Not sure though!
You got a job offer in Melbourne while you're in UK?

Yep I applied here, sat interviews assessments etc over the phone, and landed the job. So I start on the 16th Jan, so I will leave before my husband (as I am the sponsor) and hoping that will help our application.... and then he will join me when approved

Nope, nothing. Arrived in Australia on my eVisitor last week and I'm now trying to decide if I should do the medical now (submitted police checks already) or wait. Upside with waiting is that they'll have to contact you at some point to request it and you know that something is movig along, while submitting the medical now might mean no contact until they are ready to grant it. Which then will be a huge surprise...

But at least I got my medicare sorted yesterday. No probs at all here in Canberra. All she wanted was a print out of my current visa grant letter, the 309 application receipt and my passport. Took about 15 minutes to get it done. Expected it to be much more complicated after reading how some people on the forums had to fight for it!

Delighted to share our good news - 309 grant came through today! We're thrilled and really surprised as it took well under 5 months, which was the very best we were hoping for (but expecting longer). There was no CO contact other than the request for the medicals and police check, so everything must have been in order with our application, thanks in no small part to all the excellent advice offered to both ourselves and many others on this forum.

Did you apply through London or Ireland ?
