Seems like March is slow but steady. Better than the ghost of February

Smile 309/100 granted

More good news for March! My US husband received his 309 AND 100 grant on 12 March . This was processed in Washington D.C.
Initially, we submitted all documents except medical and character.
We received contact from a CO in February 2019 requesting evidence of eligibility to marry and immediately uploaded divorce certificates, which were also in the original application documents. The CO also requested the medical, which was promptly done and uploaded. I then clicked on the all documents submitted button.
It was the same CO for RFI and visa grants.

Thank you forum members for your input, including questions and answers.

Special thanks to Skybluebrewer, who offered sound and pragmatic advice and gave succinct answers - I really value your input.

May as well join the band wagon.
We applied for 309 in March 2018 and got the letter 2 leave Australia ( currently here on a 12 month tourist Visa). Did all our medicals, checks, etc within 2 months of submitting our application. We hadn't heard anything until today.
My view on wait times seems to be 12-13 months atm and as long as u dont receive any RFI.

So exciting to see lots and lots of movement in the last few weeks! Everyone seems to be at about 1 year....so I'm kind of freaking out. We're at 15.5 months, and 3 months since responding to the RFI.

Probably a moot point, but is there someone HELPFUL I can call or any way at all to get a status update? I just feel like we've been lost in the shuffle and I'm seriously starting to worry.

Ours was 1 day short of 12 months - with an RFI.

I can imagine it's bittersweet when others are getting approvals, meaning there's movement in the camp, which is a good thing, but not for you. I'm not sure if the type of RFI is important. Ours was for proof of eligibility to marry, which we'd already supplied but uploaded again, and to do the medical.
Also, once I uploaded everything, I pressed the button at the bottom of the page where one uploads documents saying that all information has been supplied. I didn't even realise it was there until I read advice given on someone else's post.
I understand your frustration and perhaps a phone call to Home Affairs in Canberra may not hurt.
Look forward to reading your "Yipee!" moment
