Welcome Blissian, My fiancee (US) just applied for her PMV mid June so I guess we are in the same boat. Lots of waiting but and hopefully DC will keep the 6-7 month turnaround period that seems to be happening currently.

When are you planning Medicals and Police Checks? I think we are going to do in couple of months and just get them out of the way and not wait to be asked by CO.

Hey Pandk! I've already done the police checks and was going to do the medicals in a couple of months as well. I'm hoping the turnaround is that short too! I see there's someone here that's apparently still waiting who applied in October Honestly though, I don't care when I get my visa as long as I eventually do and can get back to my fiance. Being so far apart is not the most fun as I'm sure most here can relate to.

i believe applicants don't always hear from a CO unless additional documents are needed... we should be hearing back in the next two weeks...

We weren't assigned a CO, just an email sent after 5 months asking for the police checks and medicals.

Sit tight, hopefully you will something soon!

So this is weird. We just got my husband's report back from the FBI. We used a channeler. Now he just has to do his NYS background check.

I just happened to stumble upon a page on the Australian Washington embassy website. It is the infosheet for partner visas.

It says -

"Please note that you will need to provide both a U.S. State penal clearance from the state in which you currently reside AND an FBI police report. Police checks from channelers for FBI police checks are NOT acceptable for Australian immigration purposes."

There is so much misinformation between the department and the embassy and what is actual practice.... we'll see what happens I guess but can't they just have one document and stick to it?! LOL
