Hi Bruce, I have asked by email twice and received a response2 weeks later with a formal email response stating the same processing times as per their website. My fiance has contacted our CO by phone and had a casual chat "just following up to make sure everything is ok....."

We just received some very bad news. Our CO asked us to send him a reminder in July so perhaps he could finalise our visa before we leave for Australia tomorrow. Then he sent us an email saying he couldn't finalise it because my current stay in Australia has brought my total stay over 12 months and therefore I have to hand in a police certificate from Canberra. We weren't aware that time during processing would count as I hadn't stayed for over 8 months at the time of our application. Why weren't we informed of this sooner? We could've applied and sent it to him ages ago. Why were we only told now about this? This means I can't start looking for work nor I can start my studies until the next semester and it will take at least three weeks for the certificate to process and I only have a month left on my tourist visa.

You can get the AFP police clearance in less than a week. Apply online for $42. We just did it, and it arrived in 4 days. Cheers and good luck. (Not sure if you are in Australia or not.)

We did apply for it just a few moments ago but the website states the average processing time is three weeks. (15 working days) The main issue however is that I'll have to leave Australia again which is expensive and means I have to spend time apart from my SO. Also that we weren't informed of this sooner and thus could have avoided this very annoying, time consuming and cost inefficient situation.

Yes... That is what they say on the website. But we were very happy when it arrived so quickly. Keep your fingers crossed. We got an email the next day after lodging, saying it would be posted by the first available mail. It was! Hope you have good luck too... Cheers....
