hooray

My visa was approved! I applied on October 20, 2015, with everything uploaded upfront. I didn't hear anything from them at all until I got the email on April 4, 2016 that my visa was granted! They gave me the subclass 100. Pretty easy!

Nice. Good for you guys! That's 2 x subclass 100 visa grants in the last few weeks processed in under 6 months. Go Canada Office. lol

So we are still waiting for our RCMP check.
Today we received an email from the Ottawa office asking about our RCMP check. It stated the document was due on 25 January 2016 and to date they have not received it.
First of all we were unaware of this date and have gone back and checked and was never notified of this date. I however updated our online file with the receipt and proof of applying prior to this date. I also emailed our case officer on January 26th 2016 stated we still had not received but got no response.
The kicker is the emailed continued to say the following
"Please note that this email does not give you an extension of time to submit the outstanding documentation, and that a decision may be made on your visa application at any time after 15 April 2016."
I quickly emailed them and attached the receipt again and told them we were still waiting and if they could contact me in regards of what to do next.
I just received a call from them stating that the 15th will be upheld and no extension will be given and if they have not received the document by then they will the make a decision based on the information they already have.
I'm sick to my stomach that now we will be refused due to not having this document and will loose out on not only our dream to live in Australia as a family but a substainal amount of money.
I just don't know what to do next apart from wait with baited breath that it comes in the next week before the deadline.

Any way you can contact the RCMP and ask to have that check expedited? Maybe pay more or something?

We have contacted them on numerous occasions by phone and by email and have been told there is nothing they can do all we can do is wait. You can't even leave a message as their mailbox is full and emails aren't returned in a timely manner it took 2 months to get a response from one of my emails.
We contacted RCMP general enquiries and they said they can't do anything and they receive many complaints about the criminal check department.

Here's what I would do in your situation. I'd rush out to one of the accredited companies listed on the RCMP site and pay for them to do another check. If they have any expedited service pay for that, but at least get another one going. Seems like that other check got lost or tied up or something.

If you have no record it shouldn't take that long. Maybe redoing it you could get one in time to upload before they make that decision.

Im just a little worried that they can also refuse on the fact that we have only known each other for 8 months. Is that too little? Even though the PMV has no time frame, I wonder if all those factors will be a negative decision!

Im a big stress head! Its only been 2 weeks since a submitted my application! Its going to be a lonnnnnnnnnng road ahead!
Hi Chookie

First off, try to relax as i think you realize its gonna be a long road ahead, you dont want your health to take a dive, stress can play all sorts of roles on the body, we are at 13months waiting with no contact from embassy except for an email thru our agent in Adelaide who forwarded a screenshot onto my email showing the embassy has "assessment in process" as of 2nd Feb 2016..but nothing heard since,my fiancee lives in a high risk country also, you can read a little about our situation on my other posts ( i've only made a couple of posts since joining a few days ago with this forum)..I agree with you about its very tough & stressful & i really liked reading your post asking help!!

Take Care & Good Luck

Hi Chookie

If you read my post on page 4 of the thread titled
"Partner Visa - Moscow Waiting Room" you will read abit about our situation, she is from "Kyrgyzstan" the embassy is Moscow that is handling it
Yes we applied about 3 to 4months after lodging PMV..it got rejected so we put together a tonne of evidence and lodged a second time for tourist visa & it was denied again saying about not enough reason to return to her country, no history of travelling & a few other reasons which i can't recall now as i'm with my fiance in Kyrgyzstan currently for another few weeks & the info is at home in Oz.
What city are you located?

Good luck with ya Tourist Visa
