We at first considered entering on a tourist visa and apply onshore too. But the embassy told us that we might get a no further stay on the visa (either at the time of grant or by accustoms agent when entering Australia) or we might even be send home because of entering under false pretenses (saying you're a tourist even though you want to stay and live there). So it's not certain that this way would have been better! The conclusion that we in fact intend to apply onshore would have been quite obvious. We then choose the offshore way (we didnt want to lie at the border or have any other problems that might have effected any future visas) and were lucky.

So I guess you've made the right choice, even though it's tough at the moment. The letter sounds like a good solution and might help! I keep my fingers crossed for you! The German IP was just a guess coz I'd say it's more likely that it might be Germany. Even more in case your newest registered address is in Germany...

What area are you from?

Hi,

We have the receipts for the Police checks and the Health check.

We have uploaded these onto the Immi account. Do we now need to click the button saying information provided? under [when you have provided the requested documents please click the below to notify the department] or do we need to wait until we get the police checks and health check back?

Just wondering if its ok click this button to notify them even though its just the receipts?

Regards,
Daniel

Thanks God I received my early Xmas present yesterday. They called and said it is being processed now in China. They estimate everything to be finished within next two months. What a relief!

I am originally from around Hannnover. But I have been deregistered from China since 2008 and are since then living in China.

I'd walt until you received the police checks and upload them before clicking - coz the receipt does not contain the info they need to make a decision.

Just noticed on my ImmiAccount (and DoHA website) that the processing times for PMV 300 have been updated and are quicker times.

75% of apps in 12 months
90% of apps in 16 months

We have been seeing some very quick grants so far in 2017. Good luck to all
