Thanks
I would also like to know this. We are coming up on 12 months since they requested we complete the Medical Examination, so I was hoping to 'bump' it on the 12 month anniversary. Can't hurt...

Hi there wehavent heard anything (still in submitted stage)...front loaded back in April 2019, RFI in Aug 2019 and responded in September 2019 and nothing since. Guessing that maybe they don't want to send out too many visas at the moment when you couldn't even travel there to activate it ? Be nice for some sort of update though :-)

Out of curiosity, are you waiting for a PMV or 309? We applied March 2020 for a PMV which I know is basically not moving at this time but would be great to have others to watch. Thank you!

We are waiting for a 309 - married for 10 years, living in the USA (As the sponsor I am a dual citizen AUS/USA) - We are now looking to move back to Oz to look after my mother - hence my wife (USA citizen, applying for 309 and ultimately a 100)

We are together in the US right now. Both of us are on a temp visa in the US.

I think you can stop spaming every post with your request to sign your petition, we have all seen it multiple times.
While your enthusiasm is admirable, your naivety is self evident.
Do you really believe that the Parliment beset with a myriad of problems , hundreds dead, thousands sick, a million unemployed, and a depressed economy, will give much attention to a petition from less than 5000 , let alone spending time, effort, and money overhauling the system.
As others mention timing is incredibly important when presenting these types of requests, and I could not imagine a more inappropriate time than the present to do so.

You don't need to get annoyed. Just ignore and pass. It was ment for 300/309 spouses who are currently at pain because of the long processing times.

309/100 Visa Grant - 09/01/2020

We are both over the moon! I'll try to provide all the relevant information below, but please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

Timeline:
04/2015 - Met in Australia
11/2015 - Sponsor traveled to United States on working holiday visa
07/2016 - Married in the United States (sponsor applied for permanent residency in United States)
08/2019 - Submitted 309/100 Visa Application
09/2019 - Received RFI for background checks AND Immigration Health Examination
09/2019 - Completed Immigration Health Examination
10/2019 - Finished entering all background checks/relevant information, clicked to confirm we had provided the requested information
08/2020 - Received automatically generated email at the one year mark, stating our visa was still being processed
01/09/2020 - Emailed requesting visa be processed, as medical examinations and other requested evidence was set to expire
01/09/2020 - 309/100 Granted

We are honestly in shock, and did not expect emailing to result in an immediate grant. Our situation is a bit unique in that we were requested to complete the Immigration Medical Examination almost a year ago, but if you are in a similar situation it can't hurt to reach out.

Thank you to all who have and continue to contribute to this forum!

Can I ask who/where/how you emailed for this request? It would be such a great help to be able to contact someone.

We submitted our application decision-ready with medicals and background checks in December 2019, but our police checks were done a bit earlier (Sept/Oct) as we underestimated how long the rest of the visa would take. Sooo I guess we better redo those, sigh.

Edit: Oh, and congratulations!!

First, congrats on your approval! I recently emailed our agent to see if there was anything we could do and she said we could prepare a statement they could upload to immigration. Who did you email? I want to start the statement but do not know who to address.

Our situation is interesting because I am currently in Australia. I was on holiday in mid March before flights were cancelled. We applied for a 600 visa and was granted through January 2021.

My biometrics and police checks expire in October. I don't want to sit idly by and wait for them to expire. Our agent said calling and emailing doesn't generally work. Some people just get lucky.

Nov. 2019- front loaded application
Feb. 2019- asked for police checks (even though already provided)
Nothing since...

PMV 300. I am American. He is AUS PR but has applied for his citizenship earlier this year.

Kindly,

Jess

Sure thing.

We actually just replied to the RFI we received in August of 2019. When we received that email it was 'from' a Case Officer, and although the email itself was from the general correspondence address, if you clicked reply (in Gmail at least) it would automatically fill with a different address. I don't feel comfortable sharing that address, but if you received an RFI it should fill it for you.

Our situations may be a bit different as we waited until we were requested to complete our Medical Examination. As such, the body of my email largely referenced how they had asked for it one year ago, and given it was set to expire we requested they review our case prior to their expiration.

See above, if you have received an RFI you can simply 'reply' to that email.
