I applied on 4th July 2017. I got notice of a bridging visa a few days later, other than that, still no word from them about processing, no case officer assigned. I keep emailing but they’re either giving generic replies or not replying at all.
In Oct 2017 I applied to lift the work ban. It went easier than expected. I sent 2 of my husband’s payslips and 2 grocery receipts. I also mentioned that I had school loans to repay, and that we just got married and we would like to start saving for our new life here. It was approved immediately.
I sent my police clearance with my application in july last year. So now its expired. I haven’t left perth since I arrived, but I wonder if I’ll have to get a new police clearance since they expire after one year. I hope not because that is really not my fault, they are the ones who ask us to send all that when we apply (to speed up the process apparently, which is obviously not the case right now).
Now I need to travel out of the country and am wondering if I need to give them a really good reason to leave, or whether they will approve any old holiday. Anyone know?
