Hey Team!

Just a quick update

I am so happy to report that we heard from our case officer asking my husband to leave Australia as they were ready to make a decision so so happy!!! We were pretty bummed to receive a REF for me - I hadn't completed my version of the online 40sp, and they asked for it as well as my police check. We waited nearly 28 days before the check came in and we attached it to our immi account and waited. I expected we would have to wait another few months, but we were ecstatic to receive an email from our case officer Marie asking that Craig leave the country for 3 business days and then reenter. OH HAPPY DAYS!!! We are currently looking for cheap tickets to NZ - it doesn't help we are already booked up from here until half way through Nov. Craig came to Australia on a Tourist visa (600) for 3 months and it expires on Nov 10th. We were planning on renewing his tourist visa - thank goodness we don't have to!!

Stay strong guys! Never forget that with each passing day we are one day closer to receiving that visa!!!!! LOVELOVE XXX

Ps. We applied on Dec 27, 2016 xx

Congrats ROGERS, that's great news. Wishing you a good start for your life together in Australia
Quick question, and sorry if you've already written this, did you as the aussie sponsor have to supply any US police checks ( FBI, state check etc) or just AFP?

Thanks Swede!!

I didn't have to supply a US police check - I've only visited the US 3 times for a max of 3 months, so I don't think i needed to. I read somewhere if the Aus sponsor lived in a foreign country for over a year, then they would need to provide a check from that country (someone correct me if I'm wrong!) As for me, I only provided an AFP after I was asked for it by my CO. It took over 3 weeks to get, but she was quick to process it and ask for Craig to leave the country. I'm more than happy to answer your questions - please feel free to ask, I will try to help in any way I can xxx hoping yours is close behind ours! Xxxx

I think the most important thing to have, especially if you're worried they'll ask you, is a return ticket or any flight out of Australia.

I have the update that we now have a case officer and have been asked to provide additional documents. The slightly surprising thing is that my husband was approved as the sponsor in the ImmiAccount back i August without having done any police checks so we thought we were OK, however now the US checks were requested about 2 weeks ago which puts us out by a few months since the FBI check takes 12-14 weeks to get.
I hope they have a look at our case before we are able to send the FBI results that so that it goes quickly once it's submitted

My advice to non-american/non PR applicants and Aussie sponsors: Do your FBI check as soon as you can if you think there is even a remote chance you might be asked for it

Unless you're a US citizen or PR holder as you can get results within a week or two through an approved channeler. Obviously not the case for you two but just throwing it out there for other perusers .

Yeah right, sorry I mean for anyone who has no citizen or PR status in the US it's good to get it well in time.
