@salmon1411 - this is off the home affairs website: “For instructions on obtaining a certificate from an overseas government or law enforcement authority, refer to the relevant country information.
If you are required to provide an Australian police clearance certificate because you have spent more than 12 months in Australia within the last 10 years, you must complete the Australian Federal Police (AFP) National Police Check application form which is available from the AFP website:
AFP National Police Checks
You should use Code 33 at Question 1 on the form and include details of any, and all, names you have been known by.
If an AFP certificate is provided based on incorrect information, we might request another certificate. State and Territory issued police certificates are not accepted.
Note: Fingerprints are not required for AFP National Police Checks.”

You usually just submit your information online and pay the fee. They processed mine in about a day, but it took about 3 weeks to arrive in the mail. Hope this helps.

Hi Ozbound3,
reading through the whole forum sounds like a great effort I'm just curious if you could share in more detail what pattern you recognised?

Haha yes I have to do something to cope with the anxiety of waiting. I noticed that for a while there in 2015-2016 the visa processing times were 12-15 months but people seemed to be getting approved in waves and there were a lot of approvals between 5 - 7 months. But it seems like things started slowing down in 2017 and the 11-15 month processing times may be a bit more accurate these days

Yeah right, during the time I’ve been part of the forum it as definitely feels like it takes around 11-12 months, if not more in many cases, and that there we’re only a few getting approvals earlier.

A general question:
How much time does one get to leave the country once the CO notifies to do so? Are we talking days or a couple of weeks time to get out of Australia?

Varies and likely depends on the validity of the health or police checks.

I was contacted and asked to leave by the end of May or I'd be waiting until the new fiscal year in July. My first to expire was police check in November. We could have waited until the new fiscal year if we wanted as May wasn't a deadline for us but a suggestion to avoid delays.

Thanks skybluebrewer, and how long was it until the end of May when you got that message?

I’m basically trying to find out for myself how far ahead they usually know if the grant will be ready. For example, do they know if something will be finalized in the coming 2 weeks?

Initial contact in March. It didn't sound like they were intending to do any grants in June as the fiscal year came to a close, so that's why I was given the option to leave for the grant anytime before the end of May, otherwise not to make plans to leave for the grant until after the new fiscal year in July.

BUT, if that police check were to expire in April, let's say, I likely would have been given until that date to exit for finalization and reenter before the expiry.
