I think everybody feels this way, especially if they do the application without an RMA. But if you're worried about it, that means you've probably checked it over quite a few times, so not likely you missed anything at all!

That is great news Yankee! They must be moving through the list from early this year since you got contacted shortly after I did and I only applied a few weeks before you!

In other news, my fiance landed on Saturday on his 462 and we are currently enjoying a small get away together. We have received and submitted his FBI check but are still waiting on his state check. Also have had to wait until these past few days to make his medical check since our nearest bupa location only takes appointments a week in advance for some reason. But overall just happy to have him here for Christmas!

Woo hoo! Just two days after lamenting that we don't have an update, we got some great news this morning!! The email came in overnight advising my partner to leave Australia so his visa can be processed! I'm so relieved!

The email says the Dept is closed for a portion of the holidays (the 25th to the 30th, plus the 1st) so we're not sure if our upcoming Christmas trip to the US will work for he visa to be issued, but if not we should be able to wrangle enough money for my partner to visit Bali/NZ/wherever in the new year.

The letter doesn't say if we got the 100 visa or just the 309 (still keeping my fingers crossed on that) but we are happy either way!!

Congrats! Hope you guys get good news soon!! We also got contacted by immigration recently but it wasnít the good news we were hoping for. To our utter disbelief, they asked for a second round of further information. When they contacted us the first time, both my health and FBI checks were expired. I was in the process of getting both of them redone but I stopped because they didnít request that info so I figured what we had was acceptable. We submitted info and waited 2 months until they contacted us again on Friday for me to get FBI checks done again. Iím honestly infuriated because they should have asked for those the first time around if they wanted them updated but inexplicably they did not. So now we have to hope that we donít have to wait another 2 months before they respond to us again. Also we were contacted by a different case manager which was interesting. Not sure why but that might explain the second request. Anyway we are approaching 17 months and I will be absolutely devastated if it doesnít come before Christmas. Iím glad some people are getting good news. Hopefully that means ours is around the corner.

Don't fret, Kjmag! You're almost there. Pretty soon, they won't have much more to request from you and you'll get a grant. The fact that they've approached you twice is still good news! It means they're considering your application. They could have just rejected and moved on in their pile as well and claim they've already contacted you before.

It's not uncommon to have multiple COs working on a case file. Apparently, anyone can pick it up at any time. Even several years ago, I had more than one CO on a file.

Yes youíre absolutely right. I had an initial panicked reaction because I had expected to be getting the visa rather than them asking for more info. But now that Iím in a more rational place I realize this is progress, even though itís slow and I feel like we have no control over it.

KjMag ..was the second request you received due within 7 days?

For the rest of the group, we supplied our info after an RFI (timeframe 28 days - submitted Oct) and have now received / another RFI Dec 5 (timeframe 7 days - submitted Dec 5). Is the timeframe any indication re how soon they will approve our application? Hoping because the second RFI decreased the timeframe from 28 to 7 days it means good news is around the corner?

No ours was still a 28 day time frame. I just submitted everything this morning. Hoping it gets looked at soon too. You submitted your info at the end of nov and still haven’t heard anything?

We received the letter yesterday! We applied for the 300 in November last year and got the request for further info a year and a day later (wedding date/place), which we provided within a couple of days. We feel so relieved! Now to plan the OS trip.... Did someone mention closing dates for immi? I was hoping we could take a trip together but really only have the Christmas week off work. Want to be on the safe side.
