There is definitely a lot of conflicting information out there -- it depends on who you talk to and what department they are in. For example, the Embassy in Washington has very different suggestions than the embassy in Germany or the DIAC themselves for that matter... as if the whole process wasn't demanding and confusing enough already!
Thanks so much, that actually gives a time frame of 6-7 weeks and is the most recent dates.

Checking in to see how you guys are doing...

I'm still waiting, no word from the CO. (Part of me wonder if s/he went on vacation). My FI and I are getting married in 45 days here in the USA. *tapping fingers* We'll be reaching the 6 month mark November 4th from time they "accepted" my PMV application.

Nevermind... I saw you went for Sub 309.

I do wonder if 300 has been capped.
How do you know if they put a cap on subclass 300? Is there a web sight to look it up?

Now I am just waiting for the FBI check and for my SO additional information to arrive in Washington. My CO said she will let us know when she gets the additional information. It is suppose to arrive on Thursday.

I called the Ottowa/enquiry phone number for Washington DC. Processing time is between 5 months to 12 months. She told me "You can't move to Australia until the visa gets approved" when I told her that we planned on going over together after our honeymoon/holidays here in the USA.

I am heartbroken.

The health reports are still under review. I wonder if it has something to do with Sydney being backlogged (rep did confirm they are being reviewed there). The rep says she does not know anything about them being backlogged.

What happens when you get a visa approval email? Does the CO request that you send your passport to them so they can attach the visa? How long does that usually take? What's the process after approval? (Got a feeling hubby's visa might be approved very, very soon).

It takes time and you need to be patient, I know that my co is working on over 200 applications. Washington D.C. was also affected by Hurricane Sandy.
