If you've submitted all the required documents, why not use the enquiry form and request it to be processed?

Thank you! I didn't know we could do this. We have a migration agent but to be honest she is not proactive at all. I will follow up on this link.
Thanks again

They're not liable for what you do with any info they give you, even if it's wrong. It's even stated on the immigration website that wait times posted are from date of eligibility.

Think about it logically, if they were based on submission, that would imply that only by submitting documents for Stage 2 would you go into the queue. Therefore, not submitting documents means you never go in queue. Which also means that people in fake relationships, or in cases where the relationship has ended and PR won't be granted due to the breakdown, people would just never submit documents for Stage 2 and get to stay in Australia indefinitely.

We know that's definitely not the case as they will get to you whether you've submitted documents or not. So clearly wait times are based on eligibility and not submission.

THIS. My partner was just approved for his second stage 100 visa, 2 months and 2 weeks after eligibility. And we had only put the application in two weeks ago! Hurry up and get those docs in, we are breathing sighs of relief that we got pretty much everything in before they looked at it, and he was approved.

Our timeline was:

We submitted his application for 309 visa on 30th Aug 2016 in Canada
Uploaded all docs over the following 3 weeks
Approved 24th Feb 2017
Eligible for 100 processing 30th Aug 2018
Submitted application for second stage 100 visa 27th Oct 2018
Uploaded evidence over next 2 weeks, still had some to go
Approved 10th November 2018 (2 months and 2 weeks from eligibility, and 2 weeks from submitting application!)

We only had 2 of the 3 stat decs we were going to submit, and weren't asked for the AFP police check either. Have put a list of everything we uploaded in this other thread if anyone is interested https://www.australiaforum.com/visas...-visa-270.html

Congratulations!
You are so lucky but also from a low risk country which would help.
We have submitted everything that is required and then some but no CO as yet. I am going to send an enquiry via the link supplied by Skyebluebrewer and hopefully speed things up.

Congratulations! That is absolutely amazing and I'm so happy for you! You didn't need AFPs? That would be great if that's the case, as I've supplied as much as you did (actually a little more, in that we had 2 weddings, one in Aus and one in the US). The only thing I haven't done yet are the AFPs because I figured I'd wait on them a bit since who knows how long it'll take to process the 2nd stage. I started submitting my stuff a month early (as soon as I got the email from IMMI to do so) and finished about a month ago. I would be awed and completely giddy if they started processing all of our 2nd stage apps that fast! Well done, You!!

Lady it doesn't matter if they expire. I got written confirmation from the processing dept and also the 100 was granted without an updated one. It was about 4 or 5 months expired. Total wait time 19 months

So I don't need to do new ones? Or you're saying go ahead and do new ones, because even if they expire, they won't ask for another round for the 801? I'd be happy not to have to do yet another round, as I've had to do three AFPs just for my teaching! LOL

Speaking of, shoot...just realised that I have to renew my Working With Children card in a few months. >.<

Meaning you can submit them at time of Stage 2 eligibility and they don't "expire" (for Stage 2 only. Stage 1 checks are only valid for 12 months). Edit: based on what Aussie83 has said and others that have shared personal experience on this forum.

Also for anyone else reading, you only need them if they weren't supplied at Stage 1. So if you supplied an AFP at Stage 1, you wouldn't need to do it again for Stage 2.

Oh! I thought I had to do them again for Stage 2. I did them for Stage 1 and submitted everything (FBI and AFP checks). So basically, I can hit the Provided all documents button, since I wouldn't need to do them again. Should I upload the checks from the 1st stage?

You shouldn't even need to upload old ones.

"Provide an Australian police certificate if you didn't provide it for your temporary Partner visa and for any country you have lived in since you were granted the subclass 820 [or 309] visa."

Of course the exception is if they specifically request them of you, which they've also been known to do.

I only supplied an AFP as I didn't need one for Stage 1. I did not upload any other police checks, including the ones I submitted for Stage 1 (FBI or state). Went straight to grant.
