Great news, everyone! My 300 grant came in yesterday! So stoked! Now I got to plan my arrival into Australia. Dual citizenship is one step closer, haha!

I really want to thank everyone on this forum, especially skyblue for her guidance. Hope you guys are willing to help (and of course, I will help myself first) for the 820 piece in some months!

My grant was about 11 months. Not bad. I anticipated 13 months when I had applied.

Guys,
I can't believe I am finally able to say this, but I GOT THE GOLDEN EMAIL!

Our 309 grant came through last night, and we are beyond excited to finally be able to plan our lives.

Thank you so much to everyone who shared their thoughts/suggestions. What a great community to be a part of!

Other Requirements

Copy of your sponsor’s birth certificate.
****So here, it's specifically highlighting it's for the sponsor, AKA me. So this makes sense****

Character requirements – Police Certificates

In order to be granted a visa for entry to Australia you must meet the character requirement. You must provide a police certificate from each country where you have lived for a total of 12 months or more in the last 10 years (these 12 months are calculated cumulatively and need not have been consecutive)....
****If they wanted this for the sponsor, would't they say, sponsors police certificates? Also, being an Aussie citizen, I don't need a visa for entry into Aus as it mentions in the first sentence. The language here, to me, is referring the the applicant****

So it still leaves me wondering, what on earth are they looking for with the police certs, because they already have it!

Wasn't sure if someone else was in the exact same boat as me here in terms of the RFI docs. Reading other posts here, I know mistakes CAN happen, so hoping it's just that. But will try calling them on Monday to see if they can clarify over the phone.

But just in case, I will also look into doing the FBI and State check for me. So, thanks for sharing!
hi esiyah, congrats on your grant! as the sponsor, did you end up getting FBI and police checks done? My sponsor does not currently live in the US but did for 4 years. We're wondering if we need to arrange for him to have FBI, CO and VA police checks completed. Thanks!

Thank you!

Yes, I did end up getting the FBI and state police checks done for me. I didn't want to leave any stone unturned, so just did it. My policy, better safe than sorry.

With thanks to someone in this forum who suggested I go to Accurate Biometrics (in LA for me), it was super easy and quick to do.
