Im just so frustrated I was hoping after the RFI we would get the visa but obviously no i dont how long we have to wait more.
I got a visitor visa but we are trying to save money so going there is not an option right now, I dint know when we are supposed to plan for our future when we know nothing about it!!

Welcome to the club of people whose lives are on hold. I've had to stay in the States alone in order to keep my job. I'll be able to transfer to Sydney once I get my visa, but it's hard to tell my employer there is no end in sight. It's been 3 months since our RFI (we responded within the week) and we've heard nothing. Hoping it's soon!

How do you update your CO that you are traveling to Australia? I will be visiting my partner April 5-23 and want to make sure they know I'll be in country.

We will be 17 mos waiting at that point (4 mos since RFI) if that makes any difference. We have a name of a CO but no contact info (obviously). Thanks!

For sure! We’ve started to look into the cost of options since we’ve planned on starting a family once we got back to Australia. Due to outside circumstances, we’ve been stateside for almost 3 years, but only filed 9/18. It’s hard to have big plans and no time frame for sure!

Just submitted two weeks ago and now that I'm officially in the holding pattern like everyone else, I am realizing I'm pretty checked-out of work, life, etc. Curious if there's a thread on the psychological toils of waiting for your "real" life to begin?

Oh goodness - I would completely forget about your visa for at least a year to save yourself the mental strife. This has been the most torturous, isolating, detrimental experiencee to my mental health of my life (we are living apart). Sounds dramatic but I'm sure others can agree.

It’s hard enough living together - I honestly do not know how the couples who are living apart do it. Just stay strong, it will come!

Congratulations! You're the second April applicant approved!
Did you go straight to approved or did you have an RFI?

It’s been exactly 1 year today since we applied. And I just recurved the ‘your application is progressing email’
Can anyone tell me how long after they received that they got the Granted email? I’m about losing my mind wondering when it’s our turn...
