Any news ?

Just wondering if there have been any more approvals from DC recently. We submitted back in April 2019, RFI in August and our response in September. Our submission has a status of submitted and really there has been no other communication. Are we likely to get a phone call if they need more information or will we see the status go through various stages or is it different each time. We are hoping if there is any question about approving or not that they would contact us. Starting to get nervous after a long wait.

I have the exact same timeline as you and haven't heard anything since submitting all the RFI.

We are hoping to hear something around the 12 month mark (July or August of this year), but have started to prepare slightly for the big move.

We just finalized a contract with a Pet Transportation agency, and will soon schedule to have our dog take the rabies titer test (which will begin a minimum 6 month countdown before he can be sent over) - we expected this to be a big chunk of money, but it still hurt making the payment!

We are also working with real estate agents in anticipation of selling our home, but not wanting to sell just yet as, again, we don't know when we will be moving...it's also difficult to know whether the home will have offers within weeks, or if it will take months to move (our neighborhood seems to vary significantly).

Finally, we are updating our resumes and doing some preliminary job searches over in Perth, as we will both be moving without a job lined up.

Is anyone else experiencing stressors like these, which are compounded by the 'unknown' time period for the visa to process? If I knew we would be approved by October, for example, then we could plan a bit more, but everything has to have this weird window of unpredictability around it.

The biggest concern for me is not knowing when to put the house on the market (don't really want to be paying a mortgage while living in Australia if it doesn't sell, but also don't want to find 3-6 months of accommodation with a dog here if the visa takes too long). Open to any tips or advice from others who have experienced, or are currently experiencing problems like this!
We are in the same boat. We have to go to Australia for a wedding in late August this year and I got my RFI in August of last year so just wringing my hands and planning. If I have to, I'll head over on a tourist visa and just leave when I need the grant but there are so many moving pieces involved in moving and I'm so stressed!

My husband and I are the same. We’ve even gone through all of the import requirements for our dog and because we have no idea when we will be approved, my husband and dog will actually being going back in August and I’ll just be waiting here until I get approved.

It’s scary not knowing. It feels like our lives are on pause just waiting to get started. We’ve done long distance in the past but not knowing how long we will be separated this time is nerve wracking.

We decided to leave at different times mostly so that we both don’t go over without jobs. I see you both are dealing with that as well. Luckily, we are in an apartment instead of a house, but it’s hard to renew leases not knowing how much longer I will be here.

We also have car leases and things to figure out. Not knowing a leave date makes planning near impossible.

I wish I had advice for you but hopefully this at least provides comfort to know that there are others in a very similar situation.

Hopefully we all hear soon and can focus on our futures.

Any new approvals lately?

Looks like the last approvals from this forum were May 11 and May 14., and we are now approaching mid-July.

Two months between approvals gives me pause. Are they still processing? Hopefully they start warming up again now that we are in the second half of the year...
