Hi everyone,

I (sponsor, Australian citizen) and my fiancé (German applicant) applied for our PMV 300 on the 29th October, 2017.

This morning, after just over 1 month, we received a request for her German police check and Medicals (which conveniently is being done this week).

I, being the sponsor actually ordered my Australian police check a week ago and it came, but I was just waiting for my Canadian police check to come in the mail this week (I have been living here for 18 months).

I actually have not uploaded either police checks for myself yet, so I am surprised to see when I click into immiaccount, next to my name as sponsor, approved. It still says submitted - but definitely approved next to my name.

I am kind of confused. Does this mean I do not have to upload any police checks as sponsor? Out of curiosity I tried to upload my Australian one, but there does not seem to be an upload button in the sponsor section anymore.

My question - is this normal? I am certainly not complaining haha. Also wondering if I should still upload my Australian and Canadian police checks under the applicant section - as I did go through all the hassle and cost of obtaining them both.

Thanks!

Normal lately is they are requested of sponsors and it is now listed on the checklist on the DIBP website as a requirement.

Maybe it was overlooked, maybe not. You've already gone through the trouble of acquiring them so if I were you I would upload them anyway under the applicant section (clearly labeled as sponsor police check to avoid confusion) in case they end up wanting them.

I remember reading recently a sponsor was 'approved' for a while, but later got asked for police checks.
