Hi, we applied July 2017. We had the first request for info after 14.5 months, submitted the requested info at 15.5 months and got the letter to leave at 16 months. By the time we scheduled flights etc the actual letters with the grant came in at ~16.5 months. Good luck on your journey!

So is the grant automatic once you touch down on non-Aus soil? I'm curious how that works - since the holidays are coming up and I'll be in Aus until Christmas but leaving on Boxing Day. Guessing most people will be on holidays but wondering if the grant can be set automatically. Does anyone know how that works??
Actually they didn't wait for us to touch down outside of Australia. It was issued while we were in the air so when we left Australia. I suspect it was set up automatically but I don't know. We included our specific flight #'s and flight times when we advised them of the date we were leaving.

Hi all, im pretty sure this have been asked before but can’t seem to find it. Pls forgive me for asking again.

Has anyone here used a shipping company to move stuff from US to Aus? Which company did you go with?

Thank you

Hey everyone,

Good news! I got a formal request for evidence via E-mail by Department of Home Affairs on Tuesday (December 4th, 2018). I'm quite surprised considering it was barely 7.5 months since I've lodged my application for the 300 and I know there are users out here who haven't heard anything even after their 1 year anniversary of lodging their visa.

Anyways, they've requested quite a bit of evidence. Some of it, I knew, but, I was never aware of the 40sp and that form is completely new to me. And to top it off, I haven't logged into Immi.gov in so long, I forgot how I even navigate it in the first place, haha! Could use some help
  • So, first question: Once I have signed in to my immi.gov account, how do I access the 40sp to fill out?
  • Can I fill out the application on behalf of my sponsor or does my sponsor need to create her own account and then link it to my main application? Similarly, could my sponsor just log in to my main application account and fill it in?
  • They have given me 28 days to comply with the additional evidence. Should I E-mail them back stating I have uploaded the evidence or is there another method to notifying them?

Interesting enough, I did not see a request for sponsor AFP check. We still plan on doing it to be safe but I wonder if it's something they're slowly phasing out? The 40sp is new to me, though. I didn't know we would have to fill it out.

Thanks guys! I'm excited! I know a grant could still be half a year away but I have some hope it may be by my 1 year anniversary of lodging the visa.

You can do it under the same account but your sponsor needs to fill it out. It's similar to the application you submitted i.e personal statements. Just go to new applications>family>sponsorship.


"Submit your sponsorship form and documents online, after the applicant has applied for the visa and given you their Transaction Reference Number (TRN).
You can apply using:
your prospective spouse's ImmiAccount or
your own ImmiAccount. You can create your own ImmiAccount if you don't have one
When you are in ImmiAccount select Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia (300, 309/100, 820/801)."

From the checklist.

Either same immi account or sponsor can create their own. Click new application, family, then sponsorship for a partner. If you didn't know about this, you either didn't read the website checklist or you did and forgot about it. You would have even seen it as an option when choosing the partner visa application in immi. The online sponsor form has been available for years and my sponsor completed it as recently as 2015. The form is for the sponsor to fill out and contains a lot of personal details, as well as the narrative questions for their statement.

Just submit everything requested through your immi account. No need to contact them. There may or may not be a button you can click when you've supplied requested documents but it's not a big deal if you don't see it. They'll get back to your file anyway.

I doubt they're phasing out sponsor police checks as they've only recently added them and they'll be introducing a new sponsor requirement soon that pretty much is based on police and background checks. It's likely it was overlooked or perhaps your partner doesn't need it (12 months or more in Oz in the last 10 years).

Huge congrats to Global6, Dannygolucky, and Rmbnv! I hadn't been on here for a while and it was nice log in to some good news, I'm so happy for you all!

No updates yet for us, we are now just past the 17 month mark and 3 months since we uploaded the requested additional info. We are in Aus at the moment with my partner on an ETA. I've been trying to get settled in for the benefit of my family here but it's quite scary not knowing what the future holds. We have a trip back to the US booked for Christmas and I'm crossing my fingers we get the notice to leave Aus before then, so that the timing will line up nicely. But I know things can slow down toward year's end, so I'm also trying not to get my hopes up too much! And of course, in the back of my mind that nagging voice of "what if we missed something important / what if we don't have enough evidence / what if we said something wrong?". Really kind of an excercise in anxiety sometimes, isn't it? But no sense worrying, instead I'll look forward to the day that I can come on here and say "We got it!!"
