Asking for ANY information about your case seems to be a taboo now a days with the DIAC lol

Re: medical

Thank u all for ur well wishes.
I just wanted to say that front loading ur app with the medicals and police checks is kind of a catch 22.
On one hand if u front load it u might get approved faster. And they will need to only contact u once ur visa is approved or if they need more info from you.
On the other hand if u dont front load it, it might be slower. They will contact when u have satisfied the genuine relationship and they will request med and police check. This way u have some sort of contact with co and therefore gague of how ur app is going. Plus less chance of med and police check expiring. Jus in case there is some hold up.
To each their own tho. This is ONLY my insight. Hopefully it will help someone.

It has been a brutal and agonizing process. Now that we finally have our approval its surreal. All the stress, sadness, and anxiety from spending weeks sometimes months apart is finally over. And although I have never posted on this site before I have recently been looking at it constantly just to see what other people's time lines are like. Mine was almost at the 8 month mark and my patience was wearing thin. This forum however, was amazing. It is nice to know that all the feelings that thoughts that I was having were normal. Thank you all.
Welcome to the forum and thanks for the update on your application. It is nice to hear that something is coming out of DC, it gives us some indication as to where they are up to in the processing.

Oh and congratulations on your visa

IMHO, if you are applying from a low risk country like the USA, I would recommend front loading your police checks and medicals as the process is usually under 12 months and having a decision ready application can speed up the process. If you are applying from Kenya etc then don't bother IMHO, as the process will more than likely be over the 12 month mark. That is just my opinion based on what I have read.
You can see from my timeline that I front loaded the police checks but not the medicals but I did have my medical in before I was assigned a case officer and told them that now my medical was in that our application should be considered decision ready, not that at this point that it seems to have helped at all as we are still waiting on the 309.
