You shouldn't be leaving it to the day of anyway. Immigration won't ve sympathetic to delayed flights or long lines at immigration. I'd give myself 5-7 days in advance to arrive.

Thanks for the reply but this doesn't answer my question at all....

But if you're keen on taking the risk, it's a must make first entry BEFORE so you need to enter before that date.

Thanks! on my grant letter it was stated as "by" rather than before so I wasn't 100% clear on it. We will plan to arrive on the day before or two days before. In the worst case scenario if a flight is cancelled or majorly delayed we will just have to find a costlier flight to get us into Australia. We plan to go from Singapore or Malaysia and there's tons going from there.

Interesting as mine said "Before". If you read the entire grant letter, it explains what's in it.

Mine said this further on: "First entry date: You must make your first entry to Australia before (date). It is not possible to change this date."

Just don't miss your date or your visa will be cancelled.

Hello all

First off - thanks for all who have posted. I've been following this forum a bit.
I applied Dec. 16th for my 309. March 20th got a letter requesting more information. My overseas police check finally came in a few weeks ago, I submitted it (April 20th) and I am now at 'Further Assessment' - Any clue how long that takes from people's past experiences?

Also - my letters have been signed by 'Ingrid' Is she my case officer? Is there any way to get in touch if need be?

It is hard to speculate when exactly your visa will be finalised after requests for information.

Some wait a 1 week after supplying requested info for a grant, some wait 1 year. Sometimes they ask for further information again, which can set more delays.

Generally speaking, the good news is if they have requested police checks and medicals and you have supplied them, you are close.

After supplying requested medicals and police checks for my fiances visa - we received our grant 2 weeks after uploading them.

i'm on the same boat as you, applied in October 20th and got the request for additional information on March 8th. I had submitted the medical and police check by March 14 and have not heard anything back.

I replied to the email from the case officer stating that I had fulfilled the requirement and received a confirmation a week later. so you could try to reply to the email.

Ottawa Timelines 309

Hi Everyone,
Wanted to check in to see how other people’s timelines are going.
I am a Canadian Citizen and applied for 309 in Dec 2017 and have been assigned a case officer in Ottawa in March.
They requested medicals and some documentation which was all completed by April. My health assessment says
“Health clearance provided – no action required
All health examinations required for the specified visa subclass have been finalised. Processing of this person's visa application can now continue. This will not occur until a case officer investigates the case in line with published processing times for the visa that has been applied for. Do not contact the department about health examinations in the meantime.”

Any idea how long it should take?
