It's a punt; in our case it paid off.

It took us 4 months of consistent work to put the application together.

We couldn't have done it without this forum.
Hi,was just wondering did you put any 'note' it was a "decision ready application"? I've read all sorts of advices on the forum, but couldn't figure out if I have all the required documents should the department know this, so I don't wait longer in the "queue" ...

It does still go into the queue though.
Hi, me & my hubbs are about apply for a 309 partner/offshore, so I was just wondering do we put any 'note' it's a "decision ready application"? I've read all sorts of advices on the forum, but couldn't figure out - if we have all the required documents should the department know this, so I don't wait longer in the "queue" ...I read that police and health docs do not have to be submitted until they (or if they) ask you to do so (call back).. If I am informed correctly, this is for an offshore.
Thanx in advance

You will wait in the queue regardless. Gone are the days where a decision ready application bumps you up.

To have a decision ready application anyway means you need to include your police checks and medical which are only valid for 12 months. You risk having to redo them or getting a very short space if time to enter Australia.

I know there are a lot of applications sent for the DIAC to look through (thousands), I am aware of that, and we will wait as long as it takes, I was just wondering do we need to put any note, apart from all the required documents.
I am also aware of that info concerning police&med check, like I already wrote.
As for your last sentence, I will stay positive and not think about it like that.

Thanx.

Still awaiting a reply from philipg and rufa!

Hannah, almost every embassy is now telling applicants NOT to front-load their medicals and police checks due to exactly what kmarees said. She gave you excellent advice. I understand wanting to speed up the process, but there is absolutely no way to do that anymore. Philipg got very, very lucky. The vast majority of people frontloading their applications these days from high-risk countries like yours are doing nothing but shooting themselves in the foot and making themselves have to spend the money on medicals and police checks all over again, or finding themselves with very little time to enter the country if they get lucky and their applications take less than a year. Check with whichever embassy you would send your application to and see what they suggest re: medicals and police checks. My money is on them specifically saying NOT to do your medicals until requested.
