I am sure if they said everything is fine then you shouldn't worry.

I have been advised differently to you. I called the European Service Centre in London today and they said if you get the automated health assessment option then you should go ahead with the referral letter and book the appointment. She said, in the past applicants were told to wait for the CO to give them the go ahead. Now its advised to book if you see this in your immi account.

This is only what I was told today which differs from what others have said in these forums.

Good luck.

I did at one point about 2 months ago email the department in London (overseas queries on the website) and they replied about a month later to say that everything seemed fine and we were in line and no further information was required at this point.

Jan/Feb applicants PMV

Hi all,

it's been so quiet lately. Did anyone get a PMV who applied in January/February this year? I applied at the 26th of February this year and was just wondering where in the line I am.

We applied for PMV in Oct 2015 and have submitted all the required documents within the same month.
Its now been over a year now and we're still waiting..

hmmm well since i also have the health assessment option I might just go ahead and do it. we have been waiting for nearly nine months already so i think it would be almost time to do the health check surely.

I applied in Dec 15 with my Norwegian partner, she did medicals before we applied. Got a request for a police cert early January, provided it a few days later (knew they were gonna ask for it obviously). All quite since then, I'm going f***ing mental waiting!!!
I get angrier every day thinking about how much money we paid for such an appalling service.

Hi guys,
So I decided to go ahead and do the medical (organise it for my partner). Got the Hap from the immi account etc etc and rang for an appointment on Friday which they said ring back on Monday (typical of italy). Then today our email arrived to tell us to do the medicals!! Talk about good timing. It also requested all the financial proof, which I already did but obviously it's not good enough. Not much else I can do, I'll have to try again and add some more evidence not that I have much.

Request for more information

Hi All,

Just thought I would share with you what happened after we received a request for more information.

We were asked to provide 10 photos and also do an Immigration Health Examination. We uploaded the photos online as requested and also did the medical exam in Zurich.
The request asked us to contact them to let them know when this had been completed.

Specifically it states:

"You must respond to this request within 70 days after you are taken to have received this letter. You should provide your response in writing.

Please send your response to me using the contact details provided below."


The contact details provided below were:

"CONTACT VIA: border.gov.au/forms/europe"

So I used the form and let them know that the information had been completed. I received an email back a few days later saying that their records show that more information was requested and to check my spam folder etc. Not exactly what I was expecting as a response.

I thought I would log in and check the application status online, the status is still "Information requested" however when clicking "View application status" I noticed a button that said "Information provided" with a description above it saying "When you have provided the requested documents please click the button below to notify the department." I have now clicked that and it said a case officer would be notified.

Just thought I would share that as there was nothing letting me know that I had to click that button.

Hey everyone, My partner (Swiss) and I (Australian) applied on April 6th, we have not heard a single thing.

We were looking at the timelines of others and thought that maybe 10 months would be about right before the visa was granted. But, its been 7 months and we haven't heard anything.

On the immi website the Partner Visa application shows "received" and the Sponsorship shows "submitted"

Also as we were starting a RTW trip in September we went ahead and got the medical and police checks done in August.

Are others in the same situation or should we be worrying?
