when we met. Officer asked about my finances/ employment & education & where I live (Aus).

Next day request was sent from Cairo to our immigration lawyer for a new medical as previous one expired, new police clearance for my fiance from Malaysia as previous one expired and a police clearance from Qatar.

Note, my fiance lived in Qatar more than 10 years ago, and techincally as far as i am aware you only need to provide police clearances from within the past ten years however because he was born and raised there (on Sudanese passport) he is required to submit a Qatari clearance. This is something to consider if you or your partners have lived long term o/s prior to 2009.
