It actually changes from "Submitted" (first status) to "In Progress" (second status). Unfortunately, that change really means nothing. You won't see any changes in that status until they finalise the visa. They will ask you if you have not provided documents they require. That's the only way you know, typically - if they need nothing, you won't have much (if any) contact with them.

I'm getting really nervous... I sent an email to ask about my police certificate and I haven't gotten a reply yet, it must have arrived by now as I sent it by Express Post. I don't want to overstay my visa and get into trouble I only have a week left if I don't buy a ticket somewhere they're going to become too expensive and I can't afford a return ticket home, I mean with current rates it would be at least 3000 dollars and I haven't been able to work for the past 9 months. No matter how much money you save up 9 months unemployed will suck out your savings. :'(

When I applied for the visa it said on the website it could take up to 5 months it wasn't until I started reading this forum that I realised it would probably be about 6 months and now it's been 7 and it's just completely thrown me off schedule. I even thought it wouldn't even take 5 months because it said depending on the complexity of the case and seeing as how we don't have kids never been married no criminal record together more than 2 years etc I really thought it was an easy case.

Sorry for ranting I know everyone around me (in real life) is sick of all my complaining I just thought here everyone could relate since a lot of us are in the same boat caught up in the bureaucratic system that is immigration.

Welcome to the club! About a week ago we felt the same frustration but there is actually nothing we can do but wait. We, and heaps of others on this forum, are in the same situation (except the financial situation). Very straight forward, meets all requirements, low risk country, etc. We have been waiting for more than 7,5 months. When we lodged our (end of Nov) it said 6-9 months on their website and since summer started it seems like closer to 9 months is the new 6. So, all we can do is to be patient and wait. Our time will come.

Our provisional partnership visa was granted this morning (6 months & 1 day). This morning I woke up determined not to think about the visa, not to check my email a million times...then my fiancÚ called. I'm so excited to go home!!!! Feeling very overwhelmed as well at the moment-now gotta move continent, each of us get new jobs , oh, and I'm planning our wedding for December in Australia too-ahhhh!!!
Keep strong, the wait is more than worth it. Fingers crossed for everyone that you will get that wonderful email soon

Congrats! And my standard question... Who was your CO?

Edit: Never mind... Saw from an old post it is/was JK.

Hi guys,
It was a Partner Provisional 309 visa. Our CO was JK. Pretty standard story-we didn't hear a single thing along the way, except emails asking for health / police checks and then the last email we received back in March told us they had all the documents required.
Tears have stopped, reality of the big move kicking in!!
