Oh that's great Halyce! It does look like the beginning of July had a lot of people celebrating! The lead up to that way pretty quiet in May and June. I am guessing we might be waiting until January for the next round of approvals.

That's so exciting for you Gemini! Wow Tuesday, after such a long wait you much be beside yourself with Joy! It will be a very HAPPY Holidays for you two! Best wishes to you and your Hubby!
I think you had to wait for longer than anyone else I had seen on the forum applying for a partner visa through Washington. It much have been especially difficult being that you two were apart. It's very encouraging to see it was worth it!

Whoooohooooo TexstraliaCouple! That's great news! I noticed this happened to a few people in May and June then July 1st or 2nd they got their visas! Technically they don't have a "quota" system but they do have a "settlement plan" limiting the number of visas & type issued in a 6 month period. Looks like you guys are top of the list for 2016!
I have actually been hoping to see that kind of email in my inbox, but nothing yet. When did you apply? Had you send them an inquiry of some sort? Or was the email out of the blue?
I was thinking of popping them off an email next week if we hadn't heard anything.

I sent in my last piece of requested info the day before (my police check) and the morning after they sent me that email! We applied June 25th, 2015. 😊

That's fantastic! Really fast. It's nice you have a time frame to work with. We were originally planning to be there for the holidays (even if he came over on a tourist visa) but now we have moved things back until around Australia Day. Hoping we see something by then.

We just got our grant letter a few minutes ago - we got two emails - one with the 309 and one with the PMV!

We front loaded everything and submitted online on the 29th of June. We had two emails from them because my husband had to submit a few more health details but other than that.. no worries and straight forward!

In anticipation, I had already booked our flights so we are out of here on May 8th! Hurry up time!!!!!!!

Thank you all for your advice and shared experiences. It really made this a smooth process and we could not have done it without you!

D.C. musta got their email machine fixed today and were extremely busy sending out those emails.

I got my PMV300 grant letter today through my agent in Oz. 5 months and 15 days. Not too shabby. Even though I went through an agent, when I look back at my earliest posts on this forum before I contacted an agent, I can see what a noob I was and how much I learned from the forum. I feel the agent put my mind at ease making sure I didn't make a colossal mistake, but I absorbed a lot through this forum and now think that I have a good feeling about doing it myself for the 820 to come.

Thanks to the agents and those other tireless, well informed posters that have helped me and so many others to understand the nuances of this immigration process. Now I have to start shifting my concentration from the offshore threads to the onshore ones!

Congratulations Fjmaffia Lorelei and jphilsousa48!!! It must have been a busy day in Washington for sure!!!
I had finally sent them an email Monday night since we were closing in on the 7 month mark and I was feeling a bit discouraged. Then yesterday afternoon (right around the same time as Lorelei) we got an email with the 309 followed immediately by an email with the 100 grant! Whoooohooo!
A Happy Holidays to everyone and hoping the for a very Happy New Year for those still waiting!
Cheers!
