My bad, sorry!

UPDATE:

Date of application: 26th May 2011

Nationality: Ukrainian

Visa type: Prospective Marriage Visa (300)

Offshore/onshore: Offshore (Moscow)

Medicals submitted (yes/no): 6th July 2011

Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes, with application

Date CO assigned: 27th May 2011

Interview: 14th July 2011 (by phone)

Date visa granted: TODAY (notified by email) 5th October 2011

Arrival to Australia: Within a month

OMG!!! I thought this day would never come!!! My gf and I put our blood, sweat and tears into the PMV application. They never requested additional documents to be sent. So it's worth sending a really detailed application. Got the PMV after waiting just under 4.5 months. It goes to show that even applicants from High Risk countries can get their visas granted early We were quoted initially it would take 6-7 months for a decision to be made (but website says 12 months is the service standard - eek!). Looking forward to getting on with our lives TOGETHER Good luck to everyone else. The wait is excruciating especially not knowing exactly when and if the visa will be granted.

I am slightly worried as 16 weeks have passed.... Have a question. As it is worthwhile to contact my Case Officer and ask about the progress of visa? and what should i write in mail particularly??
Well it's been a very long an impatient 4 months while i waited for the email, but it was granted on 27th June...!! No questions, no interview, just an email after 1 month that I have been granted the visa. They just sent me an email but i didn't receive any, as i daily checked my inbox. Unluckily that mail may came in SPAM folder of Gmail or elsewhere, not confirmed (as SPAM only have last month data). Few days ago when i sent a email to my CO, he replied with the 'decision letter' that they have granted me visa 3 months ago. when i read this i was under shock, dnt know why this happened to me. But whatever Thank God it has been granted, as in last 3 months i have completed my Dissertation. Very soon i will be there in Melbourne with my Hubby...O yeah can't wait My best wishes for all of you
GoodLuck EveryOne

Just FYI for anyone waiting on an FBI background check, I contacted the FBI today, 10 weeks, and its finally complete. Expect to recieve it in the mail within the week. By far the biggest hold up.
