Please update this post when you know, if you don't mind.

I have had a similar request (28 days). I am trying to supply one particular background check that is difficult, expensive and not guaranteed. I have my biometrics appointment near the 28 day limit (I had to get permission to leave work).

Best of luck.

I’m in a bit of a jam and I’m hoping maybe one of you or some of you could weigh in as my partner and I are unsure of how we should proceed.

She’s the Australian citizen and in on our original uploads we did not include an Australian Police Check for her but did include a state police clearance from here in the states for her. We requested the Police Check and are essentially just waiting for it to arrive in the mail but of course, since it’s coming from Australia, it takes extra weeks for its arrival.

Here’s where our little pickle comes in. When we received our RFI they did not request an Australian Background check for her. This was odd to me because we’d been under the impression that it was one of the required documents as part of the approval process for the 309/100. I’ve already uploaded the information requested in the RFI (FBI Clearance/Health Examination) but haven’t submitted the button that appears on the IMMI Account that says I’ve uploaded all the documentation that was requested. Should we continue to hold off and wait to see if the police check arrives before submitting it even though it wasn’t requested or just submit it all now without it and risk possibly them coming back to ask for it later? Our last day for the 28 days is on S

Does anyone know if after we select the button that says all the documentation requested has been provided you lose the ability to upload any more documents? If we’re able to still upload documents after we select the button then we’ll just submit it now. We just wouldn’t wanna risk responding back and then not hearing back from them for some time only for them to then surprise us by going “oh hey here’s another RFI...we need the Australian Police Check,” y’know what I mean?

If you provided all that they requested, then push the button.

You can continue to upload documents until you either a) run out of upload space, or b) a decision is made on the application.

So if you've already ordered the AFP NPC, then you may as well upload it when you get it regardless of whether it was requested or not. It's not unheard of for them to do one request, then send out another request for missing items, as if the first person checking it forgot and a different person picked up the case later and noticed it.

Thank you! That’s exactly the guidance we were hoping for. It’s been submitted and hopefully the AFP arrives in the next few days so we can upload that to our documentation as well. Hopefully it won’t be too much longer until we hear a decision.

Oh happy day, it is finally my turn to share the good news! My 309 was granted today after 17 months!!!

Applied: Nov 2017
Redid FBI Check: Oct 2018
RFI: Dec 2018 for both of our AFPs
**never redid my medical which expired Mar 2019**
Granted in the Brasilia Embassy

I just returned to the USA yesterday after 3 weeks visiting my partner in Aus, so I'm guessing that has something to do with the timing. Last week (after a serious mental breakdown) I notified the GSC that I would be uploading a letter from my psychologist describing the incredible mental toll this is taking on me (as we are living apart) (also the reason I had to take some time away from this forum). No idea if this had any influence, but as I've stated before this processing has been so isolating and difficult and you are not alone if you're feeling the same way. Just a tip.

Could anyone share next steps for the 100? I believe we qualified when applying so I will call them tomorrow.

I will be sending all the positive vibes to anyone still waiting. It WILL come~

Congratulations Ladypilot!! That is great news! Hopefully, they overlooked that you were eligible for both the 309 and the 100. Were you together for 3 years or more before you applied for the 309 (or 2 years if you have a child together)? If so, you should have also gotten the 100. Best of luck to you!

HUGE congrats! And what a relief!

I’m just starting to get to the point where I’m seeing grants from people who filed after me - even from high risk countries. It’s such a struggle to stay positive and hopeful, but news like this is super helpful!

Congrats to all who have received their grants!

I'm a long-time lurker, never really posted much because waiting is the name of the game, but I'm a June 2018 applicant for the 309/100 so hopefully we'll hear something in the next month or two. We had a request for medicals in December 2018 but I think that came from the system, not a CO. Haven't had any contact with an actual person and no RFIs. I'm hoping that's not a bad sign!

I'm the Aussie sponsor, so from reading this thread I see that I should be doing an Aussie police check as well as both state and FBI checks in America. Should I just go ahead and start those now, or is there a benefit to waiting? Hubby (applicant) hasn't done his checks yet... we're nervous about his because he has to do a Honduras police check and there seems to be no way to do it other than to send your passport in the mail to Central America (-_-) or to actually go in person... plus their police checks are only valid for 6 months. So we're holding off on doing his.
