Hi and thanks! Pretty excited!

Final police check was submitted 27 June, and visa granted 18 July! They had had everything else for a while I suppose.

Congratulations on the visa
we lodged our application on the 30th May, got requested for medical and police check on the 14th July, submitted on the 27th! Now the wait begins again.

I submitted my application on March 14, then I was requested to provide more documents on April 20 (I wasn't in a rush because always planned to stay in UK until 2018 anyway) and had 28 days to upload my documents. I submitted my documents in full on May 15, and within six hours I had a letter requesting my health and police checks, along with my Australian husband's police checks from both UK and Oz. I already had had my Canadian one, so got medical and waited for UK police check, which took maybe 10 business days or so. My husband's Oz one took longer than the 28 days he had, so he had to upload correspondence that he was chasing them (was supposed to be within 7-10 business days! Argh!) and submitted straight away when we got them. I got my approval for my two-year 309 visa on July 18.

So I'll continue to organise myself for two years from now with saving/collecting evidence, but glad the first bit is done!

Thanks for this CanadianChristina! Having already been requested to provide additional information (sponsor 10 year address history), we received a request for his AUS police checks this week and wondered if that was normal - it seems so! Congratulations and best of luck with your move (when it comes)!

Hi, guys. Great news to share with you guys. I got my visa 309 granted today, 3 days shy to 2 months in total, our Case officer is V. We submitted my parnter's australian police check yesterday, and got the visa granted today, and it was totally unexpected, we thought we won't hear back from the CO until September the earliest! Anyways, we are very happy and excited
I don't think we have the strongest case, as we are a very new couple, knowing each other from last July, and only officially moved in together this January, so the evidence we submitted might not be as strong as other couples on this forum, but we had our relationship registered in NSW and attached that certificate as our evidence, as well as a few month's joint bank account statements, utility bills and credit card bills. That's it.
Just want to share this great news with you guys who submitted your application around the same time with us, cz the processing time in London now is very quick, and if you already got requested the police and medical check, u might want to get it done asap, it's a good sign and the result might be very quick after that. good luck to everyone!!

Oh wow - congrats! That is fast. We are still waiting for contact here. We submitted FBI Clearance and my husband has just done the medical. Just waiting for the Irish and U.K. police clearance to arrive then will upload that. Hope it gets processed as fast.

Congratulations!! Great to hear that news for you, and positive to hear the processing times!

Just need my sponsor's UAE police check to hurry up now! Hopefully the rest of my case has been appraised and approved and they are just waiting on that as the final piece of data to tick off the list!

Estimate waiting time for UAE police check 8-12 weeks!

Congratulations again, you must be over the moon / shocked it was so quick!!
