Morning Lauren,

No updates since I sent them my police check (last Tuesday). I'm moving back to the UK for a year in just 3 weeks so I'm hoping they get a move on, and then they can hopefully get around to your application. There must literally be one person in the office or something!

For those of you saying you have recently applied or are around the year mark, buckle yourselves in for a long wait! Remember you can easily get a Bridging Visa B for overseas travel (I have done this 3 times) and you can write to the department for permission to work. Best of luck to you all.
Hi Ryan,

Any updates? I still haven't heard anything!
No new here either 😞

Gahh how annoying! I'm sure they'll give you an answer before you go to the UK. If not, you'll have to wait until you return to oz for it to be granted, right?
Do you know if there's a time limit on how long you can spend in the UK while you're on your 461? I can vaguely remember my lawyers telling me i can go to the UK for two years, then would have to re-apply for the 461 to come back or something?!

Hi guys.
FYI finally my visa is granted! I applied in March 2017 (onshore) and I'd waited for 23 months total til a case officer was assigned. I was asked for several additional docs including a new police check and then I've received the visa in a week since I submitted that. I waited a total of 24 months.
Hope this will help someone.

That's amazing news, congratulations!!!!
Can't believe they asked for another police check, it's so cheeky! What countries did you need it for, just Aus? Also, what extra documents did they ask for?
Many congrats again!!

Thanks Vinny and Lauren!
I was asked to submit; * New police check (AU only as my previous police check had expired) *Health insurance *Evidence of relationship (Basically rewrote about our commitment to each other and attached related new evidences e.g. Recent joint bank statements and additional letters from family and friends etc.)

Did you give a lot of evidence in your original application?
So glad to hear you were asked to provide extra evidence instead of declining it. That gives me hope as i worry we didn't give enough in our application
