They will take no notice of your wedding date. If you don't have your visa you will have to change it.

Well I'm 6 weeks in and had zero contact. Starting to assume I'm definitely not hearing until grant as I front loaded my application.

Hearing there is a backlog isn't ideal though. Was hoping to be a 5 monther and have it activated on my Feb holiday to Oz.

Nearly 12 weeks in and we've not heard from the CO about our medical/police check. Fingers crossed for this week.

Yep, exactly 12 weeks for me today. Nothing yet. I went ahead and ordered the police checks. Waiting with medical a bit longer, though.

For those 'front loading' your police and health checks how do you do this. Do you have to use a specific medical centre or can you do it locally? As for the police check what exactly do you ask the police for? I know it sounds silly but there is an official name?

Thanks

We are in Scotland btw

Hi Brissybear, my partner is in Scotland and moving out to Brisbane too!
He had to submit both a Scottish Police check, and an ACRO police check. Don't forget your police checks for all countries that you have lived in for 12 months or more over the last 10 years as well.

I had my police check done prior to applying but waited until I had paid the fee to then be able to do my medical.

Medical was completed some 2 weeks after application date.
