Congratulations!!
SO nice to see a little bit of action coming from RM. Trying not to get our hopes up but feeling (very quietly) confident.

Have you applied for partner visa in USA? This thread is specifically for people who have applied in Washington D.C. embassy.

You all are wonderful, yours will come and it will be so worth it when it does.
Hey guys, long time watcher of this thread. First of all congrats Grapejuice! That's awesome news.

I had a question for you - how did they notify you the visa had come through? Was it via email or letter (snail mail)?

Background: we applied for my wife's 309 visa on March 15 and it has still not come through. Case officer is ML. We were hoping the visa would clear prior to our flight out of the US but unfortunately it did not (we flew to Sydney on Nov 30 - last week). We're really hoping it comes through in December as my wife is supposed to start her new job at the start of Jan.

The visa comes via email from the case officer.

Does the case officer know that your wife is in oz? They should let you know when they are about to grant it so that your wife can get offshore. If your wife is onshore when the visa is granted it will be invalid.

The case officer may always wait until you have to go offshore to come back on another tourist visa (I presume she is here on a tourist visa).

We sent a letter to the case officer about 3 weeks before our flight informing them we would be leaving shortly but didn't hear back. Is there some other way to inform them we are now in Australia? I really hope they don't just grant it immediately while we're here so it ends up being invalid

And yes, she is here on a tourist visa for now, our plan is to do a family trip to New Zealand once the visa is granted.

Talking Visa granted

Hi Fellow Applicants!!!!!

I've been rather quiet since joining the forum but I've been very thankful for all the posts that I've read from the beginning of our application process. This site is a wealth of information and a great community of people in the "same boat"!

With that said, my partner and I have been granted our Visa today at 4 p.m. EST. - after only 2 months and 14 days. It was a seamless process with DIAC in Washington D.C. and our Case Officer (ML) was polite, helpful, responsive and downright fast! I am very thankful for her work and the grant!! I would almost send her flowers if it weren't highly inappropriate!!

We are ecstatic and relieved!!!!!! My partner is in Sydney and I am here on the East Coast of the U.S. So, as all of you know who are not currently on the same continent as your partner, we are elated that we can now officially begin our lives together in the same geographic region.

Best of luck and happy holidays to you and yours!!!!!
