I did the 80...not sure if it's required or not. I also have my adult son migrating and did an 80 on him as well.

We originally did the 40SP for my husband, but after following this forum and realizing he had to answer the 5 questions about aspects of our relationship as well as me, we thought we had better have my husband/sponsor start his own immi account application as the sponsor. A sponsor application covers the questions on the 40SP (although the 40SP asks about the details of the sponsor's home which may or may not be applicable) as well as the relationship questions...so I don't believe you have to have a 40SP attached to your application if your sponsor has an immi account and his/her own application. I think it's either...attach 40SP and the 5 relationship questions to your application or have the sponsor open an immi account and fill out the sponsor application.

Did the sponsor do the online form? If not, then s/he should do it as it's required. There's no need to do the paper 40SP (hence why it's not on the online checklist) and they prefer the online sponsorship form.

As already mentioned, the online sponsorship form contains the 5 narrative questions, and those count as the sponsor's statement. A statement from the sponsor is also a requirement so the online form kills two birds with one stone.

The sponsor can either do the sponsor form from your immi account or create their own, it really does not matter which.

Form 80 is listed as a requirement on the website (and has been since Nov 2017 I believe) so if you didn't do it, you'll likely be asked for it.

When I applied in November 2017, the only recommended online form attached to my sponsor section was an online 40SP form (no other forms). We filled that out, but no where in that section does it give you the opportunity to fill out those 5 relationship questions like it did when I filled out my application. That's why I was confused as well. That is why we went ahead and created an immi account for my sponsor and filled out a sponsor application. It covered it all.

A question for those still waiting or who have recently had applications approved... When did you receive the email/status change to “application progressing”?

We applied June 30th 2017 and have heard nothing since. Our application still has “received” for the status, as it has since the day we submitted.

I’ve seen applications from earlier in June being approved and thought ours could come through at any moment, however I’m starting to get a little nervous. Especially when applications lodged later than ours have something to indicate it might be progressing. Any insight is greatly appreciated!!

Yep, he did the online form right after I did mine, including the 5 narrative questions. 40SP still shows as an optional document to upload, which is why I was confused. I didn't realize they were the same thing.

Form 80 isn't included in the online form, though? I will have him do it if not.

No form 80 is a separate form to be done by the applicant.

Question about this actually: we did the 47SP (applicant's application) online and later realized we needed to do the 40SP as well. So we filled out the 40SP online using the same immi account.

Now they're both listed in the account, but the 47SP (applicant's) says "Received" and the 40SP (sponsor's) has been stuck at "Submitted". Should I be concerned about that?

No, that's nothing unusual.

Exciting news! No not my approval. But we have booked for the family to start our new adventure in Aus! I will be travelling on my ETA that is still valid from our trip this Easter. We leave beginning of Dec!

I think I will get my police check done soon just to have it while I'm here.

Question, where do I advise on the immi account that I will be travelling to Aus? Any other advice anyone has on travelling on an ETA to wait for the approval is APPRECIATED!
Thanks!

Hello! I'm new here.

My husband and I are just beginning the process for my 309/100 from NYC. We both live here in the States and we're ready to go back to Australia for good.

Really hoping for some lowered processing estimates this week, but at this point, we know not to make any plans - it happens when it happens!
