Submitted payment online and have then uploaded the documents (form 80, 888 etc). It is now just a waiting game till we get contacted by case officer ie: won't get any email confirming receipt of the documents uploaded etc.

And good luck to all those waiting - hopefully after the new financial year that things will speed up.

Also I am still a little confused as to what police certificate I need if I am living in NY. The federal one makes sense- either via FBI or FBI approved outsourced agencies. But local police certificate am a bit confused how to go about doing this.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but we got married last year in Australia and I planned to change my name once I got back to the States. Well life got busy and long story short, I never got around to it. Now I've actually got a little bit of spare time and would like to take my husbands last name. Problem is we've already lodged our 309 application in my maiden name and am not sure if it will complicate the whole thing or how I should go about informing immigration... any advice?

I applied from Tennessee, and did the FBI check, then local police station. Then I read a post on here I think from Skybrewer regarding state checks. There was a link provided, but if you google NY state background check, they'll tell you how to go about it. Tennessee was online, and they mailed to me.

Good Morning All!

New member here. My wife is an AUS citizen and we have been married 2 years as of March 2018 and living on the East Coast here in the States. We began dating in June 2014 and did long distance for about a year or so though we've known each other since 2012. We have submitted and paid for the Partner Visa as of May 25, 2018 and now have an action requirement to arrange my health examinations. I have my exam appointment scheduled for July 16 in New York as it's the closest location to us. Has anyone else also received notice to arrange health examinations so quickly after lodging the application? I've seen a few posts going around and noticed a lot of folks didn't have any updates for quite a while and/or didn't do their health examinations until a few months after submitting the application as they hadn't received notice to arrange the exam. Just curious if this was normal or if receiving notification to arrange the exam so soon after submitting was out of the ordinary. I have a lot of our evidence and proof of relationship already gathered as we also had to compile similar documentations when we had applied for a K1 Visa here in the states prior to us getting married but I've been holding off uploading any documents to my IMMI Account in the event that I shouldn't just yet be doing that. Any suggestions or advice anyone can provide? We're both ready to be living in Australia and starting this next phase of our lives together so we're hoping the next few months fly by quickly and it's as smooth of a process as possible. We've already gone through a Visa Approval Process (K1 Visa) before here so we're very familiar with the long waiting game though we got somewhat lucky that time and everything was completed, from lodging to approval, in 6.5 months.

Good luck to everyone else also waiting on their Visa grant!

Was it an email request by a CO to do the medical with a 28 day deadline?

Everyone gets the online notice that the medical needs to be done. That notice tells you to do the questionnaire in immi that leads to the pdf with the HAPID. This isn't a formal request for the medical but rather an automatic thing. If this is what you're referring, doing your medical this early on may mean you'll need to complete one again as US times are likely to take over 12 months or if you get your grant in under 12 months, you may not have much time to enter (enter by date based on either police check or medical expiring, whichever is first).

Thank you so much for the clarification! I was having trouble finding a straightforward answer so this was incredibly helpful. I'll go ahead and wait until the CO has been assigned and a medical is requested before going forward with one. In the meantime, are there any issues with uploading our documented evidence to our account or should that be held off as well until a CO gets in contact and requests specific information?

No, you definitely need to upload all the required documents and evidence when you apply bar the police checks and medical. If you don't submit anything, they could just refuse the visa. Immigration only recommends waiting for a request on police checks and medicals because processing times may exceed their validity of 12 months. Technically that's all they have to request from you so make sure you follow the checklist on their website and upload everything required.

Hey guys, wanted to see if this update was just on my account or does everyone have the same message. Under the messages section in the immi account it now states "Correspondence for this application is currently being sent to the Primary Applicant at the following email address" and it shows my email address. I have not received any correspondence or messages so just wanted to check with everyone. Thanks

Check your IMMI account correspondence. See if there's anything listed there. Sometimes the emails don't go through for whatever reason...but IMMI doesn't take responsibility for that. If there's nothing there, contact them to ask about the correspondence they say they emailed. You have to be proactive on it, because as I said, they do not take responsibility for non-received notifications/requests. Best of luck!

I'm pretty sure my account has always said that under "Messages." If there is nothing new in the "List of Correspondence" then I don't think you missed a message in your email inbox.
