Yep, they scan them and return them, typically.

Case worker assigned yesterday asking for some additional documents. It took exactly 5 months for someone to start working on the application.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that my wife's visa has been approved, it only took 3 months and 10 days.

Not sure if this is relevant to Washington time frames as my wife applied from Pakistan.

Good luck to everyone who is still waiting for their partner visa.

Congrats, emkas. Hopefully the grant will swiftly follow. So now that you and carobear see movement, maybe I'm next since my app was submitted next in line (here, anyway)? Would be nice...

Wow, that's insane. Usually Pakistan takes a LOT longer due to external security checks. Congrats to your wife! And no, this isn't relevant to DC applicants - but we're happy for you anyway!

Just attaching documents online now...
Does form 1221 and form 80 need to be attached? It's in the list of recommended documents but I haven't seen it in previous checklists..

And also, if I attach a birth certificate and passport as evidence of citizenship/in other areas...then there's another upload link for evidence of identity...do I upload one of those documents again or does each document only need to be uploaded once?

Form 80 is being asked for more and more, so I'd go ahead and complete/attach it rather than waiting to be asked. I'm not sure about form 1221, but I don't think it's needed.

If you've attached a document once, that's enough.

Hey Emkas congratulations that is awesome news! When I emailed the Australian Embassy in America they told me that all applications will be taking 12-15 months even if they were previously done before the change. So it is good to know that they may not be sticking to this and hopefully we can see some more people being contacted by their case officers in the next few months. I just wanted to ask my partner sent off his national fbi check for america 6 weeks ago and still hasn't recieved anything back in the mail, how long does it roughly take to have these documents mailed back to you after mailing them? Ugh it hasn't even been two months since my partner and I applied for the visa but it is killing us having to be apart from one another. Looking forward to seeing more posts about visa's being approved or case officers being assigned. Gives me hope!

What's the real story here? I can't do offshore if it takes 12-15 months. How could any offshore applicant make that work? are they just hedging and really it's more 9 months?

Nope, the real story is budget cuts (fewer processing officers) and way more applicants. If they say 12-15 months, they're saying it for a reason, and most will probably take that long. Probably a few shorter, but I wouldn't count on it.
