I am clinging to the fact that if it was going to be rejected, they would have rejected it by now. I see no reason for a rejection but my fiance and I did meet online 7 years ago when I was 15 so that may raise some eyebrows.
I stupidly done my police check in October for lodging my visa in the middle on November last year, so your a couple of weeks before me. Post any updates and I'll do the same. I done my medical 2 weeks ago, even though it was due to be done till next month but it lasts 12 months. What visa is it you've applied for ? I've lodged a PMV subclass 300.

I was waiting almost a month for my police check and today was the day I was going to march into the station and ask why it hadn't arrived yet so I was lucky it did arrive today.

We applied for the PMV too. Meeting online and applying for a PMV looks kinda bad so I am worried about it.

I just called the London office and it is just a change of terminology.

I also pushed the guy around what happens in terms of the month between 9-10 (when the processing times change from 8-9 to 10-14 months) and he basically said that the visas processing staff will be looking at other visa classes during that time and the earliest anyone who applied on the 21st of July or after can expect their visa is at 10 months. Which is a bit gutting but hopefully he's just towing the corporate line and some will get lucky.

Fingers crossed for everyone.

Look at the amount of online dating there is, meeting online is a normal thing these days. I've known my partner for about 16 years as friends but she moved back from Scotland to Australia 8 years ago where she was born and we were friends on Facebook and the start of last year we started a relationship online. I've been in Australia since June last year, need to apply for an extension on my holiday visa that runs out in the middle of May so hopefully that extension will take me up to about visa grant time. Well fingers crossed

Thats good to know! I applied for my police check two weeks ago and was starting to worry. I'll chill out about that for now then!

Hi, this is my first time using this forum, thought i'd share my info and see if anyone else is in the same boat.

So me and my aussie partner had our 309 visa received 01/07/2014 and a case owner assigned a few weeks later. Medicals and police checks were completed in October and are all good.

London Embassy say they don't require anything else from us but we are in the 10th month of waiting and were told 8 - 9.

Has anyone got any additional info or applied around the same time?

Many thanks Lowell

Waiting for my PMV 300. Applied for an extension for my holiday visa as my e-visitor 651 visa expires next month. So applied for a visitor 600 visa to extend it till the start of October and they extended it till 10th August. They said if I apply again to extend it an unfavourable decision would be made because since I arrived on the 3rd June 2014 I've spent 314 days in Australia and only 10 days outside Australia.

When this runs out, if I apply to extend it again a couple of days before and they refuse to extend it. I get 28 days from when they refuse to extend it. Is this correct ? So that would take me to the start of September.

My partner and I submitted application on August 10, 2014 from London. We are still waiting. Last email from CO said they had everything the needed from us. Our application was fairly straightforward with no unusual circumstances.
Hopefully we hear an answer very soon.
