100 not 309?

Surely the 309 comes first?

Thanks guys! Was cchecking the immi acc like crazy, then caught me by surprise at work!

I think the 309 is first but we must have qualified for permanent as we get t that one...maybe because we have been married 4 years?

Hi Chloerose, good to hear some others have got a grant this week, congrats!

And yes, it will be because of the length or your relationship that you went straight to the 100 visa (more than 3 year relationship). I got two separate visa grants through on two separate emails, one for the 309 and one for the 100. Did you just get a 100 grant email?

Ah no I just checked, they sent two, one with 309 and one with the 100... I'm confused, what does that mean?

It just means you have been granted both, but that the 100 permanent visa immediately supersedes the 309 temporary visa.

On my 309 grant notice it says my 'stay period' is until a decision has been made on my 100 visa. And on my 100 grant notice it says the stay period is indefinite.

Congrats Chloerose!

Still no word from London...close to 4 months now. But I just saw that my partner's status now shows "Approved". I don't recall seeing that before... So maybe things are moving along. Also just arranged my medical (tormorrow).

Those buttons to confirm you have submitted the police checks and medical...do they only appear when the CO requests them, or should they generally be there? If so, where? I can't seem to find them.

Buttons? I did mine before they were officially requested. I had only had contact from CO saying that they would need to be done before visa could be processed.
My medical results went straight to DIBP. I was asked by the clinic if I wanted to hear any bad news in advance of them publishing to DIBP and told that if I didn't hear anything then that was good news.
When I received my police check I scanned it and uploaded it under character evidence.

From ChimneyJ's post on the previous page

"In mid-November I realised that I should have had a button on my immiaccount which wasn’t there, to notify them that I had uploaded the requested police check / medical / requested document. So when I realised, I just sent my case officer an email and he left a voicemail the next day to confirm they had everything they needed and we were just waiting for a visa grant date."

I've now read a couple of times that there are buttons to notify them.
I guess maybe that's just when the CO requests things. Since there has been no contact with a CO, I assume just uploading the police files should be enough?

I believe a button that says 'Request complete' should appear when your CO makes a request for extra evidence or the police check (my CO never uploaded his request emails to my immiaccount and nothing ever changed on my status page).

There is a DIBP pdf called 'What does the status of my application in ImmiAccount mean?', look under the heading 'Information requested' for what I'm talking about (sorry i'm not allowed to post links but that doc should come up on a google search).

If you haven't had a CO assigned but you already have the completed police checks, I would just upload them. I imagine the CO would just see them when they look at all your other evidence.
