Yay! A huge milestone! No, you don't need to communicate to them that you're done uploading everything - when they look (which likely won't be for a while) they'll see everything is there. You know you need at least 2 form 888s, right? When they granted mine, they told me that they have the discretion of extending the enter-by date by 3 months past the "expiration" of the police checks or medical checks. If yours are good through July 2015, I bet you'll be fine as long as the DC M's keep rocking the approvals at 5-7 months. I ordered new ones just in case too, but didn't end up needing them. Contest on getting the application done!

Edit: meant to add also that you won't upload anything for the medicals. The panel physician communicates results directly to DIBP.

THIS JUST IN! (hubby called me at 4am with news as promised lol)

309 Visa approved! 7mths 4 days. Entry date in September 6, however hubby is already booked on a July 8th flight to Australia with myself and my son and my parents! - I'm excited he'll be coming home with all of us as his welcoming party/escorts

I did speak with Immigration in Australia yesterday so we knew the application had just been sent back to CO M for decision and did think it more than likely we'd hear today. Hubby had also said on Sunday 'I think we'll hear/know by the end of the week'.
It's nice to be right!

Phew, now that's out of the way ... time to plan more exciting things...like my son and I joining my hubby in the US in 6 weeks for a few months and making babies...

Thanks everyone for the support over the last few months!! XX Kirsty

that's awesome. congrats!
I am still waiting by the mailbox for that FBI clearance. we got coated in a sheet of ice yesterday and the mail carrier completely failed on his oath "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." it was like the 1st on the list... but hopefully as we thaw out a bit today he brings me that final piece of the puzzle that is a partner visa and we join you tomorrow with good news from Texas.

We get Ice / snow every few years.. we are expecting 4in of snow tomorrow Am then its going to be in the mid 50s in the afternoon. so we may get to see every season in 1 day... funny thing is we were at a wedding on V day and it was almost 80. yesterday the high was 29.

thanks for the support. This group has been awesome. its good to have friends in the same boat and understand what we are all dealing with.. friends and family have no clue..
