I'm super-psyched to see the last several people granted only had waiting times of 5-7 months. Really hoping that pattern holds again! (I will only be slightly bitter for the class of us unlucky enough to have 8-11 month waits when DN left and the position wasn't rehired for quite a while).

Congratulations on your visa! I am hoping that my partner and my visa is approved in the same amount of time. How long did it take you to be assigned a CO and did you already have your medicals, police checks and all your paperwork uploaded before you were even assigned a CO? Thanks, looking forward to hearing back from you. Felicity

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Next time I will see my partner will be 11th of March.

We changed our phone number and we called their office to tell them but their on a public holiday today (4th august) - but the message said that you only need to make changes if its to a different address or email has changed.

can anyone confirm this is true? i mean they only call for interviews right? if they even give you one.

You're unlikely to face an interview. I wouldn't worry about it too much, but Form 929 is what you want to notify them of changes (including phone number). I'm sending mine in today as well.

Thankyou CollegeGirl and AUSUSA8892!

Felicity, we didn't front load everything. When we sent our papers in we sent the police/FBI checks with the application except the medicals. Our application date was January 29, 2014. My husband sent his medicals like 3 weeks after. We didn't hear from our CO until June 19, 2014 requesting for a statement that they found on his FBI check years ago, we had to send that in within 28 days. Once we did send that in our CO was satisfied with the outcome and told us that since his FBI checks will expire July 22 they can extend it for 3 months until October 22 which my husband will need to make arrangements to fly out before that date. My husband was in the process of renewing his passport because his expired in April and our CO requested it because they said they will make an early finalization in August.
I think it really depends on everyone's case and also which CO everyone gets because one particular CO might be reviewing a few cases at a time than the others. Looks like MW is new and works fast! By the looks of things, hopefully it does stay within the time frame of 5-7 months.

SteveRozet, did you organize the medical before submitting your application? Then just forward the results once you had those?

And congratulations!

We're sending in our application August 24th online. From reading this thread it looks like having at least FBI check done, and possibly medicals, the process seems to move along faster.

Wondering if I can get input on whether people think it's worth it to organize these now or wait till we're told to?... Seeing as we're only 3 weeks out from applying I'm thinking probably organize background/ police checks but wait to hear about organizing medical..

Thankyou!!
When we sent in our application, the only missing document was the medicals. My husband actually organized it a week after sending in our application. Luckily he got an appt the following week but had to drive 3 hrs to get his medicals done.
We wanted to get everything done before they had asked us to just incase Washington was working faster this year. The only reason why his FBI checks expired early was because we were meant to send everything last year around September but it got delayed until January 29 of this year. We thought he would have to do his FBI checks again but our case officer said she will extend it for another 3 months meaning we didn't have to renew it. I would suggest getting your FBI and medicals done even before they ask you to.
Hope everything goes well with your application!
