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

Cheers.
The one I just posted about went straight to PR. It only took 4 months. I canít see why it should take longer if sufficient evidence of a long term relationship has been provided.

Thank you. It has taken longer (we submitted 9 months ago) but we moved to several countries after getting together/before submitting (we work overseas so that that an be together), so that may contribute to the longer time frame; I thought that immigration looked at evidence before asking for health checks and biometrics. I am quite sure we have enough evidence, as we had to be highly selective on what we gave. Twelve years worth of evidence is a lot.

Been trying to make an account for months after lurking for a while on these boards. Just wanted to share that we got our grant notice today! Was not expecting it so ridiculously quick.

- Applied for 309 on June 10, 2019

- Got a call out of the blue from a case officer asking some random questions, followed by a RFI email requesting the police checks and health exam on August 27, 2019

- Scrambled to quickly book my fingerprinting appointment and medical exam. Submitted all results on September 25, 2019

- Received the grant email today September 30, 2019!!

We applied for the de facto visa and didn't have much hope for a quick turnaround given everything I've read so this is amazing!

Congratulations! Wow, that is a quick turnaround.

I'm in a similar boat - submitted our application 29/08/2019, received request for Medical and Background Checks on 19/09/2019, and now we're scrambling to get it all submitted within 28 days!

Would be amazing to have as quick a turnaround as you have had. Again, congratulations! What date do you need to enter the country by?

That's super awesome for you guys! Congrats! Thursday is the last day of our RFI so we're hoping they log-in, look that we submitted everything and approve it. I have flights booked for Christmas and would love to cancel my return flight!

Thank you! Hopefully you hear back quickly as well!

My entry date is exactly a year from my grant date (today) so September 30, 2020, which at least gives me plenty of time to organize everything.

That's dreamy - you'll be able to leave on your own terms. We're hoping for the same!

Also, shortly before November 2020, so you'll be able to leave just before things really hit the fan politically...I'm hoping I can watch that from afar.

Haha that's true! Planning to be long gone before then.

Also, not sure if this is relevant to you, but fair warning to everyone, I had to get an Australian National Police Clearance because I lived in Australia for a year and they have to mail the results. It took a long long time to receive the letter, and I thought I was going to miss the 28 day deadline for my RFI because of it. So definitely try to get that submitted ASAP if they request it.
