Question

Has anyone from this group entered Australia on their visa since the COVID lockdown? Wondering if we'll be having additional troubles considering we're not on the special flight paths they've just started...

Honestly, I've had 4 flights cancelled and I'm getting real stressed since I only have til May to get into the country.

Do you mind me asking what your flight path is? I know they've just opened up that route from London so I'm wondering if we'll have to literally travel around the world (moreso) to get home. I hate that they're prioritising business class.

Thanks for posting, encouraging news that some applications are still going through < 12 months. Where did you apply?

Applied online, but while US resident. Moved to Canada two months ago and submitted change of circumstances in system, so don't actually know whether it was processed in Washington DC, Ottawa, or in Australia proper.

honestly given I'd moved to .ca I was worried they would ask for .ca police checks but since we'd just arrived they didn't ask us.

Question on Police Checks

Just received an RFI today for my 309/100 application, less than 2.5 months after submitting. Quite a surprise! We expected the request for an FBI check and a medical (I was planning to do those next year which I thought would be in plenty of time) but they also asked for proof of immigration status (we are in the US on a temporary work visa).

What I did not expect was to get a request for a Louisiana state police check. We lived in Louisiana for 2 years from 2014-2016. My understanding was that state police checks were only required for states we lived in over 3 months in the last 12 months - so I had assumed LA would not be required since it was so long ago. It will be a pain to get so just wondering if anyone else had this experience and whether it might be worth trying to push back against this request?

Thanks!


Timeline:
Feb 2004 - start of relationship
Dec 2005 - started living together (de facto)
Dec 2009 - got married (in Australia)
13 Sep 2020 - submitted 309/100 visa application
25 Nov 2020 - received RFI

Have you included certificates for all the states you have been in within the last 12 months? If so don't Push Back, just ask for clarification as to why they require the clearance

Yes, the only other state I spent considerable time in is Texas where I have lived since 2016. I already supplied that police check with my original application in September since I was at the DPS anyway to get a new drivers license. Since it was only about $20 I thought I might as well even though I thought it would surely expire before they got to my application.

Thanks for the tip - I have asked for clarification. I can sort everything else within a few weeks but the Louisiana check will take a month or two unless I drive over to Baton Rouge.
