Excellent! I should be good to do the online thing for Washington state then, and deal with prints for the FBI. Thank you for sharing how your process went!

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 fiancÚ 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!

Thanks for the info. I have continued updating my application per yours and E_A's advice. I also did have some brief email contact from my CO so I have my fingers crossed. For you too of course!!!

We had our application approved on July 11th 2019. It was a little more than 11 months from time of lodge date.

You could be very lucky and get a grant soon. Some have got grants in 3 months. However, median processing time for Washington is 358 days (17/18). Current global processing times: 15 months for 75% applicants.
Hope for the best.

I am just behind you! I live with my partner in Iowa, and we submitted her application on August 29, and we received two Requests for More Information: A general one (background checks, birth certificates, etc.) and one for her to complete her immigration health examination!

Did you also receive a request to complete the health examination? I was not expecting it to be this early!

Awesome, best of luck! I was expecting at least three months, but we won't say no to three weeks!

We received two requests as well: one proving and detailing our relationship in recent months (i.e. the past three months), as well as the medical examination. My partner's booked her exam for October 12, so hopefully it gets processed and all before they get back to us four weeks after the initial request.

Hi Mr van Voorst,

I have asked this but not received a reply. In your experience, do direct to permanent grants 309/100 tend to take longer? It has been suggested that this might be why we are waiting so long for my visa (I completed the biometrics in early June; we have been married for 10 years; not going through DC).

I know you can't say anything for certain, but is there any logic to it?

Cheers.
