We just uploaded my fiancÚ FBI check online, never had to send in the originals.

Yes, it's just a state background check. My fiancÚ just filed an application in online, paid and then he received his background check within two weeks. We just googled and found the application, sorry I'm not much help!

Okily dokes - update from us!

We just got an email from Irene to ask my husband for to do his medical check. As noted earlier, we risked it and did ours earlier, so we just wrote back to say we had already done it. Logged in and clicked on 'My Health Details' and it says -

"Health requirement – health clearance provided – no action required
All health examinations required for the specified visa subclass have
been finalised. Once this person lodges a visa application, additional
health examinations may be requested where circumstances have changed
or additional information is provided to the case officer."

So I guess we are in the home straight...?!?! Eeeekkk!

Do you know what website? Looks like Texas makes it where you have to go into a location and get fingerprinted again for state check.

This thread has been very quiet so I thought I would wake it up with a question.

Why does immigration require that the applicant leave the country so that a visa can be finalized? The only thing I could come up with is so that in case the visa application is not approved, they don't have to go hunt down that dejected applicant to boot them out. Is there a better explanation?

We got approved!!

Happy Melbourne Cup Day!!

Woke up to this lovely message from my husband this morning!:

"You have been granted a permanent visa which allows you to travel to and remain in Australia indefinitely."

He almost called me at 3am when he got the notice, but after being married for 5 years, he knew the perils in that.

We applied April 30th, so just over 6 months to approval

He got 2 emails, one saying the "partner provisional" visa has been granted, and then another saying "partner visa subclass 100" has been granted.

does this mean he doesn't have to wait for the 2 year decision? (sorry still half asleep here!)

Yay!

Its to do with the class of visa applied for,some class of visas are only available to applicants residing outside Australia. I presume the visa you are referring to is some sort of partner or PMV.
