Another update;

We have finally had some news and have been assigned a case officer! They've requested a new Police Certificate which we will send off ASAP.

He's included an attachment which says the London Processing Times are currently 10-12 months.

We applied in May 2018 to London by post, so we are outside of that window.

Will continue to update you all

We have had the same email, we have been assigned a case officer and have been asked to submit a new police check, so relieving to know there is progress. Shame the ACRO police check is a snail mail process. Do you think we can scan and email the certificate through when we receive them rather than posting to Australia house?

@NZRo have they sent back your application? A lot of the stuff they sent got returned to us today. Hopefully this means they don't need it anymore!

We’ve also had contact. They have sent a request for police checks for all countries lived in for the past 10 years (NZ, Aus & UK) hoping it won’t take to long to get these... At least they seem to be processing applications!

We've had contact too, looks like someone's doing some overtime at Australia House!

We've been asked for updated police checks as well as further evidence of our relationship for a 6 month period in 2018. Unsure why, I thought we provided plenty but happy to oblige of course.

@Annie1234 They sent back our birth and marriage certificates and the police checks my partner did previously.

So I emailed my new police certificate to Australia house this afternoon, checked my email about 3 hours later and had a visa grant notification email. Over the moon! Good luck everyone 🙂

What a bizarre surprise this morning - visa granted today!

Application lodged on 13 March 2019, granted 20 August 2019. I’d just notified them of a change of address and that I was entering Australia on a 482 visa (I was fortunate enough to be sponsored by my new employer to cover the up-to-2-year wait for my 461), two weeks later I get an email asking if I still want to continue with my 461 application and next day it’s granted. Someone definitely seems to be working overtime in London!

Yes we've received some original paperwork back in the post too. I think this is good news. We applied for the new ARCO police check immediately, so it should come through in the next few days. We plan on scanning and emailing it to the case officer.

We lost hope with the 461 and ended up being sponsored by my employer into Australia on a 482 visa so we are actually already in-country and we will have to hop over to New Zealand/Bali for the 461 to be issued and the 482 to be cancelled.

Trying to make contact with the case officer to arrange this is proving impossible!

Will let you know when I hear anything. Good luck everyone.
