Congrats! That's very hopeful news. Maybe this means that the Washington embassy is slowly working off the pile...
Were you assigned a case officer at any point or did you just get the grant email without previous contact?

I haven't heard anything yet (applied 30 Nov 2016), but will share updates when I get any.

Yes I actually have a slight update. A case officer finally got in contact with us a couple days ago after we first applied back in August 1st 2016. They asked for one more piece of evidence - the local state police check which we somehow didn't know about having to get. At least this tells us the ball is slowly moving now, even if it's stalled for a few weeks while we work on getting the out of state fingerprints package delivered to us.

I guess any communication is a sign that they are assessing the case, even if it means submitting more evidence. Thanks for the update.

Hi Nervous Sausage,

I also applied mid August, 2016 and just heard from my CO who requested similar background information as yours did. This happened mid May. It looks like we are right on track. Hopefully not too much longer.

Applied for what? 300 or 309?

I believe I applied for the offshore partner visa (309/100). My sponsor (wife) and I have been married 5+ years therefore I qualify for permanent residency (100).

The new database lumps 300, 309/100, 820/801 together--according to my ImmiAccount. I didn't necessarily have to apply for one or the other. They figure it out--I think.

Ummm... you SHOULD know what you applied for. And no, they won't figure it out for you... If I remember correctly, one of the first questions in the application asks which visa you are applying for.

DIBP is unforgiving. If you submitted the wrong app, you're out that application fee. If you accidentally selected 300 instead of 309 and you're married already, you've just wasted a bunch of money. No refunds given.

I suggest you get on to immi, review your application, and make sure you applied for the correct visa.

Hi all

Just thought I'd share my update on my application. We applied late August 2016...
Medicals and FBI check both mid November 2016 and State Police check (Louisiana) late Jan 2017 after waiting nearly 3 months for it!!
We have been together 3 years and have a son. Applied for 309. Had some complex circumstances. Didn't hear from CO until we got issued grant.
Would like to thank everyone on here for advice over last year and embassy in Washington and CO
Got grant 28th March 2017.

My wife arrived in Australia 1st of April. Finally all together.
