Visa Granted Visa Granted Visa Granted

So we emailed off my OH updated police clearance this afternoon which we applied for after not hearing back from two emails we sent in early september to our case officer asking if it was needed (old one expires 22nd October). He sent an email confirming he had received it followed soon after her Grant!!! We are off to australia on the 9th November. I already have a job including a house starting 16th November so all has fallen into place. Hang in there all those still waiting, we know the wait is tough but the feeling once it comes is worth all the anxiety.

Congratulations! It's so difficult to know that the process takes so long (my partner and I have probably another 8 month wait) and it's so stressful to be so far away from each other for so long but it is encouraging to see people's applications being processed... So happy for you guys!

Has anyone had any visa updates lately? Has anyone that's had theirs granted recently got further info on who their case officer was?

Granted!

Hello everyone!

Sharing the exciting news that my husband's partner visa was granted yesterday, Oct 19th. Here is our timeline:

Me: Australian (living in the UK for last 9 years)
Husband: British

Jan 28th 2015 - Applied for offshore partner visa - London office

Feb 16th 2015 - Contacted by Case Officer Lee Champion to say we had satisfied relationship requirements and to wait until July 28th for Police and Health Checks

July/August 2015 - Completed Health and Police checks (anyone who requires a police check from Bermuda expect it to take a while)

Oct 19th 2015 - Partner Visa granted

We can now puts the wheels in motion for our move in early 2016.

I am more than happy to share my experiences with anyone of our whole visa process. It seems strange but the advice I received on here that "no news is good news" seems to have been very accurate. They only seem to contact when something is wrong or they need further info.

Best of luck to all those going through the process!!

Tom

Oh CONGRATULATIONS!!! What fantastic news, my partner applied the day after you so my fingers and toes are crossed we hear some news soon! We got engaged last week so it would be such a fantastic way to end the year if we could head back to Australia for Christmas! Thanks for sharing as well, seeing everyone getting their grants and sharing advice has made the experience a little less stressful! Good luck!

We obviously don't know all the facts of other applications but something doesn't sit right with the different timings. We've been waiting 14 months and only received instructions to go for the health/police checks after prompting our case owner.

The tip to others is to e-mail your case owner; and you can jump the queue.
