Hey BAKanga-- how long did they give you before your 'must enter' date? Was it tied to expiry of your medicals or police checks?

Hi IndyMama

It was tied to my hubby's medical date, exactly one year from that, September 2015 until he must enter. We have also been married 12 years so we went straight to 100 which was also a big relief.

That's great to just be DONE with the whole process, bigapplekanga! Now it's just RRVs or citizenship for your husband!

Did your husbands police checks expire after his medicals?

I'm just trying to gauge how consistent DIBP is - and whether I should go ahead and order new police checks for myself, given the (dubious) quoted timeframe of 12-15 months.
It sure will be interesting to see if the July applicants start getting their grants - that will give us some insight into whether that 12-15 months really only applies to July and afterward.

His medical checks expired after the police check. Police check expired in August. I'm hoping more people see grants really soon, especially Mellie and HP as they applied before me.

IndyMama - I wouldn't get them done again unless they ask for them. They DO have the power to extend them by a certain amount, which with low-risk applicants they often do. My police checks were expired when my visa was granted, FWIW. They didn't give me long to enter, but my CO already knew I was ready to enter Aus the next business day anyway (since I'd told her I was going on a tourist visa). I think typically they give at least a month with expired PCCs - if that would be enough time for you, in all likelihood you'd be okay. Up to you, though.

My FBI checks expire April 1; thats 7.5 months after application. Given that they are taking nearly 4 months to get, I don't want to wait until April to order new ones. The local state police expire March 10, but that one is quick and cheap.

I see your dilemma Indy, you wouldn't want to get to that point and have to wait 14 weeks for another FBI check. I would wait until end of Jan by which time (fingers crossed big time) you may have a CO and you can ask them if you should be considering getting another FBI.

I honestly think that most visas will be approved from the 6-10month mark! So hopefully Hprotagnist and Mellie see approvals very soon and than the rest of us! I agree with Mamabear, Indymama you should wait until January and than see what your situation is like than.
