Hi, we applied Oct 24, 2014 - so the visa took 1 year minus 3 weeks. Grueling

Why wouldn't they accept it? The only reason would be if they've already granted the visa. Up until then you can add documents (if you applied online) and clearly a later expiry date gives you more time to enter the country. Unless it's a huge financial burden to you then there is no advantage to not getting and uploading a new police check pronto.

Hi all,

After obsessively watching this forum all year, I'm thrilled to say that my husband's visa has come through. We applied on 1st January and were told it would take 10-14 months, so were really pleased to receive it after just over 9 months. Like several other recent posters, our CO is Lissa, she's clearly on a roll at the moment!

Good luck to everyone else waiting, hope you all have happy news soon.
