We applied PMV 11th Dec 2016.
Haven't heard anything yet, but we checked my fiancè's immi account last night and his status has gone from submitted to received. So we are taking that as a positive. Hopefully we hear more updates soon. I seen another thread yesterday where the posters fiancè was from the states and they had recently received a CO. I think they applied in November 2016.

My small update is that my ImmiAccount now says that the sponsor (my husband) is "approved" My status is still "received".

brooklyn waiting

hey everyone. I have Been reading this forum for ages and its been very helpful to me, so I decided to finally join and contribute.

Applied for our off shore Partner Visa (300,309/100,820/801)
in late april 2017.
hes in australia already, doing the back and forth visiting thing.

All my evidence has been submitted with the exception of my medical, and FBI.
I figure i have a bit more time before i need to do my medical based on the wait times im seeing on the forum from washington.

thanks for all the help everyone. just playing the waiting game currently.

Although the app is the same for all three partner visas, which one did you actually apply under? Since you applied in the states, it's either de facto 309/100 or the prospective marriage visa 300.

Also, don't forget you'll need state police checks as well as the FBI one.

You'll need a US state police check for any state you've lived in for 3 months in the 12 months prior to applying. That is in addition to your FBI check.

Go down to the "Police Check" section, and click the link for "United States of America" to see info on police checks. It also gives info on approved channelers you can use that gets you results in a week or two rather than 3-4+ months directly through the FBI. I used Accurate Biometrics and paid 60 USD for an email copy and original via post. Had results within a week of sending app.

Does anyone know what happens once the sponsor is approved?
Could this mean that there is a CO assigned but he/she has not made contact?

Our Timeline:

Submitted police checks: Feb & March 2017
Submitted medicals: April 2017
Husband entered Australia: August 10, 2017

Craig called Ottawa before he left NY for peace of mind as we were worried about not hearing anything for months lol! We asked whether we had a case officer assigned to us, and we were told that we had one but they hadn't made their contact information known to us.

Right now we are just waiting it out. Hopefully we all hear something soon! Xxx
That's great that they were able to give you some information. Did you apply through Ottawa or Washington DC?

Hi swede!

We were told to contact Ottawa for visa queries we applied from NY (so through Washinton DC.) When did you apply?

Question about the 100 visa? We applied for the 309 visa (off shore) and ive been reading this thread and i have seen a few people automatically get the 309 and 100 - how is this possible? Xxx
