Hi Janne, that's amazing news I'm so happy for you! My partner is currently in Australia on a tourist visa while we wait as well (we got too impatient being apart). Just wondering - when they send you through the letter asking you to leave so that they can process the grant, do they give you a timeline of when you have to go? We're sitting here anxiously waiting him having to pack his bags and go on a little solo holiday!

Thank you! It's such a relief! I can finally start looking for work! Fingers crossed it's your turn soon!

They gave me a date for the last possible initial entry (based on the expiry of my first police certificate) which is in November, and a 28-day deadline to respond to their letter and let them know what the plans were.
But no "you have to leave within the next 14 days" or similar.

Oh that's pretty handy! We were convinced they would write to us and tell us that he had to leave immediately so it's good to hear that we can sort it out in our own time!

Hopefully we aren't too far off as every day is a constant struggle without having any news!!

Hi all.

My fiancé and I applied for the offshore partner visa last year:

Applied: 17/08/2016
Health check requested: 20/08/2016
Health check submitted: 26/08/2016
Police check requested: 20/08/2016
Police check submitted: 12/11/2016

We've had no further information back from the Immi department.
We are going through the London embassy. My fiancé is Swiss.

Does anyone have any similar stories to share?

Looks like you applied a day after us. We got our approval yesterday. Maybe you are next? What is the initial of your CO?

We haven't been assigned a CO. Unless my fiancé has missed something in her emails...

Did you have an agent or did you apply for it yourself? I note that for my sponsor application it simply says received, not approved. Is this unusual?

Who sent the request for the police check and the medical then? My request was signed with a name.

We did our own application. No agent involved.

The sponsor appication status should change to "approved" at some point. My partner's sponsor status changed at the beginning of Dec (about 3.5 months into the applications) and a day or two later I received the request for additional info and the medical (police checks submitted earlier).

Hi Janne, I'll ask her about the notification she received. Was your request clear that you'd be assigned a CO? Her health check simply says, "Health clearance provided – no action required
(11111177)
All health examinations required for the specified visa subclass have been finalised. Processing of this person's visa application can now continue. This will not occur until a case officer investigates the case in line with published processing times for the visa that has been applied for. Do not contact the department about health examinations in the meantime."

That's all we have.

Hi Kel,

If you look in your mailbox at the bottom of the request or in the email notification that you've received correspondence, there should be a case officer's name there.
