[QUOTE=amor e fé;85095]Hi all

I am about to submit the visa paperwork, but have one quick question.

Did everybody photocopy the application? It would be devestating if it got lost in the post, but to copy the almost 200 pages is expensive.

Just wanted to see what you all did.

Thanks [/QUOTTo make sure ours didnt get lost we sent it so every time it was handed over it was signed for and tracked and had to be signed for at immigration . It cost but it was woth the peace of mind

Just happy to inform that my PMV application was granted. Never been easy, but submitted all the documents properly and got it granted with in the mentioned average processing time period of 7 months.

Nationality: India

Visa type: PMV (Sub class 3001)

Offshore/onshore: Offshore

Medicals submitted (yes/no): yes

Police check submitted (yes/no): yes

Date CO assigned: 29/10/2012

"One hell of an experience" !! but proves I will go through anything to be with my love.

I was granted a tourist visa after the CO was assigned and was in Australia till 17th of March, and right now in Indonesia for two weeks. Will be entering Australia by 4th of April.

I wish all the best to everyone who is awaiting for a grant notice. Take care.

I photocopied a good portion of it. Didn't copy emails i had printed as I had originals, def copied certified documents I was sending off and any other originals I was sending like the forms and letters from ministers or employers. It is worth the money and time to do it in my opinion and they tell you to do so. It will also be helpful down the like if you are applying for other visa's as you may use some of this info and they MAY NOT send it back to you.

Hi All,

That is right. With my experience, I photocopied the forms me and my fiance submitted and the police check as well. the emails and other communication samples will be better if it is printed out from the internet. NOIM was also copied just to ensure that I have a copy of it just in case it gets lost. So far the courier they are tied up are responsible and knows how to take care of these documents.

Goodluck! Waiting is fun and inspiring! The more you want to be with the love of your life. Just like me, now excited to see him in a month

Cheers,
Angeliqueprince

Hello Gerrywins

My husband applied on Dec 27th 2012 and just read your story and hope that we do not have to wait for another 18 months. He already has had contact with CO on 5th March. Its unfortunate its taken that long for you and I just hope it has nothing to do with Kenya.

Hold on. I am sure that by August they cant possibly keep you waiting any longer!!!
