We gathered comprehensive evidence, luckily i always keep documents , so we had enough evidence to present. How to present our evidence i researched online from posts of previous applicants ,and that was invaluable and really assisted. Ideas like keeping updating evidence,got it on forums .So we always got new police clearance ahead of time , and started keeping communication evidence while apart.

By the way we regularly updated new evidence throughout the process.[/QUOTE] thank you for taking time to post. Most people disappear after having their visa granted... also, all readers that are not registered please do so and post your vies/share your experience. It will be a hope for us to hear some good news. The wait is not easy at all, and when we have others as well in same situation, we feel relatable.[/QUOTE]

So true. It's very encouraging, this space.

is your 4 months wait , from the the initial application or after request for further information?

you do not update every week or month. Mind that there is a limit of documents to upload , and you do not just want to upload repetitive things and have too much unnecessary documents . With Police clearance , they expire after 12 months as per visa applications so these you do close to their expiry dates .Other evidence like communication while apart,(very important) e.g itemized billing, watsup chats, call logs,emails etc its best to collect them over a prolonged period, then like 6 months upload them. Remember these are within your control because you have them ,and they are always ready at any request, if you have been keeping them, they are unlike police clearance which one have to apply and wait for and this can cause further delays.

thanks for your message of encouragement, actually there has been no communication since date of lodging so no further evidence was requested. Praying for a quick and smooth process.

Hello there
I have already uploaded the NOIM and havent received any communication yet. The date is end of Aug2019 but do I have to change the date if visa still not granted? or I wait till CO contacts me? What date should I then insert? If someone can share their views or was in the same situation?

From memory, the Marriage Celebrant told us that it was easy to change the date if the visa wasn't granted in time.
We lodged the NOIM late though and allowed plenty of time, so it wasn't an issue we experienced

We just changed ours because we have been waiting 15 months now and the waiting time were not so long when we applied. It was simple -we just resubmitted our noim along with a letter from our priest explaining the change of date due to visa not granted yet and thus sponsor not yet in the country. I suppose it would be similar with a celebrant.
