Yeah only notification I got was because I called DC, redirected to Ottawa, who then called DC, to have them return my call. @[email protected]

They told me they lodged it on Wed 19th (3 days after receiving) and payment today Fri 21st (5 days after receiving) - and yet still not a word. Had I not followed up, I'd still be wondering.

A good way do add some certainty to offshore partner visa payments is to have the Australian sponsor pre-pay the visa application fee in Australia at a DIAC office (therefore exact AUD amount paid in AUD), then send the payment receipt with the application. While a few embassies and posts have a limitation on these types of payments, generally they work well for offshore partner applications, and avoid the crazy exchange rates (and extra charges) that can happen with international credit card transactions. If your sponsor is not in Australia, you can have a (trusted!) friend, agent, etc make the payment for you here and send you the receipt from DIAC.
