Just wondering - when you did your AFP check for the sponsor, did you get your finger prints done too? Or just got the generic one done? Hmmm.

No fingerprints. You just go to their website and make sure you tick its for immigration.

I received my 309 and 100 grants today from the Washington DC office.

It took ~13 months. Good luck everyone!

It could be coincidence, since I did fall into the 75% of applicants that could be processed in 13 months, but the following had taken place this week if interested:

1) I had gotten in touch my CO on Tuesday, 11 Sep 2017, in regards to my health clearance that was due to expire (I had submitted it in Sep 2016 without request). She informed me the following day that she had pushed the expiration to March 2018.

2) In her response to the above, she asked about the status of my FBI clearance. That request along with my State clearance were submitted using the immi portal on 19 June 2017. I responded to her email with the information and attached the files for her.

Checked emails this morning and was very please to see that my application was finalized and I had received the grant letters.

Visa granted! 10 months almost to the day.

It seems that my wife has qualified for the 100 visa already since we have been together so long. I THINK it's related to what you write down for the "committed relationship" date questioning, so not necessarily when you got married. Anyway, a nice bonus when we thought we were going for the 309 only.

My AFP check did NOT require fingerprints but the key is following the code that the CO gives you for the type of check required. Mine was "33" which just checks your name in a database I guess.

Have a great weekend all.

Congrats you two!!
When did you apply bcandm?

No update here. It's been a month since my husband got approved as the Australian sponsor but since then no communication, requests or changes. Crossing my fingers that this will be the lucky month

Ive been seeing some threads here about temporary permanent 309 to permanent 100.
My partner and i had been together for 2 1/2 years at our lodge date (april 2017). its likely our visa wont be approved until after our 3 year mark.
will my visa change to a 100 at the 3 year mark or do i need to apply again?
tried doing a search but wasnt able to find anything.
sorry if this has been covered

It is a time at application requirement so unless you have evidence of being de facto for 3 or more years when you actually applied, you are not eligible.

Hey guys!
Though I am not american, Yesterday I received the first email from my CO requesting a document (certified copy of drivers license from my fiancee), which made me both excited/nervous so I figured it would be okay to come here and ask for advice

Do you guys know if I need to reply to the CO's email? Or if attaching the requested document to my IMMI account is enough?
It states in the email that I need to respond within 28 days and I am just a bit confused as to what that means!
Thanks!
