Date visa granted[/B] 24/06/2011

THey told me we won't be given a CO for at least 9 months and that is the blanket rule for everyone following a change of policy in March this year. I can see from the forum that that's not entirely accurate. We submitted an "approval ready" apllication. So here's hoping that we are one of the lucky couples that get approved quickly!

Also, a tip for you all- We made up a beautiful folder with plastic sleeves etc... Don't bother, they will make you take it out and put it in a large envelope anyway! hahaha
UPDATE!!!!! Visa granted on 24th June 2011. We didn't hear anything back at all about the visa until we received a letter last week saying my fiance's visa had been granted!!! HOOORAY!!!!!

Date of application: 3rd June 2011

Nationality: British

Visa type: 309 / 100 - 100 granted (Offshore - Fiji)

Medicals submitted: 6th June 2011

Police check submitted: Fiji (April 2011), UAE (7th July 2011)

Date CO assigned:16th June 2011

Date visa granted: 11th July 2011

We frontloaded our application as best as possible, and also provided simplified evidence. Fiji is a high-risk country so typically the visa's are processed in 10 months, however I think ours went through quickly because my husband is British and we provided clear and simple evidence of our relationship. We are extremely happy and excited and I can't wait to settle in Australia to my husband.

soooo happy our visa was granted today

our timeline:
23/02/2011 – app sent reg'd post (prospective marriage)
26/02/2011 - telephone call from embassy acknowledging receipt and sending a parcel containing further info
05/03/2011 - parcel rec'd (dated 1/3) photos sent back and request for new docs x7
07/03/2011 - all docs sent and received but they "lost" them, lucky were sent reg'd post so we tracked them down to the name of the person who signed for them in embassy and magically they "found" them again! This took three weeks (wasted time ) but they were good about phoning and emailing us when they found them.
15/04/2011 - Applicant was given telephone interview (lots of qu's asked!) and they said they would send forms for medicals, these arrived next day
26/04/2011 - medicals done
06/05/2011 - medicals sent by embassy to HOC Australia for review
11/05/2011 - HOC confirmed medicals received.
04/07/2011 - HOC pass medicals
12/07/2011 - asked to send passport as visa is approved

now just waiting for the passport to come back and then we can finally start our new life (and next visa, lol), added bonus they didn't ask for an AOS which i was sure would be requested!
