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!
Yes congratulations canegirl, ketchie and enduro - great news guys!

One question you may be able to help with - were any of you required to submit form 80? and do you know if this currently a standard requirement through DC?

Form 80 is a very thorough background check form. We've never seen any Americans asked to provide it (that I'm aware of).

Thanks IM and CG - it was on the checklist after we applied but sounds like its one that we won't be needing

I submitted Form 80 at my agent's behest to prevent potential delays. I wasn't asked for it, though, and I haven't heard of anyone from the US needing it.

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
Thanks for the information. I didn't know we needed a State Police check. We already got the FBI checks (through a channeler, lol). We'll get right on it.

Ok so we are in the situation where we are now waiting.

Just for some background -

Me - Born in Australia. Won the US Green Card lottery, moved to the United States in 2008, got married in 2010, became a US Citizen in 2013.

Husband - Born in the United States. Have now started the process for his Partner visa so we can move to Australia.

29th June 2015 - Application submitted online - got in before the price rise.. WOOHOO!

13th July 2015 - FBI clearance received (took 4 business days)

24th July 2015 - New York State Police clearance received (took 8 business days)

24th July 2015 - Medical check completed

Our dream would be to be able to leave the country on May 1, 2016. That is all we are hoping for... bring it on!
