(Spouse visa!)
Have you heard anything from a CO? We applied around the same time so I am trying to gage how they're working...

No, nothing yet. We are tentatively planning to pack up the end of April, visa or not.

I just did my medical on Wednesday (and there goes another $325) and I am mailing out today my police clearances (I've reached the max number of files on my application so can't upload more). FBI check took 14 weeks to come back; State check: about a week! Good luck.

$235 for med check is a relative steal! Cost $500 in NY - if my visa doesn't get approved before it expires I will be so mad! I had it done in September a week after I applied when I was still under the naive assumption that the 5-7 month waiting period they quoted on the website was correct.

Thanks for the update on FBI check wait times, cec2725...I am now on week 13 and haven't gotten mine back yet. My credit card was also charged about a month after I sent it in. Hoping it doesn't get too held up with the holidays next week.

My husband sent his in two weeks after me when he realized he'd need it - he has lived in the US for over 4 years, so was told he needed to get one, too.

When did you find out that your husband needed one too? I was unaware my husband would need one since we dont have any kids.

I read about the 60-document limit for uploads, and when I started reaching the limit for my PMV application (lodged in July), I began uploading documents to my fiance's sponsor application instead on the same immi account. I don't know if this will work for everyone...but worth a try!

My fiance insisted on phoning immigration in Washington to see if he could get an update--nope. But he did ask them a question that was bothering him (because I keep adding more documents and he was worried that it would delay the application). They reassured him that the processing time is from when the application is lodged, not when the last document is attached.

I really hope to read on this forum soon that someone has good news--cheer us all up a little!!!

Ok, so tourist VISA question:
I applied on October 2 for a partner visa (309/100). I've been married for 5 years (Australian husband) and we have 2 kids (both got their Australian citizenship and passport). Our case is pretty straight forward. We all live in the US and we are moving to Australia on February 2. I won't have my partner visa granted by then so I have to get a tourist visa.
I would like to get a tourist visa, subclass 600 for 12 months (As according to their timeline, it can take up to 15 months to get my partner visa granted and if it does take 15 months, I would have been in Australia for 11 months and I would like to avoid having to leave the country numerous times until my partner visa is granted).
Has anyone got one in the past? if not, and let's say I get a 6 month tourist visa and my partner visa is not granted when it expires, can I request an extension of my stay WITHOUT having to leave the country? Flying in and out is just too expensive and I'll probably have to take my kids with me as their Dad will be working, so I really want to avoid being in this situation as much as possible.

Also can I apply for a 12 month tourist visa and if they think I shouldn't stay 12 month on a tourist, can they grant it but for a shorter period?

Thanks

Hoping the New year will bring good news to us all! It has just been over 5 months now since my partner and I lodged our application and still havn't heard anything from our Case Officer. Hopefully next month!

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!
