So exciting that we're all getting closer! Thankfully this year is going fast. Crossing our fingers for a March 2019 approval 😄

My current police check will expire in Jan 2019, however, if they asked me to re-submit anything at that time, it will take me 14-16 weeks to get a new one --> leading to unnecessary delay.

Any advice on whether they ask for a repeat police check after the current one passes the 12-month mark?

Also, I haven't heard a word from the AHC since Dec and its been more than 9 months now. Anyone else here who applied in that time frame? Would you like to share any updates/status?

Thanks!
Yes they'll ask for a renewed police check. (just had to redo my AFP check, as they asked for a new one) I would keep an eye on the processing times, and just make sure 14 weeks before you reach that date you apply for another one.

Hi everyone! First time poster, long time lurker My partner (Mexican citizen) applied for a 309 visa in may 2017, we had been living together in NYC for 2 years at the time of application, and got married in March this year. We didn't hear back at all except for the automated email on 1 July this year, then a request for medicals and a couple of other items in mid July. We submitted straight away and didn't hear back.

We called the call center yesterday and they confirmed docs had been received but couldn't confirm timing for approval. Next morning, we get the email that the 309 visa was approved!!

So for all those waiting out there, a polite call might help accelerate the process!!

Hey all, I know I read this a while back but has anyone applied for a 6-12 month tourist visa for australia to wait out the approval process? If so what reason do you give for the visa? Is it simply you are there to visit your husband?
Thanks!

Hi, we applied for the 600. Got my wife a 12 month multi entry visa. I stated the reason was to simply keep the family together as we waited for the approval of her 309/100, as i had to start a new job in Sydney and we couldn't wait in the US any longer.

they only came back with one question, which was why we needed a multi entry, to which i replied if my wife needed to go back to the US for a sick family member or christmas etc etc that she had that option. It was approved in about three weeks all up.

I applied for it and got denied...I was honest and said waiting for pmv, spend time with partner and make wedding plans. Others apparently have said the same and gotten 6 or 12 month. Seems to totally depend on who processes it, and what kind of ties you still have to the states to give you reason to return. Although I don;t know why anyone would risk their pmv overstaying their tourist visa! I came over on 3 month ETA.
