i see, i didnt know that. anyway we have been together for slightly less than 3 years.
well, they process thousands of applications every year. the immigration website tell you how many, i can't remember exactly.
you can assume that the immi officers get plenty of emails asking for the same questions : "is it ok? will i have my visa soon? i'm still waiting you know", or something that sounds like that.
so i imagine they can become upset having to reply the same thing all the time.
that would explain why they don't talk much.

but yes, i fully agree, from the applicant's perspective, silence is worrying. you expect they may not grant the visa. that is especially hard, when you have a plan to move for a long term and sold the car, sold the apartment, quit the job etc...

You kind of have your life on hold. You can't really make any arrangements to make the move as you don't know what is going on with your application.
You just don't know what to do. I am even afraid to book the flights. I would like to be there sometime in October, and the sooner I book the better deal I get. But it's too risky at this stage.

Oh well I guess we just have to wait and see. There isn't really much we can do at this stage but bite our nails and hope for the best!
Hopefully my case officer ( should be the same as yours) gives us the news we want to here.

I never thought I would be so happy to get out of my comfort zone. Scary I must say, but more than ready for it

When r you planing to travel?

There is actually a limit date to enter. If you don't enter the country before that date they cancel your visa. That is beginning of August for me
Since I have a 3 months notice to quit my job I will go there in August then fly back then fly there again for good later in 2012, I target November or December

Are you Sure that the limit to enter he country is August?. They say entry date is one year apart form your medicals. August is quite soon, specially for us as me partner has to give 2 months notice at least.

Yes the date to enter seems awfully short. I hope that's not the case for us! We are also expecting our visa to be granted soon. Hubby is French!

The use to medicals or police check as a reference correct? I recall reading this somewhere.

Hi Rufa,

I hope this does something to put your mind at ease...

(Booklet 1127 - Partner Migration, p.45)
Quote:
Initial entry date to Australia

If you are outside Australia when you are granted a partner category visa, you will be required to make your first entry to Australia by a certain date.

You will be told your initial entry date in the letter you receive from the department advising you of the grant of your visa. The purpose of this initial entry date is to ensure that persons migrate to Australia within a reasonable period of being granted a visa so that the planning levels for settler services for newly arrived migrants are sufficient.

The date is usually tied to the earliest date of the validity periods of any health and character checks you had as part of the process of applying for a partner category visa.
Although they do say 'usually' so it doesn't rule out anything strange happening. Hmmm...

This might also help, immediately after that excerpt (pg.46):

Quote:
Before your partner category visa is granted, if you know that the date will not allow you a reasonable period for you to finalise your affairs and make the necessary arrangements to travel to Australia, you must advise the office of the department that is processing your visa application of your circumstances and consideration will be given to a later initial entry date. However, you may need to undergo new health or character checks before your visa can be granted.

After your partner category visa has been granted, an initial entry date cannot be changed and, unless exceptional and compelling circumstances can be proven, your visa may be cancelled. You would need to re-apply for a visa.
So at least they give you a chance to ask for an postponement, so to speak.

Hi adventuress

I was under the impression that was the correct information too. But as newinoz got his visa this week he has TO enter Austrália some time around august.

This date, even sept is too early and a waste of money if We Have TO be their so soon.

I wish newinoz could give us more feedback

Hmmm yes I see now that from the date of newoz's application, his initial entry date being August is only 7 months after the application was received, at a maximum.

That is worrying... I also hope he can come back and enlighten us Maybe he did his checks four months early...? Clutching at straws here to try to explain...

But I just had a thought - since high-risk country visas are going to take 12 months, and meds and police checks are only valid for 12 months, does that mean they will effectively force applicants to get new meds and police checks??!
