Hi guys,

I'm excited to share that we finally, after 17 months, received our visa on 6 September.

I'm South African, husband is Australian
Applied: 30 March 2018 (PC and medical included - applied ourselves)
RFI: 12 July 2019 (new PC's for me and husband, new medical and form 4009)
Documents submitted 15 July 2019
PC submitted 6 September - Visa granted 1 hour after PC was submitted.
First entry by 6 September 2020

I've been granted permanent residency - My husband and I were in a relationship for 3 years before applying and have since gotten married and had a baby, who has Aus citizenship by descent.

Although it's taken a long time, my husband and I were lucky enough to have been together the whole time, he has been working in SA on a temporary resident visa. Now it's time for us to plan this move back to Aus.

Good luck everyone and thanks for all the assistance. This forum really helped us to get my visa application together.

@NadsB - Thank you for your response. But my question remains - Where do we email them? Do you have an email address that you have used? Thanks for your assistance.
Hi AnjB, [email protected]. That’s the email addy I used to submit all the requested documents.

The forum has been quiet for a few weeks. Anyone else have any updates?

My summary so far :
18th May 2018 - Applied for PMV, front loaded Medical and all PCCs. I am an Australian citizen and partner is Malawian

1st August 2019 - first contact from DHA for RFI and updated PCCs

19th August 2019 - evidence submitted with PCCs from the countries we had resided in since application was made

27th Sept 2019 - received request from case officer for PCCs for my partner from 2 countries resided in last 10 years but not since application made.

11th Oct 2019 - submitted PCCs as requested. Email from case officer on same day now requesting a PCC for me from a country that I have never resided in entire life. Emailed back to ask why with no answer to date.

16th October 2019 - investigated with the police from the country requested by CO and told that I am unable to get a PCC from them as I had never resided in the country. Submitted a stat Dec to CO stating this the same day.

Now just waiting again....
