Any new approvals?? This office seems to be a bit inactive or just slow. Haven't seen it being mentioned anywhere in a while

Nothing to mention here! I lodged my PMV application on November 22nd, front loaded all the documents (health check provided on December 4th). I just have to upload the NOIM that my fiancee will get signed within next week in Australia.
Didn't hear anything from any CO though!

I applied on 02 of may 2019, frontloaded everything
RFI (wanted form 80 and police checks they already had) in November, we uploaded that after a week and since that nothing. I hope it's close now, would be nice if I could plan my life a bit

We got a request on the 10th of this month for AFP check for partner (she lived in Aus less than 12 months, hence why we didn't add it to the front-load application with everything else). Uploaded it on the morning on the 20th and kinda hoped it would be a grant straight away that day, but it would appear not :-( Guess we could be waiting for months again........

Is your sponsor Australian or a PR?

I'm the sponsor and I'm Australian, partner is Swedish.

Another thing I noticed, was under the online part of my sponsorship it also changed text to "approved" at the end of the applicant's part, e.g. "LASTNAME, first name (DOB) - Approved". This happened after the RFI, so I guess we were getting our hope up and thinking the police check was the last thing before grant, but I guess we're now back into the big pile and waiting once again for god knows how long

If I can ask... when did you lodged your application?

We applied in May 2019, so by average waiting time, not that long ago! Probably stupidly getting expectations up when we received the RFI, thinking our case is probably open and shut! Been together 6ish years, 2 children together and tonnes of evidence, so not stressed about getting the grant, it's more about the timeline of when. E.g. School/daycare, house, work, etc..

Hi Doolz,
That's great about your RFI! I would try to see it in a positive way- they looked at your application and you only uploaded the requested documents a few days ago which means there could be a grant any day now. 🌞
It seems like they first look at applications roughly around 8 months, so hopefully I'll hear something too in three months. Exciting!!

Thanks for the positive vibes @LindaLogisch :-)

I initially thought of it as extremely positive and that a grant was imminent, which maybe makes the waiting even harder ;-) I also know that RFI's to grant timelines are so scattered, that a grant could be today, tomorrow, next week, next month or even next year. I guess the uncertainty and the anxiety associated is the killer thing!

Hopefully the 8ish month check is true and we all get our grants sooner rather than later!!!
