Hi all, yes this is why I asked about where people's visas have come from because my RFI came from Brazil. I'm hoping this pain is over soon. After seeing that E_A_ updated things through the "change in circumstances" in the immiaccount, I'm wondering if it would help me out to do something similar. Although the only thing that has changed in the last month is that I came back to visit my husband in Australia after being in Bali for 3 weeks.

Any thoughts would be welcome! Thanks for all of the support on here all. What an agonizing time.....

Hey! I was thinking about you earlier and was wondering if you had any updates. Awesome you got to spend some time together recently! It’s my understanding a post-trip update isn’t worthy of a change of circumstances. I got back from Perth in late June and just added more evidence to the document pile. Even though you just got back, do you have any future travel plans that you might book soon? It seems a lot of people have done the change of circumstances to alert immigration that they are traveling to Australia in the future but I’ve not seen where people have done it retroactively.

Are you back in the States now? I ask because i recently learned that application processing has more to do with your address and less with your country of origin. Sorry to post misinformation!! Did you know it was from Brazil based on the email address or was it listed in the RFI letter?

Hi Hi!

I am still in Australia now and am hoping to get one of those cryptic notifications to "go offshore". When you talk about processing time and address are talking about my permanent address listed on my application? That is my Michigan address but my husband/sponsor's address is in Australia. How do you think this affects processing timing?

About the CO...I know that my application is being processed through Brazil because the RFI gave a name and said "Brasilia" behind it.

I have thrown around the idea in my head of trying to contact the CO maybe but then I also think that probably isn't going to get me anywhere either.

My husband resubmitted the forms requested about 10 days after the RFI and he had to press a button on the immiaccount that that something to the affect of " I have uploaded everything and my application is complete".

I would like to add more pics of our trips together but not sure if A) I can B) it would even make it into the application.

I'm. wishing you the best as well and hope we both hear something soon!

I added updated text message and phone calls logs after hitting the button that I had submitted requested documents, so yeah you can continue to update your info!

I just was curious if your application was being processed out of DC to begin with or entirely out of Brazil due to your travels. Just trying to figure everything out because the processing times very so much from embassy to embassy. Sorry to be nosy!

I've read that unless you're beyond your original processing time, contacting them only gives you a canned response that they are still processing it. :/

You can keep updating until you reach your limit of files. The "I uploaded everything" button is just for the required RFI information. I view the updates as extra credit so definitely do an update! I hadn't seen my fiancť since February, spent June in Perth and when I got back to the States, I wrote a 2-page statement (signed and dated it) about what we did together and annotated our bank statements to correspond with our activities. I also attached photos, receipts, call logs, etc. to show Home Affairs that we have an on-going, genuine and caring relationship.

Hope you get to spend a long weekend in Singapore, Bali or Vanuatu soon!

For the state background checks, (specifically in Washington state), do you pick the one that needs fingerprints?

I would assume all US State Police checks require fingerprinting. My state did, and of course the FBI check did.

Washington state has an online option off of just name/DOB so I wasn't sure. For reference, the Washington state request form

For my Georgia state police check, I just signed a release form and the lady looked it up in the system and printed off a thing that said no record found, then stamped it. Got it done at the same place as the fingerprints, got the fingerprints done for free as the sheriff's department also housed a county jail. I'd gotten two copies of the fingerprint forms from a sheriff's office in another county, so the fingerprint technician did the livescan and printed on both of them, told me I could keep the second copy for my own records.

Arizona is a pain since they won't supply a check with any personal info. Also they won't supply for immigration purposes!
