Hi everyone! First off, I want to thank you all for being a great help and being very informative! Been reading on the forum for quite a while now and just recently lodged our application for PMV. I just have a question. Does the state and FBI check need to have an apostille? I got my CA state check in the mail today so I was wondering if I should just upload it or get an apostille for it first?

Thank you in advance!

I just scanned my CA state check to PDF format and uploaded it to the immi site. I actually did not get an apostille for anything at all and I got approved with no questions asked.

Welcome to the forum!

I had to Google what an apostille was!!

Just upload both your state and FBI checks as you received them and they will be fine. Make sure you colour scan them though.

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.
Hi there PandK and Blissian! I am on a similar time frame too! I applied for the partner visa on June 9th so only about a month into the waiting game. I did my medicals and police checks soon after that at the end of June so really praying the turn around time is truly 5-7 months as those will expire after a year I believe.

Last night I was granted a Visitor Visa (subclass 600) so I will be joining my fiance in Oz in the beginning of October. At that point 4 months will have passed and hopefully I will only have 2 months or so before I can start working (I'll probably go crazy I'm a busy body). I understand that I will have to let my case officer know that I will be out of the country so they can alert me to leave Oz when my visa is granted. Hopefully this all works out as planned there are so many unknowns with this process despite the research that I (we) do!

Best of luck to you two and keep me updated with your progress!

The best of luck to you as well and everyone still waiting

Yeah, conflicting or outdated info on many of the immigration and consulate website pages drives me crazy! I've just asked as many questions as possible, read as much as I could, and hope that I've covered as many bases as possible. I'd like to think I'm just overthinking and worrying too much, though, and everything will actually go nice and smoothly!

Thank you enduro, canegirl and ketchie
When my fiance saw the state check result he said it looked so plain lol. That's why we wondered if it needed an apostille. Thanks again everyone for the quick response!


Oh P.S. I just back tracked the thread and saw that all 3 of you guys got your grants! Awesome and congrats! Happy for you guys!

HI Pandk213! Also applied mid June!

With regards to Medicals and Police Checks, I have already done them. I did my state check last week and got my result yesterday already. I know they expire in a year, but my fiance and I just wanted to get things done and out of the way.

Anyway, good luck! and it's nice to meet people who applied in the same time frame as me.

Thanks mshaz. Yes we have now decided just to get everything done now and get it all out of the way.

It is really good to meet people who have applied at the same time ( US2AUS, Blissian and you) - hopefully we will all be on track for grant in November! Good luck everyone!

My fiancee and I are hoping to spend Christmas togther here in the sun and then be married in February
