Also, just to let you guys know - I updated the Timeline on the first post of this thread. Champ messaged me to let me know that after a LONG sixteen months (unbelievable!) his visa was finally granted.

I know the embassy says 12-15 months, and I am prepared to wait that long if I have to, but maybe they're hedging their bets a bit and some of us will be pleasantly surprised with an 8 or 9 month wait... here's to positive thinking (so much better than slipping in to the missing and frustration I know we all feel having to be away from our beloveds).

Just curious if there was anything particularly complicated about this case that took 16 months?

Definitely not asking for any more detail than anyone wants to share, just wondering if the department had any reasons for taking so $%&#@# LONG on this one!

Champ is a champ for patience!

No idea. Champ didn't say.

New applicants HOPING for 8-9 months is cool - I'll hope that right along with you all, or even for less! But any/all big plans made (around leaving jobs, selling houses, nonrefundable wedding deposits, etc.) need to keep the very real probability of 12-15 months in mind.

ABSOLUTELY!! Hopes are one thing, solid plans another. Flexibility a must! And patience.

How exciting! Congratulations carobear!! Thats awesome news for you and the rest of us aswell Its so good to hear that they are finally beginning to work on some of the cases from the beginning of this year. If you dont mind me asking how long into your application was it when they sent you a list with a checklist? My partner has just got his medicals done and we are just waiting on his national police check and than everything is done on our application Good luck to everyone else on this forum and i hope we see some grants soon for those who applied early this year!

Hi all, long time lurker here

309/100 - Washington DC - Online

Applied: Late Feb '14
Medicals/Police Checks submitted: Early April '14
Auto-generated checklist emailed to us: Early June '14
CO Assigned: Never
Approved: Late August '14

We never received any correspondence (apart from the checklist auto-email) or were notified we had a CO. First time we heard from them was the approval email, which was pretty much 6 months to the day from submitting.

Hang in there guys, as much as the radio silence is deafening, you shouldn't read into it.

Best of luck to everyone waiting, and feel free to add me to the list on the first page.

I hope this means good news! I received the checklist just under 2.5 months after I applied and then I submitted the medical and police check about a week after that. It's doubtful that there is any kind of pattern to the process but we can hope!

I just got back my police clearances and passport photos back from DIBP with a note..

"Dear applicant

Please find enclosed your original documents which are not required when processing your application.

Your application is ongoing and you will be notified as that process continues.

Your sincerely,
Department of immigration and border protection"

I guess this is normal? I guess they just scanned them in?

Suppose it answers 1 question.. Some one did in fact see it..

Time to wait some more
