Hi EestiAus,

We applied by paper and were notified by email so I am pretty sure notification of visa grants always come by email unless you have chosen not to communicate with the department via email...then I think it will come by 'snail mail'.

What to do?

Hi Everyone

Iv'e been looking at this site for quite a while now, and just decided to jump on and involve myself a little. I take my hat of for all of you that is waiting for so long and always seems postive and patient. Impressive!

I applied for partner visa 309/100, lodged application 28th of January 2014, medical test 8th of april, my CO is JK, I am norwegian. Got an e-mail almost a week ago (26th of May) from my CO, telling me that it is no longer need for me to send any documents anymore. btw, Does that mean the answer is not too far away?

I have been in Australia from August 2011 till August 2013 on a Working Holiday Visa. Met my FiancÚ at work in 2012, soon been together for two years. He was in Norway in November last year where he romantically proposed to me in the forest on his knees in the snow. He already bought the ring in Australia which was my perfect sign that he know me and my taste

We have been rented a place (big house) since 6th of June 2013, and he still live there waiting for me (unfortunately we've only really lived together for almost 3 months since my visa expired and we didn't wanna rush moving together too fast) He is 14 years older than me (I am 27), and it seems probably weird for many of you, but love does not have an age...thank god for that!

My question now is... in the application (paper, not online) we wrote that the wedding will be in September 2014 OR September 2015. Now the date and time is totally changed because of practical reasons because we want the wedding in Norway. So the wedding will be in June 2015. Church is not yet booked (complicated, but it is an outside church in ruins and we need to have a chat with the priest together first) but the place the wedding party and dinner will be is booked. The invitations we will do together when he is here in Norway in July. so the question is, should I tell our CO about the wedding changes? Or will this make a lot more paperwork and delay everything? I was just thinking that maybe yhat will have a lot to say?!

I am afraid that we did not have enough relationship prove's as so many others had. We have a joint bankaccount, rent a place together, got statuary declarations from the owners and more people, pictures of us and trips and family, We even have the same tattoo, and all that stuff.
But I am worried that the age difference will be negative? And the fact that I have ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) with documents from doctors of course. I am scared that all this will be negative?

I have an degree, I am totally clean on every other point, never been a bad girl. But some days I think I am going crazy just waiting for my life and the answer. And being away from him is making me crazy. Him too, but he is more calm and believe everything will be fine soon. I am very stressed.

Any advice??

Thanks for any answers here I am totally new on this, don't know if I did this right... and I apologise for such a long message.
Fingers crossed for all of you

Hi Carrinya,

I am by no means an expert but I will try and give you my opinion...When they say they don't need any more paperwork, it generally means they have the bits that they need to consider your application but it doesn't indicate when the decision on your visa is likely to come. The waiting period at the moment seems to be about 6 months or so from lodgement date. We have just got out 100 visa a week ago and we applied on 12 November, so as it seems to work pretty much in a queue from lodgement date, I assume they are still deciding visas from November as there are a few people in this thread who also lodged in November but haven't received their decisions yet...

I would say be honest with your CO and tell them the date change of the wedding. Honesty is the best policy. They will then advise if they need any confirmation or proof of your chosen wedding date (e.g. venue booking confirmation or a copy of a wedding invite when you have them).

I don't think the age difference would be a negative. I don't think the COs are there to judge the details of your relationship in that respect, only to confirm that the relationship is genuine and continuing. It sounds to me that you have supplied plenty of information about your relationship. So long as you have given them everything you can, then that is all you can do! They seem to feel they have enough information about your relationship which is why they don't need any more documents from you at this point.

As for the ADD, I don't know if that would be an issue or not...maybe someone else has had some experience in this area?

Good luck! Hope it all works out for you!

Thank you so much for such a quick answer Wifey

First of all, congrats with the good news about the visa 100!! I believe that feels pretty good!

I would believe so, to let the CO know so I am not so stressed about that. I just don't want to bother her too much since I did just ask her about something. But I reckon it is better to ask too much than too less.

Since he is in Australia and I am in norway, things about the wedding will take some time, but I reckon it's better to do it properly.

About the ADD, they got all the documents they need for that, and also it is documented it helps me a lot with concentration. I am not hyperactive

Thanks again for your answer
