Also we sent in an email to the CO on March 11. We explained that when we sent in the app, we had timed it so that we would hopefully be granted in time for us to leave for my brothers wedding and that we didn't want to have to go back and forth from US to Australia because it would be costly and that if my husband wasn't granted by then, he would have to stay back to wait the grant while I went ahead to move and attend the wedding. We also stated that his app was decision ready.

Without the support of this forum community, I think I would be bald by now so thank you so much to everyone. Hang in there, the wait will be so worth it.
YAHHH!!!!!!!!! :-D :-D :-D Sooooo Happy for you Miss :-D

Does anyone have experience with having applied from the US, then going to Australia and "not residing with their partner for say...8 months on travel visas" and then getting an email from a CO saying you need to be outside of OZ to be granted and to please allow for at least 5 business days for us to continue processing? I am curious about the actual wait when people have gotten such an email...

Or was everyone else more organized than me and didn't play the bounce across the Pacific game for two years before applying and then another year of waiting?

Just got back to Oz and am officially a permanent resident

Can anyone provide a quick rundown of the PR rules? It expires in 5 years so it has to be renewed before that, right?

Only if you do not become an Australian citizen by then. Otherwise, you need to get it renewed if you need to travel outside Australia. If you stay for at least 2 years in these 5 years, you get it renewed for 5 years. If your stay is less than that, you get 1 year renewal.

But all that is based on current rules. In 5 years, rules will be a lot different.

lincsus are you referring to the resident return visa? https://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/155-157.aspx

Yes, RRV will be applicable after PR visa expires and you still need to travel in and out if Australia. If you keep in staying in Australia, you do not need any visa. PR lets uou stay in Australia indefinitely.
