Hi Canegirl, that sounds good. When did you file?

Hi,
I just joined the forum today!
We just lodged a 309 over the weekend. My partner ad I own and operate a lobster boat in the summer in Maine and were driving tankers in the winter. We are hoping that our visa will be approved by Nov or Dec to get back to Oz for the Australian summer and work there (and out of the long Maine winter!)
Our only concern is when I contacted the DIBP to ask about getting the medical examination done before or after lodging they told me application from North America are currently taking 12-15 months to process.
If that is the case it will put us here next winter, which is okay, but my concern is if the visa comes through in May next year it will be right at the start of the 2016 lobster season. I understand that after you are granted the visa you are given an "arrival date" that you must enter Australia by. Can anyone tell me what kind of window the arrival date has? Do they give you a reasonable amount of time to get you affairs in order or is it only a few months?
Thanks so much

Just received an email saying it will soon be allocated for assessment.

Checklist included mentions passport photographs. Do these need to be uploaded if we are doing an online application?

We uploaded one passport photo for the applicant and one for the sponsor.

Yes, just a color scan of a single passport size photo for both applicant and sponsor (and dependents, if any).

Hi and welcome!

I can't help you with your question, but I'm sure someone who has been through the whole process will be able to answer it.

Applications are actually taking more like 6-9 months, though who knows they could start taking longer. Your entry date is tied to the 1-year anniversary/expiration of your local or FBI police check, or your medical exam, whichever of the three comes earliest.

Thanks so much for the welcome Canegirl, and for the information IndyMama!
My partner had got his FBI check done in the beginning of April when we first started getting the paperwork together. If it does take them a while we may have to do those again, but we'll hold off on the medical exam until we hear more.

Finally...

Hi All,

the wait is finally over! My app has been finalized and I am leaving Australia to go overseas for the grant to happen. Thanks to everyone and the creators of this forum who have been a good support.
