So we've handed in all the police reports, which was the last thing outstanding on our application. I find myself checking my emails constantly like a mad person. Any idea how long after you've handed in their last request to hear anything back from immigration ? I think I'm going mad with anticipation.

Hi
Once you have provided everything and had the medicals, then it is a waiting game. Some people never hear anything until they receive the email grant.
Washington has been a bit varied with waits of 12 months or more at one stage but recently times have improved.
Your partner being from a high risk country may push the waiting time out further as the DIBP will be reliant on the turn around time of security checks (if any) in his home country.

Hi all
Time marches on. It's now 8 months since we filed. Took a while to get required documents for various proof aspects. Medicals done, more stat decs done, as it's been a while since the last ones. Phoned FBI processing office and was told the report will be ready soon.

All the best to those of you out there still waiting!

HI everyone, I posted this on another thread, but I think it might get more advice here.

My husband submitted his application on April 30th. Today he received an email from the Washington Embassy regarding his application and listing the documents to include, most of which we already uploaded. We have yet to do the FBI check, but will get onto that asap.

My questions are:

1) Do I as his sponsor also require an FBI check? I have lived here in New Orleans for the last 5 years.

2) it mentions for the sponsor (me) we must include: "an AFP National Police Check if the sponsor has spent a cumulative total of 12 months or more in Australia since turning 16", which I have. How do I go about this?

3) "Police certificates from each country in which the sponsor has spent a cumulative total of 12 months or more in the last 10 years". For me that is both Australia and the USA. What exactly do they mean by Police Certificates??

4) "evidence that the sponsor is a settled Australian citizen". While I am an Australian citizen, I haven't actually lived in Oz for 5 years. I am moving home in September. Will this affect the application any way?

ugh, I'm so stressed and overwhelmed! any advice will be appreciated! We've not got a CO yet, so I don't know who to ask

Hi Everybody

My Fiancee and I have just submitted her PMV online - 21st June (and beat the price increase!). We have attached everything we think we will need (hopefully!!) except the Medicals and Police clearance - which we were advised by DC to do a few months after applying. It was certainly a bit of a maze negotiating everything you have to pull together by way of evidence and documents and this forum has been a good help.

So I guess it is now just a waiting game - hopefully wont be too long until we can be together here in Perth.

Any approvals in June? Seems like after a flurry of activity in May there's been total silence in June. I guess they are really saving everything for the new fiscal year in July. July will be my five month mark.
