That's great you heard something too!! I LOVE that my status changed to "initial assessment" from "received"! May I ask if that was your first RFI? I am curious if it's common for the CO to send further requests as they progress through the application or if they do a more thorough review up front to avoid numerous RFI's.
It’s the first one we’ve gotten! From previous reports, DC is generally quick with grants once information is supplied. We have 14 days, so fingers crossed for a grant by the end of the month (wishful thinking!)

Our application says further assessment hopefully gets processed in a reasonable timeframe (don't remember when the status changed unfortunately). We applied June of last year. And submitted medical after the first RFI to expedite the process and be "Decision ready". Hopefully speeds things up!

Ooh, thanks for that site. That's helpful!

We received our RFI on June 19, but then had an issue because the judicial system that we needed to get our Honduran police check from was closed for most of July. So we submitted all our other stuff by July 14 (along with the explanation of why the final check would be late), and then submitted the final police check on July 30, after it had been translated. So it's only been like a week haha... I'm just impatient! Plus I keep thinking that our case is so strong that they should be able to approve it easily once they look at the new evidence. But obviously that's wishful thinking Looks like we might have another few months of waiting according to MyImmiTracker. At least there's nothing left to do.

We're June 2018 applicants as well. I hope yours is processed quickly! When was your first RFI?

So DC seems to be making lots of moves! I just got an RFI for my fiance's birth certificate. I'm so happy to see something other than received on that login page!

Apparently I updated you all too soon today... we just got our golden email!!!

309/100 both granted, for entry by August 8, 2020. We applied June 29, 2018, putting our application at 405 days, or just over 13 months.

Super stoked! Best of luck for everyone else still waiting!

Big Congrats, we also got approved today and applied in June of last year. However for us was just the 309 for now.

We are flying to Australia next month- anyone have any issues flying on this visa or questions by airline staff? I looked in the vevo system and wife's 309 is in there so I assume should be good to catch a flight and not require an ETA?

Those with a long term relationship, at application, are definitely faster than the rest, at reaching PR.

Some 2019 subclass 100 grants this year:

katemdf from USA had the 100 granted, direct from 309, due to long relationship in 12 months
BeeBee2 from USA had the 100 granted, direct from 309, due to long relationship in 10.9 months
Ozbound3 from USA had the 100 granted, direct from 309, due to long relationship in 14.4 months
JaneoOz from USA had the 100 granted, direct from 309, due to long relationship in 14.6 months
aussieinamurka from USA had the 100 granted, direct from 309, due to long relationship in 13.3 months


ROGERS from USA had the 100 finalised after 4.9 months. This was 28.9 months after 309 application date.
stateson from USA had the 100 finalised after 2.8 months. This was 26.8 months after 309 application date.
Ella77 from USA had the 100 finalised after 1.8 months. This was 25.8 months after 309 application date.
