I had my medical done in Australia at BUPA and it took only a few days. Further Assessment is the phase before approval so unless they need something from you,
they may not contact you at all.

Edited to add: we got an RFI in August, moved to FA after submitting everything and have not received contact nor do we expect too.

HI All, I finally got my notice to go offshore in mid September (since I have been in Australia with my husband on a tourist visa). I left for New Zealand on Sept. 29 and my visa -permanent residency 100 <img src="http://www.australiaforum.com/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> was granted on September 30. Woohoo. Wishing you all the best. From what I'm reading maybe they are speeding up the wait times! 11 months was long enough...especially after being together 10 years...
That’s awesome! So happy for you guys!

Okay, thanks! Health check passed this morning, so now we're just waiting on the FA status.

Does anyone know how long it takes to be updated (i.e. approved or messaged) once you've been advanced to FA status? They said we had four weeks to submit all the relevant documentation, and that's well and truly passed.
There was only minimal documentation added/required (recent proof of our relationship from the past 3 months and my partner's health examination, which was approved).
Maybe it's just my natural impatience, but I hope they get back around to us soon!

It can vary. It could be days or months.

With our 300 application, we were in further assessment in the October, (after submitting requested info), but heard nothing more until the grant the following February.

Wow, really? I was hoping it wouldn't be that long; given how quickly she went to RFI, we were hoping it'd be done come Christmas. Here's hoping!

243 days since we submitted and 32 days since the last day to submit the info for our RFI.... crickets. We were hopeful they would log-in on the last day of our RFI deadline, see that we had submitted everything (sponsor's background checks/info) and approve but alas, no contact. I'm not too surprised since it seems to be common that people still wait months after RFI's, hear nothing and then receive grants out of the blue. At this point, we expect them to grant it around the one-year mark (March 2020) which seems to be the average. I have flights booked for Christmas and at this point will have to return to the States regardless if they grant it prior to Christmas. Hoping you guys get a grant and can take a one-way to Oz!

Wow. I don't get why they say that we have four weeks to submit the required information for the RFI if there's no time window that they're going to get back to us after those four weeks.

Yeah, they gave me a date for end of December for the 4 week turnaround when I got hit with a RFI. Next response was the very end of Jan with a 2 week turnaround followed by a grant in March.
