I'd like to hear from a Sr. Member of the forum, but in my view, it's a good sign. Your application is at the top of someone's "to-do" list, and it's being actively evaluated. In this limbo of silence, to me, any communication is good news.

I have a quick question: my fiancee and I have a new "Plan A". We want to be together, and this forced separation is too much. I've decided to move to Australia on my Visitor's Visa (ETA), 3-month no-work visa. When 3 months is up, go to New Zealand and return, and restart the clock. If my PMV Visa gets to approval, I have to leave the country, probably to New Zealand, before it's approved. Then, return to Australia on the PMV Visa and live, marry, apply for the permanent Partner Visa. Do you think DIAC will have a problem with that? Is there a problem in this that I haven't seen?

Hi Everyone,

I got a random e-mail from the embassy most likely, attaching a checklist and all forms that need to be completed. Obviously I front loaded the application with all the information. At the end where their signature is suppose to be, there is a "?".

Sounds like a boilerplate checklist sent out to everybody. I wouldn't worry if you've already provided it all. Sounds like somebody forgot to sign it, lol.

There's not a problem with doing this. People do it all the time. You'll just need to let the embassy know. In fact, after waiting 8 months, my then-fiance and I decided to do just that. I notified DC - no response. A few weeks later, when I was actually about to leave the next week for Australia, I sent them a polite reminder, and my CO responded (literally the business day before I was due to fly out) with my grant email! But I wouldn't imagine there's a chance of that happening unless you're much further into the wait, unfortunately. Just letting you know what my experience was.

They understand that people who love each other need to be together, so doing the ETA isn't a big deal.

I just tried hitting reply to the e-mail I received and sure enough, it went to an actual person and they may be the actual CO. MD, does that sound familiar to anyone?

I got this same email with no signature and a checklist attached a while back. When I hit reply to the email the email address of the person who sent it to me also had the initials MD. I don't think its the CO, just someone who works in the office as the email states to make sure that everything from the checklist is completed so that when your application is assigned a case officer it will be ready for processing.
