309/100 uk

I have recieved the golden email this morning!! So pleased.

Applied on 4th November 2017
Uploaded my Medical and Police Checks for myself and wife within two weeks
Didn't hear anything until 18th January 2018 asking for wife's Australian Police Check (we thought was strange as been here since she was 4 years old and is now 38 but did it anyway)
We received Police check Saturday and uploaded straight away and then emailed the check to the case officer.
Email received for 309 & 100 (10 mins later)

Hi All, great forum - really useful for our 309/100 application.

On average, how long did people have to wait between submitting the medical and police checks (After been asked for them by the CO at the start of Jan), both were submitted within 2 weeks, and having their visa granted?

Almost up to 5 months time - applying through London.

Thank you.

Golden ticket arrived!

Your posts on this forum really lifted us when we thought we were in for an 11-16 month wait after submitting my 309/100 application.. Thank you everyone for taking the time to update here with your experiences.

Here is our timeline:
11 Nov 17 - submitted application and payment online
21 Nov 17 - medical assessment appointment
30 Jan 18 - first contact from CO, requested UK and AUS police checks from my hubby/ sponsor. Requested Form 80 and UK Police Check from me/applicant. Note, I had previously uploaded a DRB check but that wasn't sufficient.
14 Feb 18 - uploaded all of the requested documents. A 309 grant was received back within 60 minutes! (Not the 100 part however).
A little over three months from start to finish.

Very excited indeed. Happy Valentines!

Great news makmillar. Were you expecting to get the 100 based on long term relationship (3 years/2 years with child(ren))?

Hi there - thank you, we're a bit chuffed :-)

In answer to your question, I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of part 100 being granted. My hubby and I met on 7 Feb 2015 and were married on 15 Aug 2015. So, at the time of the grant, we have been in a relationship for more than three years (just).

Yeah, unfortunately it's a "at time of application" requirement, not at time of grant. Also they would be counting the start of the relationship when you committed to each other to the exclusion of all others. In other words it does not include any period where you were dating.

Thanks for clearing that up, make sense. We'll just wait for the 100. No drama :-)
