Hi Koalakate, how did you find out you were approved as a sponsor, does the status of your application on your sponsor immi account change?

Thanks and good luck!

We are playing with the idea of getting medical and police check done before it is requested by a CO. We know its a gamble in terms of timing and the risk of it expiring before grant or leaving a limited time for activation, but am interested in what everyone else's thoughts are and what they did?

We have a very simple application. Married for 7 years, lived together for 9 and we have 3 children, all Australian Citizens. No previous marriages etc. I'm hoping the application won't take the full 10-14 month current timings.....

We applied in November...

I got mine done a week after applying. Not sure why, suppose we weighed up the potential issues but wanted it done and attached.

I got the police checks (UK and Germany) done while I was still in Europe (that was about 3 months after submitting the application. Wanted to get it done before flying over to Australia.

Waited for the medical to be in Australia. It was cheaper, service was offered in city of residence (no 7 hour return trip) and it was further into the application (around 4 months in, so within the 14 months). Made an appointment and by coincidence I received the request for the medical the morning before I had the medical anyway.

I guess if you wait a few months, 3-5 months, you should be fine in terms of expiration.

I wanted to wait a bit, because I was keen on getting the request by IMMI. Simply because the request would show me that someone has actually looked at the application. While when you submit everything with it, you might not have any contact at all (until grant or refusal) and you wouldn't neccessarily know if your application has been looked at.

That's great news, and gives me hope that not all waiting times are over a year. We put my visa application in at the beginning of November '16 but we're hoping to leave early September this year.
Best of luck and congratulations.

Yes, we're hoping that same and that ours is also simply, together 10 years, living together for 7. Not married, no kids (couple of cats though) and no previous marriages.
I'm just finding that I'm so impatient now that we have decided to take the step to move back I just want to get on with it, feeling a bit in limbo as I'm sure so everyone is.
Wishing you and your family the best of luck.
